Really good DM multi to mix

Just finished an EP for these guys.
Final mix revisions tomorrow but this is pretty much the finished mix.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/2133088/Veins_Of_The_Earth.mp3

Here is the full multi if you want to mix it.

https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B1E...3hlVDEyTVdtVDQ

It's on google docs (sorry).
If anyone can suggest a better place to host it I will upload again.
Lots of hardware EQ and compression on the way in.
All live drums with triggers.
Guitar and bass amp and DI tracks included too.
Tempo and notes included.
Any questions just ask.

Michael

So this is my first post here, and it's also my first attempt at mixing DM Here's my final mix.

http://soundcloud.com/jack-fitchett/veins-of-the-earth-death-metal

I don't have proper monitors so this is primarily a headphone mix.

I think you have over EQed everything.
This was tracked with EQ and compression so should fit together without much work.
Try getting an overall balance then EQ only if needed and you should get a better mix.

He's good isn't he. This band are 18/19 year olds. You would never think it.

Thanks man, first attempt at mixing in general so might give it another shot

EDIT:

Took about an hour, I eased up on the EQ and enhanced the kick a little bit more. Tidied up the drums as well.

Here's mine approach, did this as a rest from my current project im working in:
http://soundcloud.com/skaminski/veins

I know it's not perfect, although im quite happy with it... well instead of few strange low-mid resonances, and lack of nice top end (I guess that oh's are too quiet ).

Don't want the thread to show on google so can't name the band.
The EP isn't out yet. This is for Sneap forum guys only for now :-)
My ears are fried form mixing a ska band all day but I will listen to the new mixes tomorrow.

Not bad!
Guitars are a bit scratchy. Try sweep a cut around 4-5k.
Might sound too dark at first but take a short break then listen again.
This usually works for me.

Sounds great but we had to work really hard to get the sweepy bassline to cut through on the main riff. It could be clearer on your mix even though the low end is good. Try a bit of drive and/or a boost on the attack of the bass at around 800-1K.

Other than that really good mix!

Love the level of the brass. Good mix overall.
When I mixed this I used a medium attack fast release compressor on the overheads and it really helped to get cymbal level without masking the direct snare. I think if you did this your mix would be awesome.

I loved mixing your stuff so nice to see you mixing mine!
Great mix but same thing with the overheads as above.
I think the analogue EQ on my Zed-r16 really gives me an advantage on high boosts. I can add 6db hi shelf to overheads without it sounding harsh.
I can't get close to that with any plugin EQ.

Guitars are really scratchy and don't really sit in the mix.
I think it's a combination of too much lo cut and not enough scoop at the harsh hi mids. I see you are new here. Keep downloading session files and keep practicing and you will make fast progress. Your levels are pretty good. It's just a matter of getting the right frequency balances.

Really good. Sounds full and clear. I can hear a low mid resonance on the guitars and if you find it and cut it your mix will be louder and clearer. Sweep a medium Q cut around the low mids and it should be obvious where it is.

Here is another multi to mix.
Kick Ass LOG style multi for you to mix with amps DIs and real drums

It's been a long time.

I haven't posted on this forum in years. I saw this and thought I'd give it a try. I'm glad I'm behind a computer so I can't taste the tomatoes :P
Give me your honest opinion.

Thanks for your kind words and comments mickrich. I appreciate your feedback on the overheads, I'm still having trouble with those (most of the times, on most mixes). A good high shelving EQ like yours would be great, but I feel I should still be able to improve without those. The hint on the compression is a good one, I'm gonna experiment with that. In fact, I already did on your latest mixing thread. Right now I'm not sure if it really improved though, need to take a break first.
