    Both versions sound good so the mastering step wasn't very critical IMO. The Gateway master is a tiny bit more cohesive, the vocals especially jump out a bit less iun the mids/lower mids. That seems to translate to the acoustic as well. It does seem smoother but I wouldn't say it makes the song work any better than your Home mix.

    Don't like the song (fwiw).

    I do notice a bit of difference. Like I said the pro mastered versions sounded more stable on multiple listening sources than my version did.

    As far as liking the tune...Well I am more of a rock/metal guy myself so this is a bit different for me. Chicks really dig the country tune so 'fwiw' works for me as well. lol

    I have 27 more tunes like this to go on this project. A bunch of them covers of 90's rock tunes. 'L.O.V.E.' (Wasp), 'I Remember You' (duh), 'Faithfully' (duh), 'On With The Show' (Motley Crue), 'Jane Said' (Jane's Addiction), and a Zepplin tune. Needless to say I have my hands full of country shizzle.... But it helps to pay the bills and the dood doesn't suck. So here I am. Learning by doing.


    Cheers!

    Yeah I had a hard time noticing any significant difference I kept playing A&B through various parts and yes maybe in a few spots the vocals were more present...but hell I mean we are talking splitting the hairs off of a gnats ass...Guess what I'm saying is You done a damn fine job alls on your own son!

    I'm old so I guess I can tolerate country more...the song was AOK to me...

    Here's screen shot of the waves compared

    Thanks man!

    Yeah, it was split hair kind of thing really, though I still do like the mastered version more on multiple systems.

    Truth be told, the artist really wanted a mastering house that has had Grammy award winning songs in his credits. That I think was the main reason he paid for it. And I think that was a good move for him in promoting his song and now video.

    Just spent the last two days getting this mastering job done. It was quite an experience listening to the whole thing in that room.
