mplanckei like the "glitching" guitar thing at the top. do you have miss fires on your snare sample? flanger? man those guitars are so wide, that's cool. lowend could be bigger overall. how did you create the vocal harmonies? nice touch. you should have edited the vocal tracks, i can hear lip smacks and awkward breathing in between lines. some weird edits on the drums. intentional i'm sure, just not my bag. i like most all of your vocal treatments. good vibe.
lead gtr is too quiet, but maybe people just didn't like the part
jhall: kick sounds almost too good for the rest of the tracks haha.. did you mix some samples in? once the gtrs get loud it mixes in fine but it sound out of place in the first verse to me at least.. I can't hear the lead guitar anywhere past the first verse, but it seems like an intentional arrangement decision, am I right? Everything else is great.. would you mind explaining some of the mindset behind that cool layered guitar sound? love the vox fx as well.
J.Hall: your "not much compression" critique...can you clarify? Cause, if you mean "master brick wall make it loud" compression it would be because I didn't use any. I generally prefer not to. But I'd like to hear more of what you mean 'cause I may have used more compression in other areas than you think!
yeah, i got rid of that guitar track. too messy, just sucked the mix down, and was really distracting to me.layered guitar sound? didn't i just pan them out and crank em up?vox FX moves between three different things. verb, delay and pitch shifting. it's also typical for me to have a fourth, distortion.if you can get more specific i'm sure my answers will as well.
ah, I thought I heard a delay or something that made the guitars sound 3D... maybe I was just highI am interested in how you EQ'd the guitars.. they retain a glossy edge without being harsh.. they're present but they have a space in the mix, not just slammed in your face.I heard the verb and delay on vox, where did the pitch shifting come in?
