    ... it would sound like this.

    Really happy with the production and feel of this mix. Don't miss the bass drop around 1:40 of the first track. I've been envisioning that part since the first day of drum tracking and it's pretty god damn gratifying to play that shit loud on my barefoots. :heh:

    It's the top post now. Band's called Deadspeak.

    Sounds sick !!! Guitars sound very heavy, overall mix is awesome. Is that a real drummer?

    I think I experienced the phantom image for the first time listening to this.

    I actually was inside the mix for a bit.

    Guitars sound fuckin angry. I'm not feeling the vocals that much, but that's just a personal thing; in the mix they sound really good.

    Love it man, the guitars have a fantastic crunch; was this a 2 or 3 channel Rectifier, and what channel? What cab also? Drums (especially the snare) sound ace as well, great job!

    This may not matter much to you but I could not hear the bass drop on BX8As. Mix sounds amazing though. Love the guitar sound the most.

    I like the band alot. Also it feels like there's a ton of space in this mix, it sounds very open.

    Thanks! Yes, real drummer. A little cleaning up here and there and the entire kit is replaced, but he's a killer drummer and very quick. He has an intensity that fits the music well.

    DAW: Nuendo 3 (I bought the 4 upgrade when it came out and just haven't moved over yet :erk:)

    Interface: Presonus FireStudio which I would not recommend as it is a huge steaming pile of shit. I've been wanting to upgrade for a while now. Thinking about either a SSL Alphalink setup or an Mackie Onyx 1200F.

    Pres: Most of the time I just use the Crane Song Spider for pres and conversion. I have a few SCA preamp modules that I'll use sometimes. I believe for this project everything was Spider except for vocals where I used a N72 module.

    Mesa 3ch DR (Red ch, tube rectos) > Mesa oversized

    Bass is actually all Sansamp. Ran it through once clean and again with a distortion pedal and blended in the mix.

    Drums are all various samples from my collection. A free :headbang: to whoever can guess the tom samples.

    I kind of like to mix bass drops where you won't hear them unless you have a system that will truly do them justice. I must admit I'm a little surprised you can't hear them at all on your monitors. Oh well, they will come through at least a little on most bookshelf system and cars. And if you have subs... your head will actually explode. It's quite a sight.

    Oh yea, I apparently had the link wrong for their myspace for a while and its was sending you to some other Deadspeak in NY. If anyone was sent there try it again.

    It's actually at 1:55... could barely hear it on my HS80Ms, but it just HAD to be there! :D

    and BTW, again a crushing mix. I'm still amazed at how you seem to be able to always achieve this huge sound...
