    ....but seriously, looking for constructive criticism. I took a crack at mixing the EP for the band I'm in, and appreciate the honest feedback. Thanks!

    Hey dude! The first thing I notice is that the clean vocals are very thin and they do not cut, and the screams are way way louder. Might have been on purpose, but at the beginning of the song and around 2:57, they just don't cut like I'd expect them to. I think the guitars are overall a bit too loud and they are eating up space in the mix. The mix has pretty decent balance but the master is a smashed a bit and lacks overall dynamics. I don't think this is a bad first go though. Way to tackle the mix for your band!

    Thank you for the tips my dude!

    Having a listen to it with your words in mind, you're definitely right. I think the master bus on my end could have been a little more delicate, as you stated, it sounds a bit squashed. I Feel like i could have cut leads, rhythms, and bass distortion around 2k where the vocals would have really sat in nicely...Live and learn I guess.

    Thanks again!
