I would agree. Also, remember to try playing the mix through speakers at low volume as well. That can many times unearth mix inequities. A solo or vocal that is too loud will stick out like a sore thumb. It is always a good idea to try many listening scenarios. Many people even put the mix on speakers and listen from the next room for a different perspective. An interesting idea.chckn8r wrote: Wouldn't say your voice was too hot, but rather drums were to low, I'd probably have brought the kick and snare up (or maybe compress them some more) more than drop your vocals down.
A big part of it for me is just enjoying the creative process. It is a thrill to have a finished song. Also, I have enjoyed going back and listening to collections of Tony's stuff or just going onto Soundclick and listening to a bunch of Zoetrope's 2000 tunes. I think more of us should make up albums of our materiels and present them for listening to each other. Some of my output is uneven, but I think I could cobble 4 or 5 pretty good tunes into an album. I would like to add a bunch of hmhs people's tunes to my iTunes collection. I really should do that. It might be helpful if people suggested an album of songs though. This has been a recurring idea of mine.Pablo wrote:Recognition? Well, you, The Cracks, said that there are billions of songs over there, and it's true. Probably the song would sink in "that ocean". So what's the use? Really don't know.
