    Exzem, thanks for enjoying my song!
    The clicks and pops are due the several copy&paste. I didn't play all the song in one take.
    The only thing wrong I noticed was the bass, it enters along with the drums at 00:05
    Oh sorry, I forgot to upload the solos.

    Hmm, yeah the bass sounds weird I just assumed everything was aligned correctly when importing the files.

    Try crossfading between the different takes to get rid of the pops.

    The Solo1 is sincronized, the 2° must be at 02:41

    Thanks :)

    the kick was a blend of one of my own samples with the RRkick that someone posted here, heavy compression with ~70ms attack, some crazy roller coaster eq, clipped to fuckery with gclip, then a bit of final touches with eq

    snare was a pearl FF that someone posted here as well, lots of multiple eq, compression and clipping stages, with freeverb shoved on the end.

    the toms suck ass, i cannot do toms to save my life.

    All the drums were parallel compressed (with the compressed track slightly phase shifted with phasebug, it just sounded better that way), and have a bit of verb on them collectively.

    I did some nickelback style delay on the guitars (the delay from the right is on the left and vice versa), it seemed to fatten them up a bit as they were very dry sounding

    Cool you shared the settings.
    I didn't know about that "Nickelback" technique.

    Been having a go at this, and I must say I prefer the original rhythm guitars, but I like the new solo, maybe I'll combine the two.

    Wow COBHC, I'm glad you've enjoyed the previous guitar files. They are GuitarRig2 files.
    The new ones were recorded in a real Laney.
    Combining the 2 will be interesting!

    There's no clicking or timing issues with the old rhythm guitars. ;)

    Hey everyone.. I don't know if this thread is still alive. I know it's been so long since people were here, but I was looking for a song to practice mixing with my new Presonus 16.4.2 .. I just loaded all the tracks into capture (a simple record program that came with it) and mixed it with the mixing desk. I used compression and some eq. The only effects I added was reverb on the effects bus, I added it to drums and a little bit on guitar and more on solo's. I didn't end up using the ride cymbal and the china tracks. I wanted to keep everything as simple as possible. It sounds alright for a first try.. If anyone's here tell me what you think.. There might be too much low end, not sure with these headphones I'm using for reference..
