Phosphour Re-mastered (w_Skean)

Description
Given my ham-fisted attempts at sound engineering, my good friend Kenta was kind enough to take my GB files from the original Phosphour and re-master it for me. He also added some cool percussion, a bass line, and some creative editing to flesh it out more completely.

It's amazing what the difference in sound is now, especially the lead guitar tone. Nobody can accuse it of being thin sounding now.

Great job Kenta!

Neat mixing job, Kenta...
It certainly ends up having phenomenal presence all around, and each guitar ends up having its own space...

Great lesson in what mixing and mastering can do for the basic musical goods...

Thanks ED
It sure was a good lesson... I have purchase GB 08 and also tryout SoundStudio3. So I think it was a good idea to try it and in the same time help my friend Pete a little... I'm glad you liked the result.

Take care

Seems to have done the trick
Seems like people agree, Kenta really knows his way around a mixer/eq/compressor. What a huge difference between this and the orginal.

Thanks for giving me something to shoot for Kenta. There is a world of improvement in my engineering technique that you've opened my eyes to.

Ya
I really like the upfront percussion and especially the picking guitar is so much forward and clean.

Way to go!

More cowbell!!
Just kidding. I didn't like the cowbell and I didn't think the drums fit very well (too many fills and the stereo spread seemed too wide). The guitars sounded fantastic though!! Put some real drums on this (no offense Kenta) and I think the song would gel much better.

It's cool
But forget that drums just focus on the guitars man THEY is the thing I really love... Cheers

Very definite
improvement... For my personal taste I would bring the electric guitar down slightly and pan it maybe left a few. Just my personal taste!

this, a good feeling of instruments playing!

Clipping?
Hey Skean,
I love the mix, but couldn't help hearing some clipping?
Back in the day of old analog boards, some soft clipping really warmed up the sound and made it feel big, but in the digital recording world, clipping just makes static sounds (like white noise).

Is it my headphone speakers, or did your level meters show red clipping?

A Hit!
Killer brother. Very great instrumental piece. I enjoyed it a lot.... I have in mind couple of pieces in that style but unfortunately no time to record and no real good equipments.. This is killer!!

nice solo
Love the guitar. Very emotional, the melody is bittersweet and deep. it's incredible, but a human voice could never pull this sort of thing off.
Really nice!

Thanks for kind words
Glad you found it moving, it's probably the best compliment one can get about their performance. While I admit the human voice could never emulate this, there is no doubt that it could emote just as well if not better.

Just not my voice!

Arrgh!!
I am trying to be more critical in my assessment of songs here on MJ, instead of being supportive and stuff...that being stated, this song is way too short!! Just as I was settling into my computer work with this tune pumping in my headphones, the song just stopped. Just like that. I thought I lost my connection to the internet! I want more of this tune! The guitar was talking to me in this song and I wanted to hear more about it's journey. Another 2 and a half minutes would suffice me!!

Too short
I agree, it barely qualifies as a tune at this length. Glad it left you wanting more though!

Thanks for the listen and the critique. And sorry about the internet connection scare!
