The Long Wait - Dark Horses (ixnas' Mix)

haven't been here for quite a long time, so I thought I'd upload some new stuff.

A quick mix (~2hrs) I did because I was bored...

The drum recordings are awful, the acoustic guitar being almost as bad. The players themselves are pretty good though.

I had some trouble getting the kickdrum to punch through the mix, so I put some nice distortion on it (my personal trick for spicing anything up). The acoustic guitar had a ridiculous amount of picking noise which I filtered out using high ratio compression and a small bell curve around 5kHz.

I used plate reverb on all the vocal tracks. Room reverb for all the tracks except kick/bass. I used a subtle gated plate reverb on the snare to get at least some brightness from it, and a stereo delay on the solo guitar. Automated the electric guitars towards the end of the song, as well as lowering the solo guitar in volume as the vocals kick back in.

I didn't feel like doing editing or pitch correcting, since this is obviously just practicing stuff.

Done using Pro Tools 11 and just stock plugins, except for HeadCrusher.

Hope you enjoy it!
