First: Guitar chops were great !! I liked the tone ya used and it sounded purty good to me.

2nd: The mix is a lil off to me. I heard guitar drums and a little Organ. Maybe my set up, dunno . . .

3rd: We have some killer Dire Straits Real Tracks in Biab. *If* ya have them, why not use those in the backing? Simply curious is all.

I loved your geetar chops and sound on it. Way to go with the cover tune

Thanks very much Trax. The mix is probably off a little ... I always fine it hard to line up perfectly. I'm using BIAB 2004 ... gotta upgrade one of these days!

My KISS rule for mixdown: Start with Bass and Drums db level and pan settings. Then add in each additional instrument at a time until every piece has its "place" on the stage/room.

Different FX will raise/lower db levels on affected channel. Once my FX are set for each track, and db levels are set, I will add an overall/global equalizer/peak limit if necessary.

Everyone has their own approach and method, but I like to hear the Bass and Drums and make sure they don't get drowned out after everything has kicked in.

Trial and error. Good thing we can save and re-load and try, try again now and then.

Everyone will have their own "ears" when it comes to music. I can hear those chops and they were tasty.

Trax

Nice job. I am listening on laptop speakers so I really can't hear much of the mix but what I hear of the guitar is all good.

Later,
