    the point is that i expected not to win but i thought that i would have been blown away by the tracks of the winners and i wasn’t………the choice of the team was perfectly fine because is was based on personal preference and that’s a given in music, in general everyone likes different things ( thank god!) for example to me the best ( my personal…[Read more]

    • In my very humble opinion if by the time you’re mastering you have to “re-evaluate all of your mixing choices” or do tons of processing your mix isn’t done. Whatever reevaluation of mixing decisions or the tons of processing can and should be done at the mixing stage, they can be done faster and easier too. If you notice you tend to do a lot of…[Read more]

    that’s what they said but have you listened to the 3 winners?
    for example yours was good too but like theirs the big difference form mine is the mastering part ( btw i am not saying that you did a bad job or that i am a better mixing engineer than you because i am probably not) however i don’t wanna be whining for something that i can’t control so…[Read more]

    • I just heard your remix and IMO the biggest difference between theirs and yours isn’t mastering, it’s the actual song. And your remix is not bad at all, just that the team happened to prefer the announced top three. I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but even if you did master your remix it’s not going to suddenly increase your chances.…[Read more]

  • i asked if i needed to do the mastering on my track but nobody replied to me and since on the PLP site it was said that this was not a lowdness competition i didn’t i guess it was a mistake since all the 3 winners have their mastering done……
    i know that in term of mixing my track is not the most crisp( and the unmastered version didn’t make…[Read more]

    • Mastering wouldn’t have made much difference, they level match the entries. So they either turned up your remix or turned down others or both.

    • Phillip Fu. Absolutely. Mastering plugs can be used in the mix process to creatively sculpt dynamics and colour in a way that is difficult to recreate in the mix stage sometimes. As I’m sure we all have done at some point, you start writing a tune and 20% of the way in you pop on a mastering plugin and start cranking it. Sounds great! you leave…[Read more]

      • Although i must say. The commercial tracks you hear are nearly all at around -8 to -10 LUFS.
        Average RMS -7 to 9dBs. Peaking at 0dBs and sometimes more! All the artists seem to ignore online streaming guidelines for levels. There is still a loudness war! lol

    very nice all kinds of variations
    now this is not related to your track but i think that i’m gonna “copy” your mixing of the chorus since in mine i used the falsetto voice in the forefront but how you made it sound here is so much better
