    Low end balance and rythm help

    Guess it would help if I posted the track.

    Low end balance and rythm help

    Been while, but circling back to this one. Should be the last one for this project. Finally added some percussion. How is it with the balance of the mix? Better with or without percussion?

    Arrangement and mix help

    This is not a conventional song, nor is it meant to be. The intro is too long and the structure is probably terrible, especially since the ending has nothing to do with anything. That's okay though because it's just supposed to make you feel how it makes you feel. I know the bass part doesn't...

    Low end balance and rythm help

    This is essentially a children's song or even a jingle. I don't even know what the words mean to be honest, but I'm pretty sure it's wholesome. I tracked it with an ex of mine awhile back, but I still enjoy it and find it charming in a quirky way. I think of it like "All Together Now" by the...

    Need some feedback on everything in this one

    I took everything here into consideration and I think it was all great advice. Thank you for your ears. I EQ'd the kick and snare a touch so they were less murky and muddled (and took the verb down on them a dB). I took a bit of harshness out of the intro guitar and I took the background vocals...

    Need some feedback on everything in this one

    Not sure where to begin. I had this vision in my head for this and I never quite got there. Does the vocal sit well? Does it need more air/high end? Are the cymbal crashes too loud? There's a lot of distortion/saturation - is it not too harsh, but not too muddy? Are the guitars and bass...

    Is the vocal too loud? Drums too harsh?

    Took a little boom out of the tom and a little mud out of the guitar solo. I also added some "meat" to the drums (used a little parallel compression on a drum bus and... also increased the stereo spread a bit in the cymbals and hi hat). Do the vocals still sit okay in this mix? It's amazing...

    Is the vocal too loud? Drums too harsh?

    I struggled with the mix on this a LOT. I'm still not a fan the hi hat sound. The bass is fat and sounds great on its own, but is almost too much for this song. I could not get a good vocal performance and get the tone I wanted so I essentially did a hi pass on the vocal from 250 up and then...

    Mud and panning check

    Here's another song where I believe I've gotten the mix probably 90% there, but I just need a sanity check to make sure the weight of the panned instruments is not too heavy to one side or the other and there's not too much mud. I opted to do some hard panning on this to make room for...

    Need some feedback on the balance of this mix

    Thank you all for taking the time to listen. I really appreciate it. I often struggle with arrangements now that we essentially have unlimited possibilities and time so even if they're artificial, I do like to place some restrictions on myself. So I think for me the time has passed to make any...

    Need some feedback on the balance of this mix

    Really need some help here and as many ears on this as possible. This is just an acoustic guitar and vocals so I can't really hide behind any mixing tricks. It was a case of using the demo for the final song because I could never recapture the original performance of this demo. It was sung into...

    We're getting the band back together

    My ears are fatigued and I greatly need your objectivity. After 5 years my old band decided to get back together (virtually) for a loosely quarantine-inspired song. We had to record our parts separately and at home so I had to do some clever editing to get the quality up. Here's the latest mix...

    I'd appreciate any arrangement suggestions on this acoustic-based song

    Been a while since I posted. This is sparse and simple. A little EQ, a little compression, a doubled acoustic guitar panned left and right 75%, a piano, a vocal (with one little effect). I may shorten the song and put the piano solo right after the chorus instead of the repeated guitar theme and...

    Can you recommend a mix engineer?

    Can anyone recommend a mix engineer they've had experience with that generally works on modern pop, rock, folk and orchestral music? Perhaps a mastering engineer can chime in?

    Did I over mix this?

    I've been working on this one for awhile and I can't tell if I did too much. I kept juicing it and juicing it and now I can't tell if it's just a jumbled muddy mess or the lyrics are even intelligible. I definitely need some more ears on it. Thanks in advance for any critiques...
