thanks for remixing me. you added some cool delay to the piano in the verses & bridge. i like the effects on the back vox. what did you use? the lead vox is very clear and out front (how did you treat it?) cheers!

First, I thank you for providing such awesome stems to work with.

Now to the answers. :) The answer to pretty much every question is iZotope Ozone 4. It’s an awesome mastering VST.

On the Piano, I used a Sony Delay and then the Piano Ozone preset ‘Brighten and Compress’. I duplicated the piano track and used Ozone again (same settings), but changed the EQ to pump up the bass. I added that track at about 10% volume back to the other full volume track to boost the bass on piano.

On the background vox, I used another Ozone 4 preset (General Purpose Master) and turned on Reverb in Ozone. The reverb is more wet than dry (so you’re hearing mostly the reverb parts). I used a similar set up for most of the backing vocals with slight tweaks in the reverb settings.

On the main vocal, I used another Ozone preset ‘3-Band Master - Warm Mids’. I tweaked this preset a tiny bit.

The one thing you’ll learn about Ozone is that it, depending on the preset, tends to make everything crystal clear and out-in-front. So, you end up having to push things farther back into the mix once you apply Ozone. At first, I thought the main vocal was a bit too up front and tried to push it back. Once I did that, the vocal kind of got buried. I brought it back to the front and realized that’s where it needed to be.

If you get Acid Music Studio 8, let me know and I’ll send you the project file. You’ll still need Ozone 4, though, to hear the sound.

I forgot to mention, you have a very beautiful voice and excellent control. Thank you for sharing your songs here at ccMixter.

Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks again.

Yeah, C, Ozone is a great tool. Since buying Izotope Ozone 3 and then 4 for mastering, we bought Izotope Alloy which works great as lower overhead channel plugin.
