My best recording to date - Hardcore/Melodic

Hey guys, I haven't been recording long but I've worked with this band for a while and I think this is the best overall mix I've got so far, let me know what you think -

http://soundcloud.com/forevergrace/forever-grace-deceived

Obviously a long way to go to compared to most of the stuff posted on this forum by our more experienced members, any feedback and critique would be appreciated!

Thanks,

James.

The vox sound pretty damn good. I feel like the snare transient is being compressed, so maybe use a clipper/transient designer and/or extend the comp attack.

Turn the vox down, turn the bass up and you're good.

Thanks, I'll try to get it poking through the mix a bit more - maybe the vocals are masking it slightly by being too loud as well

Thanks, the drums are all Slate. I combined a couple of snares and kicks, just played around until i found combinations that seemed to suit the song. Then just some EQ, bus compression, and limiting!

sounds cool, but i miss a bit of high end in the guitars... especially when the high overdub guitar comes in, it gets a bit muddy imho

Damn nice mix. I'd try for a more raw sounding snare though. Personally, I really like the dream snare for this kinda stuff.

Thanks MisSigsFan, I haven't had time to delve into all the slate snares yet actually, I'll give that one a go!
