Thanks Paul - You have your own bulldozer? Well, I’ll be!!! haha, yes I used to have to climb all over big Cat D12s at work.
I’ll check out that vocal/guitar thing you mentioned at 26 secs. I sidechain compressed the main verse guitar to be ducked by the vocal ever so slightly, but it still might need some automation in different spots.
Thank mate -I appreciate the listen and comment.
Not at all, Daniel! I always get a lot of insight from critiques given on these bashing sessions, whether the bash be given by a full on pro, a rank amateur, or anyone else at any stage in between. I know that personally, developing critical listening skills absolutely key to me improving my audio game, so I love to see others really getting finicky & microscopic in their critiques… And if I give it out, you have to be able to take it!
All I noticed was how well the different parts and transitions of the song were well balanced (volume) and well done. Every instrument sat distinctly in its place, and with all that was going on here there was no clashing of space. Simply made this song - which rocks btw so easy to listen to and like. Again another great mix.
Thanks Daniel, I appreciate the kind words - yes there is a lot going on here - I’m glad it sounds clear, because I got to the point where I’d been listening too long and I wasn’t sure any more!
That’s precisely why I need to load up the mix here and get some perspective from you guys, so don’t hold back!
Thanks again for listening and commenting - much appreciated!
