    Here’s my take on the song, I definitely loved the original tracks and wanted to just enhance them and make them the best they could be. Let me know what you guys think!

    Hey Mike, you got the acoustic guitars sounding great, love the width of em in the Chorus. Vocals also sound great. Also some nice bass lines. To offer something subjective, I wasn’t crazy about the snare sound but I wish the snare would have continued through the back half of chorus 1, and I wanted to hear just a little more of the bass in the mix. These of course are just my opinions and meant to be constructive.
    Great job you should be proud of this work!

    Nice job, Mike! I like the overall feel to the track and some of the background elements swirling around for a little extra flare.

    Hello Mike, I really like the sound you’ve given to the vocals and the whole mix.

    Can you tell us more about it?

    Do you mix on Protools or another DAW?
    What plugins or hardware did you use?

    Thanks in advance,

    Cyril

    Thank you!! Of course, I mixed in Pro Tools, and used EZ Drummer for the drum programming (not my strong suit, but still wanted to add a little rhythm flare). For the reverb I had a subtle plate on the vocal track as an insert, and then a hall reverb on the acoustic guitar and occasionally on the lead vocal. I used mostly UAD plugins, including an 1176 on the Vocal track which was working pretty hard to give it a lot of saturation and keep the vocals up front. For the slide guitar I just used my Jackson running through Line 6 Helix, and then the bass was a Harley Benton running through the Sans Amp plugin and an 1176. Also used Melodyne for the vocal tuning. This was actually my first time mixing a project for someone else, so it was a fun departure for me, and looking forward to doing some more in the future!
