    and i used a bunch of instrument sounds ive never mixed before until now, which turned out to be pretty fun

    https://ohnomyonlyweakness.bandcamp.com/album/forget-ep


    drums are sl drums 3 and rvk 808 by beatmaker
    electric piano is atmos, also by beatmaker
    the choirs, acoustic guitars, all basses, all synth sounds, strings, sitar, panflutes, theremin, and any other odd instrument are xpand 2 by AIR, which came bundled with my M Audio Oxygen 49 midi keyboard and sounds amazing

    any comments/criticisms on the mixes? i know the open hi hat at the beginning of promises is kind of harsh(and despite being labeled as an open hat it sounds more like a china to me) but that is the least harsh i could get it

    I completely forgot to mention what i used guitar wise lol that first song is my jackson js22-7 with blackouts into a pod hd300 using the signal chain screamer(which maybe might not have been on for that song?) -> slo crunch - xxl 412 -> 57(I don’t remember whether it was on or off axis)

    the guitars on promises and forget are the Jackson and the other two are a friends American tele into the same pod tone
