The Brew - What I Want - ArmedNDaverous Mix
#1
Great raw tracks to work with.  Very good song to mix, thank you for posting!  Mike's podcast about this mix was very helpful as well.  Here's me take on it. I didn't use the mono drum room mic. It might've made it a little hollow in the middle for the drums and the cymbals unnaturally wide, but I also kinda like it.

Sounds great. My only thought is that the keys could have a little more mid/lower mid energy to fill things out more. They feel right up there with the vocal and guitar and snare and things get crowded. The bridge feels more like what I'm thinking. Maybe it's a change in keyboard patch. I can't remember.

But other than that it feels really good.
I only have earbuds to listen and mix with at the moment. Take everything I say with a grain of salt.

Hey Roy,

Thanks for the feedback. You’re right, there were different keyboard patches used for that song, they were all on the same track.  I did mult them to separate tracks but some of it definitely could’ve used some more attention and fattening up in the mids like you mentioned.  Thanks again!

Hi Dave, this sounds great!...and what a great song to mix, too! It's been quite a while since I mixed it myself, but I remember really enjoying it...

Just taking in your mix on headphones (HD650) and it really sounds sweet. Vocals are beautifully treated in particular.

About the only thing I noticed was that sometimes the guitar competes just a bit with the vocal. I think the decision to centre pan it may be the reason. I wonder if pushing the guitar out to the side for the verses and choruses and bringing it back centre for the lead sections might be one way to deal with it...

Or even leave as is but trigger some sidechain compression to bring the guitar down a tad when the vocals are present.

Great mix!
