Thanks for your feedback so far guys, maybe I have been a bit to aggressive with the high pass filters - that shouldn't take long to fix. I wasn't taking part in any zulu rituals or even other indiginous people of bass removal ceremonies
I guess this mix is the opposite extreme of some of the others - in a direct comparison then mine will sound really thin I suppose. The thing is, in my listening position & through my headphones the low end of the track is fine. I'll listen to it on a few different systems to double check.
The vocals in general, I'll have to put my hands up & say yeah, you guys are probably right about those. My thought process was that I didn't want the vocals to be fighting with the low frequencies so I've pretty much removed anything below about 200 - 250hz. Again, that's not too much trouble to tweak.
The voice going into Chorus 2 does drop in volume during the mix, I was trying to bring the synths & flanged rhythm out more but perhaps I need to work with it to make it sound more natural. I was trying to make that section a bit of a mini stop & go before the bridge.
The synths in the outro section, all I've done there is lift the high shelf slightly on the bridge synth & run the plucked bass through Delay Designer with a patch I've made (you can take it straight from the project if you want to, I'll let you. It's the lower of the two delay designers in the Crs Dly aux strip), throughout the mix I switch between 2 delay designer set-ups to try & keep it interesting.
The whispers part I knew I wanted to do when I first listened to the stems, I start off with the two whispers at about 11 & 1 o'clock then as the bridge develops I slowly pan those left whilst introducing the rest of the voices. iStudio72, you made an interesting comment about the whisper section and the massive echo - that's nothing I've added by the way, it's the track we've been provided called 52 Ambience. Again I can tweak it some more to try & make it sit better within the section.
That's the trouble with this track, there's so much going on in it I could tweak it for ever & yes, personally I do like to hear everything that's been recorded.
Keep the feedback coming though, good or bad I don't mind. One mans wine is another mans vinegar, or something like that…
