    Hi! :D

    I'd like to show you guys the latest band I've mixed.
    For this we had real drums with very little sample replacement (kick and snare samples blended)
    The bass used was pretty damn good, and it was one of these cheap Fame basses. I ran it through POD Farm 2, as I find it really nice for bass tones.
    Guitars were DI into TSE's X50v2 beta, into TMF Cabs (ENGL+Mesa).
    Lead guitars were POD Farm 2 as well, it's very liquid sounding.



    I hope you guys like it and I'm open for criticism ;)

    Cheers! :D

    PS: In case YT video sounds like crap, here's another link, although soundcloud doesn't sound much better...

    I like the organic sound of the drums. I think too many bands anymore have a far too artificial drum sound which really, for me anyways, turns a great song into a just "okay" song. I really like what you did with this song.

    Really like it!
    What amps and maybe what kind of settings did you use for the bass? The sound is awesome!

    Hey said in the original post, "Guitars were DI into TSE's X50v2 beta, into TMF Cabs (ENGL+Mesa)." And he used POD Farm 2 for the leads and POD Farm for bass.
