    This is a Collab with Paul 881, we did a version last year.

    Mixing/EQ advice desperately needed. Very cool song.

    Drover's Hill

    The Cello Solo on the same page will be the beginning of this tune.

    Damn that is GREAT music.

    Strings put me in a transe. Well done, I couldn't tell you a thing about the mix.
    Only that I loved the tune.

    sounds good..........maybe seperate them in the stereo field just a touch, as when they are going at the same time they seem to cover each other up a bit too much...........

    Violin and cello sound awesome! I thought the bass (Whatever you're using for a bass here) was a bit weak, and the effect on the guitars was a little too much, making it sound a little washed out. The music is gorgeous however, and well makes up for the rest. I did like the fact that the guitar sounded almost like a lute here, which is very fitting for the piece.

    Thanks for the comments! The guitar effect is Paul881s, not mine.

    I have a "Straight" guitar part with no effects that I will try. I "mixed" this on headphones (Girlfriend was sleeping). To me, the violin sounds way too loud.

    I like the panning idea. Any ideas about eq/mixing are needed.
    The violin has some reverb, I also have a dry version. Thanx

    P.s. Bass is a bass, I will crank it a tad.

    Thumbs up

    Sounds great It has an Irish feel to it. I like.

    From a mix point of view I'd say the violin is a touch loud. I'd also use a different reverb and maybe not on all the tracks, the one you have makes it sound a bit too "live" to me and clouds the mix a bit. It's a great tune though and fantastic playing. I wish I hadn't stopped learning the violin when I was 7 hehe

    I made a new version, Drover 2 drover 2

    I made the Cello solo and the tune into one song, and slightly remixed the song.

    Once I get some MORE advice from you knuckleheads, this is going to be pretty cool. We are string players dammit, we spent our lives in practice rooms We know how to play our instruments big-time, but youz guyz have taught me a lot about recording.

    The Drover 2 is good music, it just needs some help.Cheers, DK

    Wow nice mix. I really like the stereo separation and think that adding a little more would benefit. I Enjoyed the mix, if I closed my eyes there was definitely a mediaval scene with costumes an all appearing

    a well developed piece you got. Its very emotional. I like the tone on the cello, the bow is really smooth on it. I like the whole thing, was very impressed with the production.

    Hey David, I just had to check out the new version. This is really a beautiful piece. Are you finished with it now? Just wanted to know if I should be watching for updates. Of course I pretty much live here anyway, so chances are, I'll catch it if you post something new.
