    I hope you folks don't gouge out my eyeballs for asking this, but:
    which album (s) did Andy Sneap work on?
    Thanks

    Since Andy mastered:
    What do you use that for? Hardware / Software? And what in special?

    After the fade-in of "These Fighting Words", when everything pops in louder, what did you use to make it firmly punch on the first hit? I think it´s not that "standard sub-kick-boom"-thing one can hear on almost any modern metal-album these days.
    Thanks so much,
    Seb

    This album sounds great, and the songs are really good. Their best album yet imo.

    Andy, "Verbed out"...does that mean "reverse reverb"?
    sorry, but I don't own the album (not yet), so I'm just guessing ;)


    cheers

    I, too, think this is some of Andy's greatest work. I can't help but compare it to Chimaira's latest, as the style and tones are similar to me...This mix and master, to me, sounds better. While I love the Chimaira disc, it does sound a little squashed from the master. Too bad Andy couldn't master that disc, as this Devildriver disc just kills in every way. The guitar tone on the intro in "Clouds over California" has got to be in my top 5 all time favorite guitar tones...

    cool, glad you guys are digging it. It really was a shame about Chimaira mastering as I was prety damn happy with those mixes too. I'm still using mainly the finalizer with a couple of little inserts on the master fader in pro tools.

    Thought I'd add to the compliments already posted - really great mix Andy, and good job Mark too on the guitars and tracking. Every aspect sounds great.

    This snare sounds particularly fat, really enjoying it. What snare drum does this one derive from Andy?

    im a bit late on this one, just got the record and love the mix, ive loved fury of our makers hand for years now, mixed and produced by colin, you can tell his work. However i find andys take on their stuff alot clearer, fuller, almost darker really really nice. Love that bit with just the drums, bass, guitar and synth/organ vibe on the last track. the drums sound killer on it, you using your own samples for the kick and snare andy? what kit were they from? or are they just a generic set youve had for a while?

    This album's mix is still tha shit!!!!

    Same goes for Chimaira, shame about the mastering on that, but that just might spoil 0.1% of the fun that album allready brought me..

    Just needed to put this out there again..

    I was recording a band last week, and I thought I was getting a badass mix......so I popped in the new DevilDriver for a reference, and proceeded to donkey punch myself and cry.:kickass:


    In my mind, this Andy's best yet! As I lay Dying and new 36cf are a close second I think.


    Great job sir!




    p.s. that guitar tone is godly. Props to Andy and Axeman for that!!!
