I was recently advised that a couple of my submissions sounded over-processed. It has been the same minimal processing I've used for the last several months with the same microphone setup etc and 95%+ of my submissions have been accepted using that same processing setting. Of course, I'm always striving to improve and make sure the vast majority of submissions are accepted, so I'm wondering if removing the processing altogether moving forward will improve the acceptance rate, and/or if there is anything else that I need to address in these recordings that is making it sound over-processed.
The project in question that was flagged as over-processed is the first link to audio below.
The link below is a more recent project where I removed the processing altogether and submitted - which was accepted. Is this the better setting to use moving forward, and is there anything else you could see being necessary to improve acceptance?
