near perfect but the levels are little too convoluted for me (pianos leap out, epiano are buried and distorted)

I had a very hard time with sound levels and mix throughout this one, including, but not limited to, a persistent mismatch of sample rates, giving me an experience of the presidents-as-looney-tunes characters over and over. I liked the way I got the samples to match onto the vocals, but the musical pieces can get overpowering.

that’s not surprising if you’re using audacity to do your mixing. at some point you want to “graduate” to a more amenable mixing host. I would recommend ACID but since giving them money support Sony Music’s DRM rootkit psychosis.

Yes. I use a Magix Audio 5 value studio, which is good for lots of things, but which lacks some of the tools for ideal mixing. It’s perhaps a bit more useful than Audacity in some ways, but it’s not ACID or even FL. Of course, each day I find another tool I didn’t realize how to use before on this little softstudio, so I’m going to use it a while longer, and really learn it, before I upgrade to something which lets me match and mix more easily.
