This new project I've been workin on needs some extra ears. I hoped write/record/produce/ and mix this song. We were going for a sound similar to circa survive. By far one of the most difficult sound I've tried to produce. I need opinions on the feel/sound/attitude of the song. Let me know what yall think about this. Please let me know.
Myspace.com/coreyschroeder. Its the only song on there..
Hey man.. Thanks for the reply. I understand that mixing is in art and I respect that. I would be more than willing to let you mix my stuff. We are band trying to release our first EP on a low budget. We have 6 songs for it and virtually no money to spend on having professionals do it, hence why I'm doing this myself. As much as I'd love your help, we have no money to throw down towards mixing.
I really like the track! I love circa survive, My friend and I are working on some circa inspired stuff (among other influences of course). I'll be sure and put em up when we're a little further along.
The first thing I'm noticing is some kind of distortion during the quieter parts of the song (opening guitar, piano breakdown). Not sure if that's myspace's doing or what.
The drums definitely need some spaciousness to them, if you listen to "The Difference Between Medicine and Poison is the Dose" you can get a nice reference to Circa's drums without any other instruments.
I think the lower background vocals towards the end need a little mud cut out of them, maybe a little presence and verb added
I also, agree that some bass would round out the bottom end and tighten up the whole song.
Having said all that I am only listening to it through cheap ear buds. I'll have to take another glance when I'm in a better listening environment. Sounds like you're off to a great start!
