Secret Mountains: 'High Horse'
I've mixed a few songs since I started learning a few months ago, but this one is a special one for me.

I like the sound I've gotten, but as usual, you have the last word because you all know more than me.

I've tried to get everything to sound more the way I wanted, and also, I've added in some parts of the song, some kind of ethereal feeling especially in the voices. By the way, I used Dido as a reference because the singer's voice reminds me of her!

I hope you like the result!!

I got rid of the ticking sound. It was annoying! and then I checked other mixes here, and it seems that everybody had the same idea Smile

I've already changed a little bit of the snare and it's not that loud anymore.

Thank you as usual for your help/advice, my friend!!

wish granted, Don!!

Do you know what? for the first time in these months, I've been proud of the sound I got from the drums.... and silly me, I got carried away by my enthusiasm and left them with a higher volume in comparison with the rest of the mix. It must be some kind of unconcious way to make everybody pay attention to it.

But I'll try to 'control my enthusiasm' from now on and make things as they should be! Big Grin

Thanks for passing by!!
