Critique my first attempt in professional mixing & mastering

Hi y'all, I'm fairly new in audio engineering and mixed and mastered my first full song.
I must say it was recorded very precisely, good mics, mic placement adjusted perfectly so I did not had to replace tracks or phase shift, so it was quite fun. I would love to hear your thoughts and get some critique, so I can do better next time. Plan is to offer my services soon after I have had some more expirience...

Direct monitoring using cuemix and Cubase 10

Hi all,

As I'm new to this forum, I'd like to give a little background about me. I'm a hobbyist who doesn't record/mix/master for commercial use at all.
Just a hobby that went completely out of hand and used solely to track rehearsals and make a "decent" recording once a year.

Band:
  • 2 electric guitars running signal through pedal boards
  • Semi acoustic guitar, during rehearsals tracked via jack, during recording sessions tracked using mics

Mix/master advice

Hello,

it's been a long time since I have posted in this forum. Hope everybody is well.

I'm still working on my album but I'm getting close with the release sometime in june and I need some fresh set of critical ears.
Here is the latest version of the title track and though I'm quite happy with it, I lack the proper monitoring facilities to make the final judgement.
So please listen to my song and tell me if there is something awkward or off-sounding or if it is okay the way it is.

Thanks!
Michael

Is this rock mix harsh on the ears?

Hi everyone,
We have been mixing this song over and over for the past few months as we cannot seem to get it right. At louder levels it seems to be very harsh. We don’t have any boosting on the master and generally subtle eq moves in the high end. Maybe my ears are overly sensitive but I can’t help but think it sounds harsh in the high mids. I’d say that the instruments contributing are they vocals and cymbals. I’m worried the tracks were recorded with too high gain. Let me know if you agree or disagree and any advice you have so we can get this finished and move on.

Behringer X1222USB Mix-Minus Inputs/Outputs

Hi

Hope this is the right place.

So for five years I have had a successful mix minus set up like this:

Phone call comes into mixer on L/R channels on mixer (Channels 7/8), I have the cable going back to the phone line from the SEND output so the caller can hear me, with the correct control knob turned down so they don't hear themselves - is that the best way to do it?
