Hello Skott, this sound is interesting, has a tone of pop,with a good voice may be something in the line of Adam Lambert... And the difference the sounds, is 1.5 khz up to 8 kHz, and depth is greater, and there is a feeling of breath. The File no Nebula, has serious of kicks and no depth. Although the sound not very characteristic of the nebula,Finally what did you use library? It seems a mixture of saturator with Equalization smooth, although there is a good depth... Seems a pre that I had, "Vt4000", a pre made in Brazil... What is this library?
I heard some work on your Profile,I really enjoyed... It has personality, "new order", very good. And his mix seemed ripe,very good...Well done and characteristics of album is organic and futuristic. Congratulations for your work, because I know that was made with much effort. I need a lyricist for a song in English or Spanish, I have the arrangement, and do not have lyricist. A big hug my friend.
Well, I don't know what you've done and I'm not an expert at all, but the processed file sounds way much better to me. There is (apparently) more bottom end, more overall body and these rhythmic strings cut stronger through the pads/choir without being aggressive. The whole mix feels more compact and glued.
