Cheers lad!!!

I'll keep that in mind to keep the low mids strong on the next one (this one has been done and dusted)

Hey Y'all: Longtime reader, first time poster. Here are two tracks I've done in the last year or two. Everything was done in Logic using cheap(ish) interfaces and three mics total. I'm happy to get any comments. Cheers.

Getaway Van - PreSonus Firepod, SM58 on vox and guitar, AKG Perception 120 on drums. Synth keys. Mixed and mastered on Logic. Estuary Music's sounds on SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds
getaway-van

In the Sun: Apogee Duet and cheap $300 MXL microphone.
Sun | John Cathal O'Brien

More recently, I've been working on these. I think they still qualify - used a Mackie 1640i and about $1000 in cheapish microphones (SM58, SM57, Audix drum mic kit, AKG Perception 220, vintage Shure mic - close to a 525 - that I got at a flea market for $5).

Heres an original song I just finished,recorded to tape on my Tascam 388.
Some sloppyness all around,but it was fun to track.

Running A Million Miles/ Jason Harvey/Tascam 388 by jason harvey on SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds
Nice Jason. It's great to hear a good ol tape recording that sounds good.

BTW the way I recorded the acoustic guitars - a Carvin Cobalt 980TW and a Breedlove Atlas - with a combination of low end mics - a modded MXL990, AT2035, and ATM33R, and some peizo mixed in on one or two of them. All through an Art Pro VLA II >> Art Pro MPA II (slight limiting) >> Avid Mbox 3 Pro >> Pro tools 10.

Here's another one I am working on. We recorded the basic tracks for this one on a TDM system at a local studio where some local famous folks record (Rick Derringer, Robin Zander). Then I took it home to my home studio did the vocals, slide guitar and some post editing and mix down. Still needs some little tweaks but it sounds good. These are some of the first things I have mixed on the Adam A7s and I am really liking them and getting to know them.

Nice job! More proof that the SM57 sounds great on snare.

Did this last night. I should have spent more time on the mix but it is what it is! I made the Instrumental and my friend Raw Blake's on the track...I'm into all genres of music and have been doing allot of acoustic recording lately. It was nice to go back to where I started with a hip hop based track.

Enjoy

Thank you! Nothing special with gear. Everything is run through a FMR RNP/RNC.

Vox AT4040
Guitars - First Gen Line 6 pod DI'ed
Bass - DI'ed
Drums - EZ Drummer

all into cubase.

then I just use plugs to try and match the sound of my fav albums. Lots of "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks". LOL

Here's a new tune from "The Confetti Kids." We recorded it a few months ago and it was originally a stripped down piano based "rock" tune. However, we went a little overboard and produced the living hell out of it - and probably went too far

This is about the 5th song I've ever mixed so it's still pretty rough and ametuer-ish, but you can hear what we were shooting for.

Recorded some new songs with my band. Here's one of them. The mix is as final as it gets

Recorded using our budget equipment, a lot of what you're hearing is an old Shure Unidyne 3 mic.

Let me know what you think.

Thumbs up

This is a song, swedish lyrics with a bit of gipsy rythms (well that was the idea). The song should really "pop" in the chorus but it doesnt, and thats a problem i always stumble upon. Any ideas on this and i would appreciate it a lot!

Gear:
Duet 2
Logic
Native Instrument
Slate digital plugins
Tlm 103 (Maybe not low end but can sound like shit sometimes cause o the room i would think)

Wow, a lot of these sound amazing!

Anyway, this song I recorded in my room in a flat using 1 preamp on my m-audio delta 1010lt.

I had about 4hrs to process, fix and mix this track

vox - shure sm57 with diy pop filter made from a sock and a cd spindle.
guitars - sm57 through a noisy old roland solid state amp.
drums - battery

Band wanted the surfy kind of reverb feel. Check it out.

I love this. The distortion on the guitars just seems so refined and controlled. Very nice. Possibly the only problem is that I really had to look to find the bass, though I am not sure where else the bass could go... Now I am just rambling.

Edit: The problem was on my end... for some reason my left output was center it is a lot easier to find now. Listening through again

Would love to hear opinions.
(Can't figure out how to embed videos here...)
Very balanced mix...
I think they should say something about "Have a little fauth in me" by John Hiatt.. the piano sounds pretty similar

Song like this you could bring the vox more forward. Nice tune, again, I love Confetti Kids.

Yes, dial back the intensity on the verses, "big note" on the choruses, or, simplify the chorus melody line without losing it, if you know what I mean.
It’s definitely there to pop though so good on you.

Yes, I have a suggestion, and no offense intended:
learn how to use the forum tags.

Those little things you put around soundcloud posts that make them instantly clickable without even leaving the page or opening another
window.
That way you get this:
https://soundcloud.com/jessesliger/standby
instead of what you had.
See? All you have to do is press play instead of being irritated enough not to listen to any more soundcloud links that don’t use the tags.

For all you guys who aren’t using the links and also aren’t getting any replies, that’s why, because opening another tab, window, link is a PITA when the tags are right up on the right, looking like a little orange cloud.

You select your song in soundcloud,
and it opens a window with just that song on it,
you select the url,
you copy it,
you go back to the gearslutz page for your post,
hit the soundcloud tags button,
paste your url in the middle of the two tags,
and post it and voila.

And it’s a nice tune well done! I wonder how many other songs I’m definitely not going to listen to are this good?

I wouldn’t change your signal path, that 58 sounds great going through that 610. You could try a 1073 or a 1081 with the same mic, might thicken your mids some but possibly too much.
Sounds fine. Fits wel. Nice tune too.
