    I have done another mix of this .I am updating the mp3 Working with new guitar preamp . Running that through a cab sim and NY comp . The bass is going to be re-tracked . And with my kinda shitty monitors its hard to balance the low end . Looking for helpful feedback Thanks for checking it out . This song is something we just did for fun . I am trying to build a drum template for a number of originals .
    Reaper / Superior drums / Digitech 2112-catharsis cab irs / lexicon interface /

    Sounds pretty slayery to me. Maybe you could just brighten the guitars a tiny bit and reduce the volume/velocity of the toms, they seem to be louder than the snare. I think it's a very good cover.

    If you listen to the original the toms really poke through like that . I think when we put the vocals on it it will be fine . But thanks for checking it out

    The other thing about this is that I did not put it through mastering yet which will brighten everything up .

    Good playing.

    Guitar sounded pretty good. Maybe just a little too much gain?

    The bass was a little indistinct. It didn't muddy or boomy. But it was kind of low in the mix and almost sounded like a drone note.

    Well because it's the only thing I have to work with . It's an acoustic bass run through all kinds of stuff . It's very hard to get a solid tone out of it It has a peizo pick up that picks up everything including the monitors . lol . It has a low mid thing that builds up aroung 120 -150hz and another at 300 hz. as much as I had to scoop out of it . Its amazing you can hear it at all
    I can bring it up a tad . But we are gonna put a real bass track on it . But thank you for your advice !!

    The gain is kinda fixed . I would have to retrack it to bring it down . I might do that though . Thanks !!

    Listened the second mix. Bringing back memories! They had a distinct sound, and your real close. I really dig it! Great playing!

    Really tight-amazing playing. The timing is very good. I like the drum sound very good precise clean sounds which match the music. One thing I notice is that every cymbal hit is the same cymbal? I used to get caught with my midi kit that only had 1 crash having that same cymbal, same spot every time, might be good to spread some around. Bass, you might try distorting the bass? I have a tech 21 direct bass driver box that gets great distortion, might be a good investment, you could better record a sound that has a place rather than trying to fix in the mix. Anyways really excellent playing, the band would be honored I'm sure.

    Yea we are gonna retrack the bass with a " real " bass lol . that will make a lot of difference . Hmm i need to go back through this and look at the cymbal choices . My drummer actually sat down and " clicked " this one in with a mouse . lol And maybe when we play it he may in fact use just that one crash.I guess I never noticed unless he missed it But thats a great point ! Me im just a guitard .lol not really a drummer . I'm great with editing whats there but , writing drums i'm just a novice .
    Wow thank you for the compliment . Ive been playing that stuff since it came out . lol I will post it again when we get vocals and bass in there
