Mixing & Song Critique

I've just finished this song and video that was produced in my home studio

I've just finished and uploaded the video of the penultimate song and video from my upcoming album. This track has been in the works for the past three to four months. In that time I've survived getting the dreaded Covid amongst other things.

The track is in two parts and I used alternate acoustic guitar tunings as an experiment. My good friend Mark Beling (also a guitarist) caught Covid at the same time as I did and I decided that when we get through the recovery I'd invite him to contribute to the song.

Feedbacks welcome

Hi folks,

hope you are well.

I finished this track, it's electronic (synthwave?!?!) stuff, self tracked/mixed/mastered. It's mostly analog synthesizers through the following chain:

Synth --> API The Channel Strip --> ELI Fatso --> BURL ADC --> DAW --> UAD plug-ins (LX 224 for reverbs and L2 for the final master)

Seeking for feedbacks either on tech stuff (mix/master) and song structure.

Thank you in advance,

best always.

Here is the track:

Recording a fusion based guitar track. Trying to get some thwack.

This has been a real fun one to do. The piano and brass parts are all plugins and I'm not a keys player so I had to transcribe my lead guitar parts note for note. I *think* I just about pulled it off..

I also applied some compression and adaptive limiting (noth courtesy of Logic Pro) on the master. (Hopefully I didn't overdo this).

How well do the drums sit? (Guitar-driven instrumental track).

Hey all,

I'm mixing a guitar-based track and struggling to get the drums to sit well.. I'm very much a newcomer to this stuff so any thoughts or feedback on how I could improve things would be greatly appreciated! (Find mp3 attached).

Cheers,
Ben.

This one's near and dear: polishing an old song for release - Mix thoughts?

Hi guys. You've heard this song years ago. We got a pretty clean mix then but I never released the song as it had video game samples in it that I didn't have clearance for. Well I've changed that - stripped them all out and made my own sounds so it's time to get this ready for release after all these years.

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...
