Today I finished the mixes for “Nobody Knows Me” and “Waiting”. I thought that “Waiting” would give me the most trouble mixing since it has layered vocals and several different guitar parts.

I put a high pass filter on the acoustic guitars to leave space for the electric guitars. Then I EQ’ed out some of the electric guitars some that each one had its own space.  I had each of the vocals panned to its own place in the stereo field. I decided to manually mute two of the vocals during the verses to accentuate the choruses. I used both the LexiconPCM 91 on the main vocals and the Lexicon MX 400 reverb unit on the background vocals to give them depth and so that the lead would have its own identity.
