K.H.E where were you a few months ago?! :P ahah. Those drums sound incredible! What're you doing in terms of samples and reverb?

thanks man!  :D
to be honest, i've had to sample-replace all the drum-shells... :-\ normally i try to avoid this, but in this case the real drumsounds didn't work for the sound i was looking for.
i layerd multiple close-samples and added a nice room-sample. kicks are mostly slate-samples, snare are three free-snares i've found in the www, toms are again slate. (i don't like slate's snares... strange i know ;))
not so much processing on the close-tracks, just some eq-cuts and a little paralell-comp + saturation. and some nice parallel-comp(multiband) + saturation on the drum-bus (driven pretty aressive).
no additional reverb this time ;)

i should check this forum more often for constests like this ;)

cheers, khe  :)

Hi there !

Was really nice mixing that song !
Did it in 4 hours in the box only, using Samplitude Pro X and a bunch of waves and sonnox plugins.

Any comment ?

Hello. Here's my mixes from these songs. This project has acted as a reminder of how this kind of music should be mixed. Lately I've trying to go with
"less compression" route, but it seems that is simply not the ultimate solution here :)'s%20Words%20MIX_290512.m4a
