Another crack at mixing some horns with guitar driven blues

Hey Everyone,

I've been playing around with the Horns virtual instrument in Logic again and come up with the attached track. What do people think? Is it a little too busy in places.. (?) I was going for a big-band blues funk kind of vibe.

- I used Bias Amp 2 for guitar amp simulation (I played all parts on a LP 2015 Traditional).

- Drums are a hybrid EZ drummer kit based on the drumkit from hell (-- I generally like this kit; has some nice choked crash sounds) but with the progressive snare and a less metal-sounding kick.

Wondering also if some subtle keys here and there could benefit the track..

Thanks for listening,

Ben.

Excellent work!

However, I would use more reverb on the horns to put them back in the mix. It will help them sound less predictable, especially when using the same jabs more than a few times in a sequence. It will help faux in a live sound.

Kudos on your programming.

Thanks audiokid for the feedback. Never quite got the hook when it comes to adding reverb. I seem to always over do it or simply not add enough. Will have a go with the horns again though! Cheers.
