    Get out of here suprstar that was great!
    That whole composition took off where Jefferson Airplane left off., Before they turned in to starship.
    I can see your concern with the drums they don't pop out enough, I do like them right after the guitar solo.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    Sounds pretty good to me man! One suggestion: either dryer lead vox, or wetter guitars. The guitars "feel" closer to me than the singer does. I'm a guitarist and I love a good guitar part--but I'm thinking the vocalist should be in front.

    Good stuff!

    Pretty good song (now what was the name of that irish one-hit-wonder band ....? Very similar style). Singer has some pitch problems, although her voice is pretty particular. Reverb is a question of taste IMHO, some like a lot, some like a little, so I guess that's up to you. I especially liked the clean guitar and the drums sound pretty good. Getting better all the time.....

    Yikes, those are some bad vocals.

    The drums sound weird and unnatural, which for me, is really screwing this mix up. Too isolated/gated with a really weird overhead presence. Are these real drums? They don't really sound totally fake, but they don't really sound real either. You have entered some weird new drum sound dimension. There's no "glue" holding the kit together. It just sounds like isolated samples pasted into place. I used to try recording my drums with only close mics and letting the bleed be the "overheads" and my results sounded just like this weirdness.

    I think the guitars sound okay for the most part. They're a little generic, but not bad. Bass seems pretty good. The vocals are too wet compared to the rest of the mix, but they're so bad it doesn't even really matter. The song is a little too long, too repetitive, and it goes nowhere. There's no build ups or breakdowns besides the clean verse/distorted chorus which gets old fast.

    thanks for the feedback. gerg - vox are bad as in sung bad, or u dont like the fx or ? No the drums arent real, it's still v-drums and midi, it's all I got... I worked pretty hard on the drum mix too, I looped a bass drum and played it along with a song I like the drum mix for, and tried to get it to sound as close as possible. Same for snare and the rest..... At least this time you didnt KNOW they were fake, so it's an improvement!

    Yes, sung bad.

    I don't know what to say about the drums. Try better cymbal samples maybe?

    i think she sounds good during the choruses but she's all over the place during the verses...especially the beginning of each line...


    she can obviously sing so she needs to tighten this up more or you need to get some pitch correction tools..and although I like reverb I think its far too strong here, even though I expect its kinda what your looking for...Id use a bit of delay instead if it were mine


    the guitar could do with more spread out imo, it seems to be very boxed into its only little place in the mix

    Gregs on the drums...I thought they sounded good apart from the cymbals, they were a bit lifeless...

    A good mix and composition overall just needs more work and some tracking/pitch correction on the vocals...nice one
