Definitely needs a bass, it's very lacking in the 150-250hz region where is where most of the bass guitar resonance would be. The vocals could also come up a good bit in volume, they're too far back for pop vox, in my opinion. I also don't like the splat of the kick, but I guess that's a personal preference thing.

Yeah, I was going to mention that. It sounds too metal/hard rock for that song IMO.

Definitely do bass.

Did a recording of a metalcore song today, using my re-tubed amp. I played around with the settings a bit to get some different tones.

I quad tracked the guitar using 2 different mic placements, and didn't do any processing on the guitar tracks except for EQ.

Looking for some feedback please! Thanks.

@Odirunn: Nice clear quality. The first big boom/kick (31 seconds) noise seems to have a weird noise to it in the center. Over compression? Other than that small detail its nice. Everything else sounds nice, I really really like the toms.

@Garlic Owl: You are sitting around 92BPM (maybe a bit off but its around 90) I like the tone.

@Random3: Can't really comment on tone with the instrumental is such low quality. Its just low mid and bass mud. So can't really tell if guitar is too bassy or not. The drums sound like everything but cymbals under a low pass. Which kinda of swallows everything including the guitars.

I imagine there is also to much bass on your guitar tone, but I can't tell because of all the mud.

I think I know why the drums sound very bassy, I tried adding a bit of reverb to them


Thanks, I'll check out the video.

Does anyone have any tips for making tracks come up more? My situation is that I have (atleast) 2 different clean tracks playing at once, both sort of melodies. I pretty much used the same settings for both. Also doubled both. Other is hard left + hard right, other is 70/70. Volume levels set so that both tracks output the same decibels more or less.

Any tips for making both clear and audible?

How are you "doubling" your track?

If you're literally just duplicating the same performance and then panning each track, all you've done is created a louder mono track in the center. You need to either play the parts again (best way) and pan each unique performance, or nudge the duplicated performance up a few milliseconds (can sound weird if done wrong).

Can I get some crit of Pay No Mind (Snoozer) on my profile? It's originally by Beck.


I record with an Audio Technica AT2035 condenser microphone. I double-track the guitars and pan them hard left and right, then I record vocals. I usually double-track them but for this song I left it single as it sounded too muddy with double tracked vocals. I do all this on an 8 track recorder then transfer my files to the computer.


I mix on Ableton. I can go into more depth on this if needed. Anyone got any tips/words on the song? C4C as always.

The biggest thing is I do not like the metronome on the track. Other than that you need some pitch correction on the vocals and the vocals seem a bit loud. Other than that its a pretty clear mix.

It's not a click track its me hitting a pot and kicking a box (home-made drums I guess).


Thanks for having a listen man, I'll have a look at the vocals in the mix and see what's going on. Any tips you think I should know about?

Well actually it's my Baron K88 but I'm kind of new to the certain cab sim i'm using.

Thanks for the comments though guys.

Is this any better?

I handle doubling already it ain't that I got the problem already kind of solved. It sounds ok now. It's just that I couldn't figure out what to do, because eg. I couldn't cut + boost certain frequencies as they were both clean guitars pretty close to each other as what goes to the height of the notes.. What I ended up doing was just setting the volume levels differently, and redid 1 of the guitar parts with 'stronger' or more solid playing

Nah I think you should just drop some volume a little bit in the mix. Also try varying velocities on the pot and box a bit more so it doesn't sound so much like just a loop playing. Very very tiny drop on the homemade percussion volume as well.

I guess you chould just turn the guitars up and that would fix the majority of issues.

I ended up humanizing everything and mixing it a little more. The snare is also a bit tighter as that last one was a bit loose. Hopefully this next one should do.
