Pop alternative. Let me know what you think Monitor Controllers

Pop alternative. Let me know what you think

Hey guys,

I just finished tracking this song for an artist I play guitar for. It was produced by myself, the singer, and the drummer (my studio partner). I mixed the individual track volumes, but haven't done any automation or real mixing yet.

Threw up t-racks on the master bus, which I think squished it a bit too much (especially the snare).

Anyhow, I'd love to hear what you think!

Happy holidays

Mix sounds very good for one that's been "thrown together"! The only thing I'm not keen on is the obvious pitch stepping on the word "dreaming", but surely that's just a matter of a little tweak - nice job!

Thank you for the input. I'll definitely take another look at the vocals. I did process individual tracks, so I can't say it's thrown together. I did compress, eq, etc. Just no automation.

I'd love to hear what everyone else thinks. I am a writer first and formost, but have been engineering long enough that I'm now completely obsessed with audio. I appreciate all of your ears and input. One of my favorite things about this site is that like minded people can all share knoweledge and ideas. I have learned a lot (good and bad) from everyone here and really do look forward to your feedback.

Hey, this sounds great. What console did you mix it on?

Thanks. This one was 100% ITB. I used pro tools with an 002.

Haha, I somehow knew you were going to say that. I don't know how you guys do it, that mix's got really great depth for ITB.

I'm just starting out here at Gearslutz so I'm not very knowledgeable on too much on the recording/production of music. (Hence why I'm here, heh). But from the standpoint of an average everyday listener to music who's ears may not be as keen and trained as others, I really enjoyed listening to your mix and thought this was a very catchy tune.

DAMN! Nice Work! This is HOT!, get the drums and bass more clear and fix dreaming if you like. I would like to hear it when you get the rhythm tracks down.
