We need your ears for just a second......(Vocal Mixing)

Posted on

Member Since: Jan 19, 2005

Me and my cousin do some Hip Hop production here in Northern California and these forums provide some great tips for us. We are still only scratching the surface of tracking and mixing but we have come a long way in just a couple of years of messing around. Anyways we are working on a new track and I would really appreciate any input on how we can improve the mix. The song is called "Sneak Peek" and you can check it out here:


Since the streaming audio quality sucks I put it up for download so you can hear it better. My ears are getting a little burnt out on it so take a quick listen and let me know whats up....

Also, there is explicit lyrics in it, so if you are offended by that, please don't check it out.

everything in the mix sounds very veyr very good to me, the only thing id say is that the part when the guy with the lower voice comes in (2nd verse??) is a little to quite. id make it just a tad louder, it was hard for me to make out what he was saying.

other then that, sounds supurb. very very good job, My girl friend used to live in chico.

Well, I had a quick listen. Although its not my main genre to critique I have to admit I like your beats, as did my son. It sounds now like you have the vocals under control pretty well. I will defintately give it another listen a bit louder this weekend though, as I had to listen at a moderate level tonight. But from the quick listen tonight it soud very good. And the production is really well done as well.
