So I attached two different recordings.

Both recordings are the same guy, with no mixing added, and are using the same mic/preamp combination.

There is one major difference though. Although the one I have labeled as "bad" it is still clear, but does not mix well .. AT ALL. In fact the vocal is just too loud no matter what I do in the mix.. compression, eq, etc. If I turn the vocal down its clarity diminishes and doesn't sit in the beat well.

The one I label as "good" is very easy to mix and to control. I would like to get back to this recording.

I recorded both in my apartment using Cubase sx3 using a SE reflexion filter.

If anyone can help, please do!
