Well, sounds clear enough, not too bad. For my taste the kick is bit too clicky without too much actual low end.

Guitars sound fine, bass could do some work, a bit more 'oomph' in the low end.

The most annoying thing was with the synths and piano, they sound lifeless and unmixed in general. It's very apparent when listen them playing by themselves, not that bad when they're over everything else. You should play around with note velocities to add some life in to it. Also drums sound to have some misaligned sounds at some parts.

On the whole it could do with some light compressing on the master to glue everything together, and maybe a reverb bus to send some of the sound for the same purpose.

Thanks! It was one of my first mix's but I plan on redoing everything. I got all the stems from another forum for mixing practice. But will definitely make some changes.

Hey guys,

Trying out some new tones on my kemper, New superior drummer setting, let me know what you think, no criticism is bad criticism.

Cheers

id like some tips for my recording. I purely recorded it as a way to figure out my new interface/cubase/wavelab.

not too bad for one take per instrument..

just would like advice/tips for the actual recording, not the song.
cheers guys

Any thoughts. My speaker placement is screwed, so I referenced it on cans and gave it a go.

Loud guitars, dry drums and not too much bass = perfect mix for goblin metal! The vocalist kicks ass!

My recent version of a Finnish radio megahit (instrumental metal):

Looking for some advice on my acoustic recording. A friend and I are going to be gigging soon, and i want to start a YouTube channel to present to potential venues/booking agents.

I'm using a TASCAM DP-004 with two MXL mics. What do you guys think of the overall presentation?

please have a listen to these mixes:

This is a song I recorded for my friends' band a few years ago and the past two nights I have been remixing it. It's def too bassy and needs more high end or air. And I feel like it needs something to "glue" it together.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/ynjwmlqdz...xed%29.mp3?dl=0

This is a teaser from my bands album we're working on. Just a quick breakdown really. I think it is sounding good so far....any thoughts?

Sounds pretty good so far. Here is what stood out to me first listen:

-drums are too quiet
-cymbals maybe too loud but that might be from the other drums being quiet
-ride cymbal is too pingy and stands out too much
-rhythm guitars are a little bit muddy

Outrun the Sunlight released the stems for "Stars in the Ocean" and I tried my hand at mixing them! Some things gave me a bit of trouble and headache, but I'm happy with the results and I believe it's my best mix yet :3

Any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated!

C4C, as always

I thought they were fine, took a two day listening break, came back and I totally agree. It's a little distracting, even.

Anything else you found?

I think if you lower the OHs and then bring up the kick snare, and toms, it'll make the drums much more powerful and give the mix that bit of 'mmph' it needs. Besides I think all the tones and stuff sounds nice!

looking for any insight on this mix, little things, big things ya know, I think the low end is pumping a little I think, but other than that I'm pretty happy with it and just want another pair of ears.

Guitars are PODFARM
Drums are Slate

Generally speaking, this sounds quite good, although there are some little issues. I'll put them into two categories; important and preference.

IMPORTANT:
The kick drum need far more low end. It's almost inaudible and needs to be louder. Perhaps a boost at 130hz and cut after 60hz.
The guitars are a little fizzy too. Maybe cut above 14khz?

PREFERENCE:
Personally, I prefer the bass to be more defined and not quite as fat. Maybe a bit of high end parallel distortion?

That's about it! Other than that, the playing's solid and the general feel is there

Here's my collab with sanati22. I played bass, mixed the whole thing and reamped guitars.

I had too much low end in the kick originally so I overcompensated I guess haha.

The guitars are a touch fizzy, still kinda working on that.

I tried a little more distorted bass, and decided I liked it sounding bigger rather than defined
-------------------------


I'm in love with your guitar tone.

I think the snare could use a little more low end slap, but that's just my preference, I like big huge compressed as F snares.

I think the lead guitar needs to come down some, or possibly rhythm guitars up


Other than that Its awesome


EDIT:

Mix Update

Your rhythm guitars are kinda fizzy and are crowding everything else out. I low pass my guitars at about 8-10k usually, sometimes lower. Watch the 2-4k fizz nodes also, those are nasty. Drums could do with not sounding so programmed. The kick is fine to me when you fix the guitars. The low end needs more control on the bass guitar (there's a very good reason I crush bass guitar into the ground when I'm mixing).

Here's a mix I did for fun the other day: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u...ite%20Light.mp3 Drums are programmed (and pretty obviously too) EZDrummer 2 and Slate Trigger. Guitars are Nick Crow 7170.
