    Mix this: An original called "Second Best"

    So here's my thoughts so far and a big thanks to everyone who has pitched in. I thought you did a really good job with the vocals. Car mix sounds good On my headphones (semi-open), the "Fifths" track comes across as too loud. Can you do anything more with the clarity of the "Subby Bass B"...

    Mix this: An original called "Second Best"

    You could use the “fifths” track. I think they’re quantized dead on, but if not, I’m happy to add a high hat click track just for the purposes of timing, as long as it’s not in the mix.

    Mix this: An original called "Second Best"

    I like how it's going so far, and I think you might be headed in the right direction.... The balance is good... I can hear all the tracks even on dodgy headphones. Just 2 things about the drums: I don't know if it was intentional, but the timing on the recurring toms fill seems off (see the...

    Reducing controller keyboard key noise in vocal take

    As a piano/keyboard player trying to record vocals, I recently discovered that I get a much better vocal take if I record the proper keyboard first, then play piano along into a dummy track while singing. The key to the vocal is to be playing while singing. That's all fine, but I was getting a...
