(!) CVS - Where Is the Boy (Black Eyed Peas vs. Beyonce)

Post Mon Mar 18, 2019 12:23 am

Really nice, CVS!

I am comfortable recommending this, although I still think the mix (and possibly the timing) could be improved. The vocals still seem to drown out the instrumental during the chorus/hook, but the bass is very present throughout. So I wonder if just bringing up some mid and treble frequencies in the instrumental would help bringing out the guitar strums and add some punch to the snare drums. Some of the rapping also seems to drag behind the beat (especially the verse around 1:36) --it’s probably the “flow” and phrasing of the rapper, but I think you could probably help them out by tightening things up a bit.

I'm very close to putting this on the Front Page, but I have one little issue holding me back.
It sounds to me like the vocals at 2:19 and continuing to about 2:29 come in early and stay ahead of the beat.

Other than that, give the whole mix a volume boost and I'm happy with this. Very nice.

Thanks Satis5d, I fixed the timing from 2:19 to about 2:30.
And upped the master volume with 1,1 dB.=, version 8 now in O.P.
