    Hey,

    My new band is preparing for a promo release, and we could surely benefit from hearing your opinions on the mix/master. Take a listen here:

    See post further down.

    That sounded cool. Reminds me of Code's first two albums. Honestly, I wouldn't change a thing aside from maybe a tad bit more pop to the snare. BUT, that's just me.

    Maybe the snare a bit more upfront, really cool song!

    Thanks both of you for your comments; I'll revisit my snare compression.

    You don't think it sounds boxy in the mid-range? I really dislike boxy sounding mids, but, at the same time, I'm afraid to scoop the mix too much.

    Well, you can save the existing project, reduce some mids that sound muddy/honky etc a little bit, save it with another name and listen how it sounds. Cool song btw :D I think some high mids may resonate and you can reduce a bit the fizzy area but thats totally depending on your tastes :)

    Evil af! :kickass: I think black metal type of stuff works well with cold sounds! I'd like to hear more of the drums though!

    Thanks for the replies so far. I did some changes to the mix and uploaded two more songs from the promo.

    I think you got it, IMO. Very impressive stuff. Hope to hear a full album soon.
