Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

Now, after a number of partially great attempts, happily a mix shows up where the kick cuts through, and does not sound like Pop or Rock, and the whole thing sounds fully professional and pure. :tu: Caveat, basses here and there and even kicks have a tendency to get boomy. The Jazz mixes need not be...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

I love the Jazz Big Band, let's see what mixes come up. For some different referencing, I think the following is quite a good recording, as a high school: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI_-QSfy748 manteca; anvil... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0xRQb_K1hE watch out little yuka https://www.youtu...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

that's what you read. I expressed my hope that rules are respected and they say one should level-match. they ought to do their level-matching while comparing mixes, as it is in their own interest and delivers important insight, but styles and ways of working can be very different, and the song provi...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

there is rich explanation to the rules, besides the rules, and I think it has been covered. to me, als occasional participant with some technical understanding, it seems sufficient. mixing is a complex task, and a responsible profession, so I think it is required that one is able to study a lot of "...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Elijah, my 2 cents - it's worthy, the "analog" approach is performing very well, the song sounds lovely. however, I think there is still some lack of digital swiss-knife tech to get rid of the vocal "bed-room" sound (which was defeated quite successfuly in other examples), and there is a foggy cloud...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC059 October 2019 - Winners announced

big congrats! I thought already before the announcement, all 3 did great. although I also liked the mixes by ManuC, Arthur Labus, Matik, GuizGui, and some others. @Mork, as you won, everything is proven, :) but from my taste, it seems you made some sort of an upright bass sound, and the song sounds ...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

:tu: thanks a lot again for doing all this, and looking into the suggestions and issues. it would be unfair to criticise a free service that works very well and delivers what is being announced. (and let's hope that one day they update the engine with some meta-script features to query the database ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Hello Alexandre, I see it as a very important factor, how well the drummer did his job and it was creative and gave a lot of organic energy to the whole production, and also his recording is versatile and can be used to add these drums in quite different flavors and sounds. I like the drum sound in ...

Re: Mix Challenge - General Gossip Thread

I'm wondering why so many participants seem not able to study and respect the rules. They just mix and post along. It's a mirror of current society. Too long, didn't read. Tap, swipe, more swipe. Zap-zap. Hollow out approach, cut to the chase, no patience. Nothing more Fox can do, really. If we tal...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC060 November 2019 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Welcome! My first concern is always, aside of all technical issues, does the mix make me love the song and the artist? Because, tech stuff can always be fixed one way or the other, perhaps with another request roundtrip, and a little imperfection will be always accepted, or may even become the thing...
