Candlebox: 'Happy Pills'
Hi guys,
Here is my try, basicly all tracks in, only first vocal track is out. Actually I don't know what was it. Playing a bit with 2 limiters in a row on master bus. Critics very welcome.

Edit,
Ver5 is the latest. Reworked a bit on Eq on Drums, and probably Levels between Bass and Gtrs are a bit changed.

Great sounding mix. You kept the live raw sound and energy of the song in your mix, which I feel was important for this track.

Hi Lethan,

I love the throwback feel of the vocals. It's a very exciting mix, but maybe everything feels like it is competing to be the loudest thing in the mix. Maybe that is a result of running the double limiters. Rock should be loud. . . but this feels on the verge of breaking up from top to bottom, so maybe it's just too compressed.

I think you have some really great sounds, but something just isn't quite "there" for me. Sorry to be so vague.

Draper

Thanks Guys for comments and having a listen,
Draper, you might be right, and i guess it's a balance issue. Dropped ver5 "believeing" it's better.
Cheers.
