    Hey guys, some time ago I've created a thread here about mixing my band's LP. A lot of you have been very responsive and helpful. These forums gave me confidence to do the project myself and I've learned a whole lot from it.
    The record is now finally out and I'd like to share it with you.

    You can download it for free (or pay what you want) on our bandcamp:
    http://anothermask.bandcamp.com/album/deposition

    I still have raw files, so if anybody would want to practice mixing on shitty sources, I can put something out.
    There are decently recorded real drums and DIY ghetto recordings of everything else.

    UPD: Haven't mentioned the most important thing! All the processing in this project was done with Reaper stock plugins and freeware plugins.
    HUGE thanks to Ermz for the Systematic Mixing Guide - made the process a lot easier.

    UPD2: Some raw tracks:
    Crystal Spheres (105 BPM): http://db.tt/CIVFaAXB
    Guided Missiles & Misguided Men (125 BPM): http://db.tt/nueaE4Nd
    Won't Last Forever (90 BPM): http://db.tt/82ZjDzW0

    Sadly, dropbox suspended my public links due to excess traffic. Any ideas where else could I upload the files?

    Mediafire, but it only lets you upload files 200mb or smaller for free users. Putlocker maybe ?

    anotherpaul - dude, loving the tracks and the raws sound pretty fantastic. Did you eq and compress on the way in when you tracked or did you just crank your preamps?

    @robstorm:
    Thanks, man! Drums were recorded in a decent studio through a huge console with Neve preamps. I don't think there was any EQ or compression on the way in.
    Everything else went straight into my Focusrite Saffire LE with no DI box or any external preamp.
