Sounds awesome. Personally I would
1. Turn the snare down a bit
2. Add some reverb to the center lead track that starts at 20 secs and lower the volume a bit to push it back and add more ambience
3. Take some of the delay off of the solo at 1:27, sounds too muddied/busy to clearly hear what's going on

But those are what I would do, not necessarily something you should.

Awesome song/mix, very powerful and it grooves like crazy.

Definitely much better, the snare is still too intrusive though.

Thanks guys. I'm going to pull down 800hz on the snare a little and maybe pull it down a little in the mix overall. I think it's pretty good for something I wrote in a couple hours though haha. Thanks for the help guys! I'll be sure to keep an eye on this thread to lend a helping hand to others too.

That crash is a bit distracting and sounds too much like a computer. Try humanizing the velocities on the drums. Also the guitars are a little muddy and the vocals kind of get lost a little because they are fighting the other frequencies in the mix. Try and get them to sit a little better. It does sound really good though, just picking it out.

A little verb on the snare would be cool to. It's pretty dry. It's also a little tight for my liking, i'd use something a little looser but that's personal preference.

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.



Thanks for listening man. I'm going to have another go at mixing it tomorrow or possibly tonight if I manage to get my other work done. If you can think of any tips/links/things I should read up on then please let me know, everything will be appreciated

Anybody care to crit my mix of a remix I did of Levels by Avicii? I don't really think I distributed reverb evenly over every single track that could use it, but for my first song that I've ever attempted to master, it turned out decent.
here it is: http://soundcloud.com/sickbeets/levels-remix-avicii
It was made in FL Studio 10 so incase anybody is wondering.

Hey guys,

Here's my cover of Boulevard Of Broken Dreams by Green Day. Thoughts on the mix? http://soundcloud.com/tomnomnom91/boulevard-of-broken-dreams

Everything was recorded and mixed in Pro Tools through a 24 channel Soundcraft desk.

The vocals were recorded using an AKG C414. The lead vocals were double tracked and panned left and right, then one of those tracks was duplicated on another channel, moved an eighth of a beat behind the other vocal tracks to create a slight delay effect, then the 'telephone' effect added by EQing out all the low and high ends. The main vocal tracks have the low end EQ'd out, and I've added extra reverb to the backing vocals to give them some depth.

The acoustic (Epiphone EJ-200) was recorded using 2 AKG C414s, one on the soundhole and the other on the neck, panned left and right, then compressed to give it a more "boxy" sound.

All electric guitars were recorded using 2 SM57s, one on each cone of a 300w Fender Twin Reverb. The guitar was a Fender Baja Telecaster, and the overdrive was achieved using a Boss OD-3. The tracks were then panned left and right, with the rights EQ'd with boosted lows and the lefts with boosted highs. Everything except the wah at the end was double tracked. The tremolo effect was created by recording sustained chords, then manually drawing in mute automation and looping it throughout the verses.

The bass (Fender Mike Dirnt Precision) was DI'd into the desk and double tracked, played once with fingers and once with a pick, then the two were EQ'd and blended.

The drums are MIDI sampled, with the snare taken from Green Day's 21st Century Breakdown sessions. Each part of the kit is on its own track, to allow greater control for volume, EQ and panning.

The piano part is a MIDI file written in Guitar Pro, then exported to Garageband. I then found a decent preset sound, fiddled with it a bit and exported as a WAV file, which was then dropped into the Pro Tools session and EQ'd again to fit the rest of the mix.

C4C, naturally.

Where did you get that Green day snare?
Double tracked bass!? Why?

IMO, the mix is bad. sorry

Tbh the guitar sounds fine, albeit quiet, I can't hear the bass at all...

The snare is technically a Slate sample, but it's based on their latest album and sounds exactly the same when unprocessed.

I double tracked the bass just to get the tone of playing with fingers and pick, but blended the two to sound like one bass.

What don't you like about the mix?

What are you listening through? The bass is reasonably prominent through my speakers and headphones, just sits unobtrusively in the mix.

What's wrong with the drum sounds specifically?

A pair of reasonably high quality stereo speakers and a transparent transistor Pre-Amp. I just can't really here the bass, maybe it's because the kick and snare for me are so over powering. The drums are extremely cutting and dominate the upper range of the mix.

Just uploaded my newest track simply titled "Punk Demo." Nothing flashy. Looking for crits on the mix. Will c4c.

http://www.reverbnation.com/whendsasterstrikes


My biggest issue with it is that the guitar is pushing the tempo and it doesn't end quite on the beat. Besides that, I'd take a some low mids out of the room mic for the drums, because the kick and snare (mainly the kick) are a little boxy/boomy. Some more high end on the kick to add attack, maybe even some on the snare and I think that would sound pretty good.

Opinions?
I did a lot of experimenting this time around, but I feel it's missing a lot of the middle frequencies. I dont know how to add them with compromising on tone. I dont think i worded that correctly but I think you should understand

http://soundcloud.com/mrsanjaykumar/aurora-unit-central-dynamo-1


My monitors aren't calibrated, but it sounds like the right guitar has more high end and the left guitar has more mids. Try to keep a similar tone across the tracks, otherwise one side may sound louder even if it isn't. Are you using EZ Drummer DFH?

The only thing I would do is maybe EQ the snaps of the pick hitting the strings down a little. Also you have a nice voice man, bring the vocals up a bit. Make them more in your face.

Damn dude this is brutal. I love it. Really really nice riffs, you've definitely earned my facebook like. I love that awkward vocal section before the little solo melody.

As for the mix, everything is perfect except the lead. I feel like it's a little too bland, I think you should add more mids to the lead.

Sweet! Thanks a lot bro! Really appreciate it! Yeah the lead could be a little sexier for sure !

I don't know if it's because I have a serious ear infection, or what, but it sounds like the majority of the volume is in the left speaker. The tone is ok, could be better, thinking the mic isn't very good, but it's way to busy near the end.

That snare is pretty atrocious.. way too 80s haha. The kick also gets pretty buried.

Guitars and bass sound pretty nice, though it sounds like you've cut a few of the guitar pick transients when you were editing them!

Everything sounds spot on, bass has a nice grit to it, and the guitars are clear and tight. The OHs might have a little to much highs to them but that's minimal. I'd lower the highs just a bit on them.

Kick is a lot better but the snare still has that 80's power balled vibe going on that sounds super goofy in this context haha. I'd try less reverb and more room to get that big snare sound, it just seems so disconnected at the moment!

Sad thing is that I don't have a room mic on the snare since the room mic is in Superior and the snare is Slate. :/

To me the high mids are a bit too pronounced in the palm muting sections, and the low mids sound slightly cut.

Try a different snare man the 80's snare isn't working...
