Hi all, Just finished this song a few days ago and posted to SoundCloud. Thought I'd share it here. Any constructive points on the mix most appreciated! https://soundcloud.com/webgab1/getting-late-1

Nicely done!

I liked the mix. Perhaps the reverse cymbal sound at 1:16 is a bit too up-front.

1:30 sounded like the natural end, and at about 1:55 the repeated sax riff started to wear out it's welcome, but at that point you'd started a long fade, so can see the justification there. Perhaps if you'd faded the sax more during the end, it wouldn't have stuck out as much. Just my personal opinion, it's not "wrong" in any real sense.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Very nice. A pleasant listen.

Nicely mixed - the drums, guitar and sax are all at a good level.
I agree with David that the reverse cymbal is a bit too up front - but it is cool - some heavy reverb on it would make even cooler, I think... and set it back in the mix...

WG,
Nice relaxing tune. I agree that rev. cymbals are a little upfront, but that is very minor. Overall, Mixed very well to my ears.

Thank you for posting.
Misha.
