    Hey all,

    My friend and I just started a new project and finished our first single. I've included the raws for you guys to play around with, there is a link for them in the youtube description.

    Vocals - Shure SM7b -> ISA One Preamp
    Guitars - Ibanez RGD2127 -> TS9 -> 5150III -> Mesa V30's -> Sm57/Royer R121 (first time using it be gentle you whores) -> ISA One Preamp/M Audio Profire 610
    Bass - Fender Jazz 5 String -> Sansamp RBI/DI/Guitar Chain (3 tracks)

    Tempo is 180bpm

    Enjoy!

    Thank you for sharing! The quality of DIs is great.

    Here's my attempt (no vox though):

    Nice mix overall ! In the 1st mix from the video it definately lack bass low end, in MrSleepwalkers version the bass lowend overshadows the drums. Something in the middle would be best I guess :) Keep up the good work, sounds awesome just needs tweaking.

    My try, took my quite a while to get a mix I liked.

    [SC]https://soundcloud.com/masoo242/arcadia-nightfall-mix-and-master[/SC]

    I was going to use TSE X50 for guitars but in the end POD Farm with an external IR sounded better (Or I just know the ins/outs of POD Farm more than TSE X50)

    Ahh this track is so good so much fun mixing.

    Noticed my effects buss is noisy as ..... I think I added some crazy sat there

    found myself doing some crazy/stupid processing on the drums since i didnt feel they were sitting right.

    surprisingly... what gave me the sustain I wanted on my snare came from sending a room simulation from EzDrummer to my drum Reverb send (mannymarroquin reverb)

    I Originally automated it out when vocals would play... but later decided to leave it.

    The frequencies sounded good to me although, my monitoring is pretty bad at the moment haha

    this was fun. I'm used to working on instrumental stuff myself so it was good practice with what I wanted to hack at some time. There was a problem with the bass though, a little hard to work with the tones provided (I went with using the original tracks provided rather than reamping). For a while I didn't realize that the guitar tracks are two separate mics because i'm a dingus and didn't read the description lmao. went back and did a bit of a remix here and there after I learned that.

    drums are Abbey Road Modern Drummer here.

    Did a quickie attempt here

    gonna upload a final one in week maybe, right now I'm not at home and I'm more used to mix guitars and voice through speakers and not headphones (hopefully the tone didn't end up sounding weird :D )

    Bass has been a b1tch to work around, but the track is great! thanks a lot for the stems :)

    Mixed this for like 3 hours straight, hopefully I didn't ear fatigue it to hell. I'll pick it back up maybe in the next few days when my ears and fresh and unbiased as balls and i've read about mixing vox.

    [SC]https://soundcloud.com/mark-erece/nightfall-by-arcadia[/SC]

    Guitar: Tse808 v2.0 --> tse x40 --> God's cab SM57 cone near pres 2 i think?

    Bass: CLA bass mixed in with the provided sansamp tone

    Drums superior kit black beauty snare dw collector's (i think that's what it's called? too lazy to open up sesh again) kick from metal foundry.

    Vox: Bunch of stupid and most likely unnecessary crap because idk how to mix vox


    EDIT: God, I already hear my guitar is a liiiitttle too present for my liking already. That's annoying.

    Here's my take, I'm a noob so any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks for putting these up, I feel like working on things I dont write helps me learn and grow as a "bedroom producer".

    I took a shot at it. This is my first time mixing someone else's material, so I hope I didn't butcher it too bad. I had to cut the the intro and vocals because my free version of Ableton Live 9 limits you to eight tracks. It is a rad song. Any feedback would be very much appreciated.

    aaaand finished. So far I think is one of my favorite mixes that I've done :D

    [SC]https://soundcloud.com/emiliosfeir/nightfall-by-arcadia-remix-mastering[/SC]


    edit: for those interested;

    -. TSE 808, TSE X50, ENGL 4x12 cab sim. LePou Lextac for the final lead
    -. B.O.D. for bass and a ....load of processing (along dividing it into 3 tracks with specifics freq for each track)
    -. Superior (Avatar kit)
    -. POD Farm for delays and FX
    -. Lexicon plugins for everything reverb related
    -. Fabfilter Pro-C for most of the compression
    -. Ozone 5 for mastering
    -. MaxxLouder for limiting the master (dynami-what?)
