Quick 1 hour mix
Spent about 1 hour mixing this song. On listening back, I would change a few things but this is how it turned out anyway.

Mixed in the box on Cubase 5 with the following plugins
  • Izotope Ozone 5 (Reverb, Exciter, Imager, Dynamics)
  • Waves CLA-76
  • Waves V-EQ4

Would love to hear suggestions for improvement or any other feedback.

[Edit] #Take 2 mix below.

The noise removed at the start and finish would be good,i like the vocals the way they sit together.
I think the acoustic is a bit too wet but that might be just me,also i think the acoustic could have
a bit more bottom end not too much
Thanks for the input takka360 Wink

Yeah, listening back I feel it was a bit too wet with reverb. My ears must have become immune to it during the mix. I'll try and improve it and post another.

Thanks again.

What kills mixing that song also is the guitar track over the vocals,why they do this then wonder why
they cant get a great mix ,you see it time and time again.
# Take 2
Was aiming to accomplish the following. Hope it works.
  • Brighten the vocals to give them more clarity and air.
  • Push the female backing vocal to the back
  • Give more body to the acoustic
  • Fix the reverbs

Again, all thoughts welcomes Wink

I'm listening to the second version.

The lead vocal is too loud IMO. It also needs some volume riding as there are spots where the vocal really stick out a lot and hurts my ears. I know the recording isn't perfect, but maybe you can get rid of the nasal vocal sound some more.

I don't really hear much of the backup vocal, but I think that's primarily caused by the lead vocal.

The mix sounds very compressed to me.
