    Whose? The drummer? Drummers cant get girls

    Its ok, it needs much louder vocals. MUCH louder. They are a lil dry too. The other stuff is fine.

    Cool tune, man. Good energy. Love the drumming. I don't mind the vocal level, but they are a bit dry. For this style of music, dry vox might be what you want though. Can't really find anything to improve on, I like the energy of the tune, it rocks.

    Hey thx man , your comments are really worth the 8 hours of work we put into this 45 second song

    Any comments beside the vocals would be nice...
    fe.: I think I overcompressed the overheads a bit.

    Very cool. Raise the vox quite a bit. Cool song, cool playing. Maybe, the snare can be a touch thinner. Just my opinion. Not an authoritative opinion in anyway. .

    Hey thx for the replys m8's


    Not to be cocky but...

    What could I improve to make it sound like a real professional recording.
    I mean like Greenday,Blink,Sum 41,NOFX... the hyper-commercial bands.


    Anyways on the vocals it is very clear what I need: A BETTER SINGER :P

    Guitars:
    SM57 on a Gibson Les Paul , Mesa Boogie dual rectifier.
    I really don't think there is any gear that is like twice as good.
    (at least when we are leaving taste in the middle)
    Would the Sound Projects C1 contribute to a better sound as a room mic?

    Drums:
    Samples?!

    I'm a true pro, I play on 56 commercial cds and play 200 shows a year.

    Better gear never hurts, its a matter of using the gear to the best of your ability. What are your monitors?


    Lemme put it this way:

    If you couldnt hear the levels of the vocals on this, something is wrong. I know, you keep saying " you got it" but if you put it out in the first place than either you need better monitors or arent using the ones you have very well.

    The "true pros" usually take weeks or months with a song.
