Hi there,

It's been a while sinds I posted here, so it's about time...

Not really my genre, but while working on it I liked it more and more!

I tried to get as much energy as possible to make a 'blowing your speakers' mix, so my distressor was pushed to the limmit... Put distortion on almost everything and went a little over the top with delays...

I realise that if this was for a client it would probably be to much, but it was fun pushing it!

Let me know waht you think and have a great sunday!

Hello friend!
I liked the way you brought the singer's voice together, in general it sounds beautiful!
But you have a lot of bass, I would make it much quieter.
In places, the balance is disturbed because of this, the voice drowns and it is hard to hear
Of course, you have a lot of reverberation, it would be enough for two such songs))) I've been working with reverb on drums
Your artistic view of this song is cool)!, but in refrain on double vocal, the effect sounds weird)
The most important thing is that the transition from the verse to refrain does not stand out for you, you want more emotions on the refrain of the song
Once again, I will inform you that my opinion is just a subjective opinion and I may be wrong.
Thank you again, my friend, for your feedback. Good luck to you !

I like it for being different than everybody else's mix. It sounds like a live recording from the way you have the verbs set. The vocals don't really match the vibe 100% if this was indeed live but it's cool. It reminds me of sound check before all the people come in the club. Unique perspective. Good job

Hey klasgenoot, nice mix! I agree with Leigh on that it sounds a bit like a live recording where the verb is quite noticable.
The effect on the vocal is creative but maybe not my taste :)
I do like that the guitar solo is really screaming!

Hey Cleo, I agree with the comments above, the reverb on the drums especially, tend to clog up the mix, while the one you used on the vocals push them on the background.. I liked your approach but maybe I would try to get more definition on the main elements of the song.. nice!!! ;P

Thanks everyone, i got back to it and cut a lot of the 'room ambience' and vocal reverbe. addedsome extra delay on the vocal instead and got rid of the 'delsane' effects on the vocal dubbeling. Also pulled out some of the 100 hrz boost on the bas. Thanks for your advice and maybe i find time to mix for next week!

Hi Cleo, I have too less reverb on vocals and drums, you maybe a little bit too much. Please give me some and we will be fine :). Nice mix anyway. Thanks for your comment on mine :).

Hey @Cleo Simons , I'm with @Leigh #90 on this one. It definitely sounds like a big empty live room. The mix isn't bad, it's just very reverberant. If that's what you were going for then, booyah.

I'm hearing pumping on the highhats at times, maybe pull back on the Distressor mix? It's strangling the OH's too much.
