hi guys i'm trying to accomplish two more things in my mix. i'm trying to get the hammond organ to become more discernable and have its own little spot, right now it sounds like its super fat and in your face like every other instrument (and every other mix I seem to do.. haha) when i open mix in waveform view, its nearly at ZERO all the way through.. yet when i open others (like the cc.mp3 it actually has dynamics.. yet mine doesn't sound any louder than theirs... ahh the major plight of the home engineer with untrained ears! ) if you take a listen to the organ in this clip http://www.closeriget.com/cc.mp3 and then the organ in my clip, http://www.closeriget.com/hidden-clips.mp3 you can get an idea. i'm also trying to get the guitars to become more lifelike, more like they were actually mic'ed.. i'm not sure what they are lacking because they have the tone and sound i want, its just they are too, how can i say.... "IN YOUR FACE" it seems that everything i mix, is always too IN YOUR FACE. i'm trying to remedy my ways. the clip i posted is similar to mine.. two hard panned guitars, bass, drums, etc.. but they also have a 3rd center guitar and they still get seperation. as for my mix i'm using amplitube for the guitar and i lined in a telecaster through an avalon m5. i posted a post similar to this one in the home recording forum and they provided a bunch of help until we got to this point so they recommended i post here. im sorry if this is the wrong place. if it is, say the world and i'll delete the post. thank you. (i also played all the instruments and wrote the music to this track so if we could just bypass critiquing of the song itself and stick to the recording/mixing, that'd be fantastic.) hg.
