PROCUCER’S PICK

 

The producer for this song was not available to vote this time around.

 

HOUSE PICK

 

My choices were…

#1 Zsummerill1176

Killer mix!  The FX were absolutelygreat and the tonal balance was really dialled in!  For my tastes, I would have asked for slightly less of that stereo vocal delay….it was a GREAT FX choice but I found it tickled my ear a few too many times over the course of the song.  That being said it did keep a somewhat sparse arrangement interesting.  Amazing mix Zach!

#2 AI Mixing Bot

I loved this mix.  It felt really warm,  yet present at the same time.  To my ear this mix had the best overall balance and tonal balance…I almost picked it first, but eventually the creative touches in Zach’s mix won me over.   Awesome mix!

#3 thyro.alfaro@gmail.com

Man, there are too many good mixes to choose from and this was no exception!  It was interesting how similar the FX choices were in this mix compared to the top mix.  What can I say here, this mix was great in many ways and a very worthy #2!  For my tastes it was just a tad harsh in the midrange.  BUT, this mix slammed!

 

THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR TAKING PART!  SEE YOU NEXT MONTH!
