Loudness -30 db LUFS integrated. (target = -18)
Balance : Nice one, seriously nothing to say. The gut guitar during the verse 2 fights with the trumpet.
Tone : Good clarity, with no harshness, I wish I have more sub below 60 (kick, bass guitar), the lowest bass notes during the verse are just not there, bc of the cut. I really love the lo mid of the bass BTW. About the bass once again I can ear to much of the slide noise, the hi is maybe too boosted. Love the (mid) tone of the vocal tracks. More body for the brass ? Amazing snare, nice dark hihat.
Good, but the bck vocals could be more centered, especially in your mix, more glued with the main track. It would be better for the gtrs and brass I think.
Dynamics : Good, very subtle, the mix breath well . The way you dealed with the snare is unique. It makes it jump in a lovely way.
Space/reverb : Good medium decay verb, well panned (that help the snare a lot)
General : You did a really good mix bro. I just need a bit more sub. A question, why did you choose the alternative (doubled) vocal track as the main one ? The performance is not as good as in the other main vocal track for me. Hope you had fun working on it, I had some listening to it !!!
Honored to be considered for round 2, I think all your criticisms were fair and hopefully I can address the concerns you highlighted.
In regards to the vocals, to be brutally honest bro, I really felt your "22 AD LD VOC" double vocals were a more heartfelt take, and even had fewer pitch issues than the designated main vocal. I just thought you conveyed more emotion with that specific take.
Having said that, I'm not here to fuck with your song, so if you want me to swap them over and use 21 LD VOC as the main vocal that's no probs at all man. Just say the word and I'll swap them over. Cheers mate.
Cool reference btw Moa, some nice inspiration.
