    I'll wade in here

    The with drums clip sounds fine to me. I think you are on the right "track" (pun intended) :lol:

    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.

    ^^^ 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 :)

    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.

    I think the kick and snare are now too loud, you can't pretty much hear anything except them.

    PM him?
