Sounds good so far! Definately some Katatonia going there. Good song!
About the snare sound, I don't know if you tried it, but did you check the phase/polarity of the OHs to the rest of drums? Sometimes flipping the OHs gives back the bottom end to the snare! Or if it messes with everything else, just flip the snare. Maybe you know all of this already..?
One other thing is, are the guitars on full all the time? To me it sounds like they're blasting away all the time which in turn robs the choruses of it's full power. Have you tried to bring the guitars down a few (or more) dBs on the verses? Maybe even pan them in a bit, use a different sound or less guitars (if you have more than 2 tracks of rhythms). Now it seems that the choruses don't get bigger, they're just a different part of the song, if you follow?
What about all that extra synth/fx sounds floating in the background? It seems like they're all the the time hanging there. While they do sound great, it does get a little .. er.. busy and hectic. Maybe you were going that way with this? Mute-button can be your friend!
Shit, it seems like I'm only complaining! Sorry about that, but when you hear something good, you want to give it your best!
Inner dynamics of the song is what I'm aiming here!
Now that the drums have been tweaked. They seem to overtake the attack of the guitars a bit. The vocals are absolutely perfect. Not too produced. Just enough to catch Jake's vibe. Are we ever gonna be satisfied, MFK?..............................I would guess not. The perfect guitar tone for this record seems to be our Unicorn.
Good tunage! Nice ambient parts, is that a vocoder doing vocal counterpoints I hear in there too?
I can hear the points that people are making. I'd really have to listen alot more and pick this apart.
My question is simple if you don't mind sharing some info..you're using L6 with Gearbox.
I'm gonna stab at the models used...am I hearing right if I place it as Diety's Son? or Mississippi Crim?, possibly Bogner?
Are you just using Gearbox's models and cabs, mic & effect choices for the guitars or have you put your L6 models thru another chain?
