Michael, I’m so sorry it took me so long to respond to your mastering of my track. Things have been a bit crazy around here.

I downloaded the track (nice job!) and posted it here:
https://soundcloud.com/gavin-sinclair-5/if-you-only-knew-mastered-by-michael/s-dssFu

The original can be found here:
https://soundcloud.com/gavin-sinclair-5/if-only-you-knew-featuring-jenny-stokes

I’m going to wait to comment until other folks, who are not so close to the song, have had a chance to listen and comment.

Hi Michael. I’m sorry nobody has commented, so I’ll go ahead and post what I thought. It seemed to me that your master was more mellow, while the original is brighter and clearer. Both have their good points. Since I have been working with this song for so long, it’s impossible for me to judge which is “better.” I think someone with a fresh ear might be better able to judge.

Hey Gav,

Sorry it took so long to take a listen and comment, but I finally did get a round to it (or tuit).  Seems Michaels master is a little more mellow than the original.  Just my opinion, with this song Michaels master sounds better, the original was too sharp/bright and goes against the mood of the song.  Congrats Michael and Gav, best wishes,

Speak soon

Thanks Ron. Interesting that you should say that. Michael’s master is closer to my earlier versions. I remastered it when I got Izotope Ozone Elements, basing it on a preset called “General Clarity.” I was trying to avoid a trace of “muddiness” that can creep in when you get all mellow.
It would be interesting to hear what others have to say. Since it’s Jenny’s voice, maybe we will hear straight from the horse’s mouth? (In case she takes that the wrong way, I should make clear that I am referring to a thoroughbred, the Black Beauty-Piebald hybrid that canters gracefully o’er the fields and hedgerows of SW101, musical mane flying in the wind.)

With my master, I went for warm ambience, to preserve that “country” sound.  Yet, it is plenty loud.  It has reverb, chorus, several EQ tweaks, and 4 stage compression with a limiter.

Michael, would it be possible to send me the track as an MP3? I want to listen to it on my iPhone and I can’t do that with a .wav file.

I think you succeeded as far as the warm ambience is concerned.

I am pretty sure that you can listen to it on Soundcloud, if you have already uploaded it, but here it is…

You’re right, of course. I can listen on SoundCloud on my iPhone. It didn’t occur to me because I hardly ever use the ap on my phone because of a very annoying bug that SoundCloud never gets around to fixing. It only affects files that have been updated at least once, though, so there’s no reason I can’t listen to this there. Sorry :)

No, it’s ok.  I made a 320 MP3.  I didn’t know that about Soundcloud.  I do not have a cell phone.
