Rough mix (30 Minutes ;-) ) to give you an idea. Have adjusted the things in the mix that I noticed directly: - Guitar too little treble - Vocals a little too much treble - Overall more compression You seem to have tapped the quarters with your foot? Now that the guitar is compressed and has more treble it disturbs a bit in my opinion. Do not misunderstand, the song is insanely good and I just want to help get the best out :-) Do you have a reference for the mix? Any song that is similar and whose mix you like, so I can orient myself to it ... Youtube / Spotify link will do :-)

I think this song is similar to this one in some ways. Maybe good for sound reference. https://youtu.be/k8mtXwtapX4 Great mix! I feel like the vocal still needs something but I don't know what. I always hear engineers says that the mids in my voice needs to come up so maybe it's that? Pretty great mix for 30 mins David! :-) QUENTIN! our voices go together like peanut butter and jelly, or... whatever the French equivalent to that is ;-D

Ah from the movie "Once"! This is sooooo good - the music AND the movie :-) Very good reference for mixing.

Regarding further instruments: The song works pretty damn well as it is. In my opinion it doesn't need drums - maybe some shakers or something like in one of your mixes. Cello would be cool :-)

Hi David. Funny thing is, I had the same idea as you this morning when I mixed Tracy?s track with Monk?s instrumental mix. And I totally agree that your mix is all it takes. To do more would, in my opinion, spoil the character of the song. Support may be missing some brushes. Have a good week-end, Phil

I agree, no more instruments are needed really. We have your foot tapping for percussion and it lends a very comforting authentic edge to the song in my opinion. Though I agree with David that cello would be cool.

If you don't want drums, please remove it from your project dashboard. Otherwise someone may waste some precious time and energy on this..... Thank you.

I'm gonna do the guitar part asap... without tapping with my foot. :) Is it possible to make the sound "warmer", less high-pitched with what we have?

I assume you mean the guitar? Should be possible. I'll check it with Falling Slowly when I'm back home. Heard this mix in the car, the guitar is lost and not heard well. So less treble is ok, probably needs more midrange then.
