    hi guys and gals ,
    I recorded my friends 3 piece band and had a go at mixing a few songs .
    Thought Id post one here to get some feedback ,
    I think Ive I need to hi pass higher up on the delay, reverb next time .after a re listen it sounds a a bit too dark to me.
    I used 2 nt5 ohs , plate kik drum mic , and DI bass and DI acoustic guitar as well as s vocal mics.

    Sounds overcompress to me. Was it recorded on a live show or live in the studio ?

    It sounds rather like you put one mic in a room, and recorded it. everything seems quite distant and a bit muffled. It doesn't sound close miked at all.

    Yes it does sound like 1 mic , just had a listen to it.
    There was D I on the acoustic guitar and a chorus pedal before the DI .
    I think the chorused guitar influenced me to end up with that distant sound. I couldn't hear it sounding
    good and close , I would've liked the ac guitar dry , but oh well .
    after that I felt my hands were tied and placed the vocals from there .

    What would you have done ? . I think I'm not a fan of chorus and close in one.
