I agree with Jerry and Joyce. As far as volume issues, you could try a little compression. It downs the highs and raises the lows. As far as your vocals....I am a captivated fan! In a professional recording studio, you would walk out with a recording contract! Terrific perfornance on this powerful song.....:-) Keith

Thank you for your advice! I am still working out the kinks in volume control...but I am slowly getting better with each recording. I really appreciate your kind words. Thanks again for listening :)

I am listening on a friend’s iPad, away from home, listening. This is totally professional. If I were to cherry pick, maybe the vocal could have a hair less volume in ratio to the music. I think in a studio, they have a way in mastering, that rounds it out....but really, I prefer the clarity of your voice to Adele’s. Subjective I realize

Thank you Joyce for your honest comments. Like I told Jerry below, I have a lot of issues when it comes to volume balance, and where I struggle the most. I was thinking the same thing, and I am glad you validated what I was thinking with your comment as that's what I was thinking as well....but I thought I was just being too overly critical. When I record, I listen to my recordings on about 4 different devices (computer speakers, car speakers, through earphones on my phone, and at work) just to test the volume and balance of the recording. I still don't quite know how to play with a couple features in Pro-Tools (like vocal comp for example), so I am going to take more lessons to learn :) I very much appreciate your listen, and I am happy that you left the honest critique you did. It will just help me get better :)

One last comment....the overall volume of your recording could have been 'punched up' somewhat to make it more powerful. Your mix is excellent between instruments and vocals IMHO. Love it...

Also, thank you for this, as I agree with you on the volume, and it was one thing I was wondering about. Your comment has validated what I was feeling. Its one of the parts of recording I really struggle with. I took some basic lessons on Pro-Tools, and now that I have some stuff down, I am going to go back and learn some more features to help with learning on how to control volume :) I appreciate your honesty and your critique.

Hi Ritisroo...sitting here waiting for my flight, I listened to your recording and then listened to the original by Adele on YouTube. If you had recorded this in the same $50 Million studio with three engineers working on every digital facet of your vocals, including all the 'cuts and paste' to make it as perfect as she sounds, then your recording would have been every bit as good as hers because this is all about the voice. For a home recording, yours is stunning. Your vocal quality is professional, including pitch, vibrato. timbre and passion. Superbly impressive... If a singer has the vocal quality, as you surely do, then the rest is just engineering executing the final product. This could have been your song...

Hi Jerry! Thank you so much for your kind words, it means a lot coming from your background! I know I am overly critical of myself, and try really hard to make quality recordings, so hearing this makes me feel good knowing I am on the right path :)
