Like the guitar work... 'de-greendays' the intro a touch. Drums in pre chorus - really good.
Vox is a little 'brittle' in the first verse.
The mix feels very fizzy + bright.
Production decisions are all cool. Like those left/right vocal FXs in the breakdown
Yep... cymbals are competing with the vocals in the final choruses...
Feels a little top end - very bright.
Other than that - great mix! Like all the choices. Energy is great. Really interesting use of drums and bass to change the 'shape' of the song. I'd dial back the top end a touch*
*I am still getting used to my new monitor speakers - so I'm 100% on where my frequencies are right now. ...maybe I left them behind the sofa... under some magazines... maybe Enzo stole them and buried them?!June 14, 2017 at 1:14 am #28216TobiKeymaster
Arthur mix has been added to the playlistJune 14, 2017 at 3:24 pm #28304Arthur LabusModerator
Thanks for such valuable feedback Andy !
That "bump" was in original recording on vocal track.

I just cut it out ...June 14, 2017 at 3:31 pm #28305Arthur LabusModerator
Hi Toby, thanks for feedback - always a highlight 🙂
It may be that Redd console plugin - it is very "dirty" 😉
I did some touch ups after your and Andy's feedback.
Muted HiHat track completely due there was everything but hihats on.
Tamed the drums in high area a little.
Removed "ploop" on vocal in intro.
Updated version above.
Thanks for updating the playlist(s) !June 15, 2017 at 12:55 am #28325Arthur LabusModerator
Cathing up the mixes ...
CHRIS: mix2 - pretty perfect as excepted. Like the kick in particular. Sometimes, there is a bit too much hard panned electric guitars for my taste. It makes whole song mostly right leaning when it appears. It seems like you only panned hard 🙂 Yeah, Chris Sweet in "Pan Hard II" 😉 Great work ! I mean your mix ...
KIP: Whoa, lot of saturation, very rich mix. It is warm and rusty 🙂 Love the density here. Nice panning edits. Well done Kip !
ANDY: Lot of reverb on vocal but i like it ! Also very dense ambience. Maybe the acoustic guitars are bit too upfront sometimes - i mean that "harder" way to play. Anyway great mix Andy !
TOM: Sounds great ! Love the edits in "breakdown". Could be mine LOL. Great mix Tom !June 15, 2017 at 2:34 am #28326Arthur LabusModerator
Cathing up the mixes … volume II
MAURICE: very "nice" Maurice. Similar to Chris mix - that guitar on the right is too hot sometimes. But sounds really good ! Cool using of stereo panorama. Great work Maurice !
TOBY: Agree with Chris - i see you in oversize laboratory glasses and thick rubber gloves 😉 Vocals editing may be confusing sometimes but so what - this is not nice song ! Great creativity with lot of edits. Huge compliment for tech side - it sounds really good and it was not so self-evident in the past. You are better in your 40's LOL
Summary: very impressed guys. Once again - it up to us how it sounds. Even with 7 plugins only !June 15, 2017 at 5:58 pm #28392ChewieParticipant
Thanks Arthur, I just learned this week how to effectively add reverb to a mix without making it too dense. I will try it on the next mix. Good ear!June 16, 2017 at 2:25 am #28398TobiKeymaster
Thanks Arthur! Really worked hard on the technical side. Yep, I think the confusion on the vox works for the mix 🙂June 18, 2017 at 4:22 pm #28465KipParticipant
authur always like the way you look at our mixes from another point of view
...i cant explain how much fun i had doing this with you guys
it really felt welcoming and a chance to learn and get us out of feedback threads and learning/sharing infoJune 20, 2017 at 2:08 pm #28548Arthur LabusModerator
Yeah Kip, i am feeling like a doctor between engineers 😉
Too funny: there are SEVEN mixes so far, so we are matching the thread title "Magnificent 7" ...
Coincidence ? Think not 🙂June 21, 2017 at 5:16 am #28577thedoveParticipant
not ben too active on here of late - bloody real life !!
Anyway I had a real quick go at this.
I think I maybe slammed it a bit...
Plugins are all stock from Ableton and I only used 4 (is that cheating;-) ?) plus an L1
