Nice track, good mix challenge!
Can recommend this to anyone looking for a worthwhile mix-off.

Here's my first stab at it:

Girl ... APS Mix V1

Hey Brian (and guys),

Thanks for an awesome Mix Off to participate in! I know this is a solid 5 years after it was originally posted, but figured I would sharpen my skills.

The tracks (for the most part) were well recorded. I won't state the obvious but I wish there was a stereo kit track instead of mono (I ended up doing something to fill out the stereo image). The bass had those noise problems but I just rolled off the top (7-8khz ish?) which I was planning on doing anyway and it was mostly gone. I was expecting to not like the 103 as much but it sounded really good on your vocals! Guitars sounded excellent.

I found the Spotify mix from your album to reference (I assume the version that played on the show). I noticed that the final drums ended up being different. I didn't really do much to fix the timing of the cymbals (even though I wanted to). I just felt this song is something that's supposed to vibe even with the flaws (i.e. not try to hard to be polished) so I tried to keep that going.

The only edits I made were some sample replacements for the kick and snare, and I edited out the drums to silence for a beat right before the start of verse 1 (sorry, the producer in me wanted to do that).

Other than that, a lot of saturation to keep the analog vibe from the trident going and some very light reverb for space. Dug the dry sound of the original and your rough.

A total of 2 Hours on the mix. Mixed completely ITB and FL Studio 20.7 is my current DAW of choice. UAD, Waves, Soundtoys were among the plugs I used. I monitored through my trusty Yamaha HS80s via Apollo Twin and Sonarworks Ref 4.

Hope you enjoy!

My Mix

Hello Brian

Here's my take on the track.
I'm using Pro Tools 12 and mostly Waves Plugins. A pair of Yamaha HS80.

My approach was to have a good sounding vocals and then build the track around, some doublers here and there for stereo imaging, not very much compression and a quick mastering to Streaming standars.

I hope you like it, let me know what you (and everyone) think.

(I just realized this is a thread from 2015 )

Hey, now that this thread is active again, I'd like to toot my own horn for a second and encourage you all to hear what I did with this mix. I posted this a few years back when it was a dead thread, and never heard a thing back about it:

MIX OFF - Laid Back Rock

I spent some time on this mix, doing "sound design" work to create new textures out of the existing material, using muting to build the arrangement over the course of the song... and made the lead guitar into a pretty convincing wah sound too.

Toot toot!
