Thanks Max, I'm happy with my mix as my first serious attempt at mixing anything since Heavy Metal bands at uni! I was going for a more mellow feel and in some ways was disappointed that the band wanted to funk it up (and cranked the tempo 4bpm), but have to accept that working with other musicians.
I think Adrian's mix is excellent he's a real pro, he travels the world demoing kit for a very high profile audio interface company and prior to that did the same job for the company that own ProTools so really knows his stuff. We've been working together a lot over the last year and are beginning to find a sound. I think also his mix is with live instruments rather than ones I've programmed which helps the dynamics.
Still all in all I'm very pleased with the result and it's been good to force myself into songwriting again, which I'm enjoying immensely (when I can make time.)
