• Hi Thomas,

    Pleasant pop - what was the assignment?


  • Hi Gav

    This is a song for my sonic arts module demonstrating the creating music to a professional quality.



  • Thomas, I have a few suggestions if you don't mind. The song is fine. I think a little post production would help.

    The vocal seems lost in the mix.

    I could use more low end EQ on the bass.

    Is there kick drum? If so, it is normal to have the bass and kick drum play similar rhythms.

    Consider using a different sound on the guitar solo. 

  • Cheers Bob I will have a look at implementing your suggestions. Fairly new to mixing so thanks very much, the feedback is much appreciated!

    College Piece
    This is a song I have recorded for one of my college modules. I have posted it to get feedback that I can include within the project.
  • Very nice pop song. Even if it lacks originality (I listened to this in the 70s) it works well since that need not be a problem for pop songs. I think the contemporary pop makers from my country sound like the English spoken sounded in the 70s, and they are tremendously successful. You have a nice and personal voice but maybe this song could benefit from chorus background singers, just a spontaneous idea. Certainly a good work in this genre.

    All the best,
