Fuzzcats mix/song critique before release

New one upbeat hard rock. I used Apollo Twin X for all tracks (except drums) and mostly UAD plugins with SM57 and a AT4047s. Mixed in logic X. Anything glaring anyone notices please feel free to point it out a little close to this mix now

I wasn't able to open the 96/24 dropbox link but the attached version sounds great!

Really like how 'massive' everything sounds -- a great use of reverb from what I can hear. Everything seems to sit really well together! Nice one.

Would love to hear anything more on your mixing process, tips that would help others on how you achieve your awesome sound would be super cool to have here.

👍🏼

Absolutely!  the UAD apollo interface and plugins have really improved my itb mixes.   The guitars are all sm57 with a les paul pointed a little of axis about 2 inches off grill.  I used friedman for some rhythm and a marshall was used on the outro solo.  Two of the guitars are direct with a helix the really fuzzy ones panned hard left and right.  I usually don't like helix for recording instead of a real amp, but it just worked on this song.   Vocals are double tracked and I used decapitator for the distortion.  Bass I recorded direct and used a fender pbass and the UAD Ampeg B-15N plugin with a Unison preamp plugin before it.  

If anyone has specific questions I'd be happy to answer.

We only provide mp3 upload but you can upload to 320 so that's pretty good. Plus its good coding practice too ;) . If the mp3 sounds good, you are doing it right!

Awesome post. Thanks for sharing.

Yeah I realize that I was just linking to the file not trying to upload it but it wouldn’t let me save the edit so I just created a new post

Hi!

Lovely music.

I am a sucker for guitars, so this is a hit!!!  Love the solo towards the end, very gifted guitarist and artist!!!.

Your vocals are so good on this song, and probably any song you sing.

I can really appreciate the bass guitar as well.

Very well recorded.

Very nice written lyrics, and message.

Very professional sounding recording.  Love this.

Rene

Thank you so much for the kind words.  I wish my vocals sounded good on any song.

Ok I added some vocals over the outro.  Thinking maybe I should rename song to give it a rest?

Sounds good to me! Are you double tracking the vocals? They sit really well throughout. Heh, I like the name "Fuzzcats" -- kind of quirky imho. Really catchy tune -- nice one!

Yes all vocals are double tracked.  Do the vocals sound like they could come up a bit to anybody?
