Nic one 58mark, I've only had a quick listen on PC speakers but it sounds good. :)

thanks! I'll take that. I'm not going to say this project has been harder than I thought it would be, but I'm more than ready to call it a day and move along.

I want to thank you all for your help with the effects, the reverb especially made such a huge difference, I went out and bought a reverb unit for using live (we've never had one before)

In many ways it gets easier with practice (as with most things). In particular, as you get to know your way round the software you can spend more time editing and less time looking for which button to press. Having said that, good audio editing is a complex skill - I've been doing it for many years and I still enjoy the challenge.
Have a good Christmas,
Steve

Sounds a pretty good mix to me too, I just had a listen to your YT Creekbend link - most enjoyable.

You can tell when you did a good job when it "seems" like "all you did" was stick a microphone out in front of a live performance and walked away with a terrific recording.

Reality is a little more involved than that.

This is what leads people to try and record rock concerts from their camcorder.

Thanks, for everything

I'm not a great singer by any stretch, but if I pick my spots when I open my mouth, I can be useful. Lol

That's the vocal equivalent of my claim that I play at the piano. Koz

How long did the video editing take?
