    New tune: Dust Under The Wheel

    Sign in to disable this ad
    My ears (which are still in training) are at the point of complete fatigue dealing with this mix. I would appreciate any/all constructive feedback to help me figure out if I'm one the right track (pun intended) on this tune or not. Besides the production elements, please let me know what you think of the song itself (i.e. arrangement, performances, etc.). I trust you guys will bust my balls on this one...

    Thanks.

    Listening now. I think the performances is very good all over. I also like the song. The timing on the performance is also tight in my ears.
    But the mix doesn't sparkle. It's somewhat definated and pretty much well layered imo, but I think it maybe lacks some panning/panorama and some small arrangement stuff to widen it/make the arrangement more interesting panoramawise. And also some more high EQ. Don't know where though.
    Actually I don't even know if it is that it needs. It just doesn't sparkle enough.
    If you see what I mean.
    Think it is the fact that it lacks some high frequencies here and there.
    Now I'm repeating myself

    The vocal could be a bit brighter in the mix and more up front.

    The snare sound is a bit too "plaffy" if that makes sense. I think some sharpening would go a long way on some of the other tracks as well. I guess without knowing what has been done I would suggest cutting some of the low fequencies especially in the cymbals. The bass is kinda bloaty in the mix and the guitars seem to be fighting in the 300 hz range.

    First impressions from a half ass pair of speakers.

    The kick and snare are dull and lifeless.
    The toms ok though.

    The vox could use more volume and presence IMO.

    The guitars sound real nice.

    The mix sounds gelled up, but the kick and snare bring the song down is all.

    Oh the fade out is a little abrupt too.

    Thanks for the fedback! The kick track (on all 17 tunes from this last-minute session) is one of the most non-musical turds I have ever had to deal with. I have had to deal with it on all these tunes, as we were happy to just get anything recorded that day due to Murphy's Law in relation to our gear. I will take another listen to the snare and vocal tracks.

    Danke!

    Why do you say that? I got your feedback and will be printing it out to read at my DAW while I mess with the tune more later.

    Just feeling sorry for myself.
