music like this makes money
again, u got pro talent. the highlight dubs need to be ALOT lower. u dont rly even want to hear that you highlighted, its supposed to be more of a feeling. take it down 5-6dB from wherever the main vocals are and add moderate reverb. i love the flange on the beat's vocals, good choice. the more of an ear you develop for mixing on your own time will save you lots of money and if you give it to an audio engineer they can spend more time on spice and less on leveling and compression and all that jazz. if you dont have pro audio software like logic cubase or pro tools then use a simple editor like audacity. its not childsplay but ive had good results with it.. its what i learned on at least. also, i notice you dont use ad libs ("hey"s "what"s and "yeah"s in the background).. is that a prefrence? its not a deal breaker, but it can add some depth. sorry for writing so much but i rip my own music apart until it sounds decent... and then im still not happy with it lol. dont get me wrong its still a 10/10 but there are things that u need to mindful of if you want this to hit the radio.
thanks, yeah i really dont like adlibs too much it gets in the way of what im trying to say. right now this is the really unmixed version, but im liking the work i get done at the current studio got a pretty good bond with the cat. and he dont smoke so we actually get shyt done. i have worked with cubase before and i like the quality it brought out but that studio didnt have a compressor so you really didnt get the whole effect out of it.. i feel you on the critique'n shyt im my biggest critic
I like the quick flowin you're doing on this. The personal lyrics are also a definate plus, keep it real. I thought the vocals just be amped up a bit, sometimes it felt like a few words were covered by the beat.
Keep at it
appreciated, this is the unmixed version, it took this site forever to throw it on, im very critical on myself so i appreciate your view i see the same on it
