Did a quick mix on this.

Used Reaper instead of Cubase. Not that familiar with reaper yet so it might be way off. Also was to lame to use my desktop with my monitors. Was sitting on the couch with my laptop :). All mixed on headphones

@Mattski:


Very impressive mix. You really captured a great vibe with the choice delays and FX you added. Great job!!!


What's interesting to me is that this almost seems like a totally different band than the one that did the "Hot Rain-We Dem People" tune. In Hot-Rain, I almost felt like the tune was "over" produced which took away a little bit of the vibe (for me). In my mix of that song I found myself stripping some of the extraneous FX to try and focus more on the "meat" of the song.  This tune, on the other hand is very stripped down and practically stands on the vibe alone! Very interesting....

Shows , that this band is not only a group of great instrumentalists but that they are very versatile.


Again, nice work on the mix.

Another great recording from Hot Rain, and Thx to Mattski for uploading.

New revised mix Take a Breath V2

*edit*
I had my room measured by a professional acoustics guy. I knew I had some low end trouble, which was fixed.
So now I have to learn my room and sub over again!. So this is my first mix after the correction!.
I can hear the bass is a little on positive side!...  ;) But damn its fun mixing when you can hear the low end and its not muddy!... :D

I think the left and right spread is too wide?

Really!? I only panned The Elec gtr chuck and the acc gtr hard left/right!.....
Hows the lowend of the mix translating!?

Yes those are the ones.  Personal preference and mostly for my stereo listening not in the car or headphones - but I think hard panning shrinks the instruments in size too much.  Where if they are ... (read more)

Okay, took a stab at this. Here is my version:

My comments:-fyi..I'm listening on headphones so disregard my comments if you like  ;D


@MortenDK:

-Good balance. Mix is a little "warm" (for me). Could use a HF lift on the master buss to brighten the mix up just a tad. Bass tone just a little too "flabby" for me. could be made a little more tight with compression/limiting. But good job in general. Nothing really buggered me about this mix. All my comments were just my personal preferences and opinion, so take them with a grain of salt.


@NoviktheWise:

-I liked your snare sound/processing. Very good balance overall. Vox was a little too dry for this style of reggae, IMO. This tune has a sort of old school dub vibe which used lots of plates and halls for FX. Should be a little more 'wet' in essence but good job overall.
