Nice catch Toby. I hadn't realized I was in 48k. I re imported/exported my mix and fixed something else I missed.April 3, 2016 at 4:49 pm #7021Andrew MckenzieParticipant
Thanks for the feedback Toby, much appreciated!

There is a misconception regarding the use of drum samples for enhancement/replacement.
I found this on the discussion board over at Indaba:
Hi guys, Ben from pureMix here. In terms of sample replacing, if you think it helps you get a better mix go for it. The rules were meant to not treat this like a remix but just a mix (which we know sometimes requires sample replacement on the drums). Hope that helps clarify!

Oh wow, and here I spent a ton of time on the drums and got them pretty close to where I want...except for the dang overheads and those phasey cymbal crashes....
I wonder how the heck to incorporate those, or do I scrap the drums altogether? hmmm... decisions, decisions..April 5, 2016 at 11:27 am #7075TobiKeymaster
Spent a load of time today on rerouting groups and FXs, so much so that I think I managed to successfully mix myself right up my own mix bus!
...start again tomorrow with a clear head. 🙂April 5, 2016 at 12:55 pm #7081TobiKeymaster
Syklopz, I think you're still in 48k. Have a listen to the other mixers.April 5, 2016 at 12:58 pm #7082TobiKeymaster
Thanks for the info. I'll probably stick with just the drums... maybe...April 5, 2016 at 1:02 pm #7083chris massaParticipant
Well good I don't feel bad about using the signal gen trick to beef up the kick. Still working on it. Spent the weekend with Toby Wright at Blackbird.April 5, 2016 at 1:24 pm #7084TGMIXParticipant
Tweaked a few things for this mix based on comments here. Let me know what you guys think.April 5, 2016 at 1:45 pm #7085TobiKeymaster
Really nice detail coming through. You've brought out the dynamics of the song. I love how many of the instruments you've managed to sit nicely together - well worked EQ. The bottom end is even coming through nicely on my TV.
...still think the guitars are a little low. ...then again on my mix, that's all you can hear - but my guitars sound huuuuge! 🙂
Top notch mix!April 5, 2016 at 2:37 pm #7088TGMIXParticipant
Thanks for the feedback Toby. Glad the details are coming across now as that's what I have been really focusing on. You're right about the guitars. Honestly I've ben having trouble getting them to sit in the mix just right. I want them to be huge as well but every time I bring them up a but they just take over the whole track! Will try and tweak further. Thanks again!April 5, 2016 at 2:54 pm #7089TGMIXParticipant
