Hey all, I decided to lay down some bass and a few guitar parts on this one. as well as a reverse crash thrown in for good measure. I hope I did this awesome track some justice. Had a real blast getting to play producer in a mix comp, hella fun. Cheers and good luck everyone.
EDIT: Made a few level adjustments to a revised version based on some helpful feedback. Cut the bass gat level by 2db, as well as bringing my guitar additions down a notch or two.

Lovely bass on this, Terry - nice final chorus too. Mix sounds great.


#3

Hey thanks @ColdRoomStudio, I really appreciate your feedback bro.

Hi Mister Hesticles,
I like the mix in general. It sounds good and the tonal balance is good too.
I like and dislike your bass, why ?

  • for the verses you choosed to ignore the first chord, that is very weird for my ears, maybe am i wrong ?
  • for the choruses, you did it man ! Really nice bassline.
  • bass is 2 deebeez too loud for me ?
    You guitars :
  • well made, i can recognize your touch ! Nice
  • they probably need some 3/4khz.
  • once again they are loud too.
    The ending is a good idea ! You once again decided to move something in the harmony and that is cool
    What did you put on the main guitar, i can ear a kind of modulation fx ?

Good job Dingo Star

Thanks @Moa22, nice feedback as I can always expect from you man. I used an ADT to split the main gat, so you you might be getting a bit of modulation from that but I think it’s not so bad really.


#6

It is not, I quite love it


#7

Cannot vote. What’s wrong with your pool ?


#8

I dunno bro…


#9

I also cannot vote and noticed that you have two mp3 players in your entry.

I like the mix and also your added bass and guitar parts, but both were louder than the rest of the mix and didn’t blend as well as possible.


#10

Thanks for the comments man, I removed the player, hopefully fixed voting problem, cheers.


#11

The voting is still not working. Maybe one of the site admins can take a look.

Hi T. Hesticles,
Really good mix.
The first time I heard it, I agree with @Moa22 the F# on the bass sounded bizzare to me.
But I guess this was because i had got used to hearing 1000 times the song with A chord on that specific point.
The 2nd time it sounded fine to me.
I also believe I would prefer the bass a couple dbs lower but in general it’s a top mix.
Congrats and good luck.


#16

Hey thanks ManAbyss. yeah you’re probably right if you expect to hear that A played in that specific section it’s gonna sound a little weird. One of the first moves I made was using a high pass filter on that main gat right up to around 250Hz in anticipation of a bass line, so for me, not really hearing that low A being played on the main guitar, the F# was the only option in my mind. Playing the A seemed a little too ‘expected’ alongside that sweet vocal melody, whereas the F# just felt more satisfying, to me anyway.


#17

Nice up-front and clean vocal. Oh! Dramatic entry for the bass. Interesting bass part and very well played. Maybe it could be pulled back a bit so it doesn’t take attention away from the song? You definitely took this in a different direction! Your additions were well executed!


#18

I agree with miked. Pull the bass back some. :slight_smile:


#19

Thanks Mike.

@BigAlRocks
