Just recorded this song. Its intended to be released for the summer so don't mind all the talk of beaches and bikinis.

I like the way the mix sounds, however I think the vocals might be a little quiet. I want to know how to get them to stand out but also allows me to hear the beat. Overall the mix is so much quiter then professional songs I have compared it too. The mix has sounded pretty good on all my speakers. Other then noticing the vocals are quiet. I also noticed on one boom box it sounded like the vocals were airy and there was no low end.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Holler when you get it fixed so I can check it out.

Vocals could stand a slight boost. If you need it louder, maximization of the master will probably help you out. Otherwise, mix sounds good. How are you eqing the vocals?

I'm using the EQ in Cubase. What do you suggest as a boost and also can anyone that uses izotope tell me what preset they use for mastering.

I guess what I meant is what frequencies are you boosting and which are you cutting on your vocal track.

I generally cut a few db from 80Hz and below, and boost somewhere between 1200Hz to 1700Hz and maybe a small cut around 500Hz and/or 2100Hz if I think it's warranted.
