    Please give your opinions on what can come up or down on this mix. The higher numbered track is the most recent mix.
    thx

    Here's one of my reference mixes for my song mixes, but only for individual instrument balances in the mix - not to cop the same guitar sound, bass sound, etc..

    One thing to check on...There's an irritating high freq in the cymbals that's colliding with the vocal at times.

    On my system I hear it near the beginning - gives a slight "essy" impression on certain syllables of the vocals - coming right down the middle. It may be the open hat...but it's not consistent either.

    it's ok. not my cuppa'. don't care much for vst's but i get it why people use them. would sound so much better with real drums tho.

    the snare is a bit loud. can't hear the bass or kick on small laptop speakers. perhaps too much boost in the deep lows below 100 and not enough low mids like around 220?

    Yup. It needs a bit of "The Foster Bump". ;)
