I really like this. I think this is better than you taylor swift mashup that you did with midnight city. I think that the mental is kind of over powering the vocals a little bit.

Thank you! Ironically, I thought of my Swift/M83 mashup as well, and I prefer this one to it too! I did a lot to make sure the vocals evened out, but which parts do you think the instrumental overpowers it?

Nice mashup, Logan. If there is any spot where the vocals are overpowered by the instrumental (and I'm not so sure there are any) it would be the first few seconds of the two verses. I'm comfortable with it as it is.

BTW, now that they've been revealed, I see that your contest mashup for round 2 of LiteRecords was one of my favorites. Are we going to see that one posted here? I hope so.

This is an excellent combo.

A while ago for me the M83 instrumental might have elicited a mutter of "not this one again," but enough time has passed to make it tolerable.

The verses sound great. I'm no coldplay fan by any means, but the music's progession and percussion really bring Chris Martin to life (not an easy feat IMO).

I'm going to reserve judgement on the choruses. I don't think the music overpowers the vocal, but there seems to be some work needed on the overall levels. I might be wrong but it seems the music could come down 1db, and if that makes the vocal too loud then the vocal would need the same treatment, or maybe 0.5db.

I'll wait to see if Those With The Golden Ears agree. :1wink:

As others have obviously mentioned the instrumental does overpower the vocals a little bit but besides that it's a damn good mix great job!

Nice finding Logan, I like it :1cheesy:
I think the vocals power level is good, the issue here is with the vocals mid range freq. and maybe some of the low end.
For a start, I think some EQ adjustment at 386Hz lowered something between -3dB ~ -5dB will fix it.

Overall, I enjoy it much :1wink:

Great mash Logan. :1cool:

The levels are fine imo. There is a brief masking happening at the first few words of the verse 1 and 2 around the FQ SMASH mentioned but is really brief.

I'm guessing what happening here is you're getting feedback for different listening devices. Speakers versus head phones versus phone speaker. The extreme width of these vocals will change people level perspectives drastically depending on the device they hear this on.

I'm on headphones right now and it's sound pretty dang good. :1grin:

Just noticed this was frontpaged! Thank you Happy Cat for putting it up there! The volumes in the intros are really subjective, since I did play around with them until they sounded just about right with my headphones. Any higher wouldn't been too much (at least to my hearing) but I'm glad this got the recognition I felt it deserved!
