    Hi! I need your help in deciding whether this vocal needs some melodyne or not. I've just heard it too many times to make the call, i'm unsure about it.

    Thank you

    Kind of depends on the vibe you're going for. For a power-pop kind of production, it's probably good. For a super-polished modern pop song, you may want to tighten up a little.

    IMO, yes I would make a few minor adjustments. But I am kind of anal about performances. I hear a couple of timing issues as well that are easily adjusted with Melodyne. It is really up to you and the artist that determines what is needed.

    More importantly I hear a few mix issues that I would address first. That accent guitar that comes in after the second 'maybe one day' {2:05} at the last chorus really could use some compression to control the attack. It jumps out as out of place to me.

    Overall good mix man! Props!

    Sorry if you are not a man. Is your name Fredrik? Or Noel? Why is he stroking? lol

    I'd disagree on "first", actually. Yeah, the mix is pretty rough, but you want to get your tracking/editing right before you try to fix the mix.
