The keys and timing are all in order. The vocals sound like they are not in the same space as the instrumental. Can you find effects like reverb and delay, flange or chorus and EQ that may be able to place the vocal into the depths and richness of the instrumental? Right now the dry rock re-amped style vocals just need some tweaking imho :1smiley: See what others think as well.

The pairing here is top-notch. And as much as I'd hate to see the Killer's acapella altered (their sound is what makes them so special) I think that HCD is correct in suggesting you tinker with the vocals to get them to match the instrumental better. Definitely want to be able to hear them side-by-side so don't get rid of version 1 when you make version 2.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I originally did have more reverb than you can hear in V1 but I reduced it like satis5d says to try and keep their unique sound.

I'll have a crack at altering it later when I open up the project again.

Nice pairing, Jamie :1cool:
Agree with the others, the vocals needs more reverb/delay to fit in better, fix that and you got my vote :1wink:
