    meLoCo_go, thanks a lot for commenting, much appreciated!

    You're saying, that the sound could be more aggressive in the rock parts...do you think that the guitars might need a bit more 'sharpness' or punch ? Could you clarify, please ?

    I'd like to hear more kik in that part - but you can probably add more bass instead; I don't hear enough bass "pulse" there, it doesn't make me slam.
    The snare could be a bit brighter and maybe guitars could be a tad brighter there also.


    Yeah, one overall thing... We probably could agree on average rms level r something in future. Mixes do vary a lot in that respect!
    When in doubt, mumble!

    Hey meLoCo_go,

    very cool that you finally also tuk the time to make a review. Thanks for that man!

    Need to check how you treated your guitars
    I think I did really nothing fancy, a bit of delay and reverb here and there, so that every guitar has its own space. In the pre rock part there is a tremolo guitar on the left which is actually a bit shy in tremololoing (is that a word?). I gave it a bit more tremolator by soundtoys. The right one (the auto panned one) I wanted to have with a bit of James Bond character. I first thought about a trashy spring-reverb but in the end it was mostly delay that fitted to the song. In the rock part I also used a bit of flanger in addition. The rest is balanceing and fader-riding I guess. But feel free to ask if you want to know something specific.

    I like the intro but rock'n'roll part could have a bit more "meat" and could be a bit louder compared to intro. I like background vox you added in outro but I got used to the distorted bass in it too much so it sounded sorta empty.
    Hey, thanks for the review.

    I totally agree with you about the rock part. I'm not pleased about this thing in my mix.
    I should have begun the mix with this part (the loudest in this song).

    The cavernous back vox is just the "aardy vox", pasted and time stretched with that elastic audio and some very basic things i don't remember (I can do a search if you want). To strengthen the "funny" aspect.

    I liked how you EQd your gtrs, you really made the trick "boost a lot of top-end and catch it with LPF" work!
    When in doubt, mumble!

    That's a good use of Elastic audio)

    Thanks, glad you like it! Oh yeah I forgot the eqs. I attached some screenshots from the guitars- and the B3-settings in the rockpart.
