Jay Menon - Through My Eyes (Perignon Mix)
Beautiful song. I'm a sucker for acoustic tracks, but I haven't mixed too many.

I didn't want to kill the dynamics, so I used very little compression.

Let me know what you think.

Delays on vocals are great. But acoustic guitars that play melodic parts, need to come through a little more, and need to be drier just a bit. Rhythm gtrs sound nice. Bass needs more midrange to be hearable, but it feels good, it is just a thing of taste.

lol No I wasn't saying that I suck at acoustic tracks. I was saying I'm a sucker for them. I love listening and mixing acoustic tracks. I just don't get a lot of them in my area. I get a ton of rap tracks.

But yea, I figured I needed something on the bass seeing as I couldn't even hear it in my car. I will definitely see about the acoustic guitars. I have reverb on most of them, but a slapback delay on the solo guitar.

Thanks for your input!

Second edit. I boosted the mid-range on the guitars and lowered the volume of the vocals. I boosted the mix of the vocal reverb. I also lowered the kick by a couple dB.

Final mix. I widened it slightly on the mix bus. Whatcha think?
