    Hey guys

    Long time no talk, my first real mix ever! (emphasis on the real).

    Any advice on the composition or mix would be greatly appreciated

    The song is called 'Phoenix'. It will have clean vox recorded in the next few weeks when I can find a place to do so

    SoundClick artist: Guitarplayerone - page with MP3 music downloads

    Used Schecter Omen 8 with D-activators for rhythm, J Custom with CL/LF and piezos for clean parts/solo

    Really cool song! The heavier guitar tones are a little strange though, theres way too much bass in the tone, you need to try to balance it out a bit. Just compare it to songs you like and you'll probably see what I mean. The kick and cymbals are getting a little lost in parts too. I think the drums' volume could be brought up a bit.

    I like the writing and the playing though, cool stuff! :)

    Thank you guys so much for the kind words!
    I think the problem was monitoring only at one volume.
    Over the weekend I'll try to fix the mix, I'd love to hear more input.

    Any opinions on if the effects were distracting? How about reverb levels? Again thanks so much
