    bass = direct in

    vocals = at3035 ran flat, as much gain without clipping, compressed to hell and back, then your average reverb and some eq to remove bad qualities in the voice

    dont forget the de-esser after the compressor

    First off my girl wants to know who the band is so she can buy the cd!!

    Second this mix is fucking fabulous dude and I'm guessing you used pod xt again! Now on the bass direct what preamp did you use and any compression on the way in or did you after? I got a sansamp and I'm still slacking with my bass tones still :erk:

    Yea dude also thanks for the vocal compression tip the vocals sound Gigantic!!

    Man, this sounds great. I'm totally sold on an AT3035... you get the most amazing vocal tones out of that damn mic!

    You consistently put out great sounding stuff, it's killer that you share tips like you do. Much appreciated, bro. :)

    on this recording, we electrical taped a wire connecting the bass player to his ground cuz it was broken in the bass, and we ran direct into a firepod

    i no longer use a firepod, and i get better bass tones with the rme direct in, which has a limiter built in

    sometimes i use the great river too

    i use a compression plugin, usually 1176

    if there's a lot of flab, i use waves maxx bass and then weed the rest out with c4

    Sounds very, very good. Being the commercial bastard I am, I like this the most out of all the bands you've done (although that kind of music is very "2-years-ago", but you have nothing to do with that).

    What de-esser are you using? I have very harsh sibilants in my own voice and it is always a struggle to reduce them.

    all said, while i really dig the radio compatible full blown autotune on before their eyes this time the longer held notes somehow don't fit. and wheres the acoustic touch you managed to pull off :D at least the chorus could use that allaroundyouwallofsound no ? they wanted it dry all the way ?

    well im not sure what frequency the nuendo is active on, but i use it a lot
    sometimes i get some takes that have too much ess action going on that even the nuendo desser cant fix

    so i make my own with c4, and i usually just set the q really wide, and start with 5khz for the highest band

    acoustic doesnt belong in this song bro, and thats more of a production thing

    the chorus sounds perfect in my opinion

    pod xt, not the pro on this recording (i now have a pod xt pro)

    one take hard panned left, another hard panned right
    choruses have a center guitar track for mono compatibility
