  1. Not too bad.

    It sounds to me like the lead guitar (to his left) is heard mostly during the aggressive lines stuff and I can’t hear the ribbon at these times, presumably due to the mixer. I can hear the ribbon’s Otamotone style nasal patch during the free meter portions just fine though. Is that the patch he’s using throughout all and it’s just metered down when the lead is doing stuff? It would be cool, IMO if ribbon would try a different patch at times and play counterpoint to the lead, with the mixer not pulling it down so much at those times.
