    Ok so this isn't Metal but there are fairly heavy guitars in here. Wasn't going for supertight or anything, just BIG. Not my song but I'm hoping to start recording a bunch of similar stuff soon and the stuff I write is mostly mainstream heavy type stuff. Funny since I listen to a lot of metal.

    Anyway you guys seem to be the shit around here. For this type of music what do you think of the tones and mix? What would you change if you were doing the project?

    Left - Recto 100% Uber 80%
    Right - Cobra 100% Uber 80%
    Clean - Twin with Eventide Modfactor and Timefactor
    Lead - Uberschall with G-Force

    Thanks!

    Wow wasn't expecting that. Thanks man!

    Nothing you would change or be able to suggest?

    I love criticism. Only thing that will make me better besides practice. :)

    So far 55 views and only a couple comments. I'm sure some of you totally don't like the tones or mix. Tell me what you don't like and what you'd do differently if possible?

    Sounds pretty nice. A bit too scooped, though, for me anyway.

    Thanks man, silky leads are pretty easy to get out of the Uber. :)

    What would you do differently to the rhythm guitars?

    Pretty nice tone, not great, but very useful. Snare is really thin sounding, kick is very nice.

    What would you change about the tone if you were doing it? I need to free up some room around the snare, agreed.

    Hey man, pretty cool; I definitely wouldn't say the guitar tone is scooped, though it feels a bit...I dunno, not thin, just kinda more fizz and not much CHRUM (as Borat would say :lol: ) down low. I would ditch the Cobra entirely, though I've never liked that head. The lead tone honestly is a bit thin/scratchy for my tastes, a classic example of how what works for a rhythm tone might not for a lead (I prefer less highs and more mids as a rule, to round out the higher notes). Also, the whole mix feels kinda hollow in the center, which is a bit odd; are you using any sort of stereo widening trickery? (and if so, FIE UPON YOU :heh: ). As for the drums, not bad, though the kick could use more click IMO, but I can also hear from what click it has that it's been super-boosted in that range already; maybe time to just change samples for something with a bit more smack inherently, cuz if there's one thing I don't like, it's a muffled kick that's been eq boosted like crazy for its attack. Snare is good, though feels a bit muffled; could use a bit more snap IMO. Also, in the fade-out, there seems to be some random snare-ghost note in the right channel, what's up with that?

    hey that guitars sound is great.
    Not a big fan of that compression on the snare, but it's just me.

    I think the kick has too much lows/low-mids, and needs more attack...
    The snare is a bit low, I would rise it a bit.
    I like the guitar tones.

    There is definitely something strange going on on the right channel as noticed by Metaltastic...

    I would use the Uber for everything, I love the low mid tightness those Bogners have. I think you need to toy with mic position. You oughtta be able to work that amp a little more.
