gimme that d**n kick man !
The only apologise i would accept - it is now Enzo's kick 😉
I think you need more drums in general there to support the hot driving bass.
It is close Toby ...April 23, 2017 at 12:33 pm #25736TobiKeymaster
Huh... a drummer wants more drums. Maybe a touch more kick, but I quite like it the way it is... I might rework it a touch more - but it's reached that - easier to make it worse, than better stage 🙂April 23, 2017 at 1:30 pm #25741Arthur LabusModerator
Ok, i can live with that statement 😉April 24, 2017 at 12:59 am #25778JesperParticipant
You are welcome Mr. Produce Like A Pro Big promotional Ar*sehole! 😉 Its always good to promote this fantastic band! I think the whole PLAPA community loves them! I do anyway...
You never ask for a mix review but you get one here anyway!..hope you don't mind;-)
Lots a subs here in my living room! Maybe a snippet to much to my taste, I don't know I don't have a perfect room or hearing but anyway.. Nice featured riff guitar before the last chorus, and I think you're mix really come alive from there. It´s great how the guitar riff comes first and then the tambourine/ claps and then the outro is genius! I would try to make thats kind of scenery changes all thru the song. I think what I´m saying is that I want that clarity and focus all thru the song on different instruments. Maybe you can find a sweetspot for the lead vocal thats stays present (I think its a little bit to low volume now, or just lack clarity) and feature the different instrumental melodies when it needs to? I really like that verb and overall feeling of you're mix Tobi! Keep up the promo work and indeed a great mix! Well done Tobi! 🙂

Thanks for the feedback. It's a busy mix. More so than I'd usually do, but that feels more like Little Empire than my usually stripped down mixes.
The subs are tricky, not least 'cos I don't have a sub. I've reduced them a lot in this version - maybe more. The vocal is quite 'up' on my system. But I'm not used to mixing with the Genelecs, yet. I find it hard to pick the vocal and bass levels.
Some of the mid range clarity has been squeezed out of the mix by Soundcloud. I'll have to go back and work those EQs a little harder. Try to get it to translate to soundcloud.
Awesome band! Love 'em so much!

nice job toby i like the soft organ sound and distorted guitar at 3:15 or so are good ...i never get good distorted guitars and i would totally be happy with those
great work manApril 26, 2017 at 5:23 am #25864TobiKeymaster
Distorted Guitar is set thru a parallel FX to UAD Studer A800 Tape Emulation and slammed to cheddar. Then blended with the 'dry' signal to taste.
First time I did it - v. happy with results 🙂
