    Mixing advice needed for retro song (Piano+Vocal)

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hello, everybody !

    Could you please advise me, what can I do to polish this old-time russian song?

    Below are piano and vocal tracks synchronized. Piano is made with Pianissimo plugin, as for the vocal, it is just a dry signal.


    Piano_demo.wav: http://www.divshare.com/download/12304008-259
    Vocal_demo.wav: http://www.divshare.com/download/12304009-680

    Do I have to apply noise reduction, normalization? What would be the low freq filter threshold and the slope? Do I have to EQ this vocal to make it sounding good with the piano? Do I need reverb or something like this? Whick volume level should I put for tracks ?

    I have Waves plugins (Vocal, Mercury bundles), which of them would work for my purposes ?

    Any help would be good, thank you very much !

    Think real hard about this one. Which Waves plug should you use for an olde tyme retro song...?


    The good news is your tracks sound great. Sum them together at the same volume, listen to it like that for a bit, and decide what it needs from there. My guess is it needs nothing (or close to it).

    Not that I care that much, but what you guys are discussing here has NOTHING to do with mastering.

    You're talking about simply mixing. Mastering happens once the mixing is complete.
