After the question a few posts ago I did a little experiment with "3D"ing Edge's Guitar(s) for The Fly. Edge is double-tracked with the 2 tracks panned hard left and right. "Second Edge" is delayed by around 37ms to get that surround sound and both are slightly up in volume against the rest.
As a song it doesn't sound better, but the effect is interesting as it sort of pulls Edge out of the mix, like he's on top of it instead of in it..
I don't share usually share the non-U2 mixes I try on this forum, but thought this was an interesting idea. I mixed 'Stoned Love' by The Supremes into 'I Wanna Be Adored' by The Stone Roses. The first is the intro song they came on stage with, 2nd the opening song live.
Any ideas for a U2 'variant' of this? They came on stage to many songs but not sure what fits and would be thematically interesting..

The title of the song Hawkmoon 269 came from a place U2 passed by during the Conspiracy of Hope tour called Hawkmoon. The number 269 stands for the amount of mixes the song needed before it was ready, it took the band three weeks to record.
