Completed the sound level adjustments from this earlier version. Here’s version 2.0:
STROKE OF MIDNIGHT v2.0

What I did differently from version 1:
- Raised the lead guitar track levels.
- Created another layer from Adrian’s original riff, and adjusted the EQ settings to make his rhythm guitar part stronger.
- Around the 1min 10sec mark: Added a short lead and clean guitar pan effect, and a different beat.
- Miscellaneous adjustments along the track to avoid clipping.
- Imported the uncompressed file to Audacity, adding a compression effect (I was trying to see if it would help in normalising the track) and exporting it as a 24-bit WAV file. I think it does. Listen to the difference – here’s Version 1:
One down, eight more to go.
