    I love the garageband vibe. However, in order to make it fly, you've got to make these less bright and get some low end into them. You should pay real money to them professionally mastered. The mixes are decent and the playing isn't too bad.

    In the meantime, I feel like your monitoring environment could use a lot of improvement. Yeah, I like the band, the songs, the feel and the mix. Ship it off to have it finished.

    i agree with everything saabfender said in support...nice! i also agree with him that the bass/low end could be treated differently: more of it! where i differ a little: i think a remix (pump up --- gain and/or EQ --- the bass!) would/could help.

    but very nice! i really enjoyed listening to your tunes! keep up the good work and good luck to you on your journey! :thumbsup:

    the guitars are maybe a little bit too produced compared to the bass, drums and vocals. They sound good, but in a punk music context they may be outshining the other instruments. the kick would benefit from being "married" to the bass guitar. I like the song, I like punk rock. \m/

    sounds like it had similar treatment.

    sounds better in the beginning with the kick and the bass, but the kick gets lost in the full mix. I think the kick is too low in the mix in general maybe.

    Good punk rock man!

  5. The bass guitar or the bass frequencies of the guitar track?

    More kick, less hi hat.

    both could use a second look, IMO:
    the bass guitar could pump more. also, the guitar/kick/bass guitar could be 'treated' for an increase in the low end, overall, but be careful of mud...and then the other tracks would be affected by attention to the low end. but i don't want to give you the impression that those opinions are 'deal breakers' because they're not. you cats did a great job putting those mixes together (i forgot to mention the panning tricks/candy = nice!). my initial impulse: boost the bass and take another look at the low end. it was just a 1st impression. ;)
