editor- I listened to songs from both your posts. I like your stuff a lot.

marcus- cool songs. I agree with the vocals being a tad low.

plastik- nice work! I listened to the whole thing at work... glad I did.

I'm new to Pro Tools. Still trying to figure everything out. Here is a sample of a new tune we did using my system. Any tricks or advice you guys can offer to help me improve my mix as well as to improve the tonal quality let me know. Thanks!

Thanks for giving my stuff a listen. In answer to your question... I Started out on drums and guitar when I was a kid. Played drums professionally for several years, then switched to guitar and never turned back, I always sang, so I fronted my own bands, cover and original bands for several years.

I would consider myself a guitar player above all else. I played all the instruments on the posted files and wrote, sang, produced & engineered etc, etc, ... I like to work alone, because I tend to get obsessed with the song I am working on at the time, and go 1 or 3 days gulping way too much coffee and working, until I am done with a final mix.

I have written a song or two a week and recorded them, for the last ten years I am the only person who has ever heard them so its nice to get feed back from others. I know my stuff isn't for everyone, but if you don't like one I've got another, something for everyone tucked away somewhere. BTW: I am finding out that dat tape really does have a 10 year shelf life. I have a couple hundred dats each with 3 or 4 original songs on them, about a quarter of them have gone bad and will not play back without digital hash spitting all over the place.

I will post a little bit more about the stuff I have done as a mastering engineer later on.

Thanks for listening.

Sorry, haven't been posting much lately, but I've been listening. There's some great stuff here at the moment.

Listening to Editor's stuff right now. Great stuff.

For anyone who hasn't heard my material before, there's 4 tracks here

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Nice track. Comments on the mix..... Everything seems to sound very distant to me. The snare makes the drums sound as though they are way off in another room. Close your eyes and visualise the sound stage. It sounds to me like everyone is very spread out on a huge stage. Generally for a "studio" recording I like to hear all the instruments really tight in together. But hey, that's just a matter of opinion.
The other thing is that I can really hear the pump of the comp/limiter. For me, when you can hear the limiter working, it's working way too hard. Especially when you run a hard limiter on the master channel. One loud instrument squashes the crap out of everything.
My method (but YMMV) is to have separate sub-master buses for drums, bass, guitars, keys, other instruments, and vocals. Then put a limiter on each submaster as required. Then you should just need light compression on the main master to keep it all under control. Then if you really need to squash the drums, it is not affecting everything else like your guitars really seem to be pulsating.
Nice work though for a first effort. Keep it up.

Virgin Mix
Hey fellas I just completed my first decent mix. It's been taking a while but I'm getting there. The thing is that the program manager at one of our local radio stations actually wants to put the song into rotation! You can imagine I'm nervous as hell about the mix so any feedback or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
