    Soundclick... weird quality - Damnit, the song cuts short. Anyway, you get an idea for the mix. It cuts out before the best parts though!!!! Just download from the YSI link

    I've got a 320kbps bitrate file here for your review. I think it's a relatively solid mix but it feels like there are some things that it's missing. I know that the toms need work, and I was wondering if I could get some tips on how to get them to sound more airy, but at the same time HUGE. Like they're right in front of you. Anyway, I would appreciate any help you can offer on this mix, as all I have to reference with is two car systems, a set of headphones, and terrible PC speakers.

    So I guess no one's actually listened yet? Or I'm barking up the wrong tree?

    hey man..

    first off this song is really cool.. very mogwai.. if you don't know mogwai you need to but with a song like this you likely already listen to them. one of my favs

    ok back on track
    this is definately getting there... my biggest concern with the overal sound is the guitar sound.. well the distortion sound in particular.. you're likely wanting a huge guitar sound but the guitars sound a little bit muddy..... truthfully i'm not 100% sure what you need to do.. i'm fighting with the exact same problem on one of my mixes right now.. (unfortunately it's on a very poorly played hardcore song and not something that's as great to listen to as this song)

    Personally i think the snare needs to be a bit punchier..

    you're definately on the right track.

    Thanks for listening, there's definitely a Mogwai influence in how we're trying to record guitars (trying to get that wall of guitars sound that Mogwai gets live). Will definitely be working on the snare. Again, thanks for listening and for the compliments, they make me feel all warm inside.

    Thanks, much appreciation. Any input on what you'd do differently with the mix?
