Hi everyone,

Here is one of our latest songs we recorded, all tracks created in Biab, and then chopped and edited in Reaper. Uses all bluegrass tracks.

Hold you in the moonlight

I mixed three Vocal tracks from Marg, moved the harmonies around to match the timing of the lead vocal, no pitch editing needed.

Marg and Andrew Lloyd

Nice work....

Just hearing it on this computer, it sounds like the voice is a few dB too loud for the music. I'd back it down and let it set in the musical bed a bit more.

harmonies are sweet.

one thing's for sure..... BiaB certainly excels at BG music. Fiddle sounded really nice.

good modulation.... you tripled up on the harmonies in the modulation.... back one of them down a bit so it doesn't run interference in the form of comb filtering.

All in all,,,,, this is a really good job.

You can find my music at:

Add nothing that adds nothing to the music.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but you can't do both.

Nice, enjoyed the listen. FWIW, if you want this to really
pop like most traditional and modern BG you might
consider adding a mandolin "chop" rhythm, mix it hot,
and add a healthy dose of reverb to it. That really
defines a BG rhythm.

Just two cents worth from an old bluegrasser.

Cool song and production.
