*UPDATED 4/23/17*

*Hey guys! I updated this again, and removed the distorted vocals, tweaked some levels and gave more click to the kick. I've also added a 2nd version where I've removed the profanity...if that sort of thing bothers you.*

Regardless if you like Trump or not, we have a tune weíre about to give away, and Iíd love some feedback on overall mix balance and if it sounds like the low end is ok.

Iím not looking for a political conversation, this is all about the mix.

Any help or feedback is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!


Since nobody can understand the words, here they are in case you wanted some light reading... Smile

I canít believe, all the people that voted for trump
Heís full of shit, man itís all made up.
Heís sittin, getting fat, praying, watching Faux News
Propaganda TV, white supremacist views.

Too damn stubborn, to See through the lies
Got a snake-oil peddler with Hitlerís eyes.
Fuck his little hands, the little shitís insecure
Steve Bannonís doling out his new world cure

F trump (F trump)
Weíre millions strong
Not buying that shit theyíre passing along
F trump (F trump)
Got the brains on our side
Hate is just a place where the weak ones hide


A room full billionaires donít know we need
Changing all the policies to suit their own greed.
You really think his picks gonna give fat fuck
I got a bridge Iíd like to sell you, man, letís take a walk

Orange little bitch is gonna build a big wall
He saaaaays Mexicoís gonna pay for it all
He must be smoking crack, taking us for a ride
A fifty dollar ladder gonna get you to the other side

F trump (F trump)
Weíre millions strong
Not buying that shit theyíre passing along
F trump (F trump)
Got the brains on our side
Hate is just a place where the weak ones hide


Russian mother fucker / taking us for a sucker
Canít wait to see the video tape
Banning all the Muslims / stuck. in line at customs
Itís gonna be a red letter day


Psychopaths in Congress passing all of their bills
Religious right wingers controlling the hill
The good people fucked while Trump just gloats
The church owns us now cuz didn't vote

F trump (F trump)
Weíre millions strong
Not buying that shit theyíre passing along
F trump (F trump)
Got the brains on our side
Hate is just a place where the weak ones hide

I wish you'd cut some hi-mids from that acoustic guitar so I could hear the lyrics better. Everything has a sibilant quality that I don't enjoy, but that could be a taste thing. But definitely Fuck Trump. I've written the same song in my head about 100 times.

Catchy tune.

Regarding the mix: good overall. I dig the balance, though the left acoustic guitar is a bit out on its own. I'd probably move other elements between it and center to fill that space a bit more. Maybe a reverb/delay return panned there or something?

Also the upper bass is a bit muddy, like 300-400Hz ish. You could get that in mastering maybe. EDIT: on second listen, I'm pretty sure this mud is coming from the bass track. Maybe a cut in that freq range on the bass, and maybe a bit more higher up, 1kish, to bring it out a bit more to compensate?

A couple of sort of harsh-ish frequencies in there, higher up in the midrange. You could probably also get those in mastering too.

You should play in the band that vvv's friend is trying to start.

Oh yeah, mixing songs is good.

Hey guys!

I did take some of your suggestions into consideration and Iím updating the track.

Do you guys think the track is too sibilant? I can de-ess or soften it up a bit.

I pulled tried to pull out a little mud and cut a bit of the high-end that I feel was crunching a bit.

This version any better?

Hey guys!

Thanks for the feedback. As mentioned in my initial post above, I did some fairly major tweaking, including...removed the distorted vocals, tweaked some levels and gave more click to the kick. I've also added a 2nd version where I've removed the profanity...if that sort of thing bothers you.

If you get a chance, check it out and let me know if you think these edits have improved it at all

Thanks!
Tait
