    this is lepersmeesa's band - The Safety Fire

    had a play around with the multitracks for this, drums are Superior 2 with some other samples blended in and a TON of room mics

    i didnt reamp guitars, they were 5150 and 5150II although I eq'd them quite a bit in this mix. i think ill give reamping a try when im back home

    bass was DI processed with podfarm

    NEAR FINAL MIX Reamped by me (6505)

    and here is derya's mix for the same song for comparison

    let us know what you think guys!

    btw if you like them, check out their myspace here

    i was going to criticise the drums and say they sound fake, but i forgot you had said they're superior. I like the guitar sound. I think the bass could come up alittle.

    Sounds cool! I think though that a little edgier guitars wouldn't hurt, just a touch of bright on them.

    the guitars sound a bit undergained and missing some high end to me, but appart from that its a nice mix :)

    cheers guys

    I already cranked the high end in the guitars a ton, but I guess a bit more won't hurt :) I should be able to reamp the guitars for these within the next few weeks

    First version is better and, I agree with the rest, needs some brightening :)

    heres a mix with more treble

    I'll probably keep the mix the same untill I reamp, unless there is anything else you'd recommend changing?

    I really like the drum sound: punchy and clicky kick, the snare could be a bit less compressed for my taste, but it sounds very "modern metal".
    I like the guitar sound. I think the bass could come up alittle.[/QUOTE]
    The guitar sound is very cool, although the solo parts that run in parallel to the vocals could be a little quieter. The 3:18 part is wonderful, very Tool'ish... but only a few seconds long... OK, we're talking technical metal here, so no part should last longer than a few seconds, even if it deserves it... ;-)

    EDIT: ill do the krank stuff again and upload - for now here is a 6505 reamp i just did. didnt spend long on it for now as im going to do it again tomorrow loud anyway.

    DMB rough 6505

    i think this one is the best tone out of them as the mids are much less forward than in the old 6505 tracks

    Sounds cool, but I think I prefer the Peavey mix as well. Both sound really good though man, put me to shame :lol:

    That Krank mix sounds really.. Buzzy/fizzy/scooped D:
    Really unclear too, weird considering the mic position.

    5150 mix sounds really really good though dude.

    sorry for adding new mixes all the time - this one is very near final now (just think i have the bass a little too high).

    near final mix

    thoughts guys?
