Hey MattWard,
I'd buy some good monitors, room treatment and an interface that suits your needs. If you have some money left, it's always nice to have a good mic and preamp. But that's me.


Hi Mikey! Arrangement and mix is good. I like the vocal reverb in the beginning, but it seems like a little too much later on when the mix gets denser. AND... you have to tune the vocals. 15 mins of Melodyne and the whole mix will sound a lot better.

Welcome back  ;)

Basically what Padraig said. Arrangement is actually more important than mixing. I think the overall balances in your final mix are good. The vocals need some volume automation to better sit in the mix. For a more commercial/polished sound, you need to dig deeper and work on the processing of the individual tracks, EQ mostly.


first of all, you want to pan the rhythm guitars hard (or almost hard) left and right. There isn't really any way around this if you want that big, commercial sound. This will make the mix wider, bigger and makes space for the vocals, bass, kick and snare in the middle. If you have this, we can see what else can be improved.

Hey there, I like that.
Nice sounding drum samples. May I ask what sample pack that is?
I think the overall balances are good. Everything is clearly audible. I think the kick could have some more low end and the bass guitar maybe less. The vocals are very up front. For more of a rock-approach, maybe the lead vocals a tad quieter with a touch of saturation and overall more compression on the master - if a rock approach is indeed intended.

From a production point, I think some (more) vocal harmonies could have been a nice addition. She has a nice voice that sounds like it stacks well.

This song would make a great mixoff though, don't you think?  ;D ;)

Hi Tim. Have fun!
People are a little shy with giving feedback to mixes these days. But if you comment on other peoples mixes yourself, the chances are better that someone will write some words about your mixes. You know, give some, get some...

Mandubien There is a really simple trick to make the mix hit harder when the full band comes in: Make everything before that a couple dBs quieter. Works every time.  ;D

Mandubien Not a bad mix! I don't have much to add to the things that have already been said. The first thing I noticed though, is that the acoustic guitar is not very tight timing-wise in the beginning. Some pocketing here will probably go a long way and make the whole track sound more professional.
Also, on the snare, some parallel compression might be good idea to get more sustain if you don't like reverb that much. It sounds a little dry and choked off right now.

Have you thought about making this available for everyone to mix? I'm sure many people would appreciate it  ;D
