Hey Bill… there you are. I wondered where you’d been hiding :slight_smile:

Very nice job on the mix. Smooth sound. Which parts did you play?

Nice string patch and bgv’s. I like the reverb on them.

Nit picking…

I listened on my PC speakers and then on my nearfields in my studio.

For me, it’s a bit too “wide”. The guitars… are they hard-panned left and right? My first reaction was that the ld vox was a bit distant, but I think it’s just that the guitars sound like the’re in a different room to the rest. There seemed to be a gap between the guitars and the vox? Seemed more obvious later in the song. Maybe I was listening to closely. Ditto the crash cymbals. Too wide? Or maybe a bit too loud?I found them a bit distracting.

All in all a great job Bill. Well done.

Hey Mark! Great to hear from ya! Thanks for the critque!
Yea, I had the guitars panned very hard! (Still learning)
F-jam did drums. He gave me a premixed drum track. I really didn’t wanna attempt mixing drums too! :D Had my hands full with everything else.
I did 4 guitars and bass. (2 acoustic, 2 elect, and bass)
Larsalt from Germany did all vox and all keys. He submitted a lead vocal track and a mixed backup vocal track. He also gave me a keyboard strings track and an organ track.

I recorded my acoustic guitar tracks with a fruity loops track
and posted the basic structure. Lars came back with a song
idea. So we built it from there. These were a couple of great
guys to work with. This is actually my first completed collab
that I originated and mixed. I used my Zoom recorder to track my guitars and did the mix in N-track. I have terrible latency
issues when recording thru my Sound Blaster Live.(even after all the tweaks you gave me.)

Just having fun! :D

Later Bro…

God Bless

Nice uplifting tune.

Shows you can still write a good tune with E and A chords.
