Can I get some ears on this mix?

    I'm just remixing an album for my band to re-release, but I'm very much used to the mix as it is right now so I'd like any feedback I can get!

    It's not really relevant to my question but Drums are SSD (go figure), guitars are x50 (wish I could use 2.0 for this :cry: ), bass is Zombass II DI through Fabfilter Saturn, which is a fucking awesome plugin btw.

    sounds pretty good, but It sounds like its lacking some low end.

    I like it. Although it is missing out on low-end. I think that if you were to fix that issue and give it that nice "punch in the gut" feel with the low end, it'd be really great.

    Definitely lacking low end. If it were my mix I would bring the bass guitar up in the mix (if there is one, can't tell) and low pass the guitars a little bit. The drums sound very artificial, you should really experiment with velocities and humanizing them.

    Thanks guys! My original mix from this album sounds really dark to me, now, so I evidently over compensated that. heh

    The missing lowend is basically in the 100-200hz region, don't go nuts boosting with a low shelf as you'll get crazy subs (which are just fine)

    When you mastered or limited it you also brought up the noise floor, like, you really crushed it. The first few seconds are nothing but hiss.

    I always pick on you for using midi guitars so, there's that too lol

    I haven't listened to it loud enough to notice the noise yet.

    One day I'll learn guitars and never program them again. But not this day :D
    FWIW I bought an 8 string and I actually enjoy TRYING to play every now and then... I figured that a larger instrument would be nice to learn on but I didn't want to buy a bass because the guitar is more practical.

    One day...

    Updated mix is much better. Someone else mentioned the drums needing some humanizing, and I agree. They're too robotic, even for this style
