We just finished our CD and they have finally made it available on Itunes! This is my first album on Itunes so I'm pretty excited.

The entire Album was DIY, I did send the tracks out for mixing and mastering though.

Some Techy info:
Kick was a D4 through a Millenia Pre
Snare top was a 57 through a Chandler TG-2
Snare bottom was an old senheiser through a Chandler TG-2
Overheads, 414 through the Chandler again (kinda had a theme going here)
Toms, 421's through some Digitechs
Bass, RE27 through the A&H board+one Radial DI and a Sansamp DI
Guitars were recorded direct with a Radial and reamped by our mixing engineer
Vocals were SM7 through a Chandler

All Layout and cover design was designed by my wife.
Photography was done by our singers wife.

Sorry for the crappy myspace links, I can't access any file sharing site from work :( I guess I should get back to work!

Nice clean, clear sound. Don't know how much was cleaned up in the mastering stages but this sounds nice. This is just a preference more than a critique...i think the snare could be a little more cracky and less "tubby/boxy" Again a preference as this is very well done. Nice job!!!!

Hey thanks! We had a VERY good mixer/masterer on this, he did both.

It's actually the snare itself, it is a very deep brass snare, there isn't much crack there! All drums are real, no sampling was done on these.

The sound is great regardless. Everything is nice. I personally like to sample drums out of ease and sound quality, but this is stellar especially for being a true acoustic drum setup. Again nice job. If you get a chance i got a song up on here, it's a cover but let me know what you think of the quality of the mix, and performance. Thanks

I'm not crazy about those mixes. I love punk and hard rock, and your music is being done a disservice with these sub-par mixes. The bass is muddy. The kick it present but it sounds boxy. I think they could be way better. It's like whoever mixed this spent all of their time on vocals and guitars, and gave the drums and bass only halfassed attention.
