Recorded this on an Ipad with Auria Pro. Mics used were Neumann BCM104 - Vox, AT4051 / BCM 104 on Ac Guitar, Banjo, & Dobro, Bass direct through Bellari Pre, Vox and Guitar / Dobro / Banjo through T L Audio 5051 Ivory Series.

I just ordered a Warm Audio Tone Beast and will be re tracking vox so what is there now is a scratch track.

Love this tune. I think the vocal needs some EQ, though. Highpass setting higher. Cut some low mids. Same old thing. Backing vocal ditto. They're too dark right now. Maybe a bit of air around 8K - slight parametric boost. Great tune, great tune.

Oh wow, I love this, Jim, even with the slightly pitchy vocals (to me it adds immense charm). I would have preferred a B3 in lieu of the string synth - just a personal preference. Oh and real sax would be stellar! Where's Lt Bob when you need him?

Your vocals have a warm timbre that I think is great, and you make singing seem effortless. Great tone on the Strat, I really dig the out of phase switch position.

Thanks for the comments guys! I am going to re do the vocals so hopefully they will be better. I think I may track vox with a ribbon mic to add some smoothness to my crappy voice. Smile

You don't have a crappy voice. It works a treat for this tune. It sounds good, and what Frank said about intonation is true.

I think I addressed the nits. I tried a vocal with a ribbon mic and it sounded terrible so I used the Neumann BCM104 but this time the mic pre was a Warm Audio Tone Beast.

Pristine recording! Reverb is just right. This is great. Classic sounding with the quality of modern recording.

The music all sound pretty decent and well performed. Maybe a bit too much low mid presence on the lead guitar.

Vocally, I think you are tracking too close to the mic, thus, the proximity build up. The second mix has a better airy timbre to the voice, but it still sort of suffers from too much proximity on the mic.

Maybe roll back a tad of that clicky eq on the kick drum is the only other thing I can think of.
