Hello, this song is from Warren's video on mixing with Waves plugins. I did use some waves products just not exclusively. Great song, full of energy. I used six buses and an FX bus. I employed some layered compression on Drums, used R eq on most buses with the PuigTec P1A cutting space on Acc and Elec GTR's . Vocal was doubled and sent into the Townsend mic emulation LD-800, R eq, Focusrite Red 3 compressor, R vox, into a de esser. The Mstr bus ended with only the TR5 Classic Clipper to contain transient peaks. I sent the print thru Ozone 8 mastering for balance and tone shaping. Ending with a final EQ cleaning low end rumble with the Aqua OCHRE. All comments and guidance welcomed.
Great mix Earl! Nice song also, haven't heard that one before. Only one minor thing to my ears, sometimes, between 1:05 and 1:30, I felt the left side cymbals a bit distracting, it grabbed my attention over the vocals for some moments.
Hi Spyros thanks for listening ! I attempted to reply to your email but it may not have been sent so I'm sending it again. I'm Old 🙂 Anyway, you were right about those left side cymbals, sticking out and spiking. The song can be downloaded from this video link, as a PLAP member it should open. The download tracks link is there. Great song to mix ! Cheers and thanks !
