My mix - https://www.dropbox.com/s/o92grrpa8jiciyj/MC077_Keystone_Angel_Afterglow_coiled_ear.wav?dl=0 my main purpose was to make this more on ethereal side. So I started with voice and add Chaotic Hall from ValhallaVintageVerb. Then no compression, just a bit of EQ and I've done with that. Then I d...

I absolutely love this song, so groovy but calm! To get the most out of it however I applied a huge amount of different tricks. And the first one is time correcting. Just phasing tracks via internal track delay (+ and -) in Ableton to get groove more punchy and stable. Especially good with interacti...

Hello all. My mix is here - https://www.dropbox.com/s/i5m4kwg2xt3wceh/MC075_Endicott_Dread_Megalomaniac_Coiled_Ear.wav?dl=0 Well, my initial thought was that this track should sound as clear as possible. There are several reasons on it 1. It's well arranged (nice track indeed!) 2. Megalomaniac assoc...

Plugins I used: soothe (to remove harshness especially of drum track), Fabfilter PRO-mb to change balance in complex instruments, Fabfilter Pro-q3, FirComp2 for glue compression and normal one, Transient shaper from Softube to improve excessive reverbs on synths, Ableton's Utility bass mono feature ...

Thanks for your feedback guys! Here is my submission for round 2 - https://www.dropbox.com/s/cs4ehbmknifbdss/MC073_TREEEYE_Selga_coiled_ear_R2.wav?dl=0 You were definitely right, my mix should have a bit less of compression, and due to using FirComp I just played with mix parameter and I think it he...

Guys, i'd just like to put this here. You should definitively check your monitor response. Because one thing i noticed right away on your raw mix was that he bass was HUGELY saturated. I'm 100% sure you guys have a HUGE dip on your bass response. I talked about deficient monitoring by song provider...

Very cool song to mix! WAV - https://www.dropbox.com/s/l9fqgsz2errbtcd/MC073__TREEEYE__Selga__coiled_ear.wav?dl=0 I use pretty strong compression on Drums. And cut a lot of mids. Used sooth on cymbals to tame resonances and added a room verb. Bass is also highly processed. FirComp, a lot of mid cut....

Thanks for that awesome opportunity to mix a beautiful song! I like the initial vibe however I just like did something more clean, spatial and big, also with "waterfall" effect ;-) So for the drums additional track I choose simple overheads and than add some valhallroom on the drumbus. I don't very ...
