Week 3: mixes
The ‘Creative’ Mix – I decided to go living-room, unplugged (mostly), minimalist. Since most of the accompaniment is driven around the feel of the drums, I decided to pull them out completely. I nearly went with just the Piano and Vox alone, but felt it was just a bit too empty, so there are a couple other instruments there (greatly subdued).
Week 4: Mix from stems
This is basically the same feel I was going for in the ‘Creative’ mix last week, but this time I got to build the FX to match from nice, dry stems. Nothing dramatic, just tried to find a reverb that would feel like a smaller setting, used filters/EQ and wet/dry mix on the reverb to move the quieter instruments to the back, and took out some mids from the piano so that it didn’t crowd the vocals as much.
