On the Line - arrangement changes and mix
Hi there,

Thank you James for making this lovely song available for mix practice!
Really enjoyed it.

I put arrangement changes but it's really just a few little tweaks, but I constructed an intro to show off a little more cello, and also to demonstrate problems I was having with the guitars, which is why the eq moves around for the first few bars Smile

I decided early on that the cello was going to take centre-stage as much as possible (love cello!)

I used one reverb for all instruments and vocals, the Softube TSAR-1R, and used a UAD EMT 140 for a drum plate.
I sent the bass DI signal through an amp-sim then blended with the original.
Did the same with the cellos.

I revisited the guitars because I made a mess of them first time round, and tried to add back some warmth to the cello.

There's parallel compression on the drum bus, and I put Softube Tape on the drum bus as well.
Every channel was mixed through Console 1's SSL 4000E strips, and I mixed into the Drawmer S73 on the Mix bus, and slapped a Pultec plug over the mix buss as well.

That pretty much covers the breakdown!

Would love to hear what you think. Thanks!
