s one i posted on this forum 20 pages or so ago ,hopefully this one is a better mix ,i cant decide at my end if the kick is too loud or not.
Yep looks like this one has had a lot of work put into it, you’ve definitely put it through it’s paces.
Personally, I like the kick’s volume level (at least, as its coming through my Mackie’s) cause it gives the mix some low end which is what a dance production needs.
Be interested to see what others think.
BTW, who is on the vocals?
thanks for your reply ,yes this one has had a few visits . it was one of my first individual serious attempts in cubase ,i`m glad you think the kick is ok ,i can never decide with drums , i used "moves like jagger"as a reference for the kick ,i know it sounds nothing like theirs but the volume is hopefully sameish. the vocalist is Charlotte who lives local ,we do collaborations now and again, she writes great lyrics,she wrote the lyrics for one of my tunes “Perspiration whisper” .
Sounds great ! Like the little runs between the lines, perfect timing. Michael.
really nice song…love the smooth vox…and nice arrangement…kick sounds ok to me listening on JBL 4206’s…Kevin
thanks Michael ,the runs between were done with the Shadow SH075 Guitar midi controller pickup, as were all the synth parts ,it`s great when you play guitar and can also access all the weird synth sounds ,i was realy happy with how those particular parts turned out.tracking or syncing with the Shadow can be a problem at times ,i suppose the perfect controller would be the one Alan Holdsworth uses the synthaxe .
thanks Kevin, what happened to the genelics.

flogged em on Ebay, they were just too small, got the JBL’s while I save up to get some big Genelecs…however, the JBL’s sound great so they may change my mind…
i think if i were going to get any more speakers it would be Yamaha NS10
s cause a lot of people seem to like them and lots of good reviews . i have some spirit absolute 2s and an old creek 4140 amp i bought off of a friend ,they sound good enough for me at the moment.but i`ve learned that my room "studio"and monitors are not enough on their own to mix with.
Speaking of speakers, I just picked up the Yamaha HS8’s and love them!
thanks a lot cmaffia .if you say Yamaha HS8’s are good i`ll believe that ,you do very good mixes. do you use any other type of monitoring, old ghetto blasters ,aurtone ,anything.
I’ve just finished "treating my room with bass traps around most corners of my room and the difference was quite staggering…listening environment is much better…hearing the speakers and not the room, I made myself 9 bass traps 1mx60cmx10cm…using some rockwool stuff and only cost around 80 quid for everything…I had some “breathable” material lying around which saved a few quid but still a lot cheaper than buying stuff and if you mount them 4 inches from the wall or ceiling they are more effective…
Regarding NS 10’s…the stuff I read about them was that they sound horrible and if you can get a good mix on them then the mix will sound good on anything else…which makes sense I suppose…Kevin
you must have a decent size room ,my room is only 6ft X 6ft and i know how people on the internet love their moggy`s ,but i could not even swing a small cat around in my room ,it has lots of acoustic foam all round ,kinda looks like a padded cell ,i am thinking of moving to a house with a big cellar and get it sorted out ,hopefully my sound will become a bit more underground fnar! fnar!
Yeah…got a room 5mx4m so plenty of space for the sound booth I’ve just finished building also…amazing what’s possible and how cheap it is if you do it yourself…If music is your life and you spend a lot of time in your studio/room then I reckon you should go underground…you know it makes sense…good luck with it, onwards and upwards !!!..Kevin
or downwards ,cheers Kevin.
Nice piece! It’s got a good hook. (I could hear the song way past the ending )
Didn’t hear the original version you spoke of but the mix on this is cool. Kick is fine.
You also have a nice collaborating partner.
