    I don’t know if that’s the highpass on the master bus thing you mentioned in the “share your technique” thread (https://ratemymix.com/topic/malamor-sharing-your-techniques/page/3/#post-11661), but i feel like levels are good but the mix lacks some lows and sounds a bit harsh (especially the guitars) and thin.

    I don’t get this website. Yeah I over eq’d the guitars and cut too much mids, they were already scooped. I honestly thought the cymbals were harsher though, I put some saturation on the overheads. As for the bass or lack of, it was 90% the global eq I didn’t need in the first place. The last car test still sounded muddy and I rushed for a bandaid because I didn’t want to miss the deadline. I thought a 6dB/octave high pass would be a light enough touch, but I put it at 39Hz which was just overkill. All that said, I’m still very happy with my mix. Mostly because it’s literally my first ever full and complete mix, and it’s at least not junk, but also because it was so much fun to do. I also learned more in a month than the last couple years just working on my own projects, so It’s a win for me no matter what.

    This mix would sound pretty well balanced if it had some lows. Cymbals a little hot for my tastes as well in the heavy crashing parts. Just take off that high pass and your mix will be much much better. Good luck! If you get a chance, check out my mix, always appreciate the feedback. \m/
