Thanks @holster. I use Logic Pro X. For interface/pres I used an RME Babyface and a Behringer ADA8200. I recorded the drums using a pair of ISK Pearls in an x/y pattern for overheads and close mic’d the toms and kick with the cheapo CAD mic pack. For the snare I used an SM57. My drummer is a lefty and plays open so his ride and hi-hat are on the same side. The ride is practically above the hi-hat so I put anotherSM57 under both because the overheads don’t capture them enough. The bass is direct and with a stock amp sim in logic. I doubled the guitars using one of my amps into a Two-Notes Captor and used the Two-Notes Wall Of Sound plug-in for my IRs. For the vocals I sang into an SM7b and I doubled them. In the mix I kept the double 10db lower than the main vocal.
For the mix, not sure what to say. I use a lot of mix bus processing. Mainly because I’m the one who will be “mastering” it and I want it to sound the way it’s going to end up only quieter (I shoot for -16-18db RMS when mixing). For the “mastering” (on our stuff) I just clip it a couple db with k-clip and then use Ozone 8’s maximizer to get the desired volume. When mixing I bus like elements and treat them as a whole. If there’s questions about an individual element or what plugin, amp… I use, I’ll gladly answer. Thanks
