Hi all. Here's my mix of Glenn Mc Phee's - “A Sailor Once More”

Great song and super fun mix, but I'm a control freak and I didn't have total control over the drums so I was not as happy as I wanted to be. Notice to the unaware: When setting a session up for mixing, always bounce your cymbals separate from your drums. Common sense you'd think. But it is what it is. Still had fun!

I'm a sailor and I want more too :)

Hi Leigh,

I listend to your mix and maybe you overdid the reverb and delay? Or maybe one of your plugins is adding some static hiss? It sounds a little washed out or veiled to me, which is a shame because otherwise it sounds nice. Thanks for sharing!

Hey Leigh, good mix! The bass is a bit loud/strong for me, the snare not always clearly audible and yes, with less reverb the whole mix could reach a clearer sound ;p

Hey Leigh, nice job on the lead vocal, it sounds really present and clear. I definitely hear some of that hiss, it's audible at the start and it sounds like maybe there's too much saturation? Sounds a bit crunchy at points and it starts to lose clarity. Overall the balance is pretty good, might need some slight tweaks here and there but nothing crazy. Good job!

Hey Leigh, I am late this week. I liked your version very much. The only thing is, that I feel it has a tendency on the low frequencies. Not much, a little bit. That´ is all :).
