I’m confused. Are we supposed to leave feedback or was that a final entry? I thought rough mixes for feedback usually went into a BTR section?
This is his entry. I added the poll option. I may have to tweak the poll so that it doesn’t show who voted and what their vote was.
Hey there, Alan. I like what you did here.
Guitars sound nice. Nice tone and balance. The vox sound a little thin to me. You did something different on the vox at 0:28 thru 0:33, and again at 2:50, probably just for a change-up. Very creative! Actually, I like that mix on the vox better. Thru the whole song!
The bass seems a little thick and heavy relative to the rest of the band, to my taste.
Band otherwise blends nicely. Good energy.
As usual, good work here! I agree with @Tesgin about the vocals… I really like what you’ve done with doubles to spread them out a bit. At like 39 seconds though it sounds like the doubler comes back a little bit late so it’s in the middle of a word. I’m wondering if the doubles are causing any phase issues as well, which could thin them out a bit. Minor stuff though… nice balance and is a really enjoyable listen!
Cheers guys thank you for the feedback and glad you like it
Nice solid mix as I would expect. Good balances all around. I don’t care for the doubling effect on the vocal however, but that’s a taste thing. I can hear a bit of over aggressive de-essing around the 2 minute mark. This was a hard vocal to deal with. Although I’m sure you’ve probably cranked out 40 mixes since you posted this so can barely remember what you did. Nice job!
Hi Alan, overall a pretty well balanced and full-sounding mix. The vocals are nice and up-front without sounding unglued from the mix. As a whole, the mix sounds very cohesive.
A few observations:
Lightening fast results as usual, Alan!
I like the mix, but the vocals switch between being narrow and wide in a jarring way at odd times. Also the kick drum is kind of inaudible for most of the song. Still doesnt sound bad though, everything else sounds good to me.
Cheers for the feedback guys
Nicely done. I would agree with @Jclampitt I would like a little more presence of the kick. Maybe a little more boom. Although i really like the presence of the bass and that may cause some conflict.
