Night Mission?

Recommended Posts

I can't decide whether to call this Night or Flight Mission. It was originally "night" before I added the "out in the far blue yonder" line, which of course wouldn't be there at night 🙄

Either way, I think it's pretty much completed now, other than that one word. Comments welcomed as always. Enjoy 🙂

Sorry @Keith Wilby way to loud, +0.6 dB see the attached Youlean loudness analysis that red line across the top is clipping.

Sorry miss spelt your name on the top my furry apologies.

I'm not hearing the distortion, but clearly there are some overs in the Youlean analysis.
Like the tune, so 👍's on that!

Just a word about mp3 conversion, I find I have to keep the Master at -1dB or I get overs on the conversion (or direct export).
I always bring the exported mp3 back in the project and confirm I don't have any overs.
YMMV

I can confirm that Izotope Insight agrees with the Youlean analysis.
As far as crits, I covered that when you put the tune up originally; solid tune. 😉
Would I mix it differently, yup; would it be "better", nope...

Thanks for the responses guys. My apologies, this isn't meant to be a completed master, just a completed song/mix. mp3 just seemed a convenient way of sharing.

I do understand @Keith Wilby what I was trying to tell you was I can not play it back there is so much distortion and it is so over driven that it is painful to hear.

I would like to hear it but you need to reduce some level in your mix.

Obviously the furry ears are much more sensitive than my (very battered and frequency limited) non-fuzzy ones.
I am the first to admit I do not possess the "golden ears" I wish I had...

I do not know, look at the Youlean analysis look at the true peak figure 1.4 that is + 1.4 over digital 0.0dB.

Love the tune, Keith. But yeh, gotta agree it's too loud. My ears are surely not golden these days, having been tarnished by too many decades on the stage, but even I can hear the distortion. Tom, I understand; you're a guitarist and tube devotee, so distortion is your native ecosphere. 

Tom does understand the math, though, and he's right about limiting for MP3 encoding. Mathematically speaking, you can only guarantee no overs in an MP3 by setting the hard limit to -3 dB. That's a little extreme, though, and -1 dB should soften the blow a lot.

Yeh, that's the ticket. I'm always delighted when a simple tweak makes a radical difference. The guitar tones are richer, lyrics more intelligible, drums punchier. Great job.
