    Mix my song?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I was wondering if its possible that anyone could mix this song for me. I did a pretty rough mix myself and I want to compare it to some other people. I apologize about the drums, I only had an overhead and a kickdrum mic. Let me know if anyone could help me out with it... thanks :]

    Here is a link to the files (RAR file):

    old files:

    new files (seperate overhead and kick tracks):

    thats pretty good!!! better than mine. i'm still new to the whole mixing thing really, but have been recording for a while. i forgot to make the overhead and the kickdrum a seperate track, so i might re-upload a new RAR tomorrow with the drum track split up.

    i'm also buying a firepod soon so i might redo a few things with the song. we will see... as far as the volume of the files go -- does that matter at all?

    Here is a 5 minute mix. You need to record mono files, not stereo. Also, the kick separated would be MUCH better.

    I'll do some more work tommorow when I can use my monitirs, and have some more time.

    It might be helpful if told us the reason, why some instruments are split to several files. Is it intended for different effects or panning? Or is it just the way it was recorded?

    That would be a good idea indeed.

    Don't change it. If it will do anything to the tracks, than it is a decrease in quality.

    I am going to be reuploading the new RAR file here in a couple hours. I would love it if you guys would give it another shot. It will have the drums seperated into the overhead and the kick.

    I am going to invest in a Presonus Firepod here in the next week or so, so we might redo a lot of the tracks. The timing is off at points, anyways.

    Thanks a lot guys! Will update this again soon!
