    Great voice and performance.

    The acoustic guitar is really "spiky" and harsh. It sounds over-compressed. So you can take some limiting/compression off the mix, or EQ out some highs.

    The reason it is spiky and harsh is because there is absolutely no processing on the channel. Nothing. No eq and no compression.

    You did correctly note that all I have as effects are on the main bus ... including brickwall compression -- which keeps the dynamics of the performance, but allows individual channels to "be what they are" ... and my direction was, that way.

    I kept true to the original by keeping everything REALLY dry. The vocal is first pass -- and as Trip will (if he checks in) note, there are a couple of clicks and pops.

    Good call, N. I will attend. Thank you.

    This took me less than a hour to put together.

    That explains it. I was going to originally write to compress the guitar to tame it, but then at the same time it felt so loud and spiky that I figured it must have already been compressed. I was hearing the brickwall on the main buss, I guess.

    I'd personally compress the acoustic just a little on the individual tracks and back off a lot on the buss/brickwall. The EQ suggestion might change as you lower the volume, but right now the highs are just a bit too brittle and chimey. I think it's the buss compressor doing that, though.

    I had no problem with the dry vocal. I really enjoyed the vocal performance...it was kinda like Dylan. Loose in a good way and a unique timbre.

    No processing the vocal at all ... also.

    This was ... outside of main buss compression ... pretty off the mic.

    But I totally appreciate your input. Thanks, N.

    Me too. I've played a lot of his material in various bands over the years. American Girl is my daughter's official theme song.

    Tamed the git via eq this morning -- as per NOLA's suggestion.

    I brought the vocal forward a smidge, and dropped the keys slightly back too.

    Thanks for the comment!

    I think Tom would smile as he listened to your remake of his audio. Very well done! Do you have any other audio links for your music? I would love to check them out.
