bumping it 15 minutes later, really? Try posting it the WIP forum and you might be better received.

i want to disagree with the notion that automation is just some optional afterthought that doesn't fundamentally alter whether a mix is good or not.

The vox has no body to it. The keys seem to have alot of lo mids. The vox has a nasal sound to it that just may be inherent to the singer. Don't hi pass the vox so much and lower the precence in his voice.

Just some suggestions.

Thanks for the response, your right I shouldn't have bumped it so fast, but its the time I've posted a mix on the gs forum and was a little anxious...
first
Obviously automation isn't an afterthought. I wanted to see what people think of this current balance of the mix, placement and processing. Im not the most experienced mixer and all I'm trying to do is get a feel if I'm on the right track at all...
BadJones - thanks! Yea, the singer has an annoying nasal voice and I'm struggling to get him to sit right in the mix. Will def try your suggestions. I also split the piano in mono (to make more room - it fits better... at least I think) and cut some of the mids.

Ok, I spent hours working on fixing it up...
Any advice?
Fell free to be honest. If it sucks, then tell me why, I want to learn from my mistakes
