Hey guys,

I did a quick recording over the latest metal drum track that Cosmin shared. It's just a rhythm guitar for now. I will work on this more after i have done with my finals smile.gif Hope you like smile.gif

Nice work so far.

Clean up that tone, work on some palm muting (with both hands) to get it tighter and it would sound pretty sweet.

Nice writing and playing! wink.gif I think Tyler is right, your strings do sound out of tune. It's a good idea to fully tune up before recording anything. Really, before even practicing. If you get used to playing on a guitar that's out of tune, your ear get's used to it as well. It's easy to fix but an important habit to remember.

Hey man! biggrin.gif

nice one! I think Todd and the guys just about covered up what was important about the take smile.gif I am hoping to hear each take done by you over this track and get to see the improvement wink.gif tongue.gif

Otherwise, tomorrow I am having a video chat and in order to give everyone a boost, we could discuss around the drumtracks!

Composition and riffing will be on the menu tongue.gif

cheerios and hope to have you on the chat tomorrow evening biggrin.gif

Cosmin

Nice job man! Although the tone is not that great, what's with the mix, it sounds overcompressed?

Thanks Ivan. I think it's because overcompression. I mixed this with my laptop's monitors smile.gif And i am also new to mixing smile.gif But i have the original recordings in my computer so i will try until i get the perfect tone. Can you give me some advice if you don't mind?

Dogukan,

Not had a chance to listen to this but by overcompressed I'd assume Ivan means that you've killed the natural dynamics. That's probably because of several things -

1/ you have your levels too high and so either hit digital zero or have to limit the track to avoid it.
At tracking and mixing IMHO you rarely, if ever, need to use a limiter if you get your levels right for guitar. If you're using one then stop, take it off and sort out the levels properly. Don't go for volume at mixing - that's done at mastering - go for a clean, dynamic, undistorted mix.

2/ you have a compressor on the track and have the ratio setting and makeup incorrect.

3/ as above but also with the attack and release.

4/ if you are using a compressor you're not mixing into it but mixing and then adding it and then adjusting the mix again.

5/ similar to 4, you have the compressor set post something and then adjust that thing but don't adjust the comp accordingly.

6/ the mp3 encoding has added to much additional compression and summing gain. You need to account for this prior to rendering to mp3.

Sure you know this but mixing on laptop speakers isn't likely to lead to a good result as they simply can't reproduce the audio well enough. If you can't hear the mix clearly and acurately you can't make properly informed decisions about what to do.

Thanks for the advices Tony smile.gif I know that mixing on laptop speakers is not an option to get good sounds. But since i don't have professional monitors i have to mix this on laptop until i get some sad.gif
