    hello, as you may or may not have read im currently doing a few tracks for a friends band , i sent them a sample and its turned up on myspace! there's some sparkle missing from the drums which i will blame on myspace, and the drums are quite heavily compressed (damm roland everything on 1 track)

    soooooo nice and harsh comments welcome.

    my track is groove at the bottom

    Simon is the nasty dude from "Idol". "That was awwwwful"

    The fellers need a whipsaw/producer's talent-type to organize things and restrain the 'flourish' in the playing....and some experience in making bad music...and then good music...then being able to tell the diff, at some point.

    I reckon an artful engineer could assemble something nice out of what they played....but, man, that was bad in so many ways.

    An early attempt on the learning curve....

    I don't like to pan stuff w/o constructive suggestions.....but that would take a lot of bandwidth....

    Wow! After reading Jeff's comments, I though to myself "It can't be THAT bad". But I was wrong. I mean, I'm all for encouraging people to imrove, etc.... But I don't even know where I would start with this.

    I couldn't make it through the whole thing. If I were recording this, I'd start from scratch.

    Almost everything is wrong.

    There's nothing right about your mix. It's not entirely your fault if they gave you garbage to work with, but you have to accept a lot of blame because you weren't quite smart enough to turn them down. And if you did the tracking, well, you need to reconsider your methods. Seriously, do your ears work at all? Do you hear anything good about the mix? I don't. Nevermind that the music is unlistenable crap. The fucking mix is mono. Are we still in 1963? The source sounds are shit. Listen to those drums. What the fuck kind of shit is that? The snare sounds like a tupperware container. The guitar sounds awful. The band can't play in time. They suck. As an engineer/producer you have to notice these things and either fix them, or walk away. Use your ears.....unless of course they are defective.
