Soul Of Seun - Capitulate ( Dark/Atmospheric 140)

Post by Soul_Of_Seun » Mon Mar 24, 2014 6:58 am

Update Okay, I took the recommended advice, went for a second mixdown and tried to get more clarity through EQ. Does this work better?

as sound designs goes... I hear frequencies fighting eachother all over. I feel the distortion and reverb have to do with most of this. Some tweaking on the eq'ing and compressing should do the trick.

A lot going on in this tune. Sounds like a lot of your mids are clashing a bit. For a mix down suggestion I'd try panning out the different layered sounds you got going on to give the mix some stereo width. Maybe also side chain compressing them to your snare a bit to let it come out more or notching a bell EQ in the mid range bass where your snare is peaking. Really cool tune tune though I like the atmosphere and its very vibey. Good work.

Thanks for the replies. I wouldn't have caught the clashing frequencies myself which is why I post here.

I tried to eq the various elements a little better as prescribed. Does this sound clearer?

it would sound A LOT cleaner if you decided to pan the hihats/shakers a bit or completely change them? OR try panning that little bit of ride you got there even more and put it louder and get rid of the distortion a bit.. Keep up the good work man! Nice bass.

Very deep intro, like the melody and the sounds used. The drop is nice, love how you are keeping this minimal vibe going. Like the bas FX edits, good LFO and filtering. You have a Virus TI? GREAT TRACK!

Big vibe and nice bass sounds. Could definitely benefit from some panning of the cymbals and percussion sounds. Love that bird sound or whatever it is. Bass patch is a nice mix of gritty and deep

deep tune. Maybe keep it more minimal at first and bring in the reese/mid-range later on. Just a thought, prob more of a personal preference. nice tune.
