Great share!

Just goes to show the importance of layering and how the total is always greater than the sum of the parts (many of the backing tracks cannot really be heard at all in the mix but are obviously still working to contribute to the overall sound).

I saw this, too. I never really believed that subtle elements can be noticed, so I never really added them when making music, but it might be worth a shot!

I just wish this guy wouldn't sing outside his fitting range. Especially not when he played solo vocals from a god before. I understand, educational stuff, but gee...

Layering so much stuff though. Well, better shape less sounds, until they deliver. But that's just my opinion.
