    Thanks Adee, this will help me a lot!
    I'll turn down the bass, and work more on the snare and Overhead compression.

    What a shame someone else tried to sale your work, ReampZone!

    killer intro, loves it. (clean part could do with a distortion cut since theres a bit of string noise, my bad).

    I'm anxious LOL. I've put less HPF on guitars and have added low end on bass. I do not know if there will be improved. Thanks, go to my job.

    Need lot of work on low end. Too bright presence area (mid range). You won't improve low end by adding more bass on guitars. HP guitars at 90-120 LP on 7k and focus on bass and drums section - this is a source of low end. Not bass guitar only.

    I have been listening with headphones all afternoon on my phone and it has certainly not improved, has worsened. English is not my native language, sorry ... Could you explain how to improve it as I was dummie, if I don't disturbe?

    Sorry for the Google translator

    To make a good mix you need to start from buying decent monitor speakers and headphones. It doesn't need to be expensive but not cheap, crapy one. Here the journey begins!

    This mix got balls!
    The drums are very compressed for my tastes but it's cool!

    --

    The trebles of the bass guitar are very present, maybe it fights with guitars.
    Anyway, don't take my opinion too seriously since I'm not experimented in mixing stuff.

    Therefore, read my signature and start using your ears. It works as hell :)

    Extremely overprocessed mate. Keep work on levels and low end.

    Here's my take on it using the new Thermionik amp sims. Plan on going back to fine tune. What needs work?

    Overprocessed as hell - couldn't finish listening it. The whole mix needs a lot of work to make it good sounding.
