Hey dudes,

Just finished up my first ever recording project. Me and the singer of my band decided to try Parkway Drives Idols and Anchors to practice my recording/mixing for our upcoming self produced demo for our band. This is a pretty kickass song! Check it out

Gear used:
Jackson DK2M Pro
Line 6 UX2 with Pod Farm
EZ Drummer - Drumkit From Hell
Acid Pro 7 with various VSTs
Apex condenser Mic


Also, I played it in drop C tuning (the origional is in B)
I did this because I didnt want to reset my bridge and change string gauge for the sake of recording one song. Plus I use this guitar with my band all the time in C tuning. Enjoy!

Thanks!

Good playing, and good cover overall. I would say that the guitar tones might have been a bit too bass-y, so maybe lower the lows, but that's sort of my opinion I suppose. Also, some of the drum mixing isn't the best. The snare wasn't very prominent, and during some parts I could barely hear it at all. The snare itself isn't the best sounding anyway, but yeah, try and beef the snare up and add a little reverb. Pretty good job overall

Thanks man. I agree the snare sounds like shit, I was really disappointed how the snares sound on EZ Drummers Drumkit From Hell after what I spent to buy it and all the awesome reviews its gotten. I tryed EQing it and I did add a bit of reverb, but it didnt help too much.

Thanks for listening man.

I can tell almost instantly that you alternate picked it all. Whilst you played it fine, it really takes away from a shitload of the aggression that the song so desperately needs.
