Mix feedback please. Before & after "Blamster"

Postby mrMRKelly » Sun Dec 09, 2012 10:14 pm

Following from my previous post, i think I've finished mixing my new song "Blamster" (only name i could think of)

I would really appreciate some feedback so i can see if I'm on the right track with my mixing. I suppose the question is, was it worth the time and trouble if it sounded ok in the fist place?

The mixed track is: https://soundcloud.com/mrmrkelly/blamster-1

The unmixed track is: https://soundcloud.com/mrmrkelly/blamster

Thanks

Matt

I preferred the gritty synth part without the reverb.

The piece is good. Reminds me of the sort of thing you'd hear during a car chase in an action movie.

For me, adding vocals would ruin it...

I couldn't get to the unmixed version, but really liked the piece. Nice work Ended a bit abruptly though...

Sounds great to me - nice and gritty main synth driving the track along nicely.

I agree with Mr. Elf in that adding vocals would spoil the vibe, unless the vocals being added are a few samples/shouts here and there to compliment the feel of the track. I have the same issue with my work, never know whether adding vocals is really worth it..

Good stuff

Thanks for listening! Personally i just prefer writing the tracks as supposed to vocals, i cant sing anyway! lol Glad that you think it is interesting enough without though!
