    heres a rundown on how things are panned.
    guitar left=65% left
    guitar right=65%right
    bass=center
    drums, all drums are midi and are on one track so i have no individual control over them. they are panned center.
    main vox=6%l
    1 chorus= 25%r
    2 chorus=25%l
    intro guitar lead=29%l
    hook lead=24%r

    this is exactly how i have it, does anyone have any suggestions to do it differently. volume adjustments on any levels. the guitars are all ran into the computer thru my zoom gfx8 floorboard which has cabinet emulation with speaker depth control and alot of other goodies. i was thinking about possibly re-recording the right guitar track with my amp and try mic-ing it. i dont have a good mic here though and would have to go and rent one. thanks guys god bless tim pate

    I'm not an expert in mixing, but the the vocals are WAY too much in the front(compared to the rest) and also too soft -- maybe some screaming or at least singing loud instead of mixing it loud could help -- on the other hand, the guits+drums seem to be recorded to low cause it's lotta backgrund noise, and they're too soft(no mids?) also..
    hope it helps someway
    cheers

    thanks for the comments groove, i cut the mids on the intro lead guitar because it was so bitey. i had to make a cut on the rythm guitars because they had to much lows in them and were killing the drums and bass guitar badly. i also cut some of the lows outta the bass because it to was beating up on the drums. we are shooting for a sorta evanessence kinda vocal sound and i know she is capable of it if she pushes it a little. i wasnt realy happy with the vox either, she didnt push it as hard as i know she can and ive heard her do it before.what im gonna do is get her to resing it if i can with a more pushing it feel.if you guys havnt checked out evanessence yet you should they realy rock and they got a female singer(check out the song bring me to life,from the movie daredevil) it tottaly rocks.and again i thank you for the comments and maybe when we get the backing vox in here it will sound more meaty because my bass player can sing awesome. im gonna put a few growls in here to.

    toki, im looking forward to you listening youve realy helped me alot in the pasy with my mixesand i thank you alot. and of course i would buy you a orange pop and a bucket of chicken. again thanks for your help on this project. god bless tim pate

    Kind of a cool feel to the song. I rather liked it. I liked the rhythm guits. The doubled sound is real nice. Not a lot of beef to them, but I still liked them.

    I didn't hear previous versions of the the song, but the lead guit is still a little abrasive. Just a little though. Good playing on it.

    The vocals are kind of weird. The syncing on them is very good (they're doubled right?). But they kind of have a "Chipmunks" feel to them. Not sure why. What effects were used? Do they sound that way if only one of the vocal tracks are played?

    better mix, but not there yet.. The vocals are still too loud in most spots..The rhythm guitars are too low, but they are also harsh sounding in spots.. I would start the mix from scratch without using any extra e.q. at all anywhere except at the source.. even if that means rerecording the rhythms.. Listen to *this mix* knowing the rhythm guitars are too low but also a bit harsh, and the vocals are too loud.. The singer is not the problem here imhop, it's the mix.. You may have to ride the faders if you cant find a good compression setting for vocals.. I mainly use presets when using compression on vocals..

    hmmm. chipmunk sounding lol,i like that. i used chorus on her vocals to thicken them up a bit,chipmunks lol i hear it now. i never noticed that before. i put a splash of reverb on the vox to, the he died for you part is doubled and on that i used a little bit different sorta chorus than on the main vox to give it a seperation sorta feel. i also added the echo on the word live. which im not sure if i like the echo now but i worked on it for like 4 hours straight cutting frequencies and such and my ears were burned out when i added it. i guess it sounds ok? i agree about the rythm guitars not being real beefy, i had to cut alot of lows outta them to uncover the drums and bass guitar that they lost alot of there air so to say. i was wondering what would happen if i added two more guitar tracks and panned them just a little behind the other two with a fatter sound? any ideas on this anyone. i realy like the beefy driven sound of pounding guitars in my mix. but i couldnt achieve that here because it drowned the drums and bass lol.
    although i know bands like metallica achieve it, thats sorta the sound i like is metallicas guitars, they sound so fat and driven but yet they dont cover up or step on the mix? how the heck they do that. anyway thanks for the listen and god bless.
