Hello everybody

This month I chose the song Eyes, by the Chad Hollister Band. A nice and easy rock tune that I hope you guys are going to enjoy working on (I will at least ).

Remember, this month we are back to only REAPER plugins.

That being said, as always you can download the multitrack from the website or clicking on this link.

Happy mixing!
Dave

Got to watch a live stream of Pipeline working on this last night. Really interesting watching him work his magic. Downside was it really reinforced the "I don't know what I don't know" aspect of all of this.

Of course! Make sure to include everything that doesn't come with a fresh installation of Reaper though (effects and impulses)

Silver!

Congratulations I think your mix was awesome! Very live and exciting to listen to. Please get in touch with me when you have decided on the song for the next month. You can go either on the usual website or other websites if you find anything interesting.

Congratulations to Silver, well done.
Here are my short notes on the mixes:

#1 my mix

#2 mix is a bit narrow and thin

#3 good open mix, i like the bass but maybe there is too much energy in the bottom end

#4 very good mix (only the snare could be a little bit more open sounding)

#5 good mix but needs more low end (kick sounds good, maybe more bass) i missed the mandolin solo

#6 very good mix, i would like the bass a bit more defined


I voted 4-6-3

Thanks everyone for the votes. Amazing, after my first attempt last month scored the wonderful total of zero points - looking forward to mixing the next one.

Yeah that was funny! haha it means you did some serious improvements a bit of a shame that not many people sent their own mix though. Must be the summer vibe coming
