Hey fellow mixers! Quite an enjoyable song this time around, I got some 'Guardians of the Galaxy' vibes straight away. And a remarkable fact that it was written for a friend going through a breakup, man I wish I had a friend who would write me a song! Awesome. Let's get to business. Yes, the tuning ...

Hi guys! In my opinion it is a well-arranged song played with feeling. I will present my mixing highlights as usual: Drums: very well-recorded tracks, it was easy to get them to sound the way I wanted. The highlight here would be my personal 'parallel distortion' trick used to beef up the snare and ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC061 December 2019 - Winners announced

Prolog: If not beeing a native speaker in English excuses every thing, please note that I am not an native speaker. What concerns to my point of view, seems there is a misunderstanding. Sure at the end of the day, which is the best mix is a matter of taste. This is clear to all involved here. But, ...

Hi, here's my entry for R2: https://www.dropbox.com/s/y0itv34ljbvakwk/MC061_Jazz_MUK_Two_Seconds_To_Midnight_paperthin_R2.wav?dl=0 I've tried to follow the instructions that Franz provided and I listened more closely to the original mix.

Hi, here's my take on this month's challenge: https://www.dropbox.com/s/7hgo68nfnqhxl0a/MC061_Jazz_MUK_Two_Seconds_To_Midnight_paperthin.wav?dl=0 The track is challenging indeed. It's a new genre for me, so I had to do some reading before starting the mix. First of all, I've arranged the players in ...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC058 September 2019 - Winners announced

Would be a shame to let such a huge and detailed post go to waste. Lemme add my 2 cents. So, what I would like to know, how did everyone think about the classic vs. experimental approach, regarding sorting out the electonics and guitar notes and soli? I hope I understood your question correctly. I g...

-Drums: I added samples below the SNR and the Kick to get more punch.

I usually write up a pretty extensive recap of my mix process, but I'm not convinced anybody reads all that.
For what it's worth, I do :educate:
