Been doing all fadein/outs on parts using RB.
Only using Audacity to convert to MP3 and also add meta data

PG Dynamics gain 3, default rest.
Sonitus Multiband using Medium Master preset.
Used Stereo expander with full presets.
Also used K-meter for final mix levels along with RB output meter.
Used RB mixer for bit of reduction in level for master output.

I downloaded a screen capture Demo from SnapIt.
Video finalized 11-11-2012.
If you click the 720p will be best for viewing.

BUT real reason was a response that puffed me up......
then the last line......ROFLMAO... sales gimmick I guess.

It's November. That fits.
Nice mix.
Don't bother about the video comment.
Of course it's a sales gimmick.

Here are my thoughts listening through it for the first time:

With headphones on, the first thing I noticed was the stereo separation. Not a bad thing, just a bit of surprise. Perhaps a touch loud.

Once the song started, it was smooth sailing. Nice.

Without peeking, I'd guess the leads were live rather than RealTracks. (Peeking shows me wrong, so kudos for being freaking awesome).

When the guitar came in after the piano, it sounded a bit quiet in comparison.

Piano in the second time - yep, it's louder than comparison. A bit too loud in headphones for me.

Not much change on the drums for the last guitar entrance?

The end sort of tails off rather than finishes.


Other than the volume difference between the leads and the ending, it's all good.

Well done!

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Frank - nice! Great feel to this one. I kept waiting for Patsy Cline to start singing along. Any chance of that happening?

Guenther,

I took the "sales" pitch to be what it was.
Thanks for compliments.

David,

I do my mix with Audio Technica ATH-M40fs headphones primarily.
Then follow up with Monitor speakers, to make sure there is a
balance from phones to speakers.

I've been concentrating on making music interesting with the changes
in the instruments. In this process, apparently I've neglected
the overall entire track levels thru the entire song. Good points to make.

The Realtracks are awesome, glad you approved of their realistic sounds.
The Style itself is awesome. Had to do bit of research to help me
understand 12-8 timing. Its not a casual thing, but with PG tools,
helps a great deal.

Have been doing a lot of gain modifications to the Jazz pieces recently for
their changes. Did a lot of gain modifications on this, but did not pick up
on the on the neglected levels.

Will have to work more with drums for the changes. This is a bit
foreign to me. Know about the bar changes for sub-groups, but drum
enhancements

Yes on the endings. Coda's are real enhancers there, used on couple
of songs, then got confused again.

BTW, I just bookmarked this thread, will call it up for next new work.

Appreciate your comments, I take them as a learning, or oh rats, should have
noticed that. You really had to listen closely to pick up on these.

Again thanks to you both!
