    I like to think this is my best mix to date so far. It's a song from a local band I recorded (I recorded this exact song about 1 month or so ago) but it didn't sound as good as this one does.

    comparisons:

    CLIP FROM BEFORE:
    Offshore - Demo1 (ver2) by Illusionists on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    LATEST CLIP
    Offshore - First Contact (axefx2) by Larcher on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    This kid has pretty sick chops. He is also only 17.
    Anyhow, let me know what could be changed in the mix to better it.

    Also; the patch I used is 100% from the axefx2. No post-eqing

    nice. not too much bass though IMO that may be my speakers tho, and the last solo the fast alternate picking part sounds too big IMO the delay or what not. awesome mix tho:yesway:

    yeah, I found the last solo a bit loud and overwhelming aswell but, I thought maybe my ears were getting tired and wanted a second opinions :lol:

    I hear a good amount of bass in my headphones however

    relistened with my phones, bass isnt too bad a little low all around maybe drums low?, the leads sound even louder in my phones even on the first solo sounds like the rhythm and lead are fighting to stay in the middle :lol: very good mix though.:yesway:

    EDIT: the drums just seem very low compared to the bass guitar an everything the cymbals sound good besides the hats seem low to me.
    the leads definitely seem overwhelming at higher listening volume lower isnt so bad. fatiguing higher tho.

    It sounds pretty good overall. The guitars sound nice and there seems to be an adequate amount of low end. The drums are a little strange in parts. During the blast beat sections, the drums dominate the mix. The mix could also use some more hi-hat. But overall, the mix sounds pretty good.

    dude what do you use for drums? it sounds killer. also your guitar tone is very real sounding and your playing is phenomenal.
