    Vocals, GTR+BASS DI, .wav synths, and drum midi included!

    It's in my signature at this point in time, but it's a song called Planetary Devastation by my band Øscillatör.

    Here is your reference mix. I suck at mastering, FYI

    For the record, DI quality sucks, the bass strings are old, and vocals are recorded in a completely untreated room with an sm58.

    I feel like it's a turd and have worked pretty hard to polish it to the best of my skills.
    I'd be flattered to see how other people would work it, if they had their way!

    I'll give this a shot. I like the riffage you got going here.

    Yes. I've also done minimal humanizing to it but I suck at that too. :kickass:

    blue_fAng - You should automate those drums down a few dB. ;)

    reminds me a lot of The Faceless.

    If I had some sort of drum VST i'd give this a shot....

    Tried mixing it, but couldn't touch the guitars in the original. What was the chain for those? Fucking awesome music by the way. It's like a better, crazier version of Job for a Cowboy. Dig!

    Thanks for the detailed answer!

    Treadplate is supposed to model a Recto right? Ill try getting close with leCto. Nice glassy highend/pick attack in your mix. Reminds me a bit of good ol' german JaKa:

    Brutal tune!!! We'll give it a whirl. Our studio often does free work when we really dig the music. Gave the raw tracks a quick listen; would be a week or so before we could get it in. Might be cool to hear how it mixes down in analog... most likely on Neotek Series 1. But it kind of depends on what we find after really digging in. *Horns*
