I’ve been working on this for a while. The past few days it’s been a mastering exercise, which I actually like more than composing.
I tried a popular commercial demo (Ozone 8) for mastering but its presets never really made this sound right, and it was too resource heavy to be of any real use to me with my modest computer.
So I switched back to freeware and did my best to make this breathe without losing clarity.
Dedicated to Avicii who continues to inspire.
