Spede: Sounds like you did some EQ on the drums; I hear what yer goin for, altho' I personally like more of a integrated kit sound, but yer frequency-separation and highlight of the snare is impressive. Nice job on cleaning up the vox, and the bass - I found the bass in particular a bit muddy, and still, in my mix.
Thanks. I added some of my own amp sims to the bass, since I couldn't get the original amp signal to work with the DI (No matter what I did, they
always seemed to eat each others lowest octave away). I've also added exciter great deal, actually so much that it's contributing to the bass distortion
To be precise I didn't do almost anything to the vocals, apart from little compression and cleaning EQ; everything else has been trimmed quite a lot to
pave way for those incredible vocals.
Yeah, the bass is pretty "heavy" on the low end
but in this kind of genre it's okay to have little extra oomph in there. IMO problems rise when you pan
them to the edges occasionally. That's where the muddiness starts to show it's ugly rear IMO.
Using lots of pannigs in the guitars is pretty neat feat here to get some dynamics out of this song. But it feels, that when they center, they drop in volume.
So I guess you should pay more attention to the guitar volumes when panning them back and forth.
Those vocal delays are working very well in the middle eight! Good job there!
These drums really need to be recut. The timing is shaky. What's with the wimpy snare hits and loud cymbal smashing in the chorus? Unusable.
Great vocals, like everyone said! Reminds me so much of Tool. This guy needs to find another band IMO!
One of the guitars is very fizzy, possibly from clipping, or just too overdriven.
The bass timing is really off.
Well, I guess since this is what we get, this is what the band is happy for. I tightened the band just a little bit with moving guitars and snare hits here and
there to get rid of most dramatic flamming effects. Snare can always be augmented with a touch of sample if necessary. Fizzyness can always be eased
with little dipping eq in the 4kHz (eased for me
We can't do everything, but we can do something.
