We just got done tracking and putting a little pre-pro mixing on this track. You might remember a piece of the song from the video I did when I got that Orange 4x12 cab.
There's still a lot more to go with adding effects to certain tracks, and the guitars are very scratchy, but you guys'll get the idea.
Ok ok.. so I decided to totally scrap the original guitars. Re-eq'd the bass to add some clank and edge, and compressed it a little. Used some C4 action on the guitars to tame that hump w/o eq'ing it out. Pretty basic mix otherwise. Whatcha think?
ANOTHER FUCKING FOLLOW-UP
-.5 db cut on guitar left @ 750 hz
-.7 db cut on guitar right @ 1390 hz
released bass EQ @ 119hz by 5db for moar resonance
re-compressed new bass tone to make up for EQ shift
remixed guitar group to -1.5 db in the mix to add percussive cohesion
Lowered backing guitars in outro
Lowered the guitar group a pinch and reworked the bass for better clarity and more growl. I found it gives the guitars and drums better percussive cohesion. You can actually hear some of the bass runs in the ending. I call it the unnewsteadded mix.
OKAY. CHECK THIS SHIT OUT.
Reedited the guitars with a differing EQ (just a pinch) for more widening effect. Then I ran the finished track through some mastering plugins.
I used some multiband compression, stereo imaging to widen it out even more, and a coule db of maximizing. I think I went a littttttle heavy on the compression - but i'm still learning the ins and outs of the art.
I dig it It grooves.
