Re: jmir1111's June mix
Welcome again Jmir,
Love that snare sound, nice and pingy in the intro. Kudos for using the sent tracks.
Balance and panning of things seems pretty spot on and the impact of the instruments after the musical pauses hits really well! The effect on the vocal is pretty extreme in the verses, yet they sound great in the choruses. Did you alter the setting much there, as it seems to work much better. Brandon did say 'be creative' I guess. Personally, the delay on the verse and bridge vocals is a little too much and does not 'add' to the song but rather distract.
Is the snare treated differently in the build up compared to the chorus? I'm not too sure it is, but it sounds nice and crunchy, lo fi almost in the build up and then a little clearer in the chorus. I think you have nailed the mix in the choruses, although perhaps the hats a re a bit bright. I did not find them fatiguing, but lowering them somewhat would still have them cut through but not be as harsh.
The Bass sounds nice and gritty, with good rumble in the bottom end. I love it! Kick works well throughout, and well with the bass.
Overall, really good spread and sonics overall, just a little heavy handed on some effects.... Great work!
Rules do not belong in music. Like food, there are flavours that work well together, but in the end, it's each person's taste that determines the quality of the meal.
