Jazz Chill. Love this kind of stuff. Performed track by track, girl vox and sax are samples ( I wish I could play reed/brass). The rest live performed. Drums are programmed in Strike. Mac>Logic> Protools 10> Peak. Nebula Raphlex all over the place. Some 4k too.

I have to agree with melonjack; was waiting for the lows to kick in...

All the best,

nice track!
interesting arrangement, very varied, with some surprising moments.
a lot of sounds that make it interesting here and there.
i only find the stereoimage a little to jumpy and inconsistent sometimes.

i don't know why you guys miss the lows.
it's an artistic decision and very suitable for this style of music, my two cents.

the big bottom is not needed all the time and for my taste much overused nowadays. this is just a little lighter and gives good space for other frequency-ranges.... i like that :)

thanks for sharing,

Kay, here it is, I kept out 190hz but boosted 80hz to make up and backed off the roll off. Richer for sure, or did I step in a mud puddle?

BTW- Tribute to Les Dudek, if anyone is old enough to know that artist. Brilliant and inspiring.

it's definitely not muddy.
but i would need both versions, to say something about the difference now.

it could be, that i prefer the first and lighter (bass wise) version, but that's just guessing, as i don't remember it clear enough.

hi paul,
after hearing both:
in comparison the new mix on soundcloud sounds a little dull, not muddy, but the crispness and clearity of the first mix - which i like and find, that it gives the music its liveliness - is gone. don't know what happened to the highs after your cut and boost in the lows, but it affected the highs too much for me.
maybe a compressor after the eq, that got too much lows and compressed too much??

i would take the first mix which is musically pretty nice already, and try to find a suitable eq, which gives some more fundament, without sacrificing the highs.
maybe a very subtle mastercompression, which condenses the overall image just a little bit.
what is your monitoring situation? do you have monitoring and a room, where the low and lowmid range is even enough to really allow the right choices?
otherwise good headphones could help ....

mathias

p.s. if you like, you can send me the first mix and i give it a go here on my system.
