What I'm trying to do in the rough mix here is to let the song speak as it was recorded, and try not to put any "artistic stamp" on it at all, just get a decent basic rough mix going in about an hour or so.
I may get back to this later on with some more advanced mixing techniques like attacking frequency masking with EQ, maybe a bit more compression, some track doubling and those kind of things that happen after the rough mix. On a track like this I'd probably spend 3-4 hours total, writing automation, EQ'ing tracks and FX, whatever.
Hope this is helpful to some newbies. Most others won't see anything particularly useful there. Here's a link to the rough mix...

Here's where I got that project from. There's lots of stuff there to practice on. This song is listed there under pop/rock from a band called Leaf.

You were right though....the more I played with it, the more it did grow on me and I'm really digging it now; it kind of reminds me of Live actually, which I fell in love with years ago.
Anyway, just finished watching your video series and it was very helpful and being that I'm still familiarizing myself with it, I learned more than a few tricks/tips from you that I'll definitely put into use. So thanks so much for taking the time out to do that and sharing it with everyone....it's very much appreciated! Kudos!

Seems like this sale has caused a lot of heart ache's at cakewalk as this thread http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.aspx?m=2497811 is locked and the law laid down from on high not to discuss Studio One 2 on their Forum http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.aspx?m=2497537.Any one else notice this.
I'm not getting as much from sonar as I get out of S1 2 these days. I think I'll pass on Sonar X2 as I'm quite at home with this new puppy of a DAW.

Maybe. I actually didn't pay that much attention to it, just trying to get through it. In all honesty I'm not much of a "music producer" so unless something is just really obviously out of tune I'll just mix what's there.
