    Trio, first mixing attempt

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Rather ambitious project, this is: a 6/4 R'n'B track with lots of orchestral (and dark) bits going on. 65 tracks, a pure hell to mix I might say...

    The dry drums & the reverbed other tracks clash of course, but perhaps that's just part of the crazy idea. Still not sure...

    Lemme know what you think, the mix in particular.

    Up in 10 minutes:

    Interesting, If you were going for an EVIL sound
    nice job, The mix captured it.
    If not , You'e got an evil sound anyway! I cant make out the words but theres a satanic/adams family feel to the whole thing. Not my style but I am curious as to what others think. I sure hope there was nothing subliminal in there

    65 TRACKS?!?!?

    Holy cow...what are you mxing on? The NASA console?

    The lyrics moved me...Well, not so much "moved" as...oh, they're not English...nevermind.

    Seriously, mix sounds pretty good EQ and level wise...but I didn't like the drums at all...sounds like a midi thing to me. It's not so much the dryness as the, well...the midi sound, lol.

    (3rd listen) Yup, that's my only gripe. Cool harp sounds. Is that real? With 65 tracks, I'm assuming a lot of it has to be midi, right? I don't know anything about midi, but I don't think that harmonica is a "font" or "patch" or whatever they're called. It sounds cool. Like the tone on the lead, too...sounds fatter than a strat; is it a Gibson of some sort?

    Wow, I have a lot of questions, lol.

    buh bye for now. But answer me really quick b/c I'm impatient, lol.

    It's no Back Street Boyz or Nsync...


    ...and that's good enough for me.




    Most excellent.

    Sam, check this out....


    Man the only thing I don't like about this is the drums. It would be a lot better with just a little bit more real sounding drums.

    I even like the foreign language better. I almost don't even want to know what you're saying. The music does well enough.

    The vocals are superb. The stereo field is efficiantly occupied and I hear nothing "wrong" with the levels.

    I'm probably not being realy critical of the mix because I'm still getting into the music...it's pretty rich. I like it.

    I'm gonna hold onto this one. I'll let you know if anything starts to piss me off about it. Thanks.

    Heh, Christiaan is the only one who knows how UTTERLY DUMB the lyrics really are...believe you me, you don't wanna know. LOL

    Strange as it may sound: it's only 5 miditracks: mellotron strings, mellotron flutes, organ, rhodes & drums. In fact, all of my songs are like that: midi < 5, audio > 50 What can I say, I like huuuuge choruses! (there's a Queen & Prince influence, yes)

    The guitar is a Hamer, the harmonica is real. Solos are played by my two lyricists (besides very literate, pretty talented on their instruments too)

    Drums were already on the list to get replaced by real ones, especially after your responses, but now are 99% definitely on the replacement list.

    Anyway, thanks for your kind words guys. I appreciate it!

    Spiffy - an interesting tune for sure. The drums arent bad - they are pretty soft and kinda mellow. The whole song would chnage if you threw in some huge 80's butt rock drums.

    The song reminded me of Teen wolf meets Buffy the vampire slayer.

    The vocals are too fuzzy to make out....the....words......oh - nevermind.

    sorry...language barrier. It's slang for harmonica.

    Shite, I knew that...

    Forgot it for a moment.

    Yeah, harmonica must be the hardest intstrument to sample. Never heard a convincing one...
