RE: Colton Benjamin: 'Can't Let You Go
I really like how the OHs 'bloom' at the top.

The only things that bother me is the instruments being panned in the center. It feels a little crowded. That one background vocal in the chorus is pretty out front. The mix feels a little too compressed and restrained. It's a cool tone but it sounds 'pinched'. I don't think it's on the mix bus because that one bg vocal doesn't effect it. Maybe it's on a submix that that vocal didn't get sent to. I dunno. Just guessing.

Other than that it feels pretty good.

I only have earbuds to listen and mix with at the moment. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

A mix doesn't have to be good, it just hast to sound good.

+1 on the panning and the low BV that is too loud. And the double take lead vocal on te second verse, erase it Wink

But what do YOU think of it?

RE: Colton Benjamin: 'Can't Let You Go
Thanks. I enjoyed making this album a lot.
But my question was actually what do you think about your mix? What things did you struggle with and what things are you happy/unhappy with?

Getting the hi hat in the overheads to sit in the mix bit of a a challenge ,
I think i went a little overboard with compression.
I should have used a reference Big Grin
