Default Re: need some advice on a mix

The soft sweeping harmony's, and the melody took me away to a place where I viewed gargoyles eating the rotting flesh of mortal beings and at the same time the juxtaposition of the counterpoint vocals and especially the lyrics invited me to slit my own throat.

good job! the snare and kick sound good. howeevr, the cymbals are too quiet (hi hat's sound ok, but also could come up just a bit). Try bringing up the overheads to see how that sounds, cause the mix as a whole sounds good, but a little bit too subdued and clean (i think some serious crashes would help out).

Default Mix opinions

Good Mix, here's my opinion. I wouldn't turn up the cymbals, but I would brighten the vocal, its a lot darker than the rest of the mix, especially the cymbals, and since I have crappy little 3" speakers I'm listening to, I noticed that the bass is inaudible there. (Try boosting anywhere from 200Hz to 900Hz in the bass) The pro mixes never have that problem, even on small speakers.so I would suggest monitoring with crappy speakers as well as your big system. also put reference tracks in your session to bounce off of your mix. Get something in the same genre that you know kicks ass on any system you put it in and that can give you a direction. Watch out though and make sure to even out the levels. It can be deceiving referencing your mix to a Mastered mix.
