    I really like this, it's really nice and relaxing. The synth at 0:45 is really cool, the vibrato effect is a nice touch.

    I started to experiment with... well. Experimental music. I know this shit is really weird and abrasive, and most of you won't like it. If you could give it a listen and tell me what to work on, that would phenomenal.

    I want to see how my mixing skills are at the moment, and how they've improved. Ignore the disorder on the first song, it's just pracctice giggles. The second one is from 5 months ago. Any advices on the first pieces regarding mixing would be more than rewarding.

    i like this alot, the melody is pretty awesome and you've improved your drums a huge amount since you've been posting here. not sure the singing is my kinda thing, but that's just a personal preference of mine, though i think im warming to it a little bit. try bringing the highs out in the voice a bit and boosting the volume in them, and bringing out the snare a little bit more somehow.

    it has a really warm, natural feel which i think is perfect for a track like this. nice job.
    Thanks man! It is nice to hear other the improvements I've made in that department I tried bringing up the highs in the voice and boosting the overall volume of both snare and vocals up, and it made a huge difference, thanks for the input and thoughts mate

    Your songs are starting to get a more "French" feel which I think is great.

    no

    maybe the problem is every jerkoff that visits CMIP doesnt care about giving anyone else crit other than "Wow, Nice Job! Check Out My Track!" (bar the few people who know they dont give shit crit)

    man the fuck up and give crit, if you dont recieve any you're not giving enough

    I imagine with some smooth drums over the top this has the potential to be the introduction of an album

    (by the way i think you should do an album i'd totally buy it bro)

    My voice was shot when I recorded the vocals, I'll record them again tomorrow.

    I think having the vocals being more distinct and less soaked in reverb (while still keeping them low in the mix) would add a lot to the overall feel of this song, right now too mcuh is reverb'd which makes it all sound too distant, I think the kick sounds mighty fine with the reverb and should be a tad louder though.

    I think the erratic guitar could take a step back in the mix

    Here's an instrumental cover (vocals will be added) of Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley, thoughts and ideas are much appreciated

    Listen to Soundcloud recording

    I think this is the second time i've noticed this problem with your vocal mixing. It's too indistinct and washy, too much reverb involved and not defined enough. That said I totally understand the idea behind it, which is to keep the vocals more as an instrument then as a leading mechanism, similar to how latter day Talk Talk did it or some other post rock outfits that I know of.

    If I were you I'd push the reverb back a bit, and lower its volume instead. Maybe experiment with delays if you want that "other end of a cathedral" feel. As for the guitars, push them back a little too to make it more even.

    I really like this though. Has a lot of potential and if this is what your album will be I'll definitely download it

    This one is really nice too, nice strings but maybe the low end is a bit iffy at the start

    Edited:

    Nice composition but if the acoustic is the only or at least the main instrument in the track then I think it needs more stereo width, a bit more reverb (but not much at ALL, just enough to lend it a bit more character), the low end needs to be brought up - generally that's a big no with acoustic guitars when they sit with other things in a mix but as it's running solo you can afford to bring it up a bit. At the moment its quite a sharp edgy sound I think, which could do with a bit of curbing. The first track suffers from this a lot more than the second though.

    Thank you both for the suggestions! Unfortunately, I recorded those vocals with reverb, meaning I can't remove it. Right now, I'm pretty sick and tired so I won't be able to change them just yet, but I can definitely see the problems you are pointing out. I've already fixed the mixing with the guitar and the viola plucks, now all I have to do is to "not be sick".

    really liked this, very dreamy
    reminded me of Active Child
    I disagree with the note about reverb on the voice, I like it
    but i know nothing about mixing so don't listen to me

    Very calming though, should probably try it with that rainymood site
