Hi there
welcome !
Nice sounding mix
Haven't tried this mix yet ,just having a general listen ,sounds like the vocal may need a little De-essing.
Maybe the cymbles could have a bit more presence and a tiny bit of bottom end off the snare.

Good work
Don

Your last mix is definitely better, but you could make the vocals connect more with the instruments I think. Its not that either sounds bad, they just dont fit together, at least to my ears. You may think Im crazy but I miss a little instruments when he sings. Maybe you should back off a little compression and use some automation if things drown or get masked. But as I started: your last mix is better, maybe the next will get best.

Not bad. It has potential, but there are a few problems:

The biggest problem is a lack of stereo spread; everything seems squashed to the center. To fix that, I'd try this:

First, listen to the drum overheads, try to determine where each drum is in the stereo image, then pan the positions of each of the close mics as close as you can get them to those positions; that should give you a good stereo balance on the drums.

Now look at the individual instrument tracks and imagine in your mind's eye a stage where each of those tracks represents a performer; make sure your performers are spread comfortably on your mental "stage." Wink Now, adjust the pan on each track until each instrument is in the place where you picture that performer in your mind.

Vocals, of course, will be dead center. Don't like the reverb much; I'd use a smooth reverb, something that sounds like the reverb on a concert hall stage. Keep it subtle; if you can hear it clearly when you solo the track but not when you're playing your entire mix you've probably got it perfect. Wink

Speaking of the vocals, where's the backing vocal track? It's totally buried here; I'd bring it up to near the level of the lead vocal, which itself could come down a dB or two.

Finally, I'd bring up the level of the individual instrument tracks a bit and dial the drums down a dB or two; they're not TOO bad in level where they are but the snare does feel like it's smacking me over the head a little... Confused

On the plus side, the bass sounds nice and full here; like that. Smile

Personally, aside from a little more presence from the cymbals (which is what you were going for) I don't hear much difference between this mix and your prior attempt; my original recommendations there stand.

Also, on this second listen I get the impression you're using some kind of compression in your mastering here. I'd remove it entirely; this kind of music doesn't benefit from compression in mastering IMHO.

Aside from the problems I already mentioned, your earlier mixes were better; dobro's WAY too far forward in this mix IMHO.
