Howdy All,
Originally posted this in the Mixing forum before I realized it should be here, oooops. Here is another that we just got done doing a few months ago. I will probably send these in for professional Mastering but what do you think about the Mix thus far. This one is called Seize the Day.

Maybe it's just me or my speakers, but the synth choir (assume synth choir) seems a mite loud in the overall mix...love the chick vocals though! I do think the backing vocals/synth vocals are overpowering though.

Cool tune though!

Just listened to this. The synth in the intro seems quite loud? I might back this off a few dB and ramp up the guitars. Over all the tonal balance is quite bright and scooped. Not necessarily a bad thing, just lacking a bit of meat for my taste. I wanna feel that snare some more! What kind of stereo bus processing are you using? I can hear the stereo limiter really working in the chorus. I think it might stealing some of the punch from the drums also.

I think the vocal sound a bit thin. The balance of the two vocals in the chorus could use some tweaking. Have you thought about double tracking and hard panning L and R the lower harmony and adjusting it tonally to have a bit more warmth compared to the lead vocal?

Also, I think you could do some interesting vocal delays :0)
