Hi all, What a nice song. Thank you CeZar for providing it! The arrangement of this song is quite dense, especially in the chorus. On one hand I tried to keep this wall of sound feeling. Otherwise I wanted to make it clear and give room for the voice. I could achieve this best with the ThrillseekerX...

Hello Gary, Thank you so much for choosing me for the second round! This means a lot to me this round, because of the genre soundtrack. And more as I usual do, I treaded the mix like I would do it if this track is my music. You mentioned not much to change, except the intensity and low end of the wa...

Hi Gary, Wow, is this realy the first reply? :hmmm: I wonder, because this is a realy great track! Thank you so much for bringing it to the mixing contest! I like this Vangelis like CS80 sound a lot. This sound influences also my music, which sometimes goes in a similar direction than this track too...

Hello, Thank you very much for providing this track! Good to see some big band sound here. This was realy fun to mix. My aim was to give the brass sound some warmth and body and to remove some of the harsh frequencies. So they may sound closer than in other mixes I heard so far. MP3: https://www.dro...

Hi Alexandre, Thank you so much for choosing my mix for the second round! I knew that my processing of the male voice was a risky thing and would probably not fit your taste. But it was easy to reduce or remove. It was not a harmonizer. I doubled the track and changed timing, pitch and formants to p...

Hi all, Realy nice song. Great to hear some different language! I fighted a little bit with the male backing voice. Not only because of the audible pre-processing. It was as a single voice to less for me for good backings. So I tried to make this track sounding as there are more than one backing voi...

Hi all, Here is my mix of this song. I did some gentle time correction on the drums traks. Not much, just a few very obvious hits out of time. My goal was not to change the particular mood of this recording. And I've done some automation to reduce the squeaking on the guitar tracks. MP3: https://www...

Hi all, Thank you for provoding this song. Made fun to mix it. I used the amped bass track. All guitars are DI-tracks and re-amped with the phantastic free ToneLib-GFX. For the vocal I used the Acon Digital Deverberate to reduce the ambient on the recording. MP3: https://www.dropbox.com/s/67173yb7h3...

Hi all, First of all - nice song! Well performed. Thank you very much for providing it. And thanx for the hint to Steely Dan. So I had the feeling that this kind of style needs a more gentle drum sound. Not too heavy, not too deep. Therefore I used ReaPitch to tune the kick and snare a bit up. Not m...
