First off all, thank you so much HOFA for this contest. The audio takes were incredible, and so were the composition and arrangements on this song. It was a lot of fun to mix, even if now my roomates hates me for singing it all day long.
With sush quality material, and with sush good arrangemetn, the most difficult thing was to choose a direction to go in.
I was particularly appealed by the footstomp sound. It remind me this roomy organic rythmic sound you can find in We Will Rock You, or Apple Pie of the Rafferty and most recently Legend by The Score.
I wanted to build an hybrid between this heavy rock sound and a more clean and soulful sound for the vocals reminding the original christmas Carols.
I don't know if you will judge that i reach my goal, but I wish you to enjoy the listening.
--> Mixed on protools 2019 with UAD, Waves and stock plugins.
-->Clean sund (vocals and bass) mainly mixed with SSL + LA2A
--> Rock sound mainly mixed with 1073, SSL E, and 1176.
Many thanks to all the people who organise and build this challenge.
