  1. Tom, as always your feedback is most welcome! As for the end, yeah, I don't think I'm quite done with this one yet, but I think it's finally getting to be in the ballpark of where I wanted it to go. Thanks!
  2. Thank you for your kind comments, especially on the guitar work which I do struggle with.
  3. Thanks, Bob I appreciate you taking the time to listen and comment.
  4. Great video and a groovy tune. The mix is absolutely perfect. Well done!
  5. Really great cover! My wife is a huge Simple Minds fans and she says you nailed it. I'm not familiar with their back catalog so I can only comment on what you have here and it's just wonderful. Great mix with deftly handled vocals. The production is pristine, complex and everything is exactly where it's supposed to be. Can't say enough good stuff about this one.
  6. Beautiful vocals in a great song with a stellar mix. Thank you!
  7. Thank you Kurt! I'd love to hear your suggestions on how to achieve clarity. I've been pulling my hair out trying to do that without making things sound like frying bacon. 😬 Nevermind, I found an errant EQ on a bus somewhere just crushing everything from 4k on up. I posted a new version that I think sounds at least much more clear if not better.

    I'm enjoying the heck out of this. Very cool musical choices and the synths sound really good.
  9. Really good mix of a very good song. Great and imaginative vocals. Really like the drum sounds!

    Really beautiful piece, I was anticipating every note. Something to be savored, thank you for posting this.
  11. This is great and it sounds fantastic on a phone no less. The cellos are an inspired choice!
  12. Here's a new one, it's getting close, but it's still a work in progress. I think the ending will be reworked pretty heavily. Still, it's at a point where some critical feedback will help me put this on to bed. Thanks for listening and critiquing! Update: Added a new mix and a bit of a re-worked ending. Thanks! Update 2: Posted a new mix that addresses vocal clarity, thank you, Kurt! Update 3: A new mix was added today
  13. I use a tool called Equalizer APO that implements the Windows sound system's audio enhancements capability. This allows developers to write things like custom EQ tools that can be inserted in the sound drivers chain for Windows. Equalizer APO is one of those, and it has the ability to act as a VST host, and I load the Slate plugin so that all Windows sound is processed by VSX. Works great. Oh yeah, 👍 on your comment about how well the plugin and phones work together, the system is just incredible and IMHO it blows Sonarworks completely out of the water.
  14. Sorry, I was referring to fret_man's post. I had it running systemwide until I got the Slate VSX headphones. Sonarworks has been bumped from pride of place by those wonderful (but pricey) phones.
  15. I was assuming that the OP is using ASIO drivers in the DAW. I didn't think the systemwide service sat in front of the ASIO stack. In any case, the VST plug in does have to be disabled at render time, at least with the version I have. Perhaps newer revs are different.
  16. I believe the Slate system automatically disables the plug in when you export. I also have A Sonarworks and I'm pretty sure it must be disabled manually.
  17. I picked up a pair about two months ago. I always mix with headphones and then struggle with making them sound right. Not using headphones wasn't an option. The VSX system has been a game-changer for me. I'm with you, I love them and I recommend them. The Archon mid-field with ear profile 2 is my go-to setup as well.

    There's a method to the madness here and I like where you're going with it. I'd take some time to make the vocals stand out a bit more, they're really well done. Not so much make them louder but give them a bit of space to let them be clearer. Maybe duck the overall instrumental mix very slightly with the vocals using the bus compressor's side chain input and maybe using some judicious panning of the instruments to make a hole for the vocals. By the way, loved the "woo-oo" thing at the end, actually quite musical. I've always liked you're music, and this is a great addition.

    Lots of stuff to like in this one. As always with your stuff, there are great vocals supporting a good melody over some truly interesting harmony. Sometimes I hear a strong Atlanta Rhythm Section vibe in there. Great playing everywhere you look. As for the mix, you always do a great job getting a "modern/vintage" vibe going with all the parts, nice and clear but smooth too. To my ears some additional work needs to be done to get all the parts to gel together better, but I'm not sure what that would be. Perhaps some light compression on the sub-mixes? Finally, that is one groovy bass line, bro!
  20. Thank you all, I'm calling this one finished. Whew. I appreciate your many listens of this track and your willingness to share your opinions!
  21. Thanks for listening, David! My sense of honor compels me to protect your status as an innocent so I will refrain from explaining the lyrics.
  22. Thank Missy for me, won't you? Thanks for listening, Wookie. I see you have a few new ones out there that I have yet to give a listen to. Something to look forward to!
  23. I've posted a new mix taking into account all of your feedback. Please let me know if it hits the mark better. Thank you!
