  1. Not a thing. It’s perfect as is 😊
  2. Nice one Kurt!!! If you’re still taking suggestions about percussion, adding layered shakers throughout the whole song may help fill out the groove so you don’t have to look for congas and bongos. You could use an egg shaker and keep it dry, and layer it with a soft shaker with a long bright reverb and it would tie the mix together nicely. Another idea is to get the biggest floor tom sound you can find, add a long dark reverb to it (with a long predelay so it stays punchy) , and place it in the down beat (yes, the down beat) of every bar in the β€œA” parts of the song. It will change the dynamics of those parts without making it sound busy. Great job with this piece as is though πŸ‘πŸΌ
  3. Niooooo!!!! Buenisima compadre. Thanx 4 sharing it with us. πŸ™πŸΌ
  4. You may have to use several instances of both on the same track so the β€œrules” become null. There are no right answers.
  5. YouTube has tons of resources on this BTW
  6. I’ve been mixing with the earbuds that came with the phone I listen to music in (Best thing that has happened to my mixes) Obviously check on as many other speaker systems as possible before you consider it done, but this approach saves me a lot of time.
  7. I’ve tamed proximity effect using a multiband compresor before. Throw a low cut EQ from about 250 Hz with a 6db curve and then add multiband compression. Pull the threshold down on the low band (not the subs), give it a 4:1 compression with a fast attack (5-10 mls) and a quick release (<50 mls) and leave the rest of the frequencies untouched on the multiband compresor. You can always add other instances of comp and EQ after this depending on what you want out of the mix. No one setting is good enough for an entire vocal track so you gotta automate the volume BEFORE the effects-In other words, the effects have to be post fader. Good luck 🀞🏼

    Great job Kurt! Really enjoyed it πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌ
  9. Great piece Mark. Wow!
  10. Mark! This is great. I'm a huge John Mayer fan and this reminded me of something he would do. I totally mean that as a compliment. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Can't wait till you get WiFi in that barn of yours. πŸ˜‰
  11. There's a lot of great videos in the tutorial section here and on YouTube about that. Recording is not only fun but incredibly rewarding. Once you learn the basics you can record on most DAWs out there and it becomes second nature. It's like driving cars. They all have the same basic things. It's up to you to determine where you go with it. Good luck with everything.
  12. Thank you so much for taking the time, Jack. I really appreciate it.
  13. Hey Dave! That was great. I loved the arrangement and mix choices you made here. You definitely pulled off the huge ambient pop sound you were going for. Thanx for sharing it here.
