    Modern miracles still happen.
    My collaborator & I actually managed to work together in the same room to record some stuff.
    Terry travelled a couple of hours south by train to spend the day with my mrs & I AND record some vocals etc.
    The above is a VERY rough mix of After the Burning. We began this in about 1990.
    Terry recorded the vocals through his very nice sennheiser into a Blue Tube pre (not the new one) & then into cakewalk.
    2 vocal tracks to allow a bit of flow & over lap almost verse about. As well as some bvox.
    I didn't have time to do a decent mix & there may be some vol diff between the vox tracks.
    The drums are in mono with a guitar layered in as well, (old 4 track pingponging) I duplicated the drum track and did some EQing & panning to mock stereo but they need to be replaced I know.
    The bass is as recorded originally and the semi acoustic guitar doubled with a little delay on one.
    The wooshing effect is Yamaha FX 500's soft focus tweaked to give a 'cello style effect (again in mono & panned for extra effect)
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    This could still work without a lot of retracking! Is it my ears, or is a lot of this panned up the middle?

    Maybe bring up the volume on the drums a hair. On my system they are getting lost in there somewhere after the guitars kick in.

    Nice song, and yeah, the vocals need a little bit more attention. Not bad, but they could be compressed a little to tame them.

    I would pan the guitars hard left and right, and maybe tweak the volume of both of them a bit. At times it's hard to hear more than one guitar.

    Very nice vibe going on with this tune.
    Instead of a Do Not Disturb Sign, I need one that says "Already Disturbed. Proceed With Caution".

    Very interesting. Tis a good song, good ideas.

    Recordingwise it needs redone.

    The drums are in mono with a guitar layered in as well, (old 4 track pingponging)
    Yeah, its creating a lot of tape noise. The volume is very low on this, and the tape noise is quite audible.

    Songwise, it sounds like a Ray original Very quirky and fun, interesting lyrics.

    I don't know why that last mix came out quite as badly as it did - it sounded better on the comp - I did find some driver issues that may have contributed.
    Here's a better version that addresses some of the issues raised as well as being more representative of what was on tape & is on disk - the mix is slightly lopsided at present.
