Hiya Larry. This is pretty darn good. Nits? Cymbals and stuff too loud, I can’t hear the snare, especially early on. Infact, the snare could use more punch, maybe compress a bit more? Geetars are great, nice playing
Thanks. The one thing that I was hoping that I could escape (drums) are the first thing you pointed out.
You may notice some static in the beginning. That’s because I’m using the demo version of VB3 which adds that until you pay the money. (I will eventually, but he wants 49 Euros and that’s a tad too expensive in my opinion.)
Ok instead of using the VSTi directly during the mixdown process, I mixed the individual drum groups to separate tracks for EQ and leveling.
I don’t think the cymbals / hi-hat were too loud. I think that the snare was not loud enough so the relative perception was that the former were too loud. After adding EQ and bumping the snare up by 2 dBs I think you’ll be more satisfied with the overall sound.
I’ve uploaded this to Bandcamp at the same link. Please have another listen and let me know if this addressed the issue successfully.
