I would agree. Also, remember to try playing the mix through speakers at low volume as well. That can many times unearth mix inequities. A solo or vocal that is too loud will stick out like a sore thumb. It is always a good idea to try many listening scenarios. Many people even put the mix on speakers and listen from the next room for a different perspective. An interesting idea.

A big part of it for me is just enjoying the creative process. It is a thrill to have a finished song. Also, I have enjoyed going back and listening to collections of Tony's stuff or just going onto Soundclick and listening to a bunch of Zoetrope's 2000 tunes. I think more of us should make up albums of our materiels and present them for listening to each other. Some of my output is uneven, but I think I could cobble 4 or 5 pretty good tunes into an album. I would like to add a bunch of hmhs people's tunes to my iTunes collection. I really should do that. It might be helpful if people suggested an album of songs though. This has been a recurring idea of mine.

Bandcamp.com would be a great place for such an album, people could pull together their personal favorite stuff into albums and then you can download the whole album in whatever form you wish (as a listener).

Oh yeah and I think the drums are fine and personally I don't think all that listening on other devices is necessary for my goals as a hobby home recorder :)

Didn't you whine about the vocals being too loud? How hard is it to turn on your speakers for 5 minutes? You are a piece of work Tony! :) 8)

So at this point you make a strange assumption. I actually mixed the whole song on speakers and I listened on headphones. Speakers and Headphones in the same room is different from "It is always a good idea to try many listening scenarios"

Again lots of very good music.

Enjoyed you and Albert's song and the way you broke it down into its component parts.

Well done everybody.

My condolences Dave.
