@bigadd0 hey I'd love your feedback on my mix -- or from anyone else that would kindly care. I managed to put some decent work on it and did a 2nd version. In my attempt and far-reaching imagination this mix is a CLA-style mix

to me, the bass is growing into some kind of backpipe sound (the low passlve pipes), just wondering...

Here is my version of of the song.
Bigdadd0 stated he liked big roomy drums (so do I), so that's the route I went
A pretty good deal of automation went into this to try and underpin the crescendos and give bigger impact to the choruses.

Yeah same here. I listened the day after and it sounded like ****. Phase issues and stuff. I went to deep with software eq, cutting and boosting.
My computer speakers are good, but I use a sub to. Hence low mids where not really there. Gonna remix using my headphones insted. Hate mixing thru headphones though....
A great song, should be easy enough to do a good mix......
Cheers

Yep,

I've still been playing with this song. Somehow I can't make my mixes "listenable", here's the latest one.

This song is really testing my mixing knowledge.

roberto, due to the many tracks and offered details, I think the technical part can only be solved after one develops a very tight and opinionated concept about the song itself. then, with some mild compromise, it can be materialized, given one has quite some allround knowledge on the subject.
you are done, when listeners completely forget that there is such a thing as a mix, and hear a good band with a hot song.
the sound is a bit this or that, given smartphone earplugs or whatever, we love the band.

I don't ask myself "is my mix good", but "does the band sound good, does it rock?"
that's also the reason I do the video. I want to feel it as a whole.

Just loading all of the tracks into my daw and hitting play sounded great. So then I decided to mess it up lol. Tracking was really nice though, I liked having the room sounds for the kick, snare, and toms.

I would still call this a rough mix. Usually i'd take it out to the car and see what jumps out at me, but I haven't done that yet. Hopefully some you guys can give your opinion on it. Thanks for checking it out.

And thanks for posting these multitracks. Really nice to work with.
