Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC34 July 2017 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

I just had in my mind for some reason that Saturday was the last day I could submit, must have just miscalculated previously when I saw a post saying "7 days left", was nothing on your end. I did put a fair amount of work into the mix so very disappointed I'm unable to be counted, that's life I guess.

Hiya, don't panic! :cry: If you listen at 27 seconds in where the vocals start ... 'Here I come and I go again ...' Now listen to the music, backing and then you should hear where it gets crushed when the vocals start? Try a slow attack, medium release, ratio 1.5:1 to 4:1 and set the threshold to s...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC33 June 2017 - Mix Round 2 until 27-06-2017 11:59pm GMT+1/CEST

Thanks for your feedback Gary, regarding this: "Crazy amount of compression and pumping a lot." Could you clarify? Is the pumping from the kick drum? Because the compressor on the bass guitar has a kick drum sidechained to it, so that it ducks a bit when the kick is playing (i.e. makes room for both...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC32 May 2017 - Mix Round 1 in evaluation

Hey el-bo, thanks for the feedback! Regarding the boomy bass, I totally agree - my mix was definitely too loud on the low end. I think what happened is that because of the rules regarding what you can put on the mix bus and not allowing mastering, I avoided the sort of things I would normally alway...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC32 May 2017 - Submissions until 21-05-2017 11:59pm GMT+1/CEST

Actually, that is already covered in the "Rule Book" (incl. recommendations for loudness and maximum dBFS values) The idea behind all of that, is that you should focus on properly mixing individual channels and use as less as possible modules/plugins on the summing bus, not "premaster" the track. T...

Re: MIX CHALLENGE - MC32 May 2017 - Submissions until 21-05-2017 11:59pm GMT+1/CEST

That is(!) a bit much on the master bus. Several states of saturation, additional EQ for some "wide" small added boost, compression, added gain plugins (even though it's for pulling down the loudness again)... May I ask what output levels do you have VU and Digital max peak wise? And what was it be...
