I'm not completely satisfied with the mix yet but gonna catch some sleep now^^

Here's my first try:
http://rapidshare.com/files/12620845...k-mix.mp3.html

Still needs some tweaking to make it nicer, like toms, overheads, hihat and bass.

I do some composing as well so I know how much time and effort is put into something like that. Details on your DAW and what VST's you used? Were all the notes clicks in or do you have keys?

I guess a lot of it comes from the master bus compressor.
It's a G-comp with 10ms and automatic release, about 3db reduction.

I'm not sure if these settings are the best for this song, I'm getting nice punch with 30ms and faster release as well, especially on the groove part at the end, gonna remix it when vocals come in ;-)

I didn't have to do alot on the Bass DI track, was a good recording from the start, just some minor EQ and compression on the lows and some LP-filtering, nothing special. I didn't even sidechain the kick to the bass, just used Andys kick sample and focused the bass on nearby frequencies surrounding the kick, works pretty well imho.

Damn. I was really hoping for DI's.

**increased sadness**.

Regardless. I'll get cracking.

Always jump at the chance to mix real drums.

You need to convert them during export to 24/44.1 for everyone to have a change to mix!!

That will do until the vocals arrive. And I'll start editing. haven't done any on this just a quick mix. hence why some of the triggering is off.

If you use Foobar 2000 (or a dozen other ways) you can batch convert them to 24 bit.

I used the East West Symphonic Orchestra VST Plugin with the sequencer within Fruity Loops Studio 8 and just composed everything within that. How about you? What do you use?
