    Too much compression. But I don't hear any clipping.

    What are you compressing? The guitars are pumping - do you have compression on them, or are you just using master buss compression?

    I'm using both a compressor and limiter on the master buss

    i guess you have to take it more easy on the limiter, sounds more like limiter pumping, not sure though

    Done a quick remix of the whole thing because I wasn't too happy anyway. Think I have sorted it, could I have your opinions anyway :)

    Much better. Given, there is a bit of compressor pumping, but it's the good kind that comes from a really powerful kick.

    Sweeeeet! So you reckon that the pumping caused by the kick should be left unaltered?
