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?

I only had a brief listen through the tracks last night.  The toms sounded like the heads were badly in need of a change.  Perhaps the floor tom shell mic track was intended to provide some of the lacking definition/articulation?

Just a thought.

Yeah, the toms either had bad heads or badly-tuned heads.  I think maybe they were trying to tune too small of a tom too low.  I pitch-shifted them up and they work a lot better, IMO.

Anyway, yeah, I guess that's one possibility.

the toms on this kit are not that great.  weird drums as they sound good live, but don't record well.

i tracked these drums.  the kick shell and floor shell are just labels i use so i'll know what i'm dealing with.

think of them as "room mics" and it might make more sense.

i'll reveal no more.....enjoy mixing it.

Who's responsible for the vocals?

I thought this might be one of Grant's songs.
I like it.
And I already did mix it, thank you very much.

I cannot extract the Rar. file.  Anyone else have this problem?

EDIT:  Ok.  I got it opened but there are only 8 tracks.  Is this really it?

Nope, that's definitely corrupted.  Try clearing the cache on your browser and try again.  You may want to use a *shudder* download manager to help get it all, if you have a flaky connection.

I don't know what it is. I'm one of those guys that gets very intimate with anything that I'm mixing. I always have a new favorite song. It's strange. I may not even like a tune when I pull it up... or track it for that matter. Then, man... I become 'one' with the song. hhhummmmmmmmmmmm.  Very Happy  (can you pass that please and stop Bogart-ing.

Very cool track. (even when I first heard it)  Laughing
