    Hey, it’s sounding better, I also went direct to your SoundCloud to listen there. I’ll leave you a note there too. I still feel while the arrangement is top drawer there is something not punching its full weight. It has such great potential. Can you re-upload the full fat wav file to SoundCloud? The mp3 is only for the email submission.

    I agree with many others here. I had similar issues when I started but found the Abbey Road Studio 3 plugin a great help on the mix buss and calibrated to your headphones. But you must remember of you do that to bypass before rendering down. I then have CD-RW’s which I burn the wav version too as an audio CD which I then play over in the car, on…[Read more]

    • Those are the kind of problems you never imagine that they could be problems at all. But now, i’m aware, and the next competition will come, for sure.

      Thanks again for all your replies and feedback.

    Thank you so much, that means a lot!!

    Well done John, it was worth the wait, great mix, like what you did with the arrangement and Clo’s voice.

    Thanks Mike!

    I think I might have just heard the winner. Simply brilliant. Nothing else to say.

    And that’s jazz in a nutshell!! Love it..!!!!

    I hear this being played over the end titles of Marvel or DC film! So full and varied. Nicely done.

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Oh yes, I enjoyed that!! Really works well. Very nice job indeed.

    Beautiful. I just let it wash over me. Prog-Rock Ballad, what’s not to like! Great job.

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Very clean, great beats and atmospherics. Excellent arrangement and mix.

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Really great mix, super arrangement. You must be right up there!!

    Link seems to take us to a private YouTube John, can you make it public please, would love to see what you’ve done. Cheers!

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    A very interesting take Brian. Clever idea. Nicely done.

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Good job Mike, solid rock. Sounds well saturated, gives it a real old “tape” sound. Like it.

    Thanks so much Vyero, I am very happy you enjoyed the approach. Sliding Doors – The Musical, now that works!! Let’s you and I get it on Broadway before someone steals the idea!!! Best of luck my friend.

    @Lupino: Interesting you found that, maybe I’ve been too immersed in the woods to see the trees, but I am sure you’re right. So pleased you liked the vocal treatment. Really appreciate your comments.

  • Ian Humphreys posted a new activity comment 1 year, 1 month ago

    Hiya: I like the arrangement very much, it’s inventive and smacks of musicality, but I think, judging by your own comment, the mix is unfinished. I can just tell given more time this would be awesome. You’ve made some really interesting comments on mine and other mixes so you know where it’s at. If you go back to it I’d love to hear the finished…[Read more]

    • Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, i am somewhat clueless on what i did wrong. I listened to the upload through my studio monitors again, and it sounds way better. Or, let’s say, it sounds more like i intended it to sound.

      But through my regular boxes (and apparently your’s too) it sounds terribly low-end heavy. I have no idea how i should…[Read more]

      • There’s a plugin that I use by Sonarworks called Reference 4—now called ID Reference, I think—that applies a flattening curve to the frequencies of a large number of popular headphones so that when it’s applied to your master bus you can hear it in a neutral, ‘uncoloured’ way. It’s remarkable to realise how much colouration your headphones app…[Read more]

        • Thanks for the tipp, i looked into it and will give it a trial.

          I just found a way to access all my output devices through my DAW, so maybe i will upload a re-remix (out of competition, of course). But it astonishes me to realise how different monitor/headphones (which sound similar enough) on one hand, and my regular speakers on the other hand…[Read more]

          • I don’t own pro monitors/speakers (maybe one day) however from personal experience I’d start with a decent set of headphones (my Beyerdynamics 80 ohm DT770s are certainly not perfect, but I’m happy with them) and use the Sonarworks plugin that I mentioned. Most things that I’ve mixed using that combination sound slightly different, but perfectly…[Read more]

      Hey, short update: I just uploaded a re-mastering of the song. It is still far from perfect, but it sounds way more like i intended it to sound:

      (of course, this version runs outside the competition!)

    I am such a sucker for an arrangement like this, lovely!! I think some vocal treatment could be added as the mix livens up, I liked it dry to start. Overall though, I enjoyed it very much!!
