Here’s a simple little tune that’s been fighting me off and on for the last month or so. Before I go any further with it I was wondering if a few of you kind folks could throw your opinions my way.
This version has a few inserts on the master out - 1) Nomad Factory British NEQ-1972, 2) IK Multimedia TRackS3 Classic Comp, 3) Nomad Factory PulseTec EQs, 6) IK Multimedia TRackS3 Brickwall Lim, 7) UV22HR (Mixdown from 88.2 32 project to 44.1 16 wav)
I think what it really needs is some harmonica (and of course some lowdown dirty blues lyrics), so I bought one a couple days ago. Give me a couple weeks to learn how to play it and come up with some lyrics and I’ll post an updated version.
Levels will need some tweaking I’m sure once vocals/harmonica are added but I’m just wondering how the general balance between instruments sounds.
Here’s the same mixdown with only the UV22HR on the master out and the master fader adjusted +2.5 for the highest peak to be -.1 which happens right at the end (Brickwall Limiter was set at -.1 on the “mastered” track) …
There is a certain sound I’m going for but I don’t know exactly how to describe it. Muddy Waters is what I’m kind of shootin’ for. Tight and punchy but loose at the same time.
How does it sound so far ?
