This week I was focusing on mixing, and drums. I spent awhile tuning kicks, and snares, and hi hats, then removing those hi hats in favor of a shaker, and then bringing some hi hats back, and then putting some bass in to match the kicks, and then re-arranging all the kicks around the bass... For the melody side of things, I ended up pulling out a sampler instrument I had built in the past and re-using it, though it only had like 3 sounds in it I really cared for. It feels slightly lacking to me in some parts, but ultimately I couldn't find anything that I thought fit in well enough to add. Ultimately though I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. any feedback on mix is welcome!

And all three of those samples are pulling their weight. I suppose for next time you can use all the drums.

Loving this mix.  Shaker is crisp, kick is boomy, bass sits around but not in the kick drum space, piano fills out the middle.  DELICIOUS.

The time spent tuning really paid off.

I would say this track is......AHHSUM..............x

This mux is very good! After listening on headphones. i was getting mean and listened over the tiny speakers of my tablet... Sounds also nice there! Something i never accomplish for my mixes...
Chops are also cool! This definitly needs someone who raps!

thanks! i do enjoy the other parts of a drumset, but rarely get to using them. maybe i'll work some drum fills in to one of these upcoming weeks.

thanks! I am glad to hear that this sounded ok even on your tablet speakers! I didn't really put a lot of effort in to that specifically, but I do go between my car/headphones quite a bit to try to get some variety. i don't really have the right space for monitors to get a proper listening area setup so i feel like i'm always grasping at straws for balance. I really wish i had some friends who rap though...
