Affirmation - MixOff

This song is a cover I produced a few months ago for an artist named Pali.

The day he finished recording his uke for the project was when he and I found out from the label that it needed to be turned in for mastering in 6 days, and I had 6 songs to finish lol. Most of the time was spent getting the uke sounding the best it could be. Considering I only had about 15hrs to edit, produce and somewhat mix it I think it came out ok. Though it could've been allot better.

Thanks Mattski!

I think there are some files missing though - at least I can't find any cymbals aside from the hi hat.  ???

My bad, it's fixed now. By the way I didn't include the BPM cause I did allot of tempo changes.

Mattski: Great mix! OH/Ride cymbal is a little loud for me personally but thats about it.
zusto: Good work! I think the uke could use some volume automation in two or three places to keep up in the mix. The drums have just a little too much 2/3k in them for my taste but I guess thats a subjective thing.

Overall the mixes so far sound pretty similar which speaks for the production.

Great track Mattski.

Here's my first mix: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2419037/Music/Affirmation-Duendito-Mix01.mp3

All ITB, as usual.

Tech notes:

- all channels have comp except for pad and Rhodes
- Rhodes has stereo chorus
- uke has EQ, Tape Delay and aux to Ensemble
- bass has Deep Bass Amp
- piano has a little EQ and aux to Space Designer verb
- drums have EQ - hi-hats have aux to Space Designer
- kick drum track is doubled via Logic Drum Replacement/Doubling
- Ozone in the output buss, with a little mastering verb

Thanks for the great song. A quick mix. Lost the right tone of the kick drum in the end after fixing some other problems. Last version has unexpected distortion in the mix at times.
