Barry, thanks for taking the time to critique my mix. I took what you said about the bass phase issues as well as the kick punching through the mix into consideration. Here is an updated version: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12979410/071511%20-%209%20multiband%20comp%20kick%20boost%202.wav Please feel free to critique this mix as well.

Kinsoubus, I really like your mix. Especially they intro. I noticed there was quite a substantial drop in volume right after the first chorus though.

And as an added bonus, here's a link to the WAV:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/25245080/11-07-15%20AHL%20Ambitions%20aglinder%20MIX.wav

I really like the ping pong effect at the beginning along with the wide guitars. It definitly has a nice spacious feel to it. The only thing that stood out right away seems to be the overheads. They sound loud and over powering at times. I would compress them a little more, and then automate.

Hi all

I'm new here so first of all, let me say thanks to John for starting this great forum, and Barry for agreeing to judge - I've had a blast mixing this track.

My mix is posted here:

http://soundcloud.com/the-grid-studios/ambitions-ah-mix

The download is a 24/48 .wav file, which has had some compression and EQ on the 2-buss, but no loudness processing.

Hope you enjoy it!

Cheers

Alex

Grid is good.

Thanks ! I tried automation, some things, guitars, kick & voice are getting louder in the pre-chorus, then stay loud... But if a drop is noticeable after the chorus, maybe I did that too strongly  ;D ...

Awesome mix, I really like it. Sounds like there is slight pumping going on though. Probably the compressor on the master bus.

Thanks! Yes, the stereo comp is set up to give a teensy bit of pumping, to give an impression of loudness even before those putative MEs get their hands on it...  ;)

There are some other interactions set up between individual tracks that might also contribute to the effect - the consensus may be that I've overdone it by getting too familiar with the sound over the last week, so I'm interested in feedback on this point.
