    Need Help, Please

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey all, I need some help on this mix.
    I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to improve it.
    The main thing I can tell is the guitars need to be brighter...
    But other than that I need some help.

    There's no vocals yet as I'd like to get a better mix
    Before I ruin it with my crappy voice...

    Thanks in advance...

    It's the top one on the list called "Afraid Music New"

    Thanks, again.

    I liked this song.
    Kind of hardcore/punk thing.
    Kit sounds good.
    Little more 5-7k on the snare might be nice.
    Only thing id say is the guitars sound a little cheap, in terms of the distortion sound itself.
    A tube amp would do nicely here.
    It sounded like you used a Boss metal Zone?
    Other than that id say nice balance/good song.

    Nice work.

    Cool thanks for the thoughts, yep metal zone.

    For the distortion tone, whatcha thinking?
    Need more chunk? More grit?

    Hmm just sound like you turned up the guitar part in the mix to me.
    Wich buried the drums a little too much for my taste.
    Do you not have a tube amp?

    Of course not... I have 1 amp. An early 70's Kustum 150W 2x12.
    I record direct (clean) then "re-amp" with effects.
