Hey leary - I'm enjoying your mix - I really love the impact you created in the way the chorus hits. There is a nice sense of space around the vocals and a really punchy, compact drum sound. Maybe the snare pokes through a little too much in the verses, but I like where it sits in the choruses. The bass is a little low in the mix for my taste. It gets a little lost on smaller speakers - perhaps some more low-mid presence in the bass might improve that?

Nothing special, I'm afraid... all fairly standard home studio stuff. Steinberg MR816CSX interface using built in pres. Main vocal mic is an MXL V69ME. Other mics used were mainly SM57s and Audio Technica AT2020s. I have a few nice instruments - 95 Fender Lonestar Strat, Duesenberg Starplayer TV, Martin acoustic. All the parts were recorded, played and sung by myself except the drums, which were played by a friend.

Thanks for sharing your mix!

Very nice! Sounds like you brought up the backgrounds a bit and tweaked the levels here and there... am I hearing a bit of bass eq, some top end on some of the elements, and some widening as well?

In any case, good stuff!

Hello Andrew,

Your analysis is very accurate!

The stems are wonderfully engineered - I applied very little processing.

I see that you are in Brisbane - I used to live in Auchenflower!

Anyway, a pleasure to work on one of your tracks.

Regards,

Simon

Hey Simon... Good to know I'm hearing things right. I really dig what you did BTW - My ME worked from my stereo mix, so it was interesting to compare a stem master...

...Wow - Cool! What a small world it is! I too lived in Auchenflower - from 1997 to 2001 - moved around while we were there, but we lived in Ridley St and Payne St. We've migrated across the Walter Taylor bridge now, and reside in Chelmer presently.

Hey Neurodrive - You've come up with a really individual-sounding version - a very energetic mix - it has lots of rock'n'roll attitude, which is cool...

The balances are all good, and for the most part I like the tones. The drums sound very different, particularly the snare - did you replace it with a sample? It's not to my personal taste, but it seems to suit the general vibe you were going for.

Overall though, it feels very saturated and compressed. I have nothing against either as processing choices, it's just here I think it may be "flattening" out the depth-perspective of the mix. Everything seems to sit in the one plane. I think if you maybe eased off the compression on some elements, it might provide more front-to-back depth in the soundstage.

Thanks for sharing your mix!

hola fHumble fHingaz

about the snare - is original, from source, just, tone shaped.
as and almost all drums too.
I share your thoughts(sat/comp) in part and all this takes place.
thank you for your thoughts and complete review on the mix.

also like you original mix - well balanced, pretty lively, good dimension, and drive.

maybe one more track from your album for mixing? hehe

Hi Andreas - Superb mix! Probably one of, if not the best mix I've heard of this track so far! (and I've heard a LOT of mixes!)

I love the pristine tones you got. The high end is beautifully glossy, yet "silky", ...and the bass just really holds its own yet integrates so solidly into the arrangement.

The choruses hit with real impact, and I love the way you built excitement by using some of the overdubbed guitar layers in the later choruses.

Excellent stuff - thanks for sharing your mix!

Hi Hingaz!

Thank you for this beautiful song, the raw tracks you recorded sound really, but really impressive. Here's my mix, thank you again for this opportunity.

Thanks for the song! I did some drum sample injection to change up the flavor a bit. Something different. It was a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to hearing more from you.

Hey Roberto! Glad you liked the track....

You've done a superb job of mixing here. Your mix really reflects closely the intention of the production. The way you have balanced and processed the parts really showcases your feel for the musical direction, and I love it!

About the only area where your vision departs slightly from mine is in the guitar solo. My idea was a more impressionistic, slightly psychedelic style of thing... think outro solo on "Under the Milky Way" by The Church.

Overall though, excellent stuff - thanks for sharing!

Hi David - sounds very cool!

It sounds like you did a hybrid mix/stem mix, rather than a mix from scratch with the raw tracks, is that correct?

I like the drum sounds you added in - they give the mix a slightly more relaxed feel - not so hard hitting as the original drums... I think it works quite well, though. It's nice to get a different perspective.

Thanks for taking the time to mix the track - glad you enjoyed it!

Hingaz thank you for the feedback! I am really glad you liked my mix. Very close referencing to the original mix when it comes to balance, really helped my mix I guess. Other than that I did very minimal processing. The song mixed itself almost. Those raw tracks are very prime example for studying rock production, I suggest anyone to examine this song, for this kind of genre.

That's right. I was just going to do a simple stem master because I like the song. I could have done that, but I also like to have fun with things when I can, so it got new kick and snare drums. Other than that I didn't add anything. Just processed the vocals with more compression, not really using the original as a reference for anything. I probably could have selected a better kick for the song, but I couldn't spend all day on it. This was done in about an hour to two hours.

Cool! I thought I recognized the stems & FX etc...

Soon there will be 2 more multitrack/stems from the album available on the Cambridge-MT Multitrack Download Library: "Life Gets In The Way" and "Outa Control".

For anyone who would like more, all of the multitack and main stems are available as bonus content with purchase of the album here: https://fytakyte.bandcamp.com/releases
