    3rd mix: "On your Way", with forum help

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/8hywaowxlqlgsgm/on your way_3.wav?dl=0

    ok, after last post, and a bunch of great suggestions, i've done a more aggressive mix here,
    some tricks, some simple mix changes, what do you think of this version?
    if you want to know what i've done, please ask, but i think it's better to just hear it first, without any preconceptions, because i know i trick myself with that sometimes.

    Sounds straight out of the prog rock era to me....the vocal, the phrasing, the guitars.....all sounds great!

    I am listening late at night through cheap earbuds, it’s all there......will give another listen in the morning through speakers. Great work gonzo....I can hear there’s a ton of work gone into that....not just the writing and playing, but the studio and mixing too! :cool::cool: Bravo!

    hey strato!
    i guess maybe i should just go ahead and write a straight-up prog tune!!
    LOL
    i do love prog, but i also love the stones, WTF?

    cheap earbuds?!!

    why?
    we put a man on the moon in 1969,
    why listen to cheap ear buds!!!!

    yes a lot of work went into crafting the song,
    mix isn't quite there yet tho.


    i don't keep old versions, i don't find any value in looking back.

    i'm only interested in knowing if where i am now, is moving in the right direction.

    .....cheap earbuds because it’s late a night, I don’t want to disturb my wife, or dog.....who is the one that ate the expensive earbuds!!!!!
    A man on the moon in 69....really!?!? ;)

    Anyway, as great as it sounds, and it does sound good.....for me....and it’s just my preference....it is agressively compressed....which is cool...just not my preference.

    I was thinking of trying to download it or copy it so that I could put a meter on it....

    Just my 2cents worth. You are doing a great job man!
