Still Got It

Postby DanielAyo » Tue Aug 20, 2013 12:46 am

Hey all, first time doing this, this song is super pop so it maybe not be to everyone's liking..Nevertheless still putting it out there. Mixed entirely using Halion 4 Sounds.

Great song! This is ready for the radio, it is a catchy tune and nice vocals and backing and the mix sits tight. Sounds really professional. Michael.

So what's superpop?..this sounds like a pop song..when does it become super?..
anyway..good song, like the use of vari audio or melodyne or whatever your using and good arrangement though the vox is drowned out here and there but maybe that's what you intended..well done...Kevin

I think of super pop as pop with extra cheese :mrgreen: Thanks for the feedback, I agree on a few occasions the vocal gets drowned out, but sometimes i feel the vocal is overpowering aswell!

Regards,
Daniel

Great track did you do all vocal? The Chrs vocal seems to ok in volume its the verse that needs (lead vocal in verse) that needs to pop out a more. I like the way you've used your effects on voices.

Super pop haha I like it

This certainly is super poppy. This sounds like it would be played in a European disco to much fanfare.

Good job.

Yes I did the vocal, we were hoping to grab a vocalist with a more R'n'B flair but setted with my voice. Thanks for the feedback on the volume, balancing vocals is something I'm trying to improve on.

Daniel
