I'm back from tour, so now I can get back into more mixing! Here's a little mixtest featuring riffs from Textures' excellent tune "Arms of the Sea".
In particular I'm really happy with the bass tone, for which I used a Darkglass B7K bass overdrive pedal (I also used on the road for my live bass tone) - the thing absolutely slays any other bass OD I've come across. Also helping with the bass tone is a Chandler Germanium preamp/DI with its magical "Thick" switch engaged
Guitars are recorded with my custom Dæmoness 7-string with a Bare Knuckle Emerald in the bridge spot, into an Axe-FX II (Das Metal model). Since I love mg.org I thought I'd share the patch; there is some post-EQ to fit it into my mix but it's fairly satisfying to jam on regardless. Note that the BKP Emerald is a medium/low output pickup so you may find you need to roll back the gain if you're using hotter pickups.
So, what else... oh, yeah, the drums are Toontrack Metal Machine + Slate 4 and some additional samples, and I used Ozone 5 for the mix bus processing.
For those that want to hear the bass tone more clearly, here's a drum and bass only bounce:
Already listened when you uploaded to SC; sounds good through my phone!
Will listen and jam with the patch later at home. Thanks for the generosity in sharing!
EDIT: totally forgot I have my Skullcandys with me.
Dude the bass is fucking brutal.
