another new one: "Michael's House"

Recommended Posts

https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/michaels-house-1

here's a first mix of the vocal version of this song.

this is an uptempo, but groovy rock thing,
lots of fun guitar stuff,
some pretty wide open vocals.

i think the vox level needs to come down, to match the guitars,
which i think are more in line with the drums and bass.

bass line might be a bit too upfront, 
but the louder you play it, the more it seems right.

guitar rhythms might be a bit too light.

being first mix, 
i'm kinda on the fence with it,
open to suggestions.

I think it sounds pretty good Bat.  I was on the fence about the vocals coming down.  At the beginning of the song, I felt like they needed to come down a touch.  As the song progresses to the end, they seem fine.  Maybe bring them down just a touch and let us have another listen.

Trust your instincts Bat.
Sounds righteous on my Bose cans.
SD3 on this one? Sounds like you got it working!
I'm still trying to unlock its depth...

hey michael!

thanks for the feedback...

i'll work on the vocal automation a bit, and get the levels balanced out.

seems the band gets a bit more intense as the song moves on, and not as much at the beginning

my instincts!! LOL

well, yes, i'll try.

and yes, SD3 on this one...

someone else on another board said they sounded fake and plasticy...

and of course, they are 24 bit samples of pro sets played by a pro player,

so, hm.

i was even considering changing the set...

My furry ears must be tired as I thought the vocal could do with coming up in places, I see though you are looking at re-balancing the vocal so I will say nothing about the vocal.  (Oh I already have oops).

I liked as well.

tired furry ears can be problematic...........! LOL

 

yes, in the first half, i think the vox are too loud.

in the 2nd half, maybe just right, maybe too low a few spots.

i might just delete the vol envelope i have now, and start over!

sometimes, that new perspective is better than painting into the corner.

 

thanks wookiee

Bat did you take the track down? I don't see it here.

oh yea, i moved on.

took it down tuesday morning.

i've already re-mixed it, 

and i'm waiting for head to clear on it.

i'm doing final mixes on the 5 other tunes i have finished now, then i'll post those, come back to this one.

 

see, when i post stuff, i'm working on them.

i don't dwell on it, i just get busy. doesn't make sense to leave obsolete mixes up.
