THIS TRACK DELETED – FINAL VERSION NOW AT SOUNDCLOUD… WILL BE POSTING IT ON MLK Day!!!! (Jan 18)
Here’s what I wrote at SoundCloud for this…

Martin Luther King’s “I have a dream” speech (abridged) set to original soundtrack… my challenge is to use entirely free VST plugins.. so theoretically, anyone with a half decent computer could do something like this.
I’ve been experimenting with compressors, limiters, EQ, and expanders.. learning as i go along… would like to get a clean, balanced but also punchy version by MLK day (Jan 20). Can’t really tell how it’s going to sound until I upload it here, because SoundCloud takes the wav file and renders it into mp3. At least, I think it does… :)

Thanks to those who liked my previous versions. I really appreciate the feedback. Negative feedback would be welcome too, as long as it talks about the music and isn’t just a bunch of expletives!
I had to delete the earlier versions. I’ve learned so much in the past few days that I can better see (and hear) how to improve it. This mix seems a bit too boxy. I was trying to level it out. Maybe went a bit too far. Not sure. Will have to take a drive and listen to it then. Everything becomes clear behind the wheel…
