Portfolio: Lewis & Clarke – The Silver Sea (Mix)

With this mix my aim was to keep compression to a minimum and give the track a sense of depth – it was crying out for lots of reverb!

The whole vibe of this track is just great and I love having some real strings to work with, not something I see every day. It also helps that they were recorded incredibly well, thank you again Weathervane you never fail to impress! the way I tried to approach the strings was to try to treat them as one entity, rather than each individual. I split them into mids/highs and low string sections to stop it going all muddy and just used some gentle EQ and compression to give them some glue but still let them breath.

Have a listen and let me know what you think!
