Hi Mike. Did you miss my second bite at the mix (having found the missing low octaves!) in post #157? I can't see any response to it, but it might just be me doing something dumb!

I'd not got round to having a listen yet, I'm afraid -- I'm having to prioritise first-round critiques at the moment. When those are done, though, I'll try to have quick skate through the revised mixes as well.
No problem. Just thought I'd better check. I've left the original mix in my Dropbox for anyone who wants to make the comparison. I'm still scratching my head as to how the bass ended up so lacking in the first version TBH. Very, very odd...

Your comment about the bass made me smile. In my last mix of the song I found I couldn't resist powering up the Taurus pedals for that troublesome mid-section...  ;D

Thanks for the detail in your review Mike. Your effort is very much appreciated. Much respect.

It’s a weird thing. The morning after I sent the mix out to you I also played it in my car and I too felt that the bottom end was considerably lacking. I thought I was just having a bad hearing day! Usually I’m a culprit for over-cooking bass in the first iteration of a mix, so it came as a bit of a shock! I was soooo tempted to go and change it, but that seemed like cheating!  :D

I’ll take a look at the stuff you’ve pointed out. I’ve been working in isolation for so many years it’s nice to have some feedback from critical and trusty ears.

I did know my bright plate on the drums would be contentious – I loathe ‘roomy’ drums, I’m afraid! Ah, it’s just my age showing!  ;D

Of course I couldn't resist this - it's catnip to our kind!  ;D

Here's my mix - I had great fun with it. Some, erm, interesting challenges in there Mike!
