    My band released a new demo not long ago. Our vocalist boyfriend, Navene Koperweis did all the mixing/mastering. His samples on the drums, tell me if you dig!

    He drummed for AaL, right?
    They sound really tight, almost unnatural...
    But I still dig it!

    Vocalist boyfriend? Do you mean his girlfriend is the vocalist?
    I'm a fan of loud bass, but the bass is too much for me, and I'm dominantly a bass player.
    either turn the guitars and maybe the vox up, or turn drums and bass down.
    Musically, it's super tight!

    His boyfriend could be the vocalist, it's not our place to have any opinion on that.

    Unless it is a girl. Then our opinion is HOLY SHIT BALLS BRUTAL VOCALS!

    I thought it sounded killer on my speakers.
    However, the kicks sound fake as hell on my headphones (Beyerdynamic DT770PRO).
    I don't mean Rings Of Saturn level fake, but fake.

    However, 99.8% of regular people will never notice!

    When I saw AAL last August, his super hot gf was selling merch. Maybe they're not together anymore and Navene is bi or turned gay. Or maybe that girl is the vocalist!

    After listening to this through my Sennheiser HD380 headphones, the kick sounds very fake. It could use some work.

    So what if the kick sounds fake, it sounds good and it fits the mix very well.

    im actually not a fan of the whole drum mix :2c:
    kicks and toms especially, and the snare is really open sounding

    but hey, if that is what you guys wanted, so be it!

    Awesome track dude!

    I might suggest varying the velocities so that the drums sound a little more natural (esp. the kick), otherwise it sounds great :)

    No how he had it is right well if you add a few grammatical corrections, Op is saying the boy friend of the vocalist is Navene.
    "Our vocalist's boyfriend, Navene Koperweis, did all the mixing/mastering"
    p.s. that is with the corrections

    I thought the mix sounded very tight, and the drums sounded fantastic, definitely passable as 'real' drums. I'm no audiophile, but I thought that was a great demo you have there :)

    It sounds good, but kick is fake-ish.

    Indeed, the kick sounds pretty lifeless, as well as that short cymbal break around 0:17. To the untrained ear, you wouldn't know it was MIDI, though.

    I can actually hear that that's a chick singing. The timbre (size of the throat, etc) gives it away. It still mostly sounds like a demon though, hahaha!

    The drums sound alright, a little dry maybe, and could use some more punchyness. The drums are a bit too loud in the mix too.

    The drums are a bit stiff-sounding too, like a machine is playing it. Which it is, kinda, but still :lol:

    As a whole though, i'd say this sounds pretty damn good!
