Hey everyone, this is my final mix for the competition. Pretty straight forward, no changing in arrangement or anything. The only thing I did was cut the breaths before the vocal lines and cut the last personality on the backing vocal track a little short, to match the main vox. And I didn’t use all the DI guitars, didn’t feel like it was needed to achieve the sound that I wanted. Mixed on Logic Pro X, with stock, Waves, Slate and Voxengo plugins. Hope you enjoy!
Bashing as I listen:
Wow, the drums are big right off the bat! Perhaps too big as they kind of dwarf the vocals?
Same for the guitars. The vocals is a little buried behind the wall of sound.
Even the lead guitar would need a level push against the rhythm guitars.
Good tones throughout though, as an instrumental, it would work well. As a song, the vocals need a little more attention IMHO…
The vocals are a little dark for my taste, could be a little brighter and more up front. Listening with a sub, there isn’t much separation with the kik and bass. I feel like the bass could also use a little more high end to get the pick attack.
