Stay Home - Realize Mixoff

Hey all,

Here's "Realize" off of Stay Home's debut (and final) LP. My friend Baxter did the original recording/mixing, but sent me the Garageband file so I could mess with it and also gave me permission to share the multitracks here.

My (unmastered) version:

The original can be heard at: http://stayhomeny.bandcamp.com

Hello, hello! My first post here (I think).

Anyway, I'm a bit late to the party, but here's my mix of the song:

I think I did a damn well job on it, although more automation would be needed, but overall I'm pretty pleased with the results. I went through all of your mixes, but as it was a few weeks ago, so I should re-listen to them in order to comment, wich I'm not inclined to do :)

One other thing: this forum is amazing, thanks for existing, mixoff forums!

I like how tight and bright this mix sounds, but there are a few issues with it. First of all, the drums don't fit at all with the style of music. The kick and snare sound more like a pop song than... (read more)

One of the clearest mixes I've heard. Very tight, it fits together well. You even did pretty well with the drums, without using triggers. I may have changed the vocal verb a bit, but aside from that I think the band would be pretty happy with it!
Thx Lead_Airplanes :) , but to tell you the truth I did trigger the snare and blended it with the original... :)

My first go at this (other than my own demos). Really interested in learning to mix and really happy I found this forum. Anyways,

I think if i put some more time into vocal automation I could really smooth it out and get it to sit better on top of the mix. I track like that a don't think you can do with just compression, no matter how many layers and how gentle.

Everything done with standard PT12 plugins except for a bit of RAxx and RVox I just got on black friday sale!

Look forward to hearing what you think! Thanks for the tracks!

Haven't been doing this for very long, but here's my cut at this one.  Fun song!

I think with a few changes this could be a really solid mix. Pretty much everything has a bit of a honky "radio" sound, which is an easy fix - don't cut as much of the lows and highs, or don't boos... (read more)

I took a crack at this one, very cool song. I always have a hard time with such over driven guitars, took me a while to get em like I want them. Thanks for posting the tracks! Comments and criticisms always welcome!

The flange on the intro guitar was a nice little surprise :)  I would probably automate it to bypass during the main parts of the song instead of leaving it to play through, or at least drop it dow... (read more)

I used to have trouble, too. I like the direction you were going with this mix, and I think the band would like the effect you used on the guitars - I recorded an EP for them a few years ago and a ... (read more)

Yeah, your link isn't working either. It says to listen on the Soundcloud site. Here's mine: https://soundcloud.com/madrockradio/realize-v2

I like the mid range on the bass, but the low end might be a bit boomy. The drums are tight and punchy. Did you quantize or adjust them, by any chance?

I also hear some pumping on one of t... (read more)
