Description
Peter let me have the pleasure of doing an alternate mix of his Before the Maps Were Made: http://www.macjams.com/song/82983
I took a 'drier' approach and hopefully tamed the bass a tad.

Tried
keeping things down to earth, Steve. I don't like using a lot of plugins and fx outside the basics: eq, compression, and light saturation. Going beyond that starts sounding too processed and digitally--unless it's on purpose for effect.

Like it should have...
Really appreciate you taking an interest, and the time, to tidy my bass heavy mix up, Sam. Great job. Sounds like it should have, now. Take care, my friend. Talk soon.

And
I'll be hoping to hear from you. When I said it was a pleasure, that wasn't to be nice. I really meant that.

A more "together" mix to my ears. Interesting to hear what you've done here, Sammy.

It felt
cool doing a "non-production" mix and just concentrating on *real* sounds since I use so much midi at times. Thx Philip.

Nicely done Sam.The bass is perfect. The percussive elements are synced nicely and this is a really good song. Peter's vocals are clear and pure even with the effect on the oohs....

All vocal
fx are Peter's, you can just hear them more clearly now. All I did was add some slight verb on the oohs to set them apart. Peter did offer to send me the dry unaltered stems, which I originally expected (he and I already discussed this), but I'd already finished mixing and needed to complete another 'project' with someone from my DAW forum. But yeah, I like absolutely raw stems, they're much easier to fit into a mix.

Good song? One of his very best. I still can't get it out of my head from time to time.

Good job, Sam and Peter
It sounds very natural, just as intended. The hook is even hookier!

You added a new flavor and dimension, but didn't overdo it. And the song (which was already great) sounds even better now. Very nice job. Cheers.

I
enjoyed doing this so much that I did it in one sitting the next day after Peter uploaded the files. Then checked in with Peter and made any suggested changes (I originally had a little too much verb on the oohs and Peter wisely, and constructively asked that I tone it down. Glad he caught that before I "released" it. It was indeed too much.) After a few more suggested minor fixes, up she went (well after a little trouble uploading which Simon took care of). Thanks man!

Lovely mix
I have had the hook line from this tune in my head for days which is surely the sign of a good song. A definite download. Credit to you both. cheers Mark

Usually
after mixing a song, I've heard it so much that the last thing I want to do is think about it or hear it again--at least after some space. Couldn't do that with this one.

Curse you Red-Peter!!!

Glad you listened HS.

Your mixing skills
are well exhibited herein. Although i really liked the original, your "drier" approach actually works better. A great tune kicked up a notch...

Be well friend!

Cal. Maybe the mix got better, but certainly not the song.

Now that's more what I was hearing on "Maps" Sam. The first eight or so bars of bass seem to be still a bit loud to me though.
Nice mix.
Cheers from Oz,

Hey Vic
Yeah, I'm used to mixing music with an electric bass, but I have to remember not to be so "punchy" when it comes to a more acoustic style. It doesn't 'demand' it, esp with an acoustic bass sound.

Thx Sig.
It was kinda cool to change up a bit. In ways, that 'experience' will help me in the future. That's why I appreciate versatility. Different links can connect to a better whole.

Nice mix. The dry mix takes me back a long while to some of the folk songs and their intimate feel in the recordings due to low verb. Sounds great!

Thanks Doug!
I didn't think Peter needed a lot of production for this song, so I was inspired exactly by what you stated: "an intimate feel."
