The Veil- NoEqPlease

http://nicksevilla.com/music/TheVeil-NOEQPLEASEMIX.mp3

Hi,

This is a mix I did last year. Let's see what you guys do to it.
Although I included a PT session file, feel free to ignore that.
All the audio starts at the same time.
The Tempo is 134 bpm.

I found this song and have had a lot of fun mixing it. I really like how dark it feels.
I pumped up the drums a little, using bass boost and tons of compression.
I really tried to bring out some of the other sounds...they are so awesome and i felt that they needed to be emphasized a little bit more.
Thanks for the project and I hope you enjoy this.

Let me just check under the hood.  :)
I started off by giving it some Auto Tune (Antares) set to graphical mode to minimise the Cher factor. Once that was rendered, I ran the vocal thru a Waves SSL for the high pass / lowpass effect and not much else (maybe a squirt of compression & a very small amount of low mid eq). Then I bussed the vocal out to 4 auxs. 1: I used a Waves H-Delay set to 1/2 notes that I did quite a bit of automation on. 2: I used a whacky infinite delay on Analog Toys Crystallizer that only gets brought in throughout the solo and after the line "you and I, still together". 3: A LexPlate. Lots of pre-delay and with a widening effect to keep it out of the way of the vocals. (TimeAdjuster>LexPlate>bx_solo) Actually listening to the track now I can barely hear it. 4: A Waves Doubler4 to widen out the vocal and chorus it up. I fed it thru a CLA-76 Bluey and Waves Center on the end of the chain. (CLA-76>Doubler4>Center)
Cheers

O.K.

I listened to the five remixes. In no particular order, here are some pointers:

Koma Klown : Nice treatment of the rhythms. The replacement drums work nicely, and give a lot of excitement. I also like the bass, nice and present, punchy. The vocal for the first verse is very good, in the right place in the mix.But it just gets buried in the first chorus, and does not come back for air. Compare the firsr and last verses to hear what I mean. The synth during the last vocal line of the choruses is simply too loud to be listenable with the vocal. It just kills the vocal line, which happens to be the most important line in the whole song. The solo needs a lot of help form the mixing engineer. It could have benefited from some more creativity with automation / texture changes, etc. I am sure if you spent a couple of hours more on just automating the vocal against this mix, it would really improve. And coming up with a creative way to solve the "meh" solo section woul... (read more)

Hi Everyone,

I have removed the Multitrack from my server, and will over November, listen to all the mixes.

Once I'm done listening, I'll announce who I liked best, and send them a nice piece or gear from my studio.
