my version for the loudest mix race
hey, im new here. I got here looking for metal forums with mixing engineers that specialize in metal, hardcore and that stuff. Im amazed at the quality of some mixes. The paladin shreder and proggm mixes were very cool! Im loving the drums in proggms, I think that mix is really pro sounding!!!
to those two users, do you mind telling me if you use outboard or mix just with plugins (in this songs mix)??? i can barely hear a difference with pro sounding records, so I would like to know how do you do that.
sorry for the long post, next time ill do a thread with my bands tracks and see what you guys in the forum can do!!
Since we are all competing here, I thought i'd rego at my mix.
http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=912345 - it's on there.
whats the budget gonna be for the 4 songs if mixes are picked....... i might update my mix if i can get time in between the 3 sessions i already have today ....
Hi, Sorry for the delay in getting back to everyone!
We've had a listen to all the samples posted, and we've picked out someone to mix it for us, based on our budget and the mixing quality.
Have to say it was a tough one, there's a lot of really good mixes on here for our track!
Sorry we haven't had time to give individual tracks any feedback.
Thanks again for having a go, we really appreciate it!
thanks for the compliment! i mix in protools using mostly waves plugins and massey plugins. i have a digi 002 as my only "outboard" gear.
leucine: glad you found a mix you are happy with.
Although we were late because of mixing and mastering other bands we did today the mastering of the song. I upload it just for reference reasons.
We went for a totally more punk way of the song keeping some elements of "a day to remember" band.
The guitars went more groovy and the drums went more kicking in the lows.
As for the voice we went for the straight in your face feeling, away from delays and spaces that don't fit with angry melodies.
Here is the link to the master..
Many mixes were great, we wish topics like these will go on, great forum.
Wish every luck to the band.
I know its late but i thought i might aswell post up my mix anyway jus to see what ppl like/ dnt like, first time mixing emo/hardcore so hopin it sounds ok.
Paladin Shredder loving your mix mate, loved how full sounding the clean vox were at the start what you use for that?
I use some outboard, but mainly plugins (waves and uad). I'm planning on getting more (and better) outboard, but that's just the icing on the cake. Remember that the main quality of the mix resides on the skill of the engineer.
Waves C4 "pop vocal" preset, a light de-esser setting (-3db) above 6k, and massey CT4 with settings exactly like the picture on their website
I suppose im a little late on this one as well. Good luck on the mixes!
Kool ive been thinking on getting some waves plug ins and thats clinched it for me
As usual, I'm late to the party but I had some spare time and decided to give this song a try. I went for a more pop-punkrock feel and I'm really happy with the result because those source files were pretty low leveled and the guitars were extremely fizzy.
Here it is:
Well i made a quick mix too, im not in an ideal situation right now (been moving to a new home and my computer is not yet at my home)
Furthermore no interesting effects (yet!) (except for the Bridge part) and no automatisation
I'm going to give this a shot later. Is there a cutoff date for submissions??
Sorry dude, but they already picked someone
great work, punkrockacademyfightsong.
