Hi Arthur,
I cutted out the first few seconds. Cuts like these are part of the mastering process for me. Should be allowed. Or not???

Anybody is going to cut out the first 9-10 seconds of silence ?
Or it isn't allowed ?
I believe we are supposed to master as if for release on CD & streaming. Cutting dead space is part of the job. I typically leave between 0.3 - 0.5 seconds of silence before the audio starts and about one second of silence at the end. That tends to work well when mastering for CD using standard pre-gap times.

Here is my version:

MP3

WAV

I have used SirAudioTool's StandardEq, MAutoDynamicEq, Airwindows BusColors - Used Vive with only a slight increase, Sonic Anomaly Unlimited at the end of the chain. YouLeanMeter on the final, ended up with around -14 LUFS.

DAW - Reaper.

Usually I run out of patience with longer tracks but this one is quite different. It's goes through different sections like multiple stories woven together. It gets more and more interesting as it progresses. Never got bored, loved it.
