    Great professional, unusual, original sound with some nice touches in the mix , nice coherent stereo stage
    ..re de-esser, i’m afraid that will take away from the high end of the EQ which I do not want to do. I’ll give it a try though. My best bet might be to just hack peaks off of the wav. I’m new to reaper (this), Will try that when I figure out how. Thanks!

    Super cool idea and overall mix sounds solid. Only critique might be the drums could sound a bit wetter. The bass is adequate, but I kept envisioning how much cooler a more aggressive, perhaps even slap bass part would sound.

    Thanks Stevie, ...it wrote itself and is what it is.��. Probably right re wetter drums, I might mess with that when I revisit this. Kinda burned out on it now, and off to other things.

    maybe a bit of distortion/fuzz on the upper bass line. Do you have any harmonic enhancer/distortion plug in on the voice? If not you might add in just a touch not enough to be noticed but, it might put the vocal right where it should sit.

    Agreed, lead vocal up 2db in first half of the song. I'd put reverb on those "Ooohs" and lower them they sound awkward. Everything else sounds great, very unique tune !
