I've been mixing my tracks and getting diverse results - some sound great, others are taking a lot more effort. I'm working with pop/urban (eg. Black Eyed Peas, Britney, Outkast, Justin Timberlake), so I'm looking for a full frequency response and maximum RMS. I just put up three representative tracks at http://www.audiovisceral.com. Tracks 1 and 2 sound good enough to my ears. However, track 3 is significantly weaker, despite the fact that I've mixed and re-mixed it a hundred times. I just can't get it better than this, and like several others, I'm not sure where to go with it. Mixing advice would be very much appreciated. I've got about 14 tracks to get through, so I think some good insight might really be beneficial. I believe that with all the software I have, a bit of guidance should be able to help me get these demos all sounding pretty pro. Software details: Sequencer is Sonar PE4; Sounds from Reason and Sampletank. Plugins - full range of Waves plugins, TC Native Essentials, Cakewalk Sonitus fx, etc.. Mixing details: Most tracks have some level of compression and EQ. I've mastered with a multiband compresser and an L3 limiting set to about 4 or 5 dB (a bit agressive, perhaps). I've also applied Waves Maxx Bass and BBE exciter depending on the situation. Thanks.
