2nd Single Made on Ableton (& big challenges)

Post by luckykat » Sun Feb 21, 2021 6:53 pm

Hey Ableton family,
I released my 2nd single 'Musical Chairs' which I made using Ableton. Check it out:

The biggest challenge I encountered was getting the vocal narration to sit in the mix as the synths & crescendo made the track much louder.
- Any suggestions on how I can make the vocals cut through a busy song?
- Anything that would improve the mix?

Thanks,
Dave

I have a feeling the music will stop at 3 minutes and 6 seconds.

Ha! Love that comment. I feel it might stop before 3mins 6secs :wink:
Thoughts on track? What can improve from a production standpoint?

The most important thing is to have a point of view and be confident. There is a current fad of mixing everything as loud as possible. That wasn't true 20 years ago, it won't be true 20 years from now. Having your own unique point of view helps to keep your music from sounding dated. Even when it comes to mixing. Just, be yourself.
