Dave mix wise I would offer the following;

+ The drums are a little quiet even though it's more poppy, although I'd say it's still edm personally

+ Perhaps have the synth reduce in volume some more whenever a vocal event is present. Side chain the pluck to the drums - I know that's a cliched bit of feedback though

+ The snare slightly clashes with the pluck especially when you open the pluck filters. A bit nit picky.

+ on certain notes the bass is clashing / whirring / flamming (whatever)with something. Example > at 1.06



The track flows easily, wouldn't mind if you changed the pluck up for another sound (or morph into one) here n there to add some further interest. Nice work. Great to see u wander in here to the dark side of the forum

So, here's a track we're just finalizing. I was working on some new sounds for a Virus bank last week and while I was creating this pluck sound, I came up with the basic progression. A few hours later, I turned it into a song with melody, and sent it off to Avonlea for lyrics. We recorded it over the weekend and I'm putting the final touches on the vocals this evening (yeah, I know they still need some work). Anyway, it's probably too commercial/poppy for most of you, but I could use some feedback on the mix.



Got some nice flow in it Dave and with Avonlea vocal on top of it creates really sweet vibe (and catchy lol).

If any suggestion I could give you my friend it would be at 1:36 mark I would change this pluck to a pad for 16 bars (or so) to create a little break from this sustain pluck sound which you could reintroduce later again - just my $0.02

I hope we are still friends

Shux I pushed a key during exportation LOL.


Agree with Richard and Dave comment completely man and my suggestion would be - if you don't feel comfortable with creating a melodic theme then go through some arps and find one which seats well with your main melodic concept, the (at least in Ableton Live) you can extract it to a midi for your evaluation to see notes and timing those notes.

Also don't go for loudness but rather for coherence and levels of your sound/s - this will go a long way for you to start to see the difference

Cheers man,

Darek

You tend to keep the bass to an offset which really helps with a nice mix I think. One or two of the white noise sweeps are slightly loud.
Lovely synth work.


Yeah brother this makas two of us lol - appreciate

"......One or two of the white noise sweeps are slightly loud...." - will address this in the final version lol - trust me will be properly done on the end lol - if I'm not 100% happy from it then this will never see a daylight

Here is a remix of Calebs excellent and inspiring piano piece (https://soundcloud.com/calebgolston...in-london-piano)


I need to add a further break and then a drop on the end.
His original title was 'Sometimes I wish I lived in London'.

Any thoughts on this so far?

Definitely one of my favorites from you, Darek.


And this is really cool man to get you finally comment on my production

".....Her vocal sample is cool, although it will be very recognizable once Hearts on Fire is released - not sure that it's a problem, though, just sayin'....." - you maybe/probably right man, legally we will have to call my track a remix lol so I'm thinking that we ......... I will PM you later my idea lol.

Cheers Dave and I'm really tankful for hooking me up with your vocalist/s - it is pretty awesome to work with such professional people - now I can really be creative

Just a bit for a 16 bars - but I really like this sound (Richard may not like me after this statement lol) - but this break will give you a little change to the vibe/groove.

this is how I feel Dave.

Lol, love this face lift to Caleb instrumental track - sounds really cool man, in this particular genre (and you are really good in it) it is all about dynamics and melody line - as far as melody line concern (at least from my perspective) you got it right Richard (oh maybe make those vocal verses more prominent lol), but you will need to get a slightly better dynamics (with sound separation) in you production to make appropriate impact on your final work (from listener perspective).

I got to say man - you consistently improving your skills and with your talent combination - "You Are Really Danger"

Wow, that's a pretty cool interpretation. I listened to Caleb's track first (very nice piano piece) and was not at all expecting a DnB remix. It really works, though. The mix sounds nice and wide. The bass seems a little low in the mix, although, I'm listening with my iPad/earbuds at work, so don't put too much stock in that comment.

Speaking of Caleb and remixes, he and several other artists, including some TAs (e.g., Ben Acosta), remixed a song that Avonlea and I wrote many years ago and did an excellent job on it. The song is called So Far Away From Me and we decided a few months ago to make it available for remixes. I hope this isn't out of place, but if anybody here is interested in remixing it, let me know and I can make the remix pack available. You can hear the original and remixes at:
