Here's my take on this classic Kinks tune. I consider this a work in progress as I may want to edit where I double up the vocals and add something else instead. Anyway, I don't see many tunes posted by this great band so I hope you all enjoy this.

Edit: Thanks, Porty. I cleaned up the vocal tracks and reuploaded the file. I think I'll leave it be as I donut think I could mix the vocals any better.

Nice one mate - this is a massive song to attempt and you did good. the vocal levels are a little high at the end but nothing a small tweak wouldn't fix. :thumb:

Thanks a lot, linda! I hoped you grabbed the edited version :lol:

I'm glad you enjoyed this and thanks for the comps on the vocals. I have to try 200% harder to nail those tracks than any other instrument.

it that acoustic done using fruity loops? if so it sounds pretty good. The mix is well sorted now and sounds good mate. I know how much work you put into your stuff nad that is inspirational to me. It was you that introduced me to plugins and mixing - I didn't even know cubase had plugins until late last year hahaha. Thanks mate and keep them coming :thumb:

Porty, good ear! This track was a midi originally. I removed all the shit tracks and kept a piano, drums, and a piano doing acoustic. I switched the drums to ns_free, the piano I switched for a Steinway, and Ovation acoustic for the latter. I then added bass, electric guitar and vocals. Viola! I still think the mix could be better but I am not feeling so well to fart with it any more. I played hooky from work today cuz I wasn't feeling well. :icon_neut
