Crossing the Line
This song started as an instrumental track on Kompoz by Bill Babcock with drums by Andrea Spaziale. The song was left untouched for a while. Until Rob Glass added bass. This is my mix and production with my somewhat unsolicited lyrics and vocals.
This mix will be up for live feedback on
Produce like a Pro with the following notes:
Update: After Bobby confirmed my feeling that the vocals were simply too overpowering, I pretty much worked them over completely and decided to thin down the synths to make room. I find it hard to balance these instruments and hesitate to use the mute button too much. However, since this was never meant to allow for vocals, I might be fighting a losing battle. I think I’m slowly getting to where I want it. I could spend even more endless hours on automation, but I might need a bit of distance to it first.
Mixed in Reaper.
Enjoy. And follow me on
SoundCloud, for more demos and mixes in progress.
