RE: Marcus Boeltz, Shut up and play
I like the punchiness of the drums. The main thing that jumps out of me is the distorted tone of the rhythm guitar kind of masks the lead. Both guitars feel a bit 'hyped'. I think there needs to be some contrast between the two.

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

Hi Cudjoe ,
listening on headphones and phone at the moment ,Nice solid mix ,cool effects in the intro ,on the phone and in mono on headphones the snare sounds a touch in the background ,listening in stereo the room or overheads are louder in the side channels.
Very minor things probably just my personal taste with some more central drums especially the snare .

well Done .

Cheers Big Grin

Hey Cudjoe.

both mixes sound pretty good

For my money, mix 1 sounds better balanced to my ears overall.

Mix 2 lead guitar levels seem lower and more set-back in the mix.....a bit distant even.

I know you said you had issues with the snare in mix 1 but i think overall the drums sound better and give more energy in mix 1 too. This may be a balance thing ' cos they sound good in the intro but as part of the ensemble performance they seem a bit diminished.

probably not the feedback you were looking for but its just what i heard on A/B listening.

hope it helps,

cheers, Simon

Be fierce in your encouragement, kind in your criticism and try and remember that the art of a good critique is not to make someone else's mix sound like yours...but to help the mixer realize their own vision.
