    Turn the keyboards wayyyyyy up dude, can barely hear them.

    really like the drum here, id take some of the low of the vocals though
    and add some major body (eq) to the guitars.

    Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, keys were too low. I made those changes you suggested, dunno was it enough tho. Maybe I should automate keys more...well if I have time to I will. This was a really quick fix with headphones because our baby is sleeping. :) I have to say I like this song very much, so thanks for sharing these tracks, this was a great practice!

    First Mix, will go further today. [Any feedback is welcome!]
    Really, really dig the song!

    The vocals are really well recorded IMO.

    What Mic/Preamp was used?

    To any other mixers out there mixing this song, try some automatic if you didn't already! Really keeps the mix in balance and gives some parts that extra need of attention.

    Nice! I'll give some quick feedback. Kick is too loud although sounds pretty good. Snare isn't as punchy as I'd like, try working on the compressors attack. Vocals are very muddy, scoop out some mids. The masterbuss may be working slightly too hard as well.

    And here is my version:

    The song is great! Had a lot of fun with it. Worked most on trying to minimize the cymbal bleed in the snare mics. I think it's more cymbal than snare in those mics haha!

    Can't seem to get the intro the way I want... it just never sounds right to me, and sticks out as less than stellar in comparison to the rest of the arrangement :(
    I tapped out the drum midi for now and replaced them entirely. Here's a snippet of very bad mix : /

    Hi, thkaudio!
    Think your mix sounds really good. Just a few tweaks I'd like to add:
    • Cut some lower mids from guitars.
    • More definitive snare.
    • Slightly more body to the kick and toms.

    Vox sit well in the mix. So I concluded that mine are probably too bright.
