    Hey guys :)

    Well as I'm slowly learning how to get a better sound out of the recording combo I recently purchased, I was in the mood to write something aggressive and see how tight and punchy I could get it. :hbang:

    The song is called Hell-O and is currently lacking vocals & bass (but will have them by mid week!). Il update with a version with those added in the week. The guys from the band love the song but they are biased :D

    The setup is my PodXT Live, FL Studio 6, EZdrummer standard and some freeware plugins :)

    I've zipped it onto my webspace:

    All comments, both positive and negative are VERY gratefully received!

    As always.. thanks for listening :D:bowdown:

    Edit:: Just noticed a couple of tiny guitar mistakes but please ignore those! Doh!

    Glad you guys like it, what do you think of the overall produced sound..? :)

    It's the Bogner tone from the MetalShop with some tweaking and a bit of EQ done in Line6 Gearbox. I've attached the .l6t tone for you if you want to tweak it :)

    The guitar used to record this is my cheapo Schecter Omen-7 :scream: .. tracked twice per side (total 4 parts) :)

    Good job dude!

    Maybe it was the speakers I was using, but the only thing I wasn't digging was the snare sound. I've noticed it on most EZdrummer stuff I've heard, as well as a lot of Drumkit From hell recordings...

    In any case, killer tune :hbang:

    Thats my fault, I slightly over compressed it as it wasn't cutting through the mix well despite some serious EQ. Im gonna do another remix as a friend of mine has commented on the snare :)
