Mastering compression...add if it's missing or increase effect for clipless loudness, especially in the mids.

It's not bad... not the genre I prefer, but I listened to the ENTIRE track. It's not a muddy mix. Elements exist within frequency ranges. There has been attention to detail here. I'm a Christian, 63 year old white male, so I'm out of my comfort zone here of Beatles, Beach Boys, ABBA, and Eagles, but I liked the "middle" part of your track where it got a little rhythmic. I didn't pay attention to ANY of the lyrics or analyze anything that was said (I rarely do anyway). Keep making music! You've done more than me... I only have done instrumental covers. I've still got about 35 years or so left to do an original song of my own. Don't give up!

Re: Audio Mixing Engineers, Musicians and Fans of Music Welcome to review New Mix of my song:
let's do this,

first of all op we need to know what you are going for?

i have said this before to others,

you need a target audience otherwise you are creating it for yourself,

if that is what you want...no problem,

which is what is coming through on the track,

on a more musical note,

you have too many things coming through,

no one in their right mind will listen to more than 3 seconds of this thing,

the good thing is this,

you seem to know how to use soundcloud,

many people don't...for recording...music is another thing altogether,

nothing is matching on the track,

it is all mish mash, a bunch of things thrown togehter in a blender and it comes out like a freight train,

another good point is the voice,

the voice sounds cool,

you have a good voice...

now you need a real song to lay it on

Re: Audio Mixing Engineers, Musicians and Fans of Music Welcome to review New Mix of my song:
To like a song you must be able to hear the vocals and you failed at this. Vocals must be up front and that is the first rule of recording.
Being honest it is a horrible recording.
I have been recording a long time and in the music industry you must be able to take criticism and use it constructively.
Redo the song and watch some youtube videos on how to record properly.
Good luck in your musical career.

It sounds pretty good. The only complaint that I might have would be that when all of the instruments come in, your voice gets really muffled and sort of becomes muddy with all things happening at once.

Maybe that was the effect you were going for, but it felt off to me, whereas the rest of the song felt very clean.

And what the other guy said: guitar and voice have a battle for the same frequency range. I would let the voice play in center and use a mid/side eq for guitar.

Voice is too far back in the mix.
Why are the shitty electronic drums so far forward?
Cut the shit with the auto-tune, it's amateuric and aggravating.
Lacks any variation in dynamics.
The song itself is a poor imitation of an out-dated style.

Re: Audio Mixing Engineers, Musicians and Fans of Music Welcome to review New Mix of my song:
A message to sound engineers. Please listen to the final recording on some low quality speakers instead of your high end studio reference speakers. Better yet, listen to it on some shitty speakers in a noisy environment, because that's what a bunch of people are going to do and they'd like to actually be able to hear it. No one but a sound engineer would have studio reference speakers anyway, so I have no idea why you'd use those as a reference. I'd rather the recording be something I have to turn down than something that I can't hear with it turned all the way up on my shitty jobsite speakers because some sound engineer working in a silent padded room with super high end sound equipment thinks it sounds perfect in that sterile environment. Rant off.

It sounds great. You should try to get placements in Video games, that's the money these days in songwriting and pre licensed tracks especially metal type music. It would work for a B movie horror soundtrack also. It's a lot of work to put something like that together. Good job.

Autotune... stop it.. Sing in your own voice. Ask Steven Tyler.

The clipping? (I think thats what it is called) is annoying.

Undermixing the vocals is tragic. If there is something to say, let it be heard. I was a fan of the tragically undermixed vocals of Fates Warning "Awaken the Guardian".. On the original cassette release, you literally could not hear the vocalists. They "Somewhat" fixed that when remixed for CD.

Don't do the same thing.
