the vocals are a little "pitchy." i've never taken formal lessons in

Ain't bad at all, you're keeping a very constant note, no wavering...only

They really want to do that. All the presets I've ever tried in most
mastering tools are set so that you really will hear what they do...way
overdone. It's a bitch to use 'em, better make several trial runs and have
some listens to it in a car, at friend's sound system...even band PA is
possible. And when you find good settings for exciters etc. save them so you
have somewhere to start the next time. Can't trust them ears when you do
mixing for a prolonged period.
pretty bright. that's an easy fix. if i just play with that plug in
a little it should tame it a little. i am also using the bbe sonic
maximizer. it sounds great on an acoustic guitar track, but its not
as good on the overall mix. i'll try turning that back a little too.

The best tools to master a coherent demo track, for me, are a multiband
compressor which you can use to tame the bass end nice and tight and limit
the highs such as cymbals, or bring up some guitar punch, but leave the
overall sounds untouched. That and a master limiter such as Ultramaximiser
or maybe Magneto are usually enough. Sometimes it's good to add 2-3% of
reverb to tie the whole together as well, and perhaps some sort of harmonic
exciter if the mics or other original material lacks extreme high ends. But
I try to keep excitation and such to a reasonable level, and especially
stereo enhancement is something that must be carefully used. It can make it
sound really weird in some systems.

the weak point.
few good days, remix/master it and see if you can get an autotune on it, and
it'll be just as good as any similar stuff on the radio.
