Hi everyone! Righty, 1st things 1st. My gear, Motu pre-8 (x2, I optically link 2 giving me 16 chanells) Yamaha hs50 monitors with sub. Cubase SX ART V3 Pre amp Assortment of Sontronic condensers and Shure mics for vocals, guitars drums etc. Condensers are used on vocals and overheads, dynamics on guitars/drum heads etc. Kind of music is hard rock/metal. Intricate guitars and drums blah blah. Very high gain I suppose is the point im making. Ok so, lets say I have a drum mix im really happy with, sounds great! Same with guitars, which are then double tracked with multiple mic positionings. Panned accordingly to make a lovely chunky wall of sounds which sounds great. Then Bass goes in with Mic'd up cab and DI. All is well individually. Individually everything sounds almost exactly as I want it. However when I put it together it sounds good, but the mix is really spaced. Like there is a huge gap from the centre of the mix to the Left & right of it. Im being Picky as I think the recordings sound good. But was hoping someone could give a few suggestions as to how to fill it out without being messy and layering too much. Any help gratefully recieved.
