Great advice on my last mix, how about this?
      #1022202 - 04/12/12 01:08 AM
Had some really good tips on my last mix from my bands first release. This is our second, so hoping it's an improvement. Just looking for general tips and tricks again!

Be curious to what people think the quality of the studio/equipment we used on this is like also?

Sounds great, man! Good job.

There's not much wrong with that mix, but... I would:

- dry the lead vocal up
- push the guitars a little wider
- tighten the timing of the kick/bass a little
- thin out the distorted vocal
- widen the vocal harmonies away from stereo centre

Its hard to tell from a Youtube video, but overall I'd say there's a bit of mid congestion and a slight lack of 'air'. The drums/tambourine show this most, but the lead vocal seems to fare best.
