Okay, discussion...I'll bite.

What purpose is the floor shell track serving?  I've just muted the thing because it doesn't seem do me any good at all for the overall drum sound.  I can see where you might want the kick shell...I'm not using it, but I can see the point.  

Am I missing something?

Scott


You get some great ride out of the floor shell and the kick shell is the only way to get some point out of the bass drum (if you need that in your mix).

I think I'm done...  wasn't too bad, 4-5 hours total I think...  it rocks, it's blatantly commerical, and it's gonna make the teenage girls go crazy.  Shocked

Cheers, Grant and J... thanks for the tune.

I have a lot more to discuss, but I'll hold off until everyone finishes their mixes...

I decided to do something different and use just the floor tom shell mic as the whole drum kit. Wacky....

Okay, that's it...I'm not messing with it any more.  I've had this essentially done since like late night Monday, but I keep thinking "ooo, I could do THIS...hmm...and THAT..and this OTHER!!!"  All little stuff, but I just never say "DONE".

I do this for money when I have the opportunity, but I don't do it for a living, so I've never gotten into the habit of doing things in a profit-conscious manner.  Bad me.

How do YOU know when you're done?  When is it "good enough"?

Well I don't know if it's "good enough", but I had Monday afternoon available to work on it.  The rest of the week I'm busy.
Schedule kind of dictates how long it's going to take.

I'm out of this one, but I know a mix is done when I start listening to the song all the way through a couple of times in a row and don't have the urge to tweak anything.

dunno if i'll have the time to do this one, but I know a mix is almost done when I notice that i'm no longer listening to the mix and I'm listening to the SONG.

All good answers...from both pragmatic and artistic standpoints.

Thanks.

i agree with all above.  i'm done when i don't want to tweak anymore.  or, when i'm simply hitting a deadline and things HAVE to get put together.

either way, i never send work out that i would not put my name on.

artist recalls are a different story.  sometimes those NEVER end.
