You’re right. There’s work left on tweaking the low end. First thing I would do is to reduce the low-end of acoustic guitars (low-shelf or HPF). It would create more room for bass and kick (which in my opinion is even more in need of tweaking … it’s weak).

And as a big fan of strummed acoustic guitars myself, I hardly ever say this: back off those acoustic guitars a bit.

BTW. I liked the song, the arrangement and the performance. Nice job!

Thanks Jarno

I to love strummed acoustics…i’ll pull the high pass over more.
I have the bass guitar in mono with compression first decent thresh andthe ratio is something like 4 or 5 to 1 cant rember? then eq’d the output is stereo out with a pre fader send to a stereo group with another comp similar ratio but not massive thresh and a bass enhancer plugin on it the mono is quite light but group is the deeper tone…would you raise the group and leave the mono?

Im gona have a mess with the drum groups too.

Before I do anything I will back the guitars off and see where I stand…


think im in need of some room treatment for these lows I have none at all…

Struggling…its always too much or to little!
