    "The Wild Animals", mix ok?

    this is my last mix on this one, as i wrap up final mixes on 8 new tunes for a new album.
    looking for how this translates on your playback,
    particularly, if the kick and bass guitar are coming across good.

    tnx.

    Hi - I listened to this on some pretty crappy headphones at work, and mostly all the parts still sounded very clear -- so nice job! A few things that stuck out to me:

    1. At 0:17, it sounds like there is momentary volume increase in the bass. Couldn't tell if it's that the bass freq's are summing with the guitar here or something else.

    2. At 2:15 during the climax here, the midrange loses some definition. The vocals and the guitar and the high end of the bass seem blend together.

    3. Around 3:40, the low-end gets a little muddy, but only for a second.

    Hope this helps!
    Pete

    if this was a cake, the toothpick would come out clean.

    The slightly discordant piece at 216 is very cool.

    mix is ok.

    @GONZO-X , man, that is pretty darn far from my usual listening fodder, but I really liked it!

    Besides a good mix, what made me happy was the lyrics, and the fact that even in this dense mix I could actually understand every word. That was some good work there.

    hey pete! thanks for the detailed review...
    at each of these places,
    i went in and re-listened, and agree with your assessment,
    i edited each spot to correct.
    the bass had some freq buildups that i couldn't get rid of with simple eq,
    so i just edited the volumes at each instance.

    that midrange issue at 2:15, was simply freq masking...i moved a few things away from each other,
    and that solved that problem.

    at 3:40, again, masking, and that was an easy fix.
    appreciate the comments!

    thanks manslick, yea, that spot at 2:16 i do in a few other spots too...
    i was wondering if it was worth bringing that moment up in the mix, and letting everything else take a back seat for a fractionn of an instant!
