    Really powerful drums and guitars. Respect, bro.
    What did you do to the drums? Samples?

    BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!


    If you don't mind me asking, what's the entire process behind the bass sound, it's nasty whilst sitting pleasantly.

    Sounds great, Ive tried recording bands with the drop A-G subcrap tunings and could never get them this clear. Great work

    Really really nice job man!! How the hell can you be so patient to quantize the drums oh dear god, how do you do it right? Since you have your overheads and the room mic (optional)!! The band is also pretty cool :)

    Its really all on the player and his string gauge. I find that so long as the person is really tight and he has thick enough strings for the tuning, you can usually just treat it like any other guitar tracks. Atleast thats what I do with all my stuff thats in DropA/G.

    Oh and way less gain.

    :OMG: Damn! That sounds REALLY good. My only advice is to bring the vocals up a hair, but you already know that. Props!

    the label hates it, and wants it to have....

    more bass, more grit, shittier everything (they literally want it to sound shitty)

    and i think the guy is tryin to tell me to make the bass drops distort the mix.

    awesome.... NOT

    Hate the music, love the production! Drums, as previously mentioned, sound god-like, though perhaps there's just a bit too much attack in the kick IMO (but that's the only "critique" I can think of, and I'm really reaching it!)

    i think it sound pretty good, the drums work nicely. I also think the vocals could come up just slightly, but i wouldn't be disappointed if they didn't.

    I'm not much on the style of the song personally, but it sounds like it belongs on an album. The vocals actually seem to be fine where there at on my end. Guitars are pretty massive sounding and they sound good. Drums also sound very good. I can't say I would want anything changed on this mix.

    Fuckem it sounds great! However, to tickle there jollys I would put on a saturation plug or just put a limiter on the bus and slam the hell out of it for them just to appease the shitty quality. :puke:
    Im sure they are thinking quality mixes are Metallica esqe. :lol:

    BTW Love the synth part in the starting at 1:15!

    I really liked the song :kickass:

    The production is great, too. Too bad you'll have to deal with this label, working with some people is a lot worse than manually adjusting drums :rolleyes: All you can do is try to reach some compromise I guess.
