Hello dear people of The Forum, i'm new on this forum, after endless searches for improving my mixing, i decided to turn to the best resource possible.
Other people! :p:
so the thing is , i know how to use DAW's and how to record and i do use drums
but whenever i record and mix something , i keep feeling that it could be better, always there's something that sounds bit off and i can't really put my finger on it, that's why i decided to get help online, and finally hear other people's opinion on my mixing (where did i do good, where did i do "less" good etc!)
I mainly record Guitar, specifically metal Genre (symphonic is where i fail to have a decent mix)
getting tips and advises from you guys(and gals) can be really helpful for me!!
now for the technical details!
gear i am using :
Kemper Profiler connected directly to Steinberg Ur22MkII audio interface,
Cubase pro 10.5 (with Various Plugins)
and for drums i also use various products, but now i use TT's Superior Drummer 3
Prs se torrero/Jackson Pro KVT
in this sample the result is not bad, sounds decent and i actually like it ;
however it's very minimal in terms of Audio production, it's just the drums (single track no double tracking the drums)
and guitar. no bass no Keys , nothing.
(short song i created for this specific purpose)
s*** gets real when i add bass and other instruments ; i tried using Eurobass plugin with Bias fx 2 but i just made things worse as it for some reason ruined the entire mix, so i just recorded bassline and pitch-shifted it (using kemper's built-in PS)
for this track i used Various kontakt libraries for strings .
guitars were double tracked , and bass was , as i mentioned before, recorded separately(not Double Tracked however) .
the result wasn't bad but i feel it isn't great either.
something sounds off and this is where i kinda need your advise
i use a various plugins and effects for output
Sorry for the long post, i hope some of you read it , thanks in advance and stay safe!!
