So I figured I'd be smart and condense all my ratemymix threads into this one by simply calling it the TALEstudios RateMyMix. I produce only digitally. I've never had the priveledge of proper audio engineer classes, so I'm not into the analog stuff. Although the room I use is no studio it's small and I don't have all the equipment. I use Cubase 5, recently upgraded from Cubase 4. Superior drummer, Steven Slate samples and Pod Farm In my opinion, the best equipment for one's money. Anyway, lets start with my early stuff My Band's First EP This is actually quite recent, but I am learning so quickly that a November 2011 release to me seems really old! I think it's good, but I am aware of some major flaws surrounding it! I've recently produced a Joey Sturgis - esque band "Hopes Anchored" who was going for the Emmure sound. They said they wanted a distinct bass drum sound, so it was then where I found a bass drum unique enough for their recording. Now I am coming out with an 8 song album on April 13, for my band Nemora! Here's a slightly mixed bonus track from that new album, "Equinox of the Gods" I'd love some feedback, critique, and honest remarks about my journey as an audio engineer. All of us are on their way of developing their own special sound, and it is here where I will display my progress toward the better mixes of my future! Thanks guys and stay metal PS> if you dig it, please like my band on Facebook!
