Tune In Tomorrow

Recommended Posts

track8, a little impersonal a title; this was a lot of hard work I'm thinking.

I'm loving the guitar, and them horns is tres sexy!
Is that a wah, as in your foots on it? Or something programmed?
Your chops are killin' me dude, you're "schoolin' the hell outa me"!

I'm a guitar player so the horns are a bit loud when doubled up with the guitar.

That kick is so working for me on this one...

Getting close to final mix & masters, need to know if this mix is in the ballpark..Is the gtr, solo at 1:30 too loud?

thanks & be safe...

This is very nice! It's hard to judge the mix because I enjoy the music and playing so much. I get a  lot of Mezzoforte vibe here :)

A couple of things you could try to improve this further:

- everything  sounds   nice open wide stereo but drums are very narrow, maybe a wider reverb on the snare wouldn't hurt

- the kick is very snappy in this context and quite hard rock, you could try soften the hit/attack (with a Cakewalk percussion strip if you have it) or try another sample, or just cut between 2-4kHz

- are you sure you want to have the sax and guitar unison such a uniform sound? Why not separate them a bit: other brighter than the other and/or pan them a bit apart

Anyway, I could listen to this all day and forget about lockdowns and place myself somewhere warm and a drink in my hand and and...

Well done!!

Good suggestions.  The melodies are in unison but are panned a bit off each other.  I will check it out again, maybe give them a bit more space.. This was an internet collab, drums are sub-mixed so can't do much, just a hint of room verb . I'll check the beater though.

Thanks for the help!

What have I been smokin'? Could have sworn this was track8?

Going with my initial response. Kick is "working" for me; YMMV.....
Especially in the context of the guitar tone, which is not a "warm and fuzzy big box" Gibson;
well mostly, I'm at 3:30ish now. Still not an L5....

NO!

I would print it, but, serve Your vision, remember, I'm an old (heavy emphasis on that old) rocker.....

Thanks Tom,

Yeah, track 8 turned into track 7!

This project is pretty much wrapped up, just checking others ears. Sometimes I overlook the obvious.

Several months out of the year I make a conscious effort to develop an idea or write a tune each day. These are 10 out of around 60 from 2019 & have plenty from previous years as well.

After working on these for a while now I'm ready to get onto the next batch.

Cheers & be safe...

I didn't think the guitar solo at 1:30 was too loud - it sounded just right in the mix.

Cool smooth jazz instrumental - very relaxing.

The mix sounds radio ready to me - nice job.

@Hidden Symmetry I was listing to Mix 1 but change to Mix 2 when I got to it.  which did cause a momentary stutter on the furry paw tapping ;) 

Overtones of Steely Dan, cool grooving, mix two sounds nice here on the Adam's, like Imu2002 I just enjoyed it sweet playing, nice tones, good airy balance, why would you ask for more :)

It was really hard to concentrate on the mix as the song gets you into the groove and you forget you are trying to critical listen.  🙂
Well done...   like it.

Radio ready, pal.  Love that funk-jazzy guitar work and that interesting growling sound that comes in panned left around 1:27.  Great composition, performance, and mix!!!
