    Default Need help from discerning ears -- Whitesnake/Sykes content

    I have 3 mixes right here. They are excepts from the Whitesnake classic Still of The Night. I'd like you guys to pick what you think sounds the best. These are the exact same dry tracks reamped through different rigs. The stereo right tracj remains the same while the stereo left track is mixed differently with each file.







    Personally I prefer the second mix, but that may be just me.

    Made a fourth mix that should make the guitars clearer

    As somebody who not only discerning ears but is also (apparently) OCD and not to mention a perfectionist: 3 for sure.

    Try double tracking twice, panning wide L & R, then running all 4 tracks through some very mild stereo chorus (slight delay between L and R).

    Like so:
