    Wow thanks for the kind words man! Appreciate it!

    Drums were a mixture of Slate/LSD, probably about 3/4 samples per drum and then blended to taste.
    -Kick was about 60/40 sample/actual drum sound, going into CLA-3A compressor.
    -Snare is 100% sample, this because there is still a lot of snare bleed in the overheads. Goes into CLA-76 compressor.
    -Toms were probably 70/30, going into CLA-3A.

    EQ wise i do a lot of cuts here and there, and a little high shelf boost at around 10 khz wit a wide Q so that it doesn't sound too dark.

    -Overheads are going into CLA-2A, EQ wise i think i did a low-pass at around 350 hz, made a dip around 2 khz and a little notch at around 8 khz with a wide Q.

    As for the guitars ; they are all Lecto going into Greg's Impulse boosted with an TS from PodFarm, except for the middle guitar track which is Lextac. But i kept that one pretty low in the mix so the guitars sound better seperation-wise. EQ wise i did some surgical cuts here and there, not pretty sure what exactly

    Hope that this helps! If you guys like i could probably doing a movie of me breaking the mix down and showing you guys what samples i blended and so on.

    Hey there, I reamp the DI's for any one who want to try mix the real thing ;)
    I really like to hear what you can make out of it, and see if I'm in a good direction when it comes to record a miced cab.
    Any opinion about reamps appreciated, cheers.
