    Hi guys! I have some mixing practice for you right here. This time I recorded a cover of Periphery's "Ragnarok". You can find the files here:

    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3KPvIN6V6Z7ZzItU3lYVU90M2c/view?usp=sharing

    1x Drum MIDI (Mapped after Steven Slate Drums 4)
    1x Bass MIDI
    1x Zombass 3 Render
    1x Rythm Guitar L&R
    3x Lead Guitars L&R
    1x Synth MIDI
    2x Exported Ambient Synth
    3x Exported Lead Synth
    4x Exported Poly Synth
    1x Reference Mix

    Everything recorded at 44.1KHz, 24 Bit with my Schecter Damien 7 equipped with EMG-HZ Pickups.

    Tempo is 125 BPM until bar 74 where it changes to 115 BPM.

    Here is my mix/playthrough:



    In this mix I used:

    Steven Slate Drums 4 for Drums
    Podfarm 2.5 for Guitars/Bass Processing
    Zombass 3 for Bass DI
    Reason 5 for Synths

    You are 100%, completely permitted to use your mix as a means to promote your own reamping/mixing/mastering/production services. And if you do, it would be pretty rad if you credited the recording to me, and perhaps link to my studio page; https://www.facebook.com/DaybreakStudioSwe :Smokin:

    Anyways, hope you guys have fun with this! Let me know if there's any problems!

    Glad you guys are enjoying this. :)

    worldwideweapon: Thanks man! It's Steven Slatge Drums 4 (as stated above). Mixing-wise, it's honestly 100% subtractive EQ. I demoed the "Waves H-EQ Hybrid Equalizer" for this mix for the general tone-shaping of the sounds, and the "Waves Q10" which I bought earlier this month for lots, and lots of small narrow cuts, just to get rid of all the junk. Then parallel compressed to hell and back. Pretty much that. A small amount of a really big reverb on the snare, high-passed all the cymbal tracks pretty hard and a small amount of reverb on them too!

    I´m going crazy with it. I think is 125 until 02:20. After that, the tempo change. I think the tempo are included in the drum midi track but Cubase don´t reconize and I don´t know why...

    Edit: 00:00 to 02:20 - 125 bpm
    02:20 to end - 115 bpm

    Yeah, sorry guys, completely forgot to write down the tempo changes. It always fall so natural to me to just import them from the MIDI files.

    otero1st is absolutely right, tempo is 125 until bar 74 where it changes to 115!

    Great cover, thanks for posting! This is my first attempt at this one and I've got a few revisions to make before it's finished(Definitely gotta fix the clipped subdrop and the toms) but I figured I might as well get some input beforehand. Any feedback is welcome/appreciated!

    I'm so on this. I'll try vocals, but Sotelo's range is immense.

    also 509. Anyone have a mirror?

    Yeah, I thought about asking someone for vocals, but then Sponce's vocals is quite difficult, haha!

    My dropbox links keep going suspended due to too much traffic. Anyone know any other site I can upload this where it stays up? ):

    Thanks for this.
    Really enjoyed mixing it.
    I was supposed to be mastering an album for a band today but this sucked me in.
    Bass is Zoom MS-60B sansamp sim>MXR M80 DI.
    Guitars are TS808>6505>Recto cab> 57&421>ISA828.
