    A band I'm tracking

    A good friend of mine's son has a band and they've just had their first recording experience here. He's the drummer and maybe it's just me, but I think he kicks ass. The oldest person in the band is 18. Any comments are always welcome. It's called "Waiting For You".

    Nice job with the tracking, TR.

    I like the way they come out of the opening theme into the first break. It actually creates some tension that a lot of pop rock breaks don't manage to get, IMO.

    Ya they sound great! Also, great job recording them, again. Guitars sound terrific.

    I don't like the bass sound. It's too grindy to me. Like the cones are crying out for help or something. I could go for something cleaner if possible. It's mostly during the verses...sounds somewhat out of place. It may also be what's making me feel like the louder sections (chorus) are getting too muddy, crowded. I don't know...

    Damn, these guys are terrific. They should stay together as long as they can.

    Thanks for sharing man!

    This is Great!

    I would like to see a tad more snap to the snare... just a touch more hi eq...

    And........ a tad more bass drum...

    Everything else is perfect!!!!!!

    Great song... I am hearing Weezer and a bunch of others in this...



    BTW... The drummer is fucking smazing!!!!!!!!

    Joe..


    Oh.. One more thing....Man that drummer ripped... I am still in awe.

    I'll pass on the compliments.
    I agree on the snap in the snare Joe. He has a heavy pair of hats and it was so much in the snare mic. Dial in the snare and the hat would make you bleed from your eyes.

    Cool

    that rocks....

    you/they got some killer tones for this....drums, guitars, everything......

    i listened on a regular hi-fi on my usual settings and the bass guitar seems to control the low end....i rather see a better bass/kick relationship, but if that was a mix decision, thats cool....

    good stuff....

    Hey Mr. Rat:

    What the hell am I gonna' tell YOU?!?!?! LOL. Recording sounds great. The weak link is the vocal when he's singing lower. I'm hearing some pitch weirdness

    BY these questions that LEAD to nothing...

    now it's OVER...

    You know, the bolded words...It's hard singing in somebody else's studio...not much you can do about that.



































    (well, there's always that nasty Antares gadget, but I don't wanna' start a flame-fest, lol)
































    In summation KICK ASS RECORDING

    everything sounds good to me except the drums.. pretty cool song.. I'm sure it's probably an accurate picture of what they sounded like, but the snare drum doesn't sound good on a recording, and the bass drum sounds low.. the bass doesn't sound too hot either, but overall it sounds good.. I'm probably just looking to break chops today!

    so i listened to this last night...i must have tried to kill myself about ohhh....5 maybe 6 times...but luckily for me im so old and slow...i missed ...

    very cool song i thought....

    on to the mixing....

    now you have heard mine so ...keep that in consideration:
    the bass drum is too low and spanky....if it was fuller especially on the chorus it would kill....

    oh and just because you CAN play double bass doesnt mean you SHOULD .....lol...i thought that part sorta stuck out...not that its not cool mind you just seemed a bit too heavy for the song...

    the guitars sound perfect....no complaints at all..

    bass could be bigger in the verse section where its a bit more sparse...seems like it would fill a lot in just with the bass being bigger...but the tone of the bass is really really cool..

    is ther anything at all on the vocals..???...reverb or anything?..cause if there is it is nicely done as i cant even tell..

    oh i just realized on the 5th listen that i LOVE the sound of the cymbals as well....


    man if my freind had a dad ....and that dad could do this....i would probably mow his lwan for free for a WHOLE SUMMER.......lol

    nice work rat track...

    jamal
