    I have been working on this for the past 2 day's im starting to really get happy with it, this is not the final mix im sure ill be making changes.
    Also this is a lot lighter on the bass grit than i would normally do and this i was meaning to do, because on the actually album there is not a whole ton, so i figured it would be to drastic to add grit like i normally would

    i am not really going for a exact sound, kinda putting my twist on it a lil bit, so keep that in mind. But i like it well enough to show and i think its solid enough to share with others. hah so here you go hope you all enjoy! :headbang:

    Sounds pretty sweet, man, very Depths to me. If I had everything my way I might slam the master a little more and get that dirty grit in there, but that's just my preference. Everything sounds clean and has their own space.

    you guys do realize on the actual depths album joey did not use a SSL comp or anything? lol

    at least from what i read when i was researching before i started.
    but again, i hate pumping no matter what, and i think the threshold on SSL is fine at -4, any more it starts to pump and that just sounds us professional to me at least

    a few guitar bits are off, the toms aren't quite right, and you're missing the awesome intro!

    other than that, you've nailed this. completely.

    you're not going for an exact sound? this in parts sounds almost identical to the album version!

    thanks,

    Listened one more time - I'd go back and work on the mid range of the guitars - they're focused in a weird area and are bit cloudy so I'd remove some 600 - 1k. Also lacking some chunk too. Sometimes a boost in the subs can work - around 70hz. A cool trick I picked up from a dude that works at British Grove is to use something like RBass (he used some over the top hardware but RBass works just as well) to make the guitars bigger. If my guitars lack that deep chunk I'll throw Rbass on, dial it in around 70hz and BAM - big bottom end.

    ALSOOO i do have the full song and with the awesome intro haha when i get the final mix done ill post the full thing for you man :)


    and yeah with the toms i wanted to use my toms that i normally run in my productions, just not a fan of slate toms.

    It would still sound better if you at least automated the shells on fills and blast sections, despite how the original sounds.
