Not much room for an ME to work and it is always easier to add shimmer than take it off. Something to consider.
Great work Roman!
Thanks for the thumbs up, but it's not my mix, it's been done by a friend of mine, I just wanted to get feedback from people, like yourself, of what they thought the mix was lacking or had too much of. BTW it hasn't been mastered, peaks are high yes, yet RMS is -16 and dynamic range is a healthy 13. High peaks is part of the problem that I personally see with this mix. I sense he wants a ME to do 2 buss compression, instead of compressing more individual tracks. I agree with the "shimmer" comment. IMHO vocal should shine and not be fighting with other parts of the arrangement for its place in the shimmerness. Thanks!
