Question for "alt rock" vibe mixers

Question for "alt rock" vibe mixers

just got my first gig where i can make the mix more than that .. like an extra instrument

took a mono loop and radio'd it..to a lead vox that i cut all tunes thru a LDC and a 58 and telephoned the 58 and slid some LDC in for edge on on this one

put some analog emulation repeats with wow and flutter and tape feedback top end loop decay

dealing with live vln and cello


working on the "fit" just going for feel right now..i'm onna limb but i like the big star live crappy feel, flaming lips eq sound placement..etc

does it take2 to see it thru?..like what i am doing but using very bandwith limited ..deep spaciality stuff.. i feel like i need a keel as well as a rudder..it is so taste driven i feel as if i need an objective view as there is no comparative source material to reference..what do ya do?

other than being gifted/experienced whatever in the genre what's yer take on bringing it home

Yes. Maybe. Sure, why not.



Just make sure you crystalize the sugar.

Take it easy. Post a sample if you can and then explain what you want and where you feel you are lacking. Either way, Good Luck!

Quite clear. No doubt. Somehow.

Mike, you have enough experience and chops to see it through. No problem.

I'd find out where the piece MIGHT be sequenced with all of the other tunes and then see how far I could bend/(break?) the branch.

P.S. Is Art Stoppe still in the bizz?

play it for someone you trust, ask what they think. watch their body as they listen, it'll tell you everything you need to know.

me, i make the bass drive everything. when the bass is in control, everyone surrenders.

Go for it Mike. Anytime I turn on the radio these days all I hear are gimmicky mixes. I realize that the telephone vocal type stuff sounds a little cliche to us, but the average listener just thinks it sounds cool.

As long as it sounds like Nirvana in the end.

it's just that there is no right...it's not like hard rock, r&b jazz etc

i made it very crappy middy on purpose and it sounds good at every level but loud..it is a ballad though..just don't know how far is too far..and most clients don't have a clue
