So bass should come down or just in parts? The solo string is okay right, you mean the side panned strings throughout? I am going to try to redo those parts and play something different. I think there are a couple drum crashes at end I will volume down and I want the chorus vocals to not get too loud compared to verses, I have a compressor on them but need to figure out bringing down the max volume thresh hold- any other thoughts? Thanks for all the help, I think the mix is getting much better and I am learning a lot- much appreciation for your time everyone!
