    My band Transcendency | Facebook is ready to record, and we can either do it ourselves our go to Bullet Ride Productions | Facebook.

    These are the recordings so far for our instrumentals, although we will do vocals with someone else if we do it ourselves.

    How our mix sounds (except song 2, that is way old) (free)

    How going to Bulletride would sound (our vocalists old band) (100 dollars a song)

    And any help on making our mix any better? And yes the guitars are panned one left and one right

    Great song! :) The drums take the main part in the song and in my opinion, "Djent" or whatever needs the guitar to be the main leading part in the mix. I'd make the snare more "alive", kick and cybmals sound good though. Boost that guitar so it will fit better in the mix. And am I hearing a dry signal guitar at 3:40? or clean guitar I don't know lol.

    Song three is pretty awesome, criticism. The delay in the intro doesn't sync up. The drums and the bass sound sick. The guitar needs a better tone and needs to stand out in the mix more prominently
