    Hi Guy & Dan,

    an interesting piece, interesting arranged and mixed.

    What I miss a little is some warmth and deph in the mix, especially warmth in her voice. What mike and compressor have you used?

    Best,

    Thanks!

    I never met the soprano, it was all done via internet, her name is Jillian Goldin, which reminds me I'll add her name on the post. She did it from her home, I had done the mix initially but Dan did a much better job.

    We don't know what kind of mic was used, and no compressor of any kind was used.

    Personally, I don't miss any warmth in her voice, it sounds extremely pleasant and natural to me.

    If you are talking about depth, I assume you mean reverb.
    It is pointless to discus the use of reverb here since we could spend a life-time choosing a reverb. Guy and I agreed that this song should be in a theater type setting, rather than a huge concert hall, and I believe that goal has been accomplished.

    My old Lexicon 200 still sounds awesome, but we have so much more control over actual placement with Altiverb,... it still thrills me every time I use it.
    I am pleased with the mix.

    I think anything that would drift away from this mix would become a personal preference. But I'm still interested in hearing your preferences, because when I like it I think it's worth re-mixing.

    Dan & Guy,

    don`t get me wrong!

    Guy and I agreed that this song should be in a theater type setting, rather than a huge concert hall, and I believe that goal has been accomplished.
    Dan, I did not know this when I read Guys first post here.

    So I told you both what I was thinking about it.


    Guy, I have never mixed such music, but please listen here:

    http://www.box.net/shared/yxy2a5226z

    Here I have remixed your mp3 file in the way of MS processing mode. Shure, decoding mp3 into wav, mixing them and than coding them back into mp3 damages Dan`s pretty mix, precence is lost . But here you can hear into the direction how I have had presented the voice in my head.

    To show you exactly how I would mix it I would need your original audiofiles or perhaps a Cubase projet, if you have . You can send it to me via "sendit" to gunther@metaphon.de .

    I never would say that I can do a better mix than our master Dan, I only mix sometimes otherwise.

    Best,

    Gunther

    Gunther,

    Thanks for your comments and the mp3, always appreciated.

    I'm not ruling out the idea of experimenting with a bigger hall, but the current mix sounded good to me. I'd like to hear what others think of that. I'm no expert on acoustics so feedback always helps. Bigger hall? Yes? No?

    Gunther,
    your version has an excessive EQ boost between 200 and 400 hz.,


    To me, there is no comparison between the two.

    AB comparison..
