870 mixes yet... who can listen to this?  :o

That's why I mixed it and didn't bother to document and upload. It was fun, though.

I wanna hear how fun it was!!  ;)
not sure if I can attach an mp3 from my phone?

If this works, it's an early-ish version before I wrestled with the drums. It's really just a rough.  I don't have the project files any more, though, so it is what it is.  Gives you a good idea where I was headed, anyways.

Edit: apparently you can't upload files via tapatalk. I'll put a link up a little later.
Edit2: Here's the soundcloud -


Very nice, well balanced. My only criticism is the changing of the stereo field with the guitar feels a little unnatural for this type of track (completely subjective) I like it  ;D

Thank you. I guess I'm just really over particular sometimes. To me, the kick is too mushy, the snare is too clicky, and in this version I hadn't found the toms yet. And it's over compressed on the 2 bus. Lol.

I haven't decided if I'm going to finish this one. There's paid work in front of me demanding time, and there's other mixes I'm sure that are more "technically correct" than mine, which was the biggest criteria I saw.

If I get a chance tonight, I'm going to try to listen to some of the ones here...

Felt like it was intentional, felt kinda 70s, considering the music it seemed appropriate :)

Is usage of drum samples allowed? I only used a kick drum sample and made a balance between the original kick and the sample. Didn't do resampling on anything else.

They said you can master it if you want, but they're listening to them level matched, so don't feel required to.

Very cool, I was concerned about this because the very first comment I received was that it might be too loud for the contest. If they level match that's great, I didn't slam it so with or without the Slate it sounds pretty much identical :D
