New hip hop track- work in progress
 
Working to improve my mixing skills. Vocals have proven the most challenging. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I typically do three tracks- main vocal, reverb track and a dub. This time around i went with main vocal track with Compressor and vocal channel dynamics, the dub has a compressor and unison effect and is just a copy of the main vocal. The reverb track is also a copy with a reverb effect. Any suggestions?

You got a nice oldschool flow man. The whole track sounds kinda oldschool. I think you should look out for some beats coss i get the feeling you are doing it all yourself and the beatmaking thing isn´t really working. Get a beat and do your thing man. Layer your vox and put a bit more agression into it :D

Good work bro. Flow is nice and beat is good. Only suggestion I have is that the beat could have used a litlle bassline maybe, but overall not bad at all. Im digging the real hiphop sounds, def my style check out my work also, we share similar ears.

I like the beat, simple, straigth, punchy :) maybe the bassdrum could use some bassadd, but anyways ;)

I like it. It reminds me a bit of Illogic and or Alias.

Are you using the master bus compressor? It sounds like your kick drum is triggering a master compressor and it muffles your vocals when it hits. Sounds like you might need a little de-essing. If you do add a bass, make sure to sidechain it from the kick signal, or it will get way too muddy.

I disagree with 909. Keep making your own beats. DIY. You'll enjoy it more. I like your Fall into Place song.

Yeah i do like it. It's very oldschool but i miss something in it. Maybe some more dirt and background sounds to fill it up a bit. What i really meant was his rapping is great and i feel the beat isn't doing it alot of justice just yet :)

we need more beats that like this man. I just like to hear something different from what everyone else is doing.

I like this product you have here and I see where you going with it. Kinda laid back with an old school flava. MAybe could be a bit more agressive tho. PEACE!!
