    Ok, done a new mix, using Superior 2.0 drums really helped, I'm pretty stoked about this mix now, I left the solo's out for the moment as I need to play with the levels on them. The only thing I'm not sure about is the guitars might be a tad quiet and the kick is loud in places, but let me know what you think.

    Wow COBHC, it's sounding great!
    The drums are outstanding.
    Unfortunately the solo has several takes, that's why it has volume issues.
    I pm'ed you

    Thanks, I'm awaiting your PM. Drums were Superior 2.0 with the Sneap Kick and Snare blended in 50%.

    I dug your mix Mique. Really cool!
    The FX in the solos was amazing! Was it an octaver?
    What did you use on the drums?

    Yeah G1, show the people your skills!

    Cool mix Crazyclown! It has a 80's vibe.
    The drums are sounding like Motorhead lol. I also like the guitars sound.
    I only think you should center the solo.

    Im pretty happy with it seeing as ive only been learning logic over the last 6 months.

    Ive changed a few of the drums to suit the song better same with the intro and brought out some of the softer harmonies that where hiding in the recordings.

    Im not too happy with how the solo's sit on the track but i'll probs change that again.

    What i would like to know is how you recorded the guitar tracks and what you used because they're really harsh and choppy (which is a good thing for this style) I'd like to be able to use it when i produce my mates thrash band.

    Hope ya'll like it.

    First Mix//

    I'll post another mix if i tweak and play more.

    I'm visiting my parents house for the week, so can't mix it, but just out of curiosity: why oddball tempo like 164,8 bpm? why didn't you track it at 165?

    G1, great ideas. The intro and the solo are so cool!
    I only think there's too much reverb on the cymbals and hihat.
    I recorded 2 guitars, 2 takes each one directly into my soundcard. Then, I used 2 different GuitaRig's presets.

    Ahjteam, I was tweaking the tempo between 164 and 165 and they wasn't fitting into my ears. So suddenly, when 164,8 came, I felt it was the right tempo.

    Coneyis, I'm enjoying your idea. The kick sound is good! You have changed some drum rolls too. It's cool!

    Great ideas, guys!

    Here it is again!
    The drums, bass and guitars was re-recorded.

    Well, I think the only bad time you're gonna have is the second guitar.
    The time to record was short and only at 2:30 am, so in the day after, I figured it was too bassy.
    Anyway, it will be fun to listen the way out of yours and leaving your impressions about the song, would be appreciated.
    The bass enters along with the drums at 00:05

    There are some serious issues with those tracks, alot of clicks and pops at the guitars. And some digital noises with the rhythm gtrs for example at 1:04 and 2:14.

    I did a quick mix anyway, since the song was so damn catchy I couldn't stop listening to it :lol:

    I added a high shelf for the rhythm guitars +18db at 750 hz. As you said they were a bit bassy :)
