Hey guys, I just released my debut recording of my project called 'Amber Streams'. The song is called 'Myriad'. As you can read, it's an instrumental progressive metal song. It would be great to get some insights on my mix, as it's my first big recording. The song can be found here. You can also visit the Myspace for more info, but the song is in worse quality. Anyway, the equipment used: - 2 cheap guitars (Samick electric and Stagg acoustic) - V-Amp Pro - Rode NT-2 - Behringer XENYX 802 mixer - DKFH for drums - Sampletank for synths/bass (the bass is bound to be recorded live but was delayed, so I released it with VST bass for now) - E-MU 0404 soundcard - Mixed in Cubase So basically, alot of cheap hardware. I think the mix is pretty listenable, but far from perfect. I think it's a bit too muddy, not clear enough. The double synths (choir/strings) at some parts don't help it either. Rhythm guitars are quad-tracked. As you can tell, it's a pretty heavily-layered song, which doesn't make the mixing easier. The first part for example has rhythm guitar (electric and acoustic), three leads and a synth. Anyway, it'd be great to get some tips on how to improve my results with the equipment I have. If you need more info let me know. Thanks!
