If you have no interest in the OP's music, why in the world would you choose to make any comments regarding it? As to your summation, I personally find it inaccurate not to mention completely out of place, and condescending. It is obvious that the OP is attempting to develop the vision the band have for their sound and have put forth a song they feel reflects their talent acutely.
It bugs the **** outta me when people make such wild statements pertaining to the creative vision of someone else. Get a life or maybe just speak less and let these people and the mixers they are sharing with see where the song leads them all.
I commend the band for having the strength of character and courage to reach out to others, knowing their song is in developed state and an easy target for small minded know-it-all's offering up meaningless opinions and half baked critiques seemingly just to run their neck.
Be nice to people and try to be considerate of others struggles to make something beyond the ordinary, striving for their version of extraordinary.

I did a fourth version, I hope I don't annoy anyone with my endless tweaking

I think the original mix is pretty good. For anybody who's gonna give it a shot will have a hard time topping it.

One thing I'm wondering is what's the time table for the project? I'm asking because the original mix posted on soundcloud is over two years old.

I think I'm done. https://www.dropbox.com/s/s1o1vq4p8s...Music.mp3?dl=0

And I liked this song FWIW.

EDIT: A little more aggressive master if you're into that kind of thing: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qsxn95iggt...Music.mp3?dl=0

And finally, larger than life: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0av2ftxqk3...Music.mp3?dl=0

Gotta cover the bases.

Hey guys. Wow. We are absolutely blown away by the amount of response! There is some serious talent around here.
As it's currently holiday season madness, we are all spread out and away from our studios, but we'll be back in early January to do some serious A/Bing with fresh ears and we will get back to each of you personally.

Have a great new year and we'll talk soon,

Merry Yule and New Year from Ryan, Michael, Josh, Jonty and Evie.

Hey Spede,

We want to get the tracks to someone January this year, and then the timeframe is as soon as the mixer (and the masterer) can get it finished. This project has been in progress a long time, mainly due to self production..hence why we are reaching out here

I took another cut at this song. There are a number of interesting details that I wanted to bring out. It would be so much more helpful to have the artist's perspective on the sound and feeling they are looking for.

Bit late to the party on this one, but I had some time off this week so I did a mix:

Heres what I had time for, the vocals aren´t done!. This is the idea I had for them, but didn´t have to finnish them up.
Its not mastered either.
Good luck on the project

Enjoy

Phew!

Happy new year everyone!

So we got over 20 mixes from different people from all over the world and it's been a challenge to listen and sort through them all!

We've sent out PMs to everyone that sent in a mix and have shortlisted some, which we are still checking out on different systems.

If anyone didn't get a PM from me regarding their mix please send me a message! Don't want to miss anyone

Thanks so much to everyone that sent through their work, it has been quite a sonic adventure hearing the different palates, styles and sounds. We really do appreciate it!

Talk soon,

Ryan and Michael

Hi guys from a fellow NZ'er

What town are you from? What studio was this recorded at?
I'll work on this mix over the next few days...

Thanks,

A.

Hey All,

Just letting everyone know that we are no longer taking mixes as we are now in the final stages of talking with a mixer. We'll post an update on this as it comes around.
Thanks so much everyone for the time and effort, we were really blown away by the response. I'm pretty sure we got back to everyone, again, if we didn't please send me a PM for feedback on your mix.

Ryan and Michael
