Thickened the vocals and re-touched the VOX effect and volume, thoughts?
Much better. Vocals much better. Are you left handed? The instrumental pans could be switched left for right... Try it. Sometimes, when I listen to a mix in headphones, I swap the ears... NOTE: the overall sounds and FX are EXCELLENT.
I have uploaded two sets of wavs: one set, each wav marked with a 2-A, is the original. The other, each marked as the named wavs, is from the 2018 redo... Use as you wish, or advise... Thanks...
Hi Al, thanks, appreciate the feedback. Still developing my mixing/mastering skills and drums are quite a challenge when working from the separate SEP tracks. Interesting deduction, I am indeed left handed, that probably explains a different approach concerning my PAN choices in a tune. I'll pick up these SEPs in my next Kompoz time box, thanks for the extra effort.
In retrospect, I think there is more to be achieved with the vocals, but I would consider this a first good stab. I'll polish and re-sing this one in a next vocal Kompoz time box (next weekend).
Hah, I feel like Sherlock Holmes... When mixing drums from individual SEPS, here is what to keep in mind: How do I want the listener to hear them; as if there are sitting in the drummer's seat, or standing out front ? I usually arrange the pans so the listener is standing front and center. NOTE, I am talking about the complete set. Later, they can be panned, as a Set. As for the individual SEPS: Remember, they are stereo and centered. That means the signal is the same right or left. You can split the SEP to mono, and still have a full signal. Now, how to arrange the set? The overhead mics are labeled OVRHDRT & OVRHDLFT. I usually pan the right(RT) 50%, and the left,(LFT) -50%. That is, the right 50% to the right, and the left, 50% to the left. The snare's mics, (SNRTP, and SNRBT-I) both panned 10% to the right. Something you may not realize: The -I for the SNRBT and the KICK are to show their signals have been inverted versus the other drum SEPS. This usually eliminates signal cancellation or amplification because of the mic placement. The KICK should be centered, '0' pan, so it's bottom-centered, as a drum set would be. The HHAT is usually 35-40% right panned, although you can play with this SEP to expand the aural area. That now gives you a 6-mic set-up that should capture the original recording. If you are interested, I can give you some FX ideas. Thanks for the music...
