Awesome tonality. Great mixing too. Lovely and quirky songwriting, I love this! This is a wonderful little testament/tribute for how hard Tim P works to deliver such awesome tools for us to use!!

Hey Ritchie! thank you very much! coming from you. dedicated and passionated music and mixing lover :) yes Tim's stuff is always fun to use and sounds awesome. I know a lot more about audio now than when I started this project. If I would have recorded this project with a better room, better mics and preamps. in 96k using tim's stuff at 96 I'm sure it would have even more depth and details. but I'm happy :)

Do you have some critics and feedback on this mix that I could improve since you have great ears and tastes :)

I would appreciate it!
keep up the passion for nebula :)

I would say don't worry about high sample rates but that my opinion. I feel a better tightness at 48khz but that's just me! Your doing a great job already. :D

I agree with Tim, but my opinions on sample rates are not always popular....lol. I don't even mess with 48kHz unless someone asks or if it's using more complex and largely acoustic (real, not midi) sources like an entire jazz band or orchestra. Other than that, for what you are doing, I think the only benefit you will get using higher sample rates would be that you might feel better about it....Sonically I bet that you'd never know. In fact, I have submitted things to different uses as 96kHz because they said it mattered, but I converted that from the lower sample rate that i worked in....lol, they said that they could tell the difference and thanked me...I only did this as my own experiment. For the official record, I always do whatever people ask me (and pay me) to do. But that taught me alot about perception and bias, for sure.
You are already doing fine work, just keep loving music and keep making music! Any "critique" is just an opinion, I think.

track / mix all is okay... like it very much. just for my taste there is way toooo much Reverb.

Perhaps use it only parallel on sends and make these more subtile.

But this is always a sort of personal taste i think. Others might love the reverbs going on ;) Of course they sound very real / authentic.

yes, different tastes :D
i especially like the way you made it spacious and big with reverb.
there are so many depth levels that make it really interesting to hear.

great song and mix! reminds me of pink floyd at some points ...
