Great job! I think I got a beach tan just listening to that one! Nice effects on the vocals. Loved it.

The level of the vocals needs to be increased; they're sitting far too back in the mix. When listening through headphones they have a tendency of being swamped by the bass, which is itself far too forward, causing overall muddiness. I made this evaluation listening through my Yamaha monitors and Beyerdynamic DT880 Pro headphones, which have a pretty flat frequency response.

Incidentally, your voice sounds very much like Donald Fagan from Steely Dan.

Thanks for the input Ian. I'm just back to re-learning Mixcraft and recording in general so this is helping me learn. I've been told I sound like a number of different singers but never Donald Fagen lol.

Cheers!
