There is value in non perfection. Bottom line, its fire. Nuff Said.

this is good
Murdabeat 7th Jan 2020 06:49 - 4 years ago
Sounds great. If I may. Add a bit of reverb. on the voice and EQ2. The reversed bell loop sounds good. I would have added a melody on it to add some contrast in between. Other then that sounds great!

To me, the mids are a bit too much, but hey, it's on the level that its a matter of feeling, since you checked all the boxes of the "steps to sound good". It can happen, sometimes its impossible to please people. This is a solid track !

Достойная работа!

Hi every producer ,tone master have there own sound that they want mix is good
(Just to me ) vocals need some magic and bottom end needs dropping but thats
Just me over all good job well done
BCVProductions 16th Oct 2019 16:36 - 4 years ago
Just needs some eq tweak bc the compression is hyping the high mids which will cause ear fatigue. Overall I think it's really good. It's the kind of eq problems I have when I spend too much time in one long session. Maybe the vocals could be just a tiny bit louder or sidechained in the mix for some extra clarity. I enjoy the distortion in the kicks and the pumping. Daf.

Look, it is good.

this mix and mastering sounds great
thechockehold 14th Oct 2019 21:51 - 4 years ago
Love your work on fem voc, but there is some bass issues. But it is great overal.
DijamMusic 13th Oct 2019 15:54 - 4 years ago
It was an improvement.
DijamMusic 13th Oct 2019 13:45 - 4 years ago
The mix seems to me balanced and coherent.
However, if you really what us to see the deferent that your mixing and mastering did to this track in my view you should upload the original for us to compare.
Sounded good though.
Well Done.

Dear friend, the mix seems to me balanced, the vocal parts sound well defined and the whole I like. Here and there are some distortions that tend to dirty the sound a little. For this reason you might think about working on the mix keeping the volumes lower. To make listening more enjoyable, you could also intervene on the equalization by slightly cutting out some strategic frequencies (100 hz, 440 hz, 1000 hz) and improving the impact and depth of the drumming, slightly enhancing 60 hz and 300 hz. I would also give a slight boost on the 2000 hz, 8000 hz and 15,000 hz. These are of course only my personal opinions. Best wishes
Stretchfyb 10th Oct 2019 02:48 - 4 years ago
Fire overall! Sounds a little distorted at some points but besides that it's very close to perfect
LunnchBoxx 8th Oct 2019 05:30 - 4 years ago
I'm really digging this one for me it's well mix I'm really catch on that hook.
elijahbcrouch 8th Oct 2019 04:41 - 4 years ago
plus, once the mix and master is sounding a BIT better, I would release it. I mean its not like Kayari has a ton of followers, it fine. I mean I was talking to a producer who has produced for the likes of Mariah Carey, Carrie Underwood, Michael Jackson and more, and he has released demos before that have gone on to become billboard hits. Just because its not perfect doesn't mean its not good. So IMO I would release it
elijahbcrouch 8th Oct 2019 04:37 - 4 years ago
really good, only thing I would change is create an eq curve to take out around 5k on the hi hat eq its kinda harsh, also maybe give a little more punch in the snare by boosting higher frequencies but not letting them go past 3k. and maybe give some drive on the bass (but keep it at the same volume level). the kick needs a punch around 300 but also it is clipping so that will take some working out. On to the master. It is decent, but you have some digital clipping which is probably caused by the kick and too much gain on certain instruments. That can also be fixed by adding either a brick wall limiter, or a soft compressor (by ear see what sounds good) also another compressor wouldn't be a bad idea. If it still clips a bit with the kick dont worry too much it is pretty natural and pop/hip hop. Overall she did OK.
Frostdog 7th Oct 2019 18:08 - 4 years ago
It is awesome!!
Grozzou 7th Oct 2019 09:20 - 4 years ago
Pretty awesome, still a bit saturated on the kick for me, but still a banger, wp mate
felixamodeo 6th Oct 2019 18:25 - 4 years ago
the 3k to 8k region sounds harsh, I believe its the hihat. The beat can be pushed back slightly because it is overpowering and clashing with the vocal. Other then that, I can maybe suggest more stereo width to the vocal in the high range to really make it sparkle through and give more clarity. Great work otherwise. Love the vocal fx and processing you did.
Aldo1b 6th Oct 2019 18:14 - 4 years ago
The vocal mastering on the girl is perfect in my opinion.
LeinadMolahs 5th Oct 2019 13:24 - 4 years ago
Not the best mix and mastering ever but it feels worst when you see the bitterness on the post and in the way you replied the artist.... bro.. nobody is obligated to like your work, That's normal, Just move on to find artists that appreciate your style.

iamarty 4th Oct 2019 13:47 - 4 years ago
and a little more on the concept that i was talking about with a soft clipper, sidechain works wonders too :)

often times, distortion from a kick can be handled quite well by just sidechaining the vsts/loops behind the main beat (i.e the kick, hihats, and snare) :)

do that and you shouldnt have any distortion or in this case "clipping" on the master channel anymore :)

hope this helps :)
cartelscrum replied 4th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago
tnk you bro 100000000 times
iamarty 4th Oct 2019 13:41 - 4 years ago
i think im going to have to side with the other guy that said that you leaned hard on the master gain. but really in truly that doesnt matter when were talking about this genre. because to be completely honest, its at commercial loudness. which is all that matters :)

when it comes to this genre, there really isnt a right way to mix and master and most of the time, throw a compressor and a soft clipper on the master and youre fine :)

if youre worried about a mix and master, you shouldnt be. because its all about the feeling and vibe of the track

if everything vibes well and the feeling is good, you're fine

youd be really surprised to know how many professional tracks come like this as well. the clipping is coming from a kick, which is normal. if your kick is a hard hitting, distorted kick, you should EXPECT to have some clipping in the master. its natural because the distorted frequencies make other frequencies distorted as well. as i said, distortion is natural when dealing with a distorted kick

the best advise someone could ever give you with this genre is this: when ever you have a distorted kick, put a soft clipper on the mixer track of that kick. that way, when it comes time for the final product, there will be less distortion with the master channel :)

hope you have a wonderful day love :)

as far as what you were

Hi guys Kayari here, just wanted to say that I greatly appreciate Cartel's work,he did a great job. Sadly we had some different views on certain aspects to the song, and Id rather not release a song I'm not a 100% happy with it. My version is unedited and obviously not ready. I'll be releasing the mixed and mastered version soon, so Stay tuned if you're interested. Thank you so much for taking the time to listen
cartelscrum replied 4th Oct 2019 - 4 years ago

vinnybee 3rd Oct 2019 07:53 - 4 years ago
I think it sounds great man! I'd give it a 8 outta 10. Her vocals could be a bit louder, and a little more of that low end cut out. Other than that, DOPE!

I wish this site would let me use emojis cause my whole comment would just be fire emojis. This is AWESOME!!
The mix already seems so well done, along with the master. I couldn’t imagine what more you guys would want to do with this!!
If interested, I’d love to potentially collab in the future!

Description : This song is my first attempt at trap(?) and was made ENTIRELY with Looperman loops in honor of this awesome site and also to demonstrate what you can do with Looperman loops :P. Compiled, edited/processed, mixed and roughly mastered in about 16 hours. I am collaborating with a Looperman rapper right now who will lay some verses on this and I will do the hook. In other words this is not a finished product just yet, but wanted y'alls opinions on it.

I was attempting to create a high-energy trap(?) beat with a blend of wubbiness. Let me know what you think.
SPECIAL THANKS to MODUSMusic (, Spivkurl (, danke (, Eli426 - (, 7venth12 (,smokyleopard (, UltraCryptik ( and Megapaul ( and xXSniperXx ( There was one more guy who had the rise loop that I used but I couldn't find him anywhere when I went back to search for him. Anyhoo, thanks to him too :P

I will update this when the vocals get laid on the track and I remix/remaster it. Cheers!

Description : Step 1) Make a really repetitive beat (No Distortion).

Step 2) Make sure there's a long segment at the end of the beat of JUST THE BEAT because the actual song will only be like a min and 40 secs.

Step 3) For the "distortion", don't actually distort the beat. Most people think you distort the 808 to get the the XXXTENTACION sound, but that's wrong. Make sure the beat is PROPERLY mixed/mastered and THEN boost the bass frequencies until you reach your desired amount of distortion.
