    Try playing the mix in your car stereo, that's usually a good way to get an idea of what's going on. For the record, what are you using to monitor?

    Hey,
    I'm a little late, but I think you should recut the track totally live. Just because. See how it works, then maybe comp in some spots.

    Also, mix it with the beat and then bring it back to us, it's difficult for me personally to make a judgment without the whole song.

    It sounds good, I think the vocals are up a bit high, actually a lot. Also the high frequency artifacts could be caused by pushing a preamp/interface too hard.

    yeah the vocals are a bit too loud its because I want them to cut through and stand out in the mix I might turn them down though.

    Hello I just completed a new song, I have learned alot since my last post.
    I want to know if the vocal quality/overall mix of this song sounds professional and correct :D

    a de-esser will solve the sibilance problem. don't go crazy though or you'll sound like you just drank a fifth of vodka

    Try using de-esser as an insert real time. You may change your pop-up filter with other brands which are more thicker. Try also adding an analog configured compressor like the bomb factory in real time as an insert. You may tilt the pop screen but not the condenser microphone.


    Hope this one helps!
