http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1186608/20100611 Test 2.mp3 Any suggestions for improving the mix? Guitars are quad-tracked, ESP/LTD EC-50 with 85+81s straight into Profire 610 hi-z. 85+81 @ 100L/R 85 @ 80L/R -3dB Both are SoloC -> 8505 -> englv30morepres impulse -> EQ (with a lot of surgical cutting in the mids/highs to get rid of some nasty airy fizz). 80L/R pair has less gain and slightly different EQ. Lead guitar was essentially the same chain, with some reverb/delay on it. Bass is a shitty scratch track (it drops out partly through), SX SJB62-5 fretless with an EMG J-X set straight into my Firebox hi-z. Strings are 3 years old, I haven't changed them because I don't want to deaden my new ones at all before tracking (I still have to practice the songs more.) Split into three signals: SVX + Ampeg 8x10 impulse SVX + SWR 1x15 impulse 8505 + s-preshigh for grit Drums are SD2 with a lot of processing outside of the SD2 mixer. Vocals were an SM58 (I believe) into a tube preamp (not sure what model) into Profire 610. Right now, to me, the guitars are about as good as I'm going to get them with my limited knowledge of sculpting EQ and this side of retracking them with a $2000 guitar into a real rig. Especially for the type of music we're playing. I have a lot of work to do on the drums, I really haven't played with any of the velocities yet. For what it's worth, I've been referencing the mix between my Logitech speakers, my ipod earbuds, and my Sony MDR-V150 headphones. Not an ideal mixing situation, but it worked well enough (for me) on our first EP all the same.
