  • Received so much more than I had asked for and could not have been happier!!
  • Excellent job Clay, this plate sounds lovely. Real reverbs make such a big difference to me because I just don't have to fight with them, they sit in the mix in a far more natural way. It's worth $30 to save me an hour of frustration. On another note it is exciting to see what another set of ears will do with your material, I deliberately avoided giving mix files because I want to get something back that inspires me to change what I'm doing. It becomes mire interactive that way.
