(no subject)

So I'm mixing and mastering Cex's new CD 'TALL DARK AND HANDCUFFED' -- he sent me the instrumentals and the vocals as separate stereo files and i'm combining them. This feels like a momentous responsibility, not just because I want to do right by Rjyan but because I think the CD will have commercial potential, so it's my biggest mastering job yet.

So I've over-obsessed a bit on the setup, and ended up redoing it several times. I think I have it right but .... maybe over-analyzing it too much.... it's really a challenge to get that vocal/instrumental balance right.
