Removed more ‘bad’ low end frequencies from the mix * Delays - Created multiple delays for the track. Used 1/4, 1/2, 1/8 and slap delays to make mix sound more appealing/dance around the headphones * Reverbs - Created both long and short revels for the track specifically as to not disturb the high end or muddy to vocals Master * Altered some frequencies to make the mix sit better in the vocals * Saturated the mid end to make it more full * More Compression * Frequency editing * More de essing to eliminate harsh vocals * High End - Mastered the high end by isolating the high frequencies and using compression and limiters to make the vocal tear through the mix * Used a delay to let some high vocals ‘dance’ at high frequencies.
