Hey guys, I've done an instrumental cover of an August Burns Red song and I have recorded and mixed everything. Apart from the drums which I used Superior Drummer for, which I did create all the sounds and set up the kit ( I am still getting hang of SD). I've tried to make the bass drum quite "clicky" and not so much of regular "thud".

Now please bear in mind I recorded this with one Epiphone Les Paul and a Johnson bass which was £50. So please let me know how I could improve this and what your thoughts on it are?

One thing I will say, during the chugging I'm aware the guitars just all sort of mush together and don't stand out like they do during riffs.

tried side chain compression to emphasize one track over the other?


Being a noob at this shit, I'm not sure what this means.

I have compression on the main Superior Drummer track and the Bass bus & guitar bus?
