Christmas 2020 Mix Part 2 (version 'go')

I really liked how this mix turned out for the most part, but there were parts that didn't sound as good as I wanted, and since then I've learned some techniques to better control my sound (mostly covered by Baphometrix in their Clip-To-Zero video).

Several months (on and off) of fiddling, and I think this one is finally good enough to warrant a re-release.

Publication note:

Yo,

This is Part 2 of my so-called 'Christmas Mix' from like a year ago (Part 1 was done by 2020-12-25, but Part 2 wasn't done until like the following summer). I had put off publishing because RPT (the track that starts at 22:48) was not sounding as cool as it should have, and I wanted to get that fixed, first. So I spent some time wrangling RPT (that task was complicated by a Reason upgrade changing the sound), and then as long as I was updating this mix, remastered everything else, repeatedly listening too loud on my car speakers while driving on the interstate to find all the harsh resonances that needed taming. Vital 2140 got significant de-muddification, and I was especially careful to keep the punchiness and general vibe of Minstr Test (17:12) and the transition that follows it while raising the overall loudness of each part to get the whole mix sounding a bit more consistent and polished.

Maybe now I can move on to other things.

Enjoy,
- TOGoS
