Mixing with Samplitude - You & Me & The Radio
I've been doing this for a while. Once or twice a year, I like to download free tracks and mix them. It gives me a chance to adapt to different recording qualities and mind set. I mostly mix my own stuff, so I think it's a good exercise to do.. If you want to join me, download the tracks and send me links to your mixes.

Disclaimer, I'm not a mastering engineer, I don't have the space and tools and I wouldn't pretend being one..
This is only a sample to help us realize what happens to our mix when a ME work on it.

This is an attempt at mastering while explaining the process and using only Samplitude plugins..
Tell me what you think ! (remember I'm not a ME ! ;)
My main missing things are
Having long peak holds on the spectrum analyser.
