MIX OFF - "All You Are"

Hello, peeps. It's been a long time since I've logged on here - not since late 2018, I think. Life comes at you quick, and the past two years have been challenging to say the least. Some people are able to write prodigiously under stress. Not me. I kind of curl up into a fetal position (creatively speaking) until I force myself to get back to songwriting.

All You Are is one of about 8 tracks I'm working on. As usual, my mixing skills are pretty low rent. I'm getting better, but still learning, learning, learning. I thought I'd put this track out here on GS to see if anyone wanted to give it a shot. I was going for a Snow Patrol kind of vibe. Not sure if I got there. The more I write and record, the more I hear my own style, which I guess is a good thing. I've chased a lot of different vibes over the years.

Here are the stem files. Thanks for listening!!

-Dave

All You Are

It’s too hard
To forgive yourself
Like a wrecking ball
Trying to become a flower
I wanted you
To release yourself
See the light in your eyes and the smile in your heart
That has never faded

And all you are is all I wanted
The still, the silence, the burning flame
The road to nowhere
My destination always the same
Because of all you are


Keep the light on, love
Don’t go dark on me now
When you drop your guard
Anything can happen
Can’t we laugh at ourselves
Be the sharers of secrets
Untwist the knots getting tighter
I know we can can free us

All you are is all I wanted
The still, the silence, the burning flame
The road to nowhere
My destination always the same
Because of all you are

I can't find the lead vocals in the multitrack folder. Not there on onedrive either?

Edit: So they were apparently in the guitar folder.

This one was tricky, but fun. Learned a lot from this and I like the song a lot too.

I think my biggest challenge was making it sound good in mono. Adding body to the electric guitars that is needed when they're panned out ends up muddying the mono mix.

Love the song has a real 90s vibe like the gin blossoms...
The mix sounds good but I think the kick is little too forward and the snare could use a little love that's just my uneducated opinion but I seriously love the song!!!

All You Are - Perfekt Chaos Version

Hi there

First of all thank you for sharing your song.
I really love the guitar tone we got here.

I didn't follow a particular reference but I do get that Snow Patrol would be one of them yeah.

So... here goes my humble shot on this.

Hope you enjoy it.
Take care.

Thank you

There are somethings that might be improved but... was fun to work on it in a rainy day.
