    Sounds pretty cool. The drums are a bit dark for my likings, but it's not that bad. Everything else sounds pretty good.

    seemspretty good, id bring up the snare and the overheads though as the cymbals are hard to hear and sometimes the snare getss drowned out, maybe give it slight boosts around 2.5khz and 200hz, (the snare i mean)

    Thanks for the listens you guys!


    I will egt to work on this tomorrow, and will take the advice on the snare - see where that takes me. the problems with the overheads is that the HiHat is awfully loud in them so i dont want it drowning out everything else...

    as far as uploading tracks im having sme band with problems and will upload the siht at work when i have some fere time.

    thanks again for the listens!

    Good performances. Nice energy in the song.

    I thought the guitars in general had to much distortion on them. Dial down the gain a bit when you're recording.

    The snare is a little dull. You might be able to notch out something around 180 - 200hz and brighten it up a bit. Not sure though. Drummer was good.

    Something about the toms wasn't right. They had a real clickiness to them. You can hear it on the outer edges of the stereo spread whenever the toms are used.

    Vocals could probably come up just a little bit.

    Sounding good polska .

    Performances are good. I like the drums in particular, but I agree that they are a bit dark (for my taste anyway), particularly the snare. The cymbals however sound fine to me as is...odd. Tons of energy...sounds like fun.
