Description
Thank you to some very helpful MJammers (Dadgar, Jiguma, Feter, Sigmund, Jibes, Drakonis and more..) suggestions about mixing and mastering, I am posting a remixed version of Trust. If you are interested in mixing and mastering, I'd love for you to listen and compare this version to the previously posted one:)

Lyrics
Intro/fill

Verse
Throw your doubts to the wind; open your heart to changes.
Just throw your doubts to the wind; and trust in fate.
The world is rich in luck; our deck of cards is loaded.
Only in doubt are we stuck; just let go and fly.

Solo (over verse)

Bridge
Two is more than none; just wish and you will have.
Choose a shining star and hold it in your hand.
You’re bright – a true light.
Shining bright - alight.

Verse
There’ll be no turning back to life of doubt.
There’ll be no thought astray... now you’ve found the way.
The mystery of simple life lies within all around.
The key to dreams often sought is easily found.

This sounds much better balanced than previous versions, with vocals and piano lead much more "in the mix". The main mixing suggestion now is really just to add a little "sparkle" to the backing instruments - you can do this in Ozone, or maybe even just a little high-end EQ boost on drums, strings and backing piano. I have to add that this is just a personal preference of mine rather than a "this is how you should do it" comment!

I think you've made really good progress from earlier versions. All that focus and work has paid off.

Looking forward to the next song.

Cheers from Oz,
Neil

Thank you so much for all of your help. I tried the sparkle and energize in Ozone and it sounds so good! As I still just have the demo version, it enters silence in every so often. I dream of buying it someday - it is just SO good. I will try a little high-end EQ boost on drums, strings and backing piano now and see how this affects the overall mix. Thanks again. I am really learning a lot thanks to people like you:)

Impressed
Not being at all versed in the dark arts of which other commentators have spoken, i will just say that i am impressed that you have had the courage to revisit a song and take advice about how to improve it with such good results.

Enjoyed it (again!)

Hey
Nice tune,
The piano and bass are working really well together and the vocals fit perfectly.
Nice choice of percussion I think it would benefit from the addition of a few little fills here and there to drive it from one section to the other but that's a minor touch.
Nice tune!

Thank you very much for your helpful comments:) I am really happy to hear that you think the bass line and piano are working well together, as this was one goal of my remix - to hear them equally! I would agree that some fills would help the song move from one section to another... something to have fun trying. Thanks again and all the best.

Agreed
the balance is better. Still hear the mic punches but they seem only in the start!

Thank you very much for your nice comments. Yes, the evil mic punches! I am so happy to have the 'pop screen' now. It makes a big difference. All in the learning curve, I guess. Thanks and all the best.
