EARTHSHAKE
 
Very good sound quality and mix. The mixture of different sounding guitar tones is great. I think the drums could come down a db or a bit more.

Re: EARTHSHAKE
 
Thank you so much for the comments.

I took your advice and lowered the drums. I think that this mix is much better.

Here it is, again..... Our newest hit smash single.... "Earthshake"

...Stev Reich...

The problem with my mix (as I hear it) is this: It's too boxy and kind of stifled sounding. I would really like to create some more space within the mix so that the solo part, which runs up the middle pretty much the whole time, has a little bit more room. Plus, i would like to have each part be a little more defined.

Takes me back.

Great project. What I'm hearing, if you'll forgive me for saying, is too much compression, and not enough high-end. The result is an antiseptic mix, which is the problem I think you were describing. Without the "presence" up top, it sounds like a sequence, which is deadly when you're doing Reich. It should sound like guitars, which are not quite so perfect (in dynamics or pitch) as this mix would have the listener believe.

Guitar is the instrument of flawed people. Perfect people listen to oboe. If I listen to this Reich piece I want to hear guitars.

My 2 cents. From the other room my wife thought it was a sequence as well.

Hi Everyone!

I am hoping for some constructive criticism (on any aspect - the mix, the song, performance, etc.) on a new song I am mixing. I usually have trouble with bass levels, btw. This is actually the first song I have been able to mix all in one session thanks to a new dual-core processor! What a joy!

Anyway, the song is called "Let It Go" and here is a link to download it:

Thanks in advance!!

Here it is!! Our latest smash power pop hit single..... EARTHSHAKE!!! -- TAKE TWO!!

Based on everyone's feedback I made some changes to the mix. I hope this one is better!

I'd love to hear what you think.

Here is the mix with a sudo master job using the MCDSP project studio plug-ins (master limiter and a little analog tape sim) in a separate mastering session:

And, here is the RAW mix right out of Pro Tools with only dither on the Master:

OK, so no one has really jumped on this one yet, so I decided to do some more work on it on my own. I have a new version that is actually in a player on the more formal part of my web page.

Give it a listen:

All the instruments soundsd great. I would bing the vocals up a notch or two. The snare kinda distracts a little from it all and the guitar on the left is a little too loud. I like the leslie keys in teh background. If you have the snare that loud I would get a little more kick in there then. seem to be a poppy snare but no kick.

Put a EQ on your vocals and boost 8K to see if it gives you a little more air.

Throw autotune on the top, set the two left knobs (forget them right now) to 51 and 51. Then the key to the key you are in or to C - Chromatic. Not that you are way out, but it will tweek it naturally.

Sounds good, but need a little low end too. Turn the snare down a db or two.
