Once again thanks for listening
Placing bass traps will help with low frequency standing waves. Meaning that the low frequency wont get amplified by the waves bouncing over and over off the walls, due to your control room dimensions that doesn't allow the sound wave to dissapate. Think of it as having a very long wave that bounce a wall then crosses it self again, to bounce on an other wall and crosses it self a third time, each time it crosses itself, it's actually amplifying itself, just the same was as if you have one speaker would if you add an other and a third. So placing those traps will help prevent that. Which also means that you wont be fooled anymore (at least less) by the bass presence in your room, which will translate into your mix by you tuning down the bass less. So yes adding them will be very beneficial to you.

Manny I'm on eBay now looking and researching these. I've just remixed the track with more bass and played it in my car. In the control room it was way to bass heavy but in my car it had that energy I've alway been lacking.

Cheers for your help

Great production and the song is great. The mix sounds very professional. Being a guitarist myself love the guitar sound what amp did ya use and how did ya mic it up. Also did you master this yourself or send it some where. I wish my mixes sounded like that. Oh and I love the vocal effect what did you use for that.

Great tune/mix/production

Here is the new and hopefully improved version of Haze. Still find that the mastering im doing is crushing the snare trancients. Any help on this would be much appreciated

[QUOTE=IntelDoc;1867154]Pretty happy to post this link. A band from Moscow found me on Reverbnation a few months back. Not sure of the email legitimacy factor I asked to have them email me directly with the inquiry. Well 2 days later it arrived and I was receiving the files shortly after to mix a 10 song record. Well with a newborn and all it has been tough, not to mention the language barrier, but having a good time.

Great sound. Very subtle build but that guitar figure towards the end sounds explosive but sits in the mix where the vocals still cut. I would have probably had a little fear about turning it up that loud but it works here. It does help that the notes are pretty far above the vocal in pitch. Good parts from the band.

Rock on man!! Definite improvement in the low end makes the track more punchy and adds more growl which is needed in this style.

Do you do any parallel compression on the drum before mastering? If you don't try it and see if it helps at the mastering stage. If it's still doing it, try using a multi-band mastering compressor, if you're not already using one. This will allow you to do some dynamic equalization and should help with your snare.
