Multitrack archive of post/prog/alternative/metal song

hi folks,

me and my guys from EDEN CIRCUS decided to give away the files of the studio session for our latest single 'her lovely hands upon the black earth'.

the archive (1,6gb) includes all the tracks edited & digitally unprocessed (no eq, comp, fx, etc.). we also added all line signals in case you're the reampin' guy...

if you're in the mood for messing around with a 9min.-almost 100tracks-post/prog-monster, there you go:

wanna hear what we did to it?!:

tell us what u feel, give us a hug - have fun!!!

Just Dloaded the tracks - these sound badass!

I don't know if it's impolite to ask, but would you happen to have a couple of one-shots of the snare drum for me to combat the hihat leakage? I'd much rather use the one in the track than source from my own library (since the snare sound in this one is a killer).

Eden Circus "Her Lovely Hands"

This music is just what I like, thanks for sharing your recorded files, I enjoyed very mutch

Mixed in Pro tools HD and SSL.
So many channels my poor hd4 system had to pull some weight. I had to mix with headphones as my control room isnt finished. Great band and a really awsome song, I love it.
Going to make some fine tuning when my new control room is finished.

Allright! This was quite a tune to do. A well recorded song.

Since I'm such a sucker for 90s music, I kinda pulled this song onto that direction. I did quite a lot of submixing right form the get go: summed all kicks, snares, OHs, bass mics onto one track respectively (meaning one kick track, one SD etc.) and while at it, added some processing on them; mostly UAD 1073 and Studer 800 to give the sounds some character. The drums and basses have little to no processing at the mix. As you can see I asked the OP if I could get a clean hit from the snare played but he hasn't been online since he posted this so I finished the mix without and used a sample I recorded myself.

The way guitars were laid out was pretty stupid if I'm completely honest. I saw no logic whatsoever there and after I had coalesced them into a smarter pack, I had like 6-8 guitar tracks (3 clean guitar tracks, 3 distorted guitar tracks and a lead guitar track). Some of the tracks had even dupes (=same performance on multiple audio clips).

The vocal layout was a bit less offensive but even there after some careful handoffs I ended up with 4-6 vocal tracks.

I kinda attempted at enhancing the respective moods of the different sections and instruments: Making the heavier sections a aggressive as possible while adding some ludicrously long reverb on the "atmosphere guitars".

Sounds great guys! Cool video too. Thanks for uploading.

EDIT: This song was very well recorded. What studio did you use? I see the mics used on the tracks I currious about the preamps. Sounds like the majority of the tracks were recorded through a Neve console or a bunch of Neve 1073 style outboard.

Will you share that info about preamps used?


Again great recording and cool song.

Cool My new mix.

I made a new mix, A lot of multiband compression.
Mixed with headphones though.

I choosed to only use the recorded files, no samples or drum replacement.
Great sounding drums/ambience in the recorded drum tracks
