I liked #1, it sounded more like a 'mix' to me.  #2 sounded like a rough mix in comparison.

Both sound good and I like the vibe of the music

I'm going with #2. The vocals are a lot more clear and direct.

I would prefer #1 with #2's vocal sound.

tell me which version you like and why.

version 1

version 2




#1:  Better vibe, more ambient pretty dark overall tone on my in ears.  Mix feels like it's missing something at about 3 o'clock.  Vocals are a bit too obscured by the darkness of the effects, or perhaps the doubling delay time is a bit long.  A little too much electric tones volume wise.

#2:  Same comment on the electric tones, like the fade a lot.  The vocals, while much clearer, don't quite match the ambience of the overall track.

I'd probably pick mix one, but dry up/move up the vocals slightly.

Maybe the second.  To much revrb on the first one.

The first rythm guitar is an electric guitar umplugged and recorded with a mic?
I really don't like this for this song. If it is an acoustic guitar it sound to poor to me in both mixes.


I think that a more Beatles kind of mix will be better. Less reverb, guitars more present, voices more dry and some extreme panning will help the song.


I Like the sound of the plugged electric guitar that appear later.

I like #1 better, but I wish the vocals were as intelligible as in #2.  The vocal dynamics in #1 are really nice, but parts get lost.  #1 comes off as more melancholy for whatever reason and I think that's an important quality for this song.  And the drum fade-in on #2 seems... non-genuine (?)...  like a production trick rather than a compositional device.

What a gorgeous tune, by the way.

Even though version 1's reverb to me sounds a bit heavy on the bottom, i'd go with this version.

Isn't a fade technically always a production desicion (trick, if you will)? The long just-drums intro would definitely lend itself to a fade-in...

i just thought it would be interesting to see what you guys thought.  i didn't really have any hidden motivation.

i just thought it would be fun to see who picked which version and why.

i prefer version 1 BTW.

it makes me think of a band sound checking in a small theater before a show.  sorta imtimate in feel, but open in sound.
