A10, time to share

A10 is a motorway in France, driving from south-west to the center of the world which Paris is💁.
Thanks to Ardour, it took somehow an hour to make it.
I then, came to Mixbus and have the feeling that I over compressed, trying to make this sort of tune sound like an ACDC cover.
I am sorry.
Maybe next time, I will stay under Ardour and won’t compress at all.
Savarez, french brand of strings, was enough keen to send me some sets of strings to try them.
I was clutched on D’Addario’s but I think I will make the switch.
As usual, it is a « one take » stuff.
Not the first one but the second, if I put away the takes which are going out before the first bar , but I think, lots of musicians who are « self recording » are aware of this pitfall.
Anyway, thanks to Ardour being so reliable, and thanks to everyone who will give an ear… or not!

Merci beaucoup.

Maybe the compression: I started listening on crap computer speakers, then switched to fairly hi-fi headphones. Sounded less crap than expected on the speakers, and less dynamic than I would like on the headphones.

Hello,
thank you for listening and for your feedback.
Yes, it feels as if the sound was « squashed ».
Next time, I will have a light hand with compression, wondering if this kind of tune requires any?
