where are all the cool dudes who gave me advice when we started this thread?
Can anyone give it a listen??
I'll wade in here
The with drums clip sounds fine to me. I think you are on the right "track" (pun intended)
Anyway what I mean is this is a usable tone for a mix. I would suggest finishing it with this sound. At least it can be shaped later when all the instruments are complete.
You have been a real champ listening to the advice given and the sound improved a lot as a result. Unlike some boneheads that ask for help and refuse to listen or try suggestions.
In my opinion the mastered clips you posted later sound a little muffled :Smokedev:
^^^ Yeah I'm working on those clips a bit more, also the drums were a bit low on that. I'll work on it some more and post samples. Thanks for your advice.
lol seems like your having more luck then i am
i would lower the mids and up the higher freq. just by a bit but not on an eq. on the amp
but yea it sounds good man
just try what i suggested if your interested
and your rockin
what you putting those mic/s thru ?
^^^ Am done with all the recording so can't do anything on the Amp now so I will give it a shot
I recorded these gutiar tracks using my Laney VH100R with a POD X3 in front for gate,comp, eq and stomp.
I used 1 SM58 with cap off and 1 SN609 both mics were connected to the TC Electronic Konnekt 8 interface which has Impact Preamps I think and thats how I recorded it
While I was at it I did one more version

And while no one else is commenting I'm down 2 more and I have no more perspective left

No that I could do any better at all man, but to my ears through some little harman/kardon's the snare sounds very boxy. Actually the whole kit sounds surreal to me. I think it's needs some verb bad. A nice plate reverb would probably help. GClip the snare if you haven't. Maybe an exciter as a buss to add a little sparkle to the whole kit? Also try a different meatier kick sample if possible.
I think the guitars sound great especially considering what you started with!
It also seemed that in master 5 the synths breathed a bit more.
^^^ I think that should be fixed soon actually because in the later mixes I've actually killed a lot of the room mic because it was making the hi hat sound wierd and i had exported my kit with bleed in the snare top which I need to re do but I will try the gclip on the snare.
I actually got a hall verb on the toms and snare. But will try and plate instead. Will also see if I can get a better kick sample.
okay all that aside I fiddle around some more
let me know what you think of these

okay I heard it again. I know the snare is a bit too loud
snare down, kick attack up
100 times better than the first clips
Thanks, should get it sounding right soom.
How do I get the gentleman named Ermz to have a listen?
Did some more work.

I think the kick and snare are now too loud, you can't pretty much hear anything except them.
^^ good idea.
And really? will have to work harder.
