    Hello audio lovers,

    I have been moved to France from Austria for 6-7 months and did not get to work on my music as much as I was hoping for.
    How ever, since 2 weeks I have found some working rythm and this one is the first track I almost got finished. Did a lot of the mixing on headgear so I will have to do that properly the next days, but I am already quite satisfied with the result and wanted to share it with you.
    Looking forward to hear some opinions on the music and my mixing. Advises and hints are very welcome.

    The lyrics could be translated like:

    Some things, little things, some beautiful little things
    make only fun in darkness (2x)
    some folks looks for greatness, in the wide, beautiful world
    but I am only looking for littleness, which you and I care about

    forget about the day and close the door
    turn off the light and find gentle quiet

    the sweet little, only for the two of us
    your silky dress - beauty, what are you beautiful
    I want to to feel you, seduce you full of relish
    I want to see you in the dark

    because...
    Some things, little things, some beautiful little things
    make only fun in darkness (2x)

    _____________

    Take care guys

    It was good. Can't really give you much technical advice. Keep it up

    I like how you do the the voicing. Reminds me a great movie (Ratatouille).

    So far so good and everything sounds all in a row. I like the vocal sound that you're getting, really nice and smooth highs as if you are using a ribbon mic and a pre/compressor with lots of color. What are you using on your vocal chain?

    Thanks a lot for your nice responses guys. Makes me happy!

    It is actually an AKG C414 XLII which goes direct into a really old M-audio fast track ultra.
    For mixing the vocal I have used: Fabfilter Deesser -> Arturia 1973 pre -> Lindell TE-100 -> Fab Pro C2.
    Also as sends Ive de-essed the Reverb quite a lot and I have two sends added, one with a lot Air by using Te-100 again with +12db 6,5k up (de-essed...), and one with the Arturia V76-pre adding gentle some hard saturation.

    Hope this explains it a bit. Let me know if you want to know more.

    @Karlsplatz .. Thanks. It must be the V76 adding the nice color. It doesn't sound modern, but in a good way. In the early 90's I used an AKG 414EB with the brass capsule that was my all time favorite on my voice. What you're doing is reminiscent of what I was getting back then...I like it.
