    Hey guys,

    Here is some 'modern metal' track for which I used my AxeFxII and Jackson HT7. Guitars and the bass channel of my bass preset are boosted by the horizon devices precision drive. Drums are Superior Drummer 3. Let me hear what you think! Hope you enjoy, cheers!

    Nice playing, and I really like the guitar tone. The bass is WAY too loud though. What did you use (headphones, monitors, etc.) to mix this on?

    Hey, sorry for the late reply, I was on vacation :)
    Thanks for the kind words, I don't think it is too loud, just my preference of hearing the bass. I mixed it with my Neumann KH 120A in combination with the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro.

    I agree with the bass being too loud or the guitar being a ouch wooly in the mix and getting washed out. I wouldn't mind the bass staying that level but bump up the guitar a few notches or fill in some of its sonic space, it is very tiny sounding.
