    Here is a collaboration I have been working on with a collegue in the US
    Its a cover of Floyds' Speak To Me / Breathe / On The Run

    You may notice a little artistic license with this one, it is only a first draft and as its 1:38am in the morning here Sydney time I have only used cans so not to wake the household up

    I would appreciate any feedback / thoughts from members

    I can't claim credit for those great vocals, they go to my partner in this project, Dan, based in Oregon.
    He has a great voice and thats his natural vocals with just some 'verb and some actual vocal double tracking I believe, not a vocal doubling processor, and no pitch correction whatsoever.
    I have been encouraging him to check out RO and extolling the virtues of this great medium (y)(y)(y)

    Nice job on the song...Rhythm Guitars a bit loud or at the very least could use some volume automation and the drums sit a bit far back in the mix.

    Talk about a bolt from the blue...

    An FM radio DJ from South Australia has picked up on this collaboration I did with Kogwonton and has requested to use it to end his show, and wants to interview me live on air before he plays the track

    "I'd like to thank all my fans in South Australia...lol";)

    The mix is pretty good but there seems to be quite a midrange buildup. A 1 octave 10dB cut at 700Hz made it sound better to me. I added a little overall gain to compensate for the eq cut. It's an mp3 of an mp3 so there will be some loss but it should be good enough.
