Thanks @ColdRoomStudio, @Jon-Jon, @ingolee and @Wicked for the feedback! It’s interesting to hear the varying opinions on the drums, etc…
I played all the drums - and I edited all the drums because I’m not a good drummer. My room. My kit. My mics. No samples.
I’m probably guilty of over-editing the drums. I work with a lot of harder-genre stuff and those bands tend to want the drums pretty tight to the grid. My tolerance for what sort of swing bothers me is tighter than is probably appropriate for this genre. That might have squeezed some life out of it.
Here’s the finished version (I think I’m done messing with it now): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0Bzugr8cD5X_MQ280QTZkTTJKT0k
I tried to address the vocal resonance, the acoustic low end, the low end in the drum rooms, the drums being a touch too loud (I just couldn’t bring 'em down much…I’m a sucker for loud drums!), and automated some vocals that felt like they were getting a touch buried. I still don’t enunciate well so I can’t help that one, Jon-Jon! “…make it to the light somehow.”
Thanks again for the help and the super kind words, all!
