    FYI, I didn't play the drums (can't play for balls), and had help writing lyrics. And it was recorded with REAPER and nothing but freeware!

    The snares+ toms seems to be having too much room! And the overheads seems to be somehow compressed? I really dont know what you did there.

    The bass is really boomy and taking a lot of space
    Guitars sound hollow
    The mix sound kind of scooped in my monitors

    But i really like the song ;)
    Would you be so kind of sharing the files for others to mix? i would love to mix this :kickass:

    Like taking up too much space in the mix? Or too much room sound/reverb?

    I have some parallel compression going on, perhaps I need to send less of the OHs? Plus, the rooms are squished to shit, and I had to high pass them because of the kick being editing separate from the hands (sloppy playing), so the rooms are basically only picking up cymbals and a little tom and share attack. I'll give that some more attention and see where I can go with it.
    Thanks for your input. :)

    Thanks for the input.
    I was actually really happy with how this mix translated onto headphones.
    I did cut a little bit of the high mids cause they were sounding harsh as fuck. Less than ideal mixing space I suppose. As far as the bass, maybe I'm just still being a retarded bass player who wants to crank the bass a ton :/ glad you like the song.
    I'll remix to something decent and then post some stems. :kickass:

    My bad about the previous comment. I heard through my laptop speakers so sorry about that! :) The snare sounds okay but it should come out more in the mix. I think they are colliding with the guitars or OHs in the mix a bit! And the basses are a bit messed up!

    What do you mean? Boomy like the other dude said or what? Thanks again. I need this constructive criticism!

    The vocals sound a little harsh to me. Some of the really high frequencies kinda made my ears hurt
