Hey !
Here is th V2 :
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1r_Onse ... sp=sharing

Without effect on the master channel ^^

Less loud ! No more saturation and the bass drops go much better!
I find the balance between the instruments not bad, the mix seems ​​clearer.

On the other hand, I have the impression that the trebbles have increased quite a bit. And to my ear, it's more "aggressive" and a bit tiring to listen to.
The middles also increased a little, and the bass decreased very little.

Basically, compared to the initial mix, I would have lowered the bass, increased the middles and left the trebbles as they are. As it stands, I find the V2 still unbalanced.

The second one seems better to me. There's less distortion and the kick and snare are better balanced. The sound feels a bit more open and less fatiguing to my ears. It also gives the mastering engineer something better to work from.

Ouch! That’s fierce - but it may be genre-appropriate.

Lots of sharp high frequencies.

There is a lot of energy in the octaves either side of 4k. Looking at an analyser there's a lot more than I usually see, but as stated before, that's not my genre.
It's a bit overdone to me and my instinct is to tame that region with a broad EQ cut.
It also seems a little bit light in the real bottom end, but I'm a sucker for overdoing the bass so maybe ignore me on that one! ;)

Here is the V3 !
- with vocals :

- without vocals :
https://drive.google.com/file/d/117XK36 ... sp=sharing

It's much more balanced, the highs are less aggressive.

On the other hand, the level is always loud, because it reaches 0 db sometimes.

But for the instrument part, I think we are really in the right direction.

On the other hand, we find that the vocals sound weird, as if they were emptied of a bit of their substance. It's pretty hard to describe.

Here is the V5 :

I think it will be the final mix.
What do you think?
