hi guys. i hope i have posted in the right section.I am currently producing a band of name musicians on a brand new are all recorded clean with use of a radial d.i box. We have experimented with different sounds and plug-ins to get the right sound but i am feeling that it's not quite right. The desired sound, much like many of us is the contemporary sound you hear on any bullet for my valentine song. What i am finding is in mixes the guitar sound gets slightly too smooth and loses it's original fire.
I have taken a 2 week break from the mixing to see if this situation could be rectified. I am hoping that someone who loves doing this thing, could step forward and offer their expertise.Maybe doing a couple of test re-amps. Obviously as we have no deal until this album completes (i would assume we will get a decent deal, but our game plan is to get finished) so i am looking for ideas, recommendations of people etc. and genuine help
cheers everyone

I suggest posting your files via dropbox here. If anyone wants to give them a whirl, they will, and likely post the resulting tracks.

Being a first time poster, it's a smart idea to not expect people to make that extra step to actually e-mail you to talk. These threads are around for people to communicate in. Nearly everyone here just posts DIs and says "reamp this," etc.
