Hey guys,

Opinions on this mix? It's from the same EP as Wolves that I posted in another thread. This one was a bit more of a challenge.. I'd love to hear what you think!!

Snare -1 dB and it's perfect.
The song is great also, but the hi-hat beat in the beginning is like it's coming from another song.

Could you please a screenshot of the mixer, showing what effects you used on each channel?

Alright, I'll have another listen to that snare.

Do you mean what the drummer is playing in the intro, or the way it sounds?

You want me to give up all my secrets?! Come on now! Just kidding, I'll see what I can do.

I mean what the drummer plays. It's a little bit odd.

We're a community, with a common target: To record and make music sound good.
I'm not going to steal your clients, anyway. I live too far away...  :D

Have you recorded and mixed any other bands?
Your job seems great. I would like to listen more!! ;)

Yeah, what he plays is what I have. Oh well on that.

I was just fooling around. I pulled up that project after you asked to see if I could get some shots but I didn't have time to do it before I left for work. It will have to be about 5 pictures though because there are so many track in the mixer including audio, fx, and buses. It might be a bit confusing so I'll have to explain. Unless you use Cubase, which would make it much simpler.

Btw, this is no job! I'm a novice man! I don't have any sort of high end equipment or spaces.. I've just busted my ass to learn the ins and outs of making some alright tracks. Constant reading of anything I can get my hands on, as well as tons and tons of videos. No clients, I do all this for free!

I've recorded/mixed 2 other tracks for one other group of friends. They aren't a serious band, we were just fooling around. Aside from that, I've done a bunch of mixes from this site and anywhere else I can snatch a multitrack from  ;D
You can hear those here:

Btw, do you have a site somewhere that I can hear more of your work on?

I don't have any site. I'm just fooling around, hoping some day I will do this for a living or at least get money out from it.
The only recordings I made myself are from 3-4 years back with a Zoom recorder that I don't have permission to post.
Since then I've got more equipment but currently I have no time to record bands.

I don't have cubase, so I guess both?

Do you suggest any specific good books about mixing I can get and read?

The two songs you posted sound good!

Yeah, I'm the same way. I'd love to do it for real, and I plan to pursue that after life settles down some, but for now, it's the best hobby I've ever had.

Alright, I'll try to get some screenshots and label things a little so it's easy to pick things out. It might be a few days. I have a pretty full load right now.

I suggest reading "Mixing secrets for the small studio" by Mike Senior. He's been around the block more than a few times. With the basic's under your belt, this will put someone in a whole new dimension. At least IMO. http://www.amazon.com/Mixing-Secrets-Small-Studio-Senior/dp/0240815807

Also, check out "The recording revolution" on youtube. That guy has taught me A TON of what I do and know.. His "5 minutes to a better mix" series is killer.  For even more in-depth info, his blog is stuffed full of articles and the like. http://therecordingrevolution.com/

Have fun spending the next 2 months learning!  ;D

Nice and clean mix! I think the bass in the kick drum is kinda muddy though and feels like it's smeared too
