Alt-Rock Project from New Zealand needs Mixing !

Hey Guys!

I'm a part of a self-produced project called Voice that has 11-12 tracks that need to be mixed and mastered by someone with experience, preferably in the alt-rock genre. We are New Zealand based.

I've been scouring the net for online mixing services but it's proving quite daunting...so I thought I'd appeal to you guys and see what comes back.

The project is pretty challenging..diverse and dense, we have 2 vocals, 3 electric guitars, acoustic guitar, violin, cello, keys, piano, synth, bass and drums.. sometimes all in one track..hence why it's tricky to mix...haha. Genrewise it moves a bit too, sometimes a bit electronic, sometimes straightforward alt rock.

We think the drum sound is the weak point.

Songs below give the breadth of the project (and our attempts at mixing/mastering)

And the full tracks to one of the songs "Fly Now" are below if anyone would like to give it a go.

here's a reference mix/master

Here are the Project Details:
44Khz
Tempo: 174bpm
Some tuning on Vox and BVs.

Cheers!
Ryan

The track " Fly Now" has a fantastic arrangement and your ref mix is better than many I have heard. Job really well done. Would love to have heard more interplay and melodic weaving with celli but it's a thoroughly enjoyable listen -nicely done and congrats to you all!
kind regards,

Hey guys, thanks so much for the mixes, they are all sounding awesome and really different styles which is so fresh for us.

We're still going through them and chatting so keep em coming if anyone else wants to, and we'll be getting back to people that have posted stuff really soon!

Cheers from New Zealand

I like the space in this mix, i tend to always end up with a closer mix, what is your reverb method, or is it delay. everything feels a few feet away from the listener, how do you that?

Just a snippet and a rough master to give you an idea how it could sound, didn't have much time this week

I definitely have no interest in the music. To me it reminds me of emo, chick music. But then again, the mix is fine. It's clear, has good impact for the song. But it does sound a little choked off. It must be the type of compression, because I've heard 1176s full out and they sound great. This mix has sort of a restricted sound that could probably easily be ditched, and the hi-frequencies are super strong. Not a bad problem to have, but maybe mellow the dang thing out just a tad, or just on certain things.
