I was just in the chat talking to Pedja, and he said he wanted to hear what I've been working on..
So here it is for everyone to laugh at laugh.gif

I started mixing their first song today, and although I'm not finished it's progressing well..
I'll include a clip of one of their songs before I started mixing (they added some effects on some tracks but...),
so you can hear what I have to work with and how I've improved it (hopefully) tongue.gif

Before mix: Attached File  demorecording.mp3 ( 1.28MB ) Number of downloads: 244

After mix: Attached File  overtest.mp3 ( 9.61MB ) Number of downloads: 275



After mix 2: Attached File  overtest_2.mp3 ( 5.76MB ) Number of downloads: 177

After mix 3: Attached File  overtest_4.mp3 ( 9.61MB ) Number of downloads: 168

Final mix (at least for now): Attached File  Overthrow___Allegiance_To_The_Crown.mp3 ( 9.61MB ) Number of downloads: 282


Hope you like both the song and what I've done so far smile.gif

Oh, and constructive critisism, suggestions, praise (tongue.gif) etc., are welcome!


Edit: Added another mp3, with slightly different mix. Hopefully it sounds even better smile.gif

Edit: Added even another mp3, with a better snare, better vocals and overall better volume adjustment between tracks. I'm only using the Logic and Cubase built in plug-ins, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to get it any better biggrin.gif
Comments and suggestions are welcome though, if you like it or think something should be done differently smile.gif

Edit: Added the "final mix", and this one sounds pretty good if I may say so myself tongue.gif
The guys in the band loved it, so I must've done something right smile.gif
I'll start a new song tomorrow, and let this one rest. But by all means, if you have any suggestions to make it better..
Let me know wink.gif

Great job! You really know what you're doing. I dont know much bout this music, but the snare is a little bit "poppy" or dry, but maybe it shall be this way??? It seems that U put the vocals a little bit more in the foreground in the last mix, which i prefer. Other songs in this genre that i've heard, put more focus on the guitar than the vocals which I believe is wrong. Please put up that blog !!!! I have a pretty decent recording equipment and it will be fun to share some experiences !!!! smile.gif

And still, I think voice should be higher laugh.gif
