    So I just got done mixing this song for some friends of mine. This is one of those dirty nickelback type songs. Any criticism welcome. Also which do you prefer? Mix 1 or 2? Thanks guys.



    Small changes.

    The drums could be a bit more present in my ears. Guitars and Vocals are so huge and drums sound a bit more in background..ore a bit more air/hi end to the hole mix coould do this? anyway.. nice vocals :)

    I love how thick and gainy is the guitar tone without being muddy or fizzy

    what's the guitar chain?

    Yeah I agree. The final mix I sent out is more open on top. Thanks for the tips!

    Gibson Les Paul > Fulltone OCD > 2 ch. Mesa Dual Rectifier > Mesa 4x12 > SM57/R121 > API 512c/Chandler TG2 > RME FF800

    Really all you need to tame those highs is a good LP or a Pultec type EQ. UnEQ'd it's over the top no doubt. I still think they are a good bit overgained but I like it.

    I like the first mix A LOT! The second one doesn't sound as professional to me. :)

    Very huge tone. I love it. Share the drum samples, man!

    And I'd love to match EQ that guitar tone also so can I hear a second of raw guitar tracks? :D

    It's the kit snare blended with a Slate snare. It's the 12A if I'm not mistaken. If you don't already own them I'd suggest grabbing them. I've never had a time I couldn't find what I was looking for in Steven's stuff and the newest offering is just ridiculously good and offers even more options.

    Thanks man! The 2nd mix was after a bunch of revisions for one of the member's of the band. I agree that I like the first one although I like it more with the high shelf I added for the final. Sounds pretty much the same but less congested.

    I'll make you a bounce of the guitars too.
