🔃 Revision Day ✔️
🏁 Hi guys!
Here we can repost the mix of the previous week and see if it sounds better compared to the older one
(made before others feedback)

🎶 The song was: Street Noise – “Revelations”🎶
- Post the link of both: the old mix and the new one, in the comment section below! ⬇️ -
Hey everyone, listened to other mixes and got some good feedback so wanted to try to develop my version and thus my mixing a little more.

Original: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ukf08wkp2dgamhl/street%20noise%20-%20revelation.wav?dl=0

Feedback included mixing in mono, raising the drums, and removing some mud.
To incorporate this I reset my panning, muted all my reverbs, and got a better sounding balance in mono. Less lows from the guitars and the overheads. I also went with LCR panning instead. When I added reverbs back in I took some more lows out of them.

To my amateur ears I'm okay with the mix, or at least okay enough to put it away. Still not really content with the vocal sound but I don't know what to do on this mix anymore. Well, time to go start on this week's mix. Cheers!

Hey Brian, good job! This last version is improved a lot compared to the old one! For me the guitars and the organs panned hard left and hard right are a bit loud though, I'd give more volume to the snare to enhance the groove of the song and tamed a bit the top end of the drum kit ;P
