Sounds good. Part of me would recommend keeping the bass panned dead center, but the rest of me always enjoy hearing rules being broken.

Yeah, I did have the bass dead center at one point but decided to move it. For some reason I think it works well panned a bit in this song. Thanks for the feedback. Any other comments?

I like it. The vocals need eqing during verses, can't make them out at all, also I think the levels of the bass in the chorus @ 0:42 is slightly too loud and the guitar is a bit lost.

Maybe the boom smack drums are a bit lost under the VERY heavy bass too.

This is a really cool song and vibe.

It could do with being mixed better though, nothing ridiculous - keep the vibe just tidy it up. The bass is very over powering at times.

The vocal @3:18 are better sounding.

Not keen on the dry as hell ending, try a tape stop type ending - it would suit it better.

Thanks for the feedback Davie. What kind of eqing do you feel the vocals need during the verses?

It's an un natural sounding vocal during the verses, but that might be what you want. It's very high mid range at the moment but not altogether pleasing, you know. Maybe it's just a little bit too much hi mids, it can start to sound thing and harsh if over done.

This shows the ranges for voice, male and female.

Yeah, you're right about the high mid eq, I was going for a bit of a unnatural sound. Can I ask what you listened to the mix on? The bass was something I was a bit worried about so I think I may try to tame it in parts
