Well, I actually have at least though of it ;) I need to ask my mates of course. But I think it should not be a problem.

Hi drumanima !

Thanks a lot for your feedback.
In the meantime, I've recorded the vocals, and have done another mix from (almost) scratch. The band were very happy with the new mix :)

For the guitars, I kept one of them on the right during the first verse, and replaced the left one with the rhythmic guitar from second verse. As they're very different, it now sounds very wide.
Low cuts were set a bit to high, so I changed them and now the low ends have more impact.

For drums, I used less compression on the snare and kick. They feel more natural, but still with impact. I used a short reverb, we're not really fan of big 80's reverb  ;D

We will put the whole song on our Facebook this thursday at 5 pm (GMT+1). You will find it here : www.facebook.com/perpetualescape

Oops, I meant won't master myself  ;D

It will definitively be mastered, but in a soft way, we don't want too much compression and be part of the loudness war ! We want to keep the dynamics as much as we can.

Hi Padraig

Thanks a lot for your comment ! Actually I did not use any limiter yet, so output is set up to -8dB or so. I probably won't master the album, so that's why I don't use the limiter to listen to my mixes.

Drums are so hard to deal with ! Especially when they're real acoustics. I made some improvements here and there since the time I posted this thread. I will upload a new mix when vocals will be done.

Cheers !

Hi !

Very nice ! A bit too much bright for my taste, but very nice !

Hi Antoine !

To me, the main problem for his mix is the balance between each instrument, especially drums. Kick and snare are too much behind the rest, but cymbals and hi hat are too much in front, and a bit harsh. There is also too much compression, it's like the kit is pumped.

The stereo image is very good ! For the sax, I find it a bit muddy, maybe some top ends would help it to pop more in the mix. I also would add some reverb on it.

I heard here and there that at ribbon mic is awesome for horns. If you have some, you can try it ?

Hi folks !

I would like you to listen to my current mix of this song called These Days. It's only instrumental for now, vocals have not been recorded yet. It will be done by the end of April.

Just to let you know, the keys are not definitive yet, I will probably change some pads and arrangements. The guitarist wanted that big reverb and delay for the last part, so it's absolutely normal if it's drowned like this.

Drums are real acoustics. My kit is a Pearl Masters Custom, recorded with KSM137 as OHs, SM81 on hi hat, SM57s on snares, D112 on kick, e609 on rack toms and Opus 88 on floor toms. No drum room mic.
Guitars and bass were recorded with a Berhinger B1 and e906.

I used a Focusrite Saffire Pro 24 coupled with a Berhinger ADA8200 to get 8 extra inputs.
