I think this sounds a lot better then the old mix. I would say try and bring the snare out more, but since you’re working from an MP3 you might not be able to do that without adding too much HI hat. You might be able to ad a snare on top of the drum track to fill it out a little bit, if it’s not too complicated.
I really like the sound you’re getting from the guitars. It has a nice bite to it, without being too bright.
I was able (hopefully) to isolate and dbl the snare some. Brought down the chorus and bridge gtrs and bass slightly
(“2nd mix” as edited into the OP)
As far as the verse and bridge its 4 guitars. If I remember correctly I used either a Joyo “British” (Marshall Sim) or a Joyo ‘American’ (Fender sim) pedal. So its left and right of mic’ed up distorted guitar…line 6 I assume lol and then its left and right of the Joyo direct, set pretty clean
here is sample of the verse of what I assume is the Joyo Pedal…without the chorus and delay I added in the mix. I ought to use this to double stuff a whole lot more as it adds a really nice sort of Jimmy Page vibe under distorted guitars
Definitely like what you’re doing here JJ! I actually prefer the second version to the third-- second was a big improvement on the first. I find v2 more compelling sonically for totally subjective reasons that I probably cannot articulate. I just like it better.
Have you tried using multiband compression to help you adjust the drum sounds? That can be of some use, in some cases, when you’re working with a full-kit drum track. They are fiddly but it might be of use.
I thought thats what u meant. AFAIK the “2nd mix” at the top is the same as the one further down lol. I just updated the OP with the 2nd mix but also put it further down so that it was chronologically in line
It sounds like you got the snare a bit more forward, but it may have had a bit of an unexpected effect on the rest of the stuff. If you have the snare isolated, you could double it with a software snare, depending on the DAW you’re using. I use logic, and it’s pretty easy to do there, that way, you’d just be adding snare without any bleed from other things.
