I loved it, Gary - And I was trying to make myself promise not to get all techno in my feedback, buuuut, I gotta say that it was kind of like having Joplin's music playing back to me from 100 years ago it was so distant.
Thanks for putting up with me. I admire your work. I just long for that period when you were not using reverb plugins at 100% wet - why did you stop doing that-- ?
In my 1st post, I placed small values for all of the reverb. It was balanced,
but apparently too distant.
This (Sat) morning I used the next smaller room; slightly raised reverb values, and increased volume in the bass.
HI, Gary - Thanks for putting up with me. I really intend to not mention the reverb thing again - I Do remember a period when you were doing something different with your mixes so they weren't so ambient. But I'm embarrassed to keep beating the dead reverb horse. It Does get down to a matter of personal taste and you know I just happen to prefer almost All recordings to be less wet than the way people usually do them.
"...slightly raised reverb values..." I'm sure you mean the opposite, you lowered their values. When pumping music straight through a reverb instead of using Sends in a mixer, it is much harder to get good settings - But as has been said often on the Forum, a good starting point is about 70% dry, 30% wet. If the balance gets closer to 50/50--you start getting the Taj Mahal effect.
Take care, and just gnore the grumbling little man behind the curtain.
I like your arrangement here. It seems like we've had a bit of rag time on the forum lately - not that I'm complaining, I do enjoy it. One thing about this arrangement - it reminds me of the carnival. A lot of attractions use rag time arranged similar to this or with calliope sounds. Anyway, enjoyed this.
