Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Winners announced

Hi, congratulations to Ben and vintage! Quite a surprising outcome - I am really happy that my last minute „brute force“ mixing session turned out to be of some use.Usually attempts like that end with really nasty, out-of-proportion mixes. Awaiting Bens decision... Cheers Mork Well, you do seem to ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Mix Round 2 until Mix Round 2 until 31-10-2018 11:59pm GMT+1/CET

The idea was to keep the vocal vividly in front of the mix without using a compressor. The vocal rider has a feature where you can feed the a sidechain signal wich will act like a reference for the rider ... from there the rider will automatically keep the vocal steadily above the mix by riding the...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Mix Round 2 in evaluation

Oh, how I dread round two... always insanely hard to decide :whiteflag: The mixes are all good and I cannot judge based on technical criteria, so I tried to go just by feeling, which is hard enough: I'd listen to one mix for a longer time and get accustomed to that and then changing to the next feel...

4. Waves Vocal Rider - to keep a steady level of the vocal
Could you tell me a bit more in detail how you used that? I have the hornet autogain which I think is a similar plugin, but I never really sure how and when to use it...

hey Fese, thanks for providing the tracks. i did a mix but i did not find any feedback (i did not actually expect a personal feedback but i did kind of get excited thinking i was gonna get one, it would help me out). maybe i'd just love some feedback on why my mix didn't get any feedback to so next...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

I would really like to hear from the participants of round two what they did to the vocals (mine and Susan's), especially EQ-wise, because that is something I really struggled with in my mix (and still do), and you lot did a great job there.

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

So why even bother if one of the two can't be heard? Of course, re-recording the vocal would obviously be the best thing to do, but I don't think we have that option (or do we? :hihi: ). If you can find really good musicians to re-record this song in a proper studio, go ahead! I have no illusions r...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC048 October 2018 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

And finally - tadah - the contestants for round two: Jerze - well balanced in every dimension - warm and round and cozy - I tried a little cut on the mix at 7K and I found the cymbals in the chorus got a little bit rounder and less annoying - both the solo guitar and accordion on the center feels su...
