    The songs are: Hurricane - Original

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thanks!

    It is louder !
    I thought the transients could have been preserved a little more but it's a nice job ;)

    I had time to listen to it again but this time in the studio. One thing that wasn't sure when I first listened to it but now I can confirm is that when the lead vocal hit hard, the compression acts on the whole track and this makes the band go down. This is one thing I wound try to avoid. I know the problem may come from the mixing. But you may try side compression, slower attack or multibands to reduce this effect.
    My humble opinion of course. ;)

    Thanks for checking it out again. I'm not sure if that's in the mix or my limiter. I will see what I can do with it if it's on my end.
