Hello Mr OneLove Sir, Welcome aboard the SS Mashstix, I shall be your guide for the duration of your stay, I hope you have a pleasant trip. :D

Track one - Other than the odd vocal overlay that i didnt like (1:14 for example) i found it very enjoyable :)
I'm all for vocal interplay but overlaying for the sake of it seams pointless, think less is more when it comes to giving an overall professional feel :)

Track two - Who doesn't like a Beasties Mashup?? Good choice of sources... sounds a bit flat... needs EQing but nice mash!! :)

Track three - Fit's well but your sources bored me... not my thing... but again well made :)

It's good to have you on board :D

Thanks guys- I think I'll fit right in with the no pants rule :lol:

Thanks also for the feedback lloyd- I can see what you're saying with the wynter gordon parts during KP's verses. I debated taking it out but I liked the harmonic overlay of it slowly fading and it seemed to be at least moderately relevant vocal wise to what KP was saying.

The beastie mash was a pain in the butt to master.. did you mean the backing felt flat? I actually took a lot of bass out and (thought I had) evened out the mids/highs respectively. There was no room for vocals in the original so it's quite possible I messed something up in the process. The acapella I did end up EQ'ing to take a bit of mids and highs out of though (especially highs on the chorus). Before that it didn't seem to sit naturally in the mix to me.

I figured the MGMT mash wouldn't be a huge hit with the site but I'm glad nothing sounds wrong from a technical standpoint. Thanks again for taking the time to listen and give feedback mate- I'm always trying to get better

Cheers!

I think you may well have answered your own question there :D

Others may have a different view (I'm thinking Dylan would be the guy to ask) but for me, if vocals are being lost in the mix, I would focus my attention on EQing the vox, not trying to find some free bandwidth in the instrumental... thoughts anyone...?

Yeah I'd be pretty interested to hear some more opinions on this... I haven't been doing this is a serious manner for very long and I'm a crackhead about constantly trying to increase my production value :ugeek:

I ran the demo by Dylan a while ago (he's been helping me get used to mastering properly ;) ) and his recommendation was to kill more of the bass than I had already done because it still sounded a bit muddy on that track.

Would love to hear more thoughts on that though from the community.. lots of talented guys here who could lead me in the right direction!
