    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!!

    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.

    Paladin Shredder loving your mix mate, loved how full sounding the clean vox were at the start what you use for that?

    Thanks :)

    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 :)

    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)

    https://dl-web.getdropbox.com/get/FlyMP3.mp3?w=bb2fc70c

    Furthermore no interesting effects (yet!) (except for the Bridge part) and no automatisation
