Any suggestions on how to improve the mix?

I'm using Logic Pro 9 (its a friend's copy) , this is for my band's demo

We're using really cheap equipment cause we have no $$$

Drums: i have a blue snowball mic i just placed directly in front of the drums, i know thats not the best way to do it, but...

Guitar/Bass: used a really shitty Behringer guitar link usb that i just plugged into my guitar, i tried to mic my amp (fender frontman 212r) but couldn't get it to sound right, same with bass, then used logic presets old school punk and rock stack bass
(A huge problem i'm having is mixing in the bass)

Vocals: blue snowball again,

the only other mics i have are 30 buck audio technicas, anyway i could use those and get a good/better quality, id also like to get a less polished sound, idk it sounds overproduced

help?

You need to copy the public link from drop box.

And this isn't what you want to hear, but crap in is crap out. Can't really help till we can hear the clip tho!

+1,

I'm also confused as to why you spent $500 on recording software, but <$200 on cheap recording gear. Seems a bit wonky to me

Demo is always a demo. As long as you can hear what the songs sound like then it shouldn't matter.


Unless you're gonna use it to book gigs, in which case you probably want something that'll give a good impression of your live performance.

Honestly, that sounds pretty good for the gear you used to record. Much better than most I've heard from people who have much more respectable setups

I could work on it for you if you send me the logic file, I'm very good with logic and production and I'd love to

It lacks alot of punch, drums don't sound tooo bad, you might be able to save them. Compress the guitars with a quick attack, and a medium(.182 ms) release, will bring them out more, same with the bass guitar, and you might as well compress the drums to bring them out a little more...

Your vocals actually sound quite good, I'd leave them as is.
