Nearly 90 views and not a single comment. Is something wrong with this one that I'm unaware of? :1shocked:

Nothing wrong that I can think of. Sounds like an original to me. Those 80s vocals work suprisingly well with the modern house instrumental. Nice work creating the instrumental, it sounded perfectly natural. The only thing that bothered me was that it sounded a bit over compressed. Especially noticable in the loud parts.
Anyway, great job! This will probably get FP'd :1cool:

I like the sound of that instrumental mix and you did good with the rework, but I'm having a hard time with the pella quality :1undecided:

TheTable mentioned it might be over-compressed, well it might be that or might be also "drowning" with too much reverb on the wet side. Apparently, it's not your fault since it sounds like the original "Stand Back" song was produced that way.

If it's a reverb issue, the only solution I can think of is to convert the pella into mono and re-engineer it into a stereo version with a suitable plugin or with the duplication approach, not sure if it will work :1embarassed:

I must confess that in my haste to get this one out the door I rushed the mastering. :1embarassed:

Thank you for your insightful comments. The re-mastered Version 2 is up! :1smiley:

Unfortunately I just think things are that quiet around here at the moment. Nothing wrong with this one for me.

You'll need to EQ the instrumental out of the way a dB or 2. I'm guessing the vocal range is around 900-1100 Hz. A better solution would be to Multiband that range with the vocals as a side chain if you want it to sound more transparent. But a simple EQ'ing my help make room for those vocals quickly.

I didn't really notice much of a difference at 2dB, so I bumped the notch to 4dB with a Q of 3.

Version 3 is up. :1smiley:
