I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to mixing/mastering a recording, so I wanted to see if any of you guys had an opinion on what I should do with my music. I've barely learned how to tweak eqs, and I'm not 100% on how to use filters. I've been told that there's a necessity to eliminate certain frequencies to have a "clean" mix. Currently I'm running Reaper and I'm recording through a Line 6 UX2. I'm however, recording DI and using the GTR vst as opposed to Pod Farm or Gearbox. I'm using Superior Drummer V2.0 and that's pretty much the gist of it. I've only tweaked settings to what I personally think sounds good. Not much technicality involved here. I think my cheesy melodeath has a good amount of potential if only I could have more dynamic, and ear friendly mixes XD The songs are in my sig; listed as Finality. I'm happy with the Sty'gian Altar mixes. It's good ole' black metal inspired by the isolation and desperation of living in the goddamn middle of nowhereville.
