Reviews for "Waiting II"

What an unexpected mix of instruments, but they work very well. As allways you’ve created a rich and lush enviromend where the vocal and the pluck instruments can wander around. Alltough I feel there are some points when it’s getting a bit crowded and the induvidual parts get lost in the woods.
The song itself is beautifull. While I write this I’m listening to the acapella and I would expect it in an rock song but I love the direction you taking with it. I guess it has been worth waiting for the final version.
It’s a bit messy indeed. After the umpteenth crash I wanted to upload only the stems of what I had at the moment, but even that didn’t work. And when I eventually got the project going again I decided to finish it as a remix. Maybe I should have stuck with the stems-only plan. But to make up for that I will upload those later on (maybe even today).
Wouldn’t necessarily call it messy and wouldn’t have wanted to miss the full remix with em’s voice.
Its more a choice of octave wich makes it crowded in the intro there are four main sounds in the same region wich can be hard to follow. I would dropped 1 or 2 one octave and would have lowered the dulchimers volume a touch (or the feedback of it’s delay).
Do you eq your reverbs and delays?? Because I also have the idea the your reverb on the drums is mudding the the track.
Nonetheless I’m listening for the 6th (four in a row) time now and still getting the chills.
First of all, thanks for the ed pick. A bit unexpected, to be honest.
Dropping one or two of the tracks an octave would have cleared things up a bit, but would also give those tracks a different sound. Lowering the volume of the dulcimer a tad has been on my mind though. I guess I got a bit lazy towards the end.
Sometimes I do eq my reverbs and delays, but then they have to be on a (seperate) send channel, which is not always the case, like here. The reverb on the drums are the natural ambience of the room in which they were recorded. It is on a seperate channel in the plug-in, but was routed to one and the same stereo output channel. And ofcourse for the intro I applied a multi-effect, which gives it a heavily processed sound, but is therefore also hard to control.
Anyway, thanks for the tips. Something to keep in mind for potential future remixes.

Beautiful remix that works very very well! Towards the middle of the song I am reminded of the Prog Rock days, the organ and the lead are dragging so saturated the song further to the brilliant ending! Great track!

mystical, hypnotic, mesmerizing. the surge of power surrounding the entrance of the vocal sparks the root center. love the space at the verse and the way you build and fall. a truly artistic piece. your style and arrangement is magic. thank you so very much for remixing me!!

A very powerful piece. Very emotive. I love that Cello it adds such power, depth and again.. emotion. (I am hearing a cello right? heh..). And thanks for including me in this, I’m quite honored.
It’s actually a heavily processed bowed guitar. At least, that’s what it says on the tin.
I also used the melody of your solo for the synth lead part later on and elaborated on that.
Thank you for uploading such very fine samples. The recording quality is pretty good and I liked that you uploaded them in different keys.

Oh my. First 3 secs got me instantly hooked. I know I’m not saying anything new and less eloquently than the rest. But just had to leave a comment to say this is really really top notch.
Thank you very much, Ivan.
Funny to see how my own perception differs from that of other people. I guess that when you have been working on something for that long, with all the technical problems that have accompanied this remix, it is hard to judge it independent from all the trials and tribulations. This reception makes it worthwhile though.
