I enjoyed your mix. Good balance and panning choices overall. I liked the effect choices as well.
Areas to improve (by my personal preference, of course):
I listened on monitors and headphones, and find the mix a bit heavy and slightly sharp in the mid-range overall on both, missing a bit of air on the highs and some of the low end. I am hearing the same thing on several other mixes as well, though.
This is a small criticism. Kudos for creating excellent clarity overall!.
I think the second guitar could come up in the mix a bit.
I still hear the buzz on the main guitar a bit, but it was really a bear to completely kill it.
All of these are very minor and could easily be fixed if we had more than one entry…
I pulled up two windows, level matched the songs and A/B’d against several other mixes, and yours held up very well.
I hope everybody else is listening by level matching and directly comparing to other mixes. It is the best way to hear the difference in the details.
I enjoyed your mix. Nice job, and good luck to you in the contest!
I bet it is warmer where you are today!
