Hello everyone,

I would like to submit our new work,  before you listen to the file I want tell you that:
1 - the genre is new, someone have defined experimental punk future, but frankly I do not even know what that means, to do some cataloging is a genre that mixes electronics, drum & bass and punk rock.
2 - this is the first mix (ruff mix), I have to finish cleaning the item and put effects on it

I need some advice, but I like the mix seems too "fat" and I wanted some advice. I also have problems with azzittere s "sibilna" the voice, I advise you to do?

The file can be downloaded at the following link

Overall the mix is fairly decent.  The biggest critique I could give would be the guitar needs some work.  Most of the synth is wide, which sounds great, while the vocals and guitar are very mono.  I bet if you either delayed the left or right by a few samples, or if you processed the guitar differently for the left/right the vocals would push through better.  Also the guitar seems kinda thin when its just the synth and guitar, like after the first vocal part.

I hope that helps.

One trick I use to help create more of a stereo spread is this:

Pan one guitar hard left, eq'd and compressed as needed

Pan another guitar hard right, eq and compress as needed ... then if the tracks still have a centre image (they are too similar) I'll run a tape delay on this side, 0% feedback, 100% wet, and the delay time somewhere between 10-50ms. Its pretty much exactly the same as the above post saying to delay by a few samples. I just found tape delay to work well because you can also use the warble of the tape to add some color to one side.

Hope that helps!

I couldn't get any of the links to work

Why not post it to the board as an attachment.
