Agreed, best so far (aside from the original, ha), though I think the vocal needs riding a bit in the chorus to keep it intelligible.

There's a glitch on the turn before verse 2, too busy to rebounce.
Great, stereo image is a tad thin though? Maybe pan out those L / R guitars a little more.

I'll need to listen again, I'm pretty much an LCR guy though so?

Hey there
Thought I'd give this a shot, never done one of these mix-offs before but I really liked the song. Reminded me of Dizzy-era Goo Goo Dolls.
May give this another shot tomorrow when I have a bit more time - sort some more levels out.

Hope you like!

So after listening to the track, the song seemed like too much fun to pass up... so here's my mix! Tons of fun doing this!

I've included 2 files here. Neither are exactly what I'd send to a mastering studio, but I can't say that I mastered either one as well. The only difference between the two is the level of compression on the master. The first is closer to a normal mix level before mastering, but I slapped a tad of limiting on it just to catch the loudest transients. The second uses a harsher compression on the final mix, as well as more limiting. The 'mix' is EXACTLY the same on both files. The first is equal to the loudness I'd expect from something mastered around 1990 or 1995, the second closer to stuff from around 2000 or 2005.

I definitely prefer the first

Looking forward to hearing what you all think!

it's all analog - I can't be bothered to be mixing ITB or Hybrid (whatever that means). Mixing all on Harry is so fast for me. That mix took me roughly 4 hours - including preparing all files and output assignement (those damn stereo files heh ). The only plug in I used was the Oxoford dynamics for de-essing (if it would have been a real mix I'd put an analog de-esser on the lead) - ups not true I used ampfarm and amplitude for 2 guitars but that's it.
I really like what analog does to the low end it seems

What does it do to the low end in your opinion?

Understand, well I have not that much issue to get the lows full bodied ITB but there is sometimes a certain smooth presence OTB which I find is hard to get ITB.

Well it certainly shows! one more proof that running everything thru high quality analog (desk + outbard) is head and shoulder above the rest! (and the operator's know-how)
I would love you to tell us more about the chain used on key elements (Drums, Gtrs, bass, Vox) if you have time.

I dunno if this mix is proof of anything besides that I had half a day off

If you think it's really interesting to go through everything I did on this mix since here you are
I'm not doing any black art or have any special tricks. It's all common knowledge in this day and age but I give you a quick run down of what I remember ...
Overall: all eq-ing and filtering was done on the Harrison - Smart C2 on the Master and since I try new things with those mixoffs I put an Aphex Dominator after the C2 - I thought about selling the Dominator but I guess I keep it now. It made the mix brighter and denser
Drums: I compressed the snare with the Harrison compressor and put the drumset into a mult with a SSL-clone (a friend of mine built it and I like it somehow) -> parallel drum mult
Bass: I still figuring out how versatile a Distressor is so I slapped it on the bass and there aren't many signals where I don't like a Distressor ... (I have no clue about the settings - I just fiddle the knobs till I like it)
Guitars: the clean stuff was reamp with plug ins - I'd work on those some more but since it was a mixoff I just went with it - there's certainly some room for improvement right there
Acc git: Harrison compressor - slamming like a SSL comp
Synths: some were compressed (again Harrison)
Vocals: Distressor (again) and some Oxford de-essing

Efx: Lexicon 480 wood room on some stuff - PCM60 for snare - Roland DEP5 delay (I had to check that one out - the TC2290 would have been more to my liking but again I wanted to see where that thing goes. I kinda like it but not really in this track) That delay went into the PCM60 too

I guess that's it. Again I eq-ed everything with the Harrison (voc/acc git/drums ... you name it)

in short one drum mult and that's it

Thanks! I know there isn't any black magic voodoo, most comes from the operator not the gear, but it's interresting nonetheless to see what your workflow was. Actually not very complicated if that's all you used, goes to show that good gain staging and know-how is key (the desk certainly didn't hurt either!)

I know too well what you mean by "there's certainly some room for improvement ". Everytime I listen to some of my recent mixes, I always spot a few things I wished I tweaked a little more, or stuff that fell through the cracks (pops, fadeouts, volume rides etc...)

Anyway, thanks for the reply. I write, produce, record, mix, and always learn a thing or two watching someone else do the same

Thumbs up Thanks, olofd!

First of all, thanks for sharing the tracks, the song is really catchy
Secondly, I feel in love with acoustic guitars, they are very clean, but with sparkly shimmery and really nice top end.
Other tracks are not bad too, definitely workable quality and performance isn't that bad too, so compliments again!

Listening to others mixes, there are couple of good ones, but studjo's mix is my favorite for now. It's a bit messy in the bottom end, but overall pretty good. thumbsup

Hey bro what's up? Everything well with you and your family?

Thanks for your kind words means a lot to me, you critical bastard hahaha...

Not quite sure what you mean with your question, I used a couple of reverbs but not a real plate. What reverb sound exactly do you mean?

Later...

Everything is tip top with me and the family. Hope you guys are good to.

Don't you own a real plate? Or was it a wet dream I had long time ago heh

I notice that your mix had something organic happening between his voice and the rest of the mix. Remember I have never owned or tried a real plate in my whole life so I can only guess.

Your spice up of my acoustic song 'lucky' sounded so good. You really got the levels right and made the song feel warm and loving.

I have a couple of new songs on my sketch board that I'm going to PM you soon.

Take care brother -

I think it was a rather wet dream, I don't own a real plate :-)

For the vocals in this mix I used a combination of an old EMT 245 reverb, the stock Logic convolution reverb with a IR titled 1.9s_Large Stage Guitar and a the Soundtoys Echoboy plugin with a setting called CH-1 Chorus.

Nice idea to keep the guitars so clean in the intro - I was thinking about doing the same but I kinda missed the "amp-thing" - I'd go for a crunchier sound in the second verse though
btw as allready stated: no samples in my mix either
