Unfortunately, the mix doesn't work for me. The drums sound like the only thing audible is the overheads and even they're turned down so low that the drums are barely audible. Plus, they sound like they were hi passed and heavily compressed. They just don't fit with the rest of the song, especially with the vocals that are so dry.
Thank you for the constructive criticism of the mix. The drums were a summed stereo mix of the Superior Drummer 3 Midi track. I went back on Sunday night and soloed each SD3 track and recorded their audio to separate tracks, and then added some EQ on the kick on both the low-end and around the 3K range. (I'm not at the DAW, so I don't have the exact numbers.) I turned down the overhead tracks a bit in the mix. I also added a bit more reverb to the vocal. This version certainly sounded better on both my big monitor speakers -- and on my car's stereo. Let me know what you think:
