Re: Breath to Aspire - VasDim`s Mix
Hey man, welcome to the forum and the chaos,
Typing as I listen, your mix feels overly bright and harsh. The guitars seem to contain a lot of high end fizz which is creating almost a hiss that lacks definition. Interesting chimey effect too, kind of works in parts, perhaps a little too prominent and frequent though. The cymbals are also quite bright and when all the guitars and crashes are in full swing, the mix becomes quite tiring. It could be a case of just bringing the crashes down and altering the guitars to bring in a little more body.
Vocals sound pretty good in all respects and the snare really suits. The kick drum gets quite lost and means that the snare often pokes out a little, but again, this is probably due to the masking effects of the guitars and cymbals.
I sound like I've torn it apart but that is not my intention. The balance and spread of everything is pretty much spot on, it really could be just a case of treating those guitars a little differently that would make this mix jump in scale tremendously. Really good job overall!
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.
