    Hey guys,

    We played metal fest this past weekend and have been recovering the last few days :) I'll get those raw toms up tonight and edit the first post with the bass and toms.

    I'm going to hold off before making a decision as there are some guys working on other projects at the moment that won't be able to take a stab at this until they're done with what they're currently working on. As for thoughts so far, some of the mixes sound great....but some are just totally washed in delay and reverb. We're all about huge sounding drums and cool vocal effects, but some of the mixes sounded like we recorded in a gymnasium. We'd definitely like to steer in the direction of tastefulness as opposed to plug-in city.

    Ok so there's still a few problems with this. Sum missed snare triggers with KTDrumTrigger (which I'll go back and re-do tomorrow, I figured I'd leave it for now so you'd have something to listen to)
    Bass is a bit out of whack and I'm going to re-do the low end tomorrow
    A bunch of stuff still needs automation
    Also, I haven't even done the toms yet, the original tom tracks are buried in there somewhere practically inaudible, but I'll get around to sample replacing those tomorrow as well and all will be well.

    But yeah, let me know what you thinkz, but keep in mind a few parts of it are a definite work in progress. :D

    meatied everything up a bit more, fucked with the bass, need to automate properly tomorrow
    changed kick sample
    processed the toms included, gonna try different samples tomorrow
    need to re-automate vocals
    still not happy with the kick
    and annoyed with teh low end
    but there it is anyway, probably too smashed now as well

    Sptz mix is fucking killer! Definitely my favorite by far.

    Good job dude, that snare is fucking killer! Mind sharing what 2 compressors you're sending the drums to in parallel?

    Update! here

    Everything sounds a little more balanced now, only the guitars are sounding a little hot now at times uuugh... Made the clean part a little more interesting with some FX

    Hey! Thanks a lot for the comments :) really appreciate it! The 2 comps are rocket compressor and ssl comp (not sure on this one, eill confirm when i get home) although both comps are mixed pretty low but theyre giving a lot of character

    When you are going to listen to the mixes, remember to use the volumeknob and be sure to listen them so that which sounds the best, not which one is the loudest.
