First Mix Ever / Ghost Bitch
#1
Hi everyoneSmile,

this is my first mix and its absolutely not on the high level of this forum.
But I still wanted to upload it, because of faster progressing from getting feedback.

Hope someone gives me a little bit of feedback and could point out where this mix has clearly weaknesses.

Great, this first mix is pretty good already and does not have many of the obvious rookie mistakes (Still considering myself a rookie, lolz)

Some suggestions:
- The upright bass in the beginning is extremly compressed, because its the only thing it's very obvious, I would tone down the compression and automate it
- Push back the vocal back a bit - it dominates the mix and instruments are pretty quiet
- De-ess the vocal, lots of sibilance
- Kinda feels like you are not using the stereo spectrum to its potential, imo a wide stereo spread fits this kinda music
- Bring the sfx down in favor of the music, it should be the focus
- Push some of the percussion back (LP-Filter, Reverb and/or lower volume)

General Tips:
- Automate stuff! (e.g. in the end the piano dominates the vocal)
- Arrange stuff! (Build intesity and keep it intresting)

Keep it up, awesome as a first mix.
