The Districts - Vermont (STMROB Remix)
Here is my 3rd version of this remix.

The rhythm guitar tracks needed correction at least at two places (C7b9 chord). Correction was made using the same chord played correctly. at the first chorus

The background added is a virtual Mellotron with an MKII Strings patch. I feel the idea is good and the groove is improved, but I also realized after listening on another system that there was a build up on the high mid frequencies and the mellotron only helped emphasize that problem with the guitars. One of the main difficulties with this song is to keep control on the overheads. In this case, I used some docking control on some of these tracks, with the lead vocal as side chain input. Then I silenced some parts of the OH tracks where the guitars were most present. That left some place for the guitars and Mellotron to blend in.

Thanks Thedon. I still have to listen in different environments and maybe I'll be doing a few more adjustments after that.

Regards.

Mik123, you may be right, sounds a bit aggressive compared to the other mixes. For the hollow freq on the drums, I think I see where the problem is. Back to work.

Thanks.

RE: The Districts - Vermont (STMROB Remix)
Listened last mix. Love the mellotron. I think it suits the tune well but is fighting a. It with the guitars and my move would be to let the guitars win, maybe duck mellotrone gently with guitar bus as side chain.
Like the verbs on guitars.
It is very authentic mid sixties soundin. Ventures meet Traffic Big Grin

Old ears, old gear, little boy inside love music and sounds and my wife, not necessarily in that order

Thanks Voelund. Here is the last version of the mix that addresses some problems with the highs too loud, the dull drum sound and the general balance.

Hope this one is better.

Regards.
