    Hey guys,

    I'm new in here, so if I miss some rules, please tell me :)
    So, I just wanted to start by showing you the first mix I've made for my own band, Conception Divided.
    I hope you can give me some advice for my mix, esspecially for the guitars.
    I also uploaded the "mastered" (just EQ and Comp/Limit) version of the track, that is actually released for promotion on the internet.

    Thank you very much!

    Hey,
    a lot of people listened to the song and I wondered, why no one answered my post :)
    Obviously I'm not that perfect, that no advise is needed, but please, take those 30 seconds to share your thoughts with me, to help me to become a better mixer.
    Thanks!

    I don't feel like the problem is with the guitars (only thing I'd do is to add a little more gain, just a little). More like in the drums which weaken the whole mix. Bass could be a little more dirtier and upfront also.

    Thanks for your reply. I did a sidechain of the whole drum bus, this could might be too much. On the other hand ... More EQ / Levelig for the drums?
    Bass, I see.

    I will try to focus on these things :)

    The drums are too weak in general. I'd look for more punchier more REALISTIC samples and programming. Bass has too much obnoxious lowend that clouds everything else atm.
