Got a last minute job from a pair of songwriters I've worked with a lot over the years. They've been demoing out songs with a singer that does a lot of tours in Indonesia and SE Asia. She needed 3 songs to demo around during her next tour that starts next week..
Needless to say it's kind of a whirlwind job to import their tracks, track all the vocals and then mix it before next monday.
We did vocals for one whole song in 6 hours and then I spent another 2 hours getting a rough mix together from a few dozen vocal comps and backing tracks. Thankfully the singer is amazingly consistent and humble and comping together takes was no sweat, and we're going to go without any tuning.
So here's the next version of mix. I've spread the background instruments and made them intelligible a bit more, added some more ambience to things, and hopefully balanced things a bit better and get a little more low end on smaller speakers.
I'm trying to bring all the goodies to the table here. I didn't feel it was terribly boring, but it's more of a filler song in my mind. I think this was the first song written by the group, even before the singer was involved, so I think it was a bit of playing it safe.
I hope my work on this inspires them to keep going and find their stride.
