Here's my mix. I have to say, these tracks are really well-recorded.

Anyway. I finished a mix from this song couple of days ago, but wanted to live with it for a while. I spent some time getting the changes from verses to choruses rock. This song reminded me quite a lot of AIC's "A Looking In View" so I went with that in mind.

I like your mix clean and nice.
But if I may say somthing, I would say that the kick is to loud in the mix, and therfore makes a pumping effect on the stereobus, and that may be to much for the limiter som kick sounds a little distorted.
But by far the best mix on this track

Thanks. That "Kick hitting the master bus compressor" -phenomenon is a thing I've been fine-tuning for the last 1,5 years. To me it seems to be the "secret ingredient" for the attitude in Andy Wallace's mixes. Only now I realize that I guess not everybody's gonna like that thing.

I put this mix together, see if it's in the ballpark for the project. My time is a bit tight right now, but I like the track, and would dig working on it.




This is the first thing I've mixed on my Equator D5s, so the tonality may be a bit off, if anyone cares to comment on that aspect!

Not that i don`t like it, indeed a "Secret ingredient".
Dont know what you have on the stereo bus, but i think the release time is to short on the bottom end.
That way it sounds a little more distorted.
Andy`s mixes has a more clean bottom end, yes it pumps but not distorting.
Don`t know if I makes sense now, but trying to discribe what I hear.
I`m not necessarily right, so please correct me if Im wrong

I heard this more as a metal record than a "Nickelback" record. I gave it a little pop-rock gloss, but mostly just tried to focus on attitude. Yes, it is crushingly loud on the master buss, but the reference was also crushingly loud. Hope ya'll like it.
