Re: The participants selected for the next round!

6) Shoma R1: For now, the only comment I can say is that I believe you could work more on the stereo image. Sounds like the most instruments are in the center, so it doesn’t leave a breath to the lead vocal. The strings have too much mid frequencies and if you do not take care it will conflict with...

Hi Chris, thank you again for providing your song and your very detailed feedback. Sadly I didn't make it into the Top Ten, but then again I learned a lot from the points you've mentioned regarding my mix.
