Mix song critique

Profile picture for user Ben Davis

Been a while since I posted a tune. Been at it hard taking knowlege and input from past postings. I finished a record of originals. Should be on spotify and such soon

been working on some new songs

heres a depressing countryish breakup tune for you wolves to tear apart!

any input welcome

My big struggle is learning to use reverbs better.

i think you all cured my over compression habit

love using the multiband plugin on Studio One. Just presets

Ps. Im loving Studio One Pro! Getting better every day

It sounds really good to me. If I'm going to nitpick, I'd say that the vocal is perhaps slightly on top of the mix. But that could be my rock bias. Also, the bass (frequencies, not instrument) is a little heavy. I felt like it could use a little eq in mastering.

 

I did a quick master on the mp3 file.

What a nice song. Looks like you're finding your way with the Studio One. It's excellent. There's so much I hear in your production/mix....so many little touches here and there.....Makes me want to mix your record.........Seriously
