This is my friend Ryan's solo project thing. As you may guess, guitars and bass are direct. Redlined them through my oldie Tascam M-208 mixer and then sent that into the API clone and then proceeded to redline that as well and then it's hitting my DBX 160x hitting a couple of db GR at their loudest. Sounds like a pretty charming sort of shitty, IMO.

Also ain't never recorded this dry of drums before but figured muting the hell out of everything would be cool, wanted to go for a Television sort of production.

Starting to feel like I'm figuring this shit out forreal.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r7snmp9dmmrl2 ... 2.wav?dl=0

Still a fairly "rough" mix, but it's coming together. Lots of volume and possibly drum compression ratio automation to go, and some EQ tweaks on the snare. Really kind of do not like the way the dirty guitar sounds at the beginning at all, but am very into the tone at the end? Likely just the guitars being much more sync'd up, as the tone is the exact same.

No sample on the snare, but I feel like it has that kind of sound going on where you'd bet that there's some amount of that blended in there in bits. Drums are in our now sort of treated basement, not ideal really but kinda getting away with it. Also, learning to get fucking psycho/drastic with the surgical subtractive EQ has made a big difference; removing weird hiss, room resonance, shitty boxy midrange stuff. There's a rampant amount of 400hz in this room, it's almost always in every mic just flubbin' away. I will virtually eliminate that frequency band completely in certain mics (particularly the room mics). I was very wary to ever do stuff like that until just recently and it's getting me far better (and weirdly natural) results than I could have ever anticipated.

Both of these are great.

I hear you on the early guitar on the first one. What was the guitar? Sounds like something like a mustang with the pickups set out-of-phase? I feel like you get away with that sound a lot more on the stabbier type of rhythms at the end in general. For those sorts of parts it kind of makes them cut through nicely, i feel. The more single-notey stuff like the beginning of the tune, kind of tends to sound more hollow or something.

Also, what is going on with that awesome bent note in the second part? That is fantastic. :love:

The second song there is definitely a case of: you have figured out how to do these heavy mixes now. :huzzah: LOVE the guitars, sounds like nasty early black flag in the execution, one of my favorite guitar sound flavors. Overall, the mix itself sounds like later Poison Idea(minus the singer) which again is another all time favorite for me, of ways for a mid-fast punkish band to sound. Great!

Guitar for mathrock track was Thinline, in the middle position with the stock WRs, which are not actually fuckin WRs in those MIM models. :0 It’s a humbucker they put in that big casing, I know because I still have one in the neck position of my Thinline. Those things sound funky as shit and I’m kinda opposed to using middle position on most guitars anyhow. Works great on some, my Mexican Custom Shop Roadworn is one of the best clean tone guitars I’ve heard in the middle, no weird phase-y sounds at all, just almost like a perfect cross over between the two. Super full range of meaty bottom and chime.

Bent note bit is all tapped and I believe the bend was done with his right hand! Todd is really good at geetar and we went pretty crazy over getting that particular part where it needed to be.

Thank you, dawgie. :huzzah: I think for me figuring out a lot of this stuff I just had to force myself to do stuff I didn’t think would work for me. And in a really counterintuitive way of me kinda being like “oh that’s the EASY way that do that stuff”, like the overly slick and plastic production shit. But it’s really not case, I guess? Kinda shot myself in the foot for a long time not being will to do anything I thought seemed too extreme or unnatural.

Glad you dig the second track as well, those two along with a shitload of other tracks I’m tracking are going to go on a bigass benefit comp I’m putting together. Lots of different flavors of punk and rock music.

Been meaning to post this for a bit, as it will be my "major indie label" debut:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Scf8OJ ... sp=sharing

The actual mixing on this will be handled by an up and coming Big Boy sort, a guy named Arthur Rizk who's done the newest Cavalera Conspiracy record and the Power Trip records and a bunch of other shit. This here mix is basically just faders to taste and some compression on the kick and snare (and of course some vocal reverb). Oh, also a little mix bus compression. Stoked to see how this thing is gonna actually turn out. Got to record it in a big fucking warehouse space one of the dudes in the band works at.

Nice dude, it will definitely be interesting to see where he winds up with it.

Really dig that bass sound, nice level of scuzz to it, but not too much.

Bass is also I think my favorite bit of that. Ric -> Rat -> Mark Bass -> Ampeg 8x10. Very frickin' guitarish bass tone, which I grow more and more fond of.
