    Been working on this one for awhile. Just looking for opinions on the mix. Thanks!

    Somehow... I thought your link took me to something else? It was playing something else. And then the screen flashed and ya have 2 tracks posted but you're saying you work on " this one ". Which one? One as in both? This link just changed on me again?

    Would you mind telling us the title of the song you want us to listen to? The one I see, the one I'm listening to is called Dynamite Day. But then it also takes me to Sound Cloud. Where it appears you have numerous other samples. None of which sound anything like what I'm hearing in Dynamite Day. So what gives?

    I know I had brain surgery but...?

    Try panning the distortion element (after making two tracks) hard L & R and shift one track forward 20 to 40ms so this instrument is out of the middle.

    Are you referring to the guitar?

    I like this. Lift the Female Vox . It sounds like you are prejudice. She's down throughout the entire mix.
    Very cool track. Not my my thing, but appreciate the originality.

    Definately reminds me of Beck, as far as mixing style, his parts seem to cut more drastically, like the got 2 turntables and a megaphone.

    Also there is some lack of momentum to the arrangement, and it's drawn out. I love the 90s too, maybe add some additional Harmonys on the choruses. This arrangement is confusing. If this was a live set at the club, it'd be ok maybe, it's not that, it's a song. There's just way too many parts.

    I'm not trying to be mean but a pretty low percentage of songs have aCapella intros. I'd tighten the arrangement up. Keep the best three parts, use some effects to add drama and sell a little at a time.

    Not sure about the acapella either. Vocal in right channel (00:32) seems a bit too low for me. Band sounds good though.

    I don't mind a capella vox if they are done well, and yours are fine both pitch and performance-wise ( although the producer in me says "double track them!!" LOL )...but I'm not really crazy about the hard L/R panning you have going on with them.

    But, that's a production thing, not an engineering comment.

    it's not as horrible as the stuff you've posted previously. the mix is ok imho. i don't really like the song much but that's because i'm old and have good taste. at least you're making some progress. keep trying. (omg, what am i saying?)

    Lol thanks Kurt. Yeah this is my band for once. The crap I usually post isn't my own music.
