Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC42 April 2018 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Hello Moa22,

thank you very much for the detailed feedback. Those are clear desribed issues and statements with wich I can work.
I did not not use any exciter. The harshness must come from the individual tracks.
Glad you like my brass sound!

Hi dego, I am very glad to reached second round. Thank you so much. And especially that you like my effort to make the chello and violine more realistic by automating their volume. According to your comment, I changed the balance of the strings to the choir. It should be better audible now. I did no...

Hi, This is a great song about a very serious issue! I tried to mix it close to the original. I used a lot of volume automation. Especially for the backing vocals. I like them very much but one can hear, the they are quit low in the original mix. So I started with a low volume on the backings too, b...

Hi Declan, Nice track! Thank you for providing it to the MC. I tried to keep close to your original mix. The biggest change I did was to try to give the instruments more the feeling of live played instruments. So I did a lot of volume automation to bring more expression to the sounds. Especially the...

Hi 3ee, Thank you very much for choosing my mix for round 2. I followed all your comments. - I reduces the brightness and stereo with of the transition sounds and their reverbs - I added a low level octave to the chorus synth and made a wider stereo.

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC40 February 2018 - Submissions until 21-02-2018 GMT+1/CET

Hi all, The task was to make the track less repetitive. I tried to follow this without muting parts too much or to change the style of the track too much. So here is what I did: Drums: I made two versions for the kick and snare. One more punchy and loud and one more softer and thinner in sound. This...
