Guitars @ 0:52 and 1:52 ever so slightly. Are they being sped up and slowed down during the mix or is that like a palm mute effect that was thrown in? Also at 2:02 there is 100% something going on sounds like a hiccup from the singer the way it was done maybe there's something in the stem that wasn't cut out? I must of been thinking of another mix when I said overheads sorry about that.
I wouldn't worry too much about the guitars I may be crazy and think I just need more sleep but fix up the spot at 2:02 because that defiantly sticks out to me. Like I say other than that you have a solid mix. I really think you did an amazing job on it.
TOMIMMON - I FEEL THE GUITARS ARE A LITTLE OFF BALANCE. CHECK THAT OUT, BUT BESIDES THAT GREAT JOB WITH THE USE OF THE VOCAL STEMS. LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING HOW YOU FINISH THE MIX
thanks a lot for giving me the chance to optimize my mix for round 2 :-).
Can you please clarify a bit what you mean with "off balance"? Stereo balance L/R or level balance between the different git tracks (e.g. which should be more emphasized)?
Actually I would've been interested in getting some feedback why mix didn't make it into round 2. But then I just read some of the feedbacks for the round 2 choice ... for example:
MICHAEL K - GREAT CAPTURE OF THE ORIGIONAL MIX BUT BE MORE CREATIVE
MORK - ANOTHER GREST CAPTURE OF THE ORIGIONAL MIX BUT THIS IS A COMPETITION PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST
I mean ... what?
Anyway I had fun mixing this. Great song. Although the drums sounded a bit artificial to me (programmed?).
Yes, like the introduction stated the drums had to be programmed and at the time this was a school project so there are things in the original mix I probably wouldn't do today if I was to remix it. Considering the 15 selected have another chance to make it the best mix they can make I've suggested that they be more creative for round 2. Is there something wrong with that? I didn't say the mixes were bad at all, in fact I said they were both a great capture of the original mix. At the end of the day though the guys that have added features which the original doesn't have are going to have the advantage on the creativity side of things than the ones who did not. I did also say to be creative with the guitars, drums and vocals during the introduction to the challenge. if you want feedback on your mix then simply just send me a private message and like everyone else that has asked I will listen again and give feedback.
For fairness between all R2 participants, please provide extensive and non-ambiguous feedback.
While the task may seem daunting, you are competent enough to provide the needed information to get our mixes to the standard you expect from us.
I know the main point is always taste - presupposed a certain (technical) quality of the mix, of course. And that's fine!
But I think there're some misunderstandings here. A 'capture of the original mix' would rather be a mastering of the original mix than a stand-alone mix from scratch with the rough multitrack (which includes DI-tracks as well). With a 'capture of the original mix' it wouldn't be possible to be creative at all.
Anyway ... thanks for the opportunity again and good luck to all R2 participants.
