Hey soundgymers,

My humble mix of the song "Fool" from Ghostly beard". Overall all the tracks were very clean and well recorded (Although I just don't like the fact that drums and bass aren't real) and in principle it has been easy, but as I listened to it more often I was finding small challenges. I took the liberty of moving the guitar 2 and putting a wah-wah on it, I thought it was fun

Ah very cool, indeed you took a similar route as mine on a lot of choices :)
It's funny I actually hesitated between the 1/4 delay vs 1/8 haha, now I like yours more, maybe I'll try doing one of each next time :p

Your chorus vocals are way smoother than mine congratz for that, what did you do on them?

I feel like the the guitar solo part is really crowded.

Ah the wahwah is pretty cool as well.

I like your drums way better than mine good job on those! Punchy & controlled and crisp. How do you get such a crisp high end?

I feel like the reverb is a bit too big on the main vocal. This comes down to preferences obviously.

Very good mix I like it a lot, IMHO it lacks a bit of clarity in some places but I'm a huge fan of many things.

Merci beaucoup Raymond pour vos commentaires. Les choeurs sont un peu ouverts de chaque côté, passés un peu dans le Melodyne et compressés avec un CLA76, je les envoie finalement dans un groupe où j'insère le plugin CLA Vocals avec delay et une reverb. Pour les batteries, j'utilise souvent le canal SSL et le compresseur SSL.
Tu as raison pour le manque de clarté à certains endroits, je pense que ça pourrait être corrigé en automatisant le mixage dans certaines parties, mais ça me rend déjà très paresseux
Au revoir

Hey Enric, really good mix! I agree with Raymond on the reverb on the lead vocal, and on the guitar solo

Hi Enric .. Love the Smooth feel of your mix. Good choice of reverbs also .. just a little too wet.

Thanks Jeremy I take note for the revision day

Hey @Enric Granollers , Ce bon! The Rhodes is filling a lot of space in the low mids, taming that a bit will open your mix up. Drop your verbs by 10%. Nice and smooth mix otherwise.
