This is an exceptional mix and i can hear the high level of arrangement and production and time put into it. Very inspiring and a beautiful feeling expressed by you, thank you for mixing me. L

You are welcome. It was padding out the second half of the song which took so long. After I finished what I originally had in mind I had less than two minutes and by then I had already committed to using ‘real’ instruments so I couldn’t copy and paste my way out of it. It was worth the extra effort, though, I am very happy with the result.

This is absolutely great. Brings me back to the mid-to-late 80s when I heard Isabelle Antena’s first album.

Terrific composition. Absolutely beautiful backing for the vocals.

There are times when the drums (snare and cymbals) drown out the vocals - but that’s a minor point, because this is outstanding work.

Yes, the drums are rather overwhelming in parts. I tried to pull them back in the mixing stage but couldn’t make it work. After the recording is finished it is difficult to change the sound without also changing the feel, and I eventually decided going with the hard-hitting shuffle I started out with.

This is great! Wow! The first chord splashes slightly familiar in a Steely Dan kind of way, then the great sound of the drums and bass, and of course the dynamics of the track. Let me repeat myself here — WOW!!! Love this track!

I think you are right, it is more Steely Dan than Toto but then Jeff Porcaro played with both so that is okay!
