I spent this Summer with the "Segobriga" Pink Floyd project and also producing this album, "Año X", by Travis Birds.

Recorded and mixed with Ardour.

Here's a video of one of the songs:

Very nice song and video :-) Post some details on instruments and effects you used. I like the foreground pop-py vocals :)

Great! What is the processing of the vocals? (compressing, reverb etc.)

Nice mixing. I think lead voice is too in-your-face, but in overall the sound is good and solid. Keep on rocking!

So glad you like it!!
In this particular song there's bass, guitars, two drumsets and some Hammond. And of course harmonized vocals, which I always use a lot. Oh, a "secret weapon" I used a lot through the album is a high-strung acoustic guitar.
About effects I don't use a lot, I like to keep things natural sounding, specially when the sound is good by itself, like Travis' voice. Some compressor (SC4), some EQ (MkII) and some (not much) reverb. That's it.

Great song and great recording. Amazing that you didn't use any plugins, just the hardware devices.
