Here's a quick mix I did today of a gig we had yesterday for some biker accident fundraiser. I tracked all three bands , setup/ran sound, played in two of the bands. I was pitching a boner for actually being able to use a real stage and setup rather than playing some bar with like one speaker running vocals.

I'm really, really pleased with how everything turned out, but I like to get second opinions on mixes.
I did a little of it today on the monitors but got back home at liek 1am and then had to use headphones. will probably go over with monitors tomorrow again.

i don't quite understand what this is... are you mixing this for the venue or as a recording? it's kind of two different ways of mixing - live sound vs a studio recording.

The board is an analog mixer for live sound that outputs all 16 tracks through firewire.
I'm mixing this as a live recording from the raw tracks.

Let me know how it translates to your system(s) and/or what bothers you about the sound.

what i meant was that i didn't understand if you were just documenting the live sound at the club or if you were mixing a recording, but now i get it.

i think everything sounds very clean, which is an excellent sign. the kick drum is just a touch too "big" in the mix and the guitars are too quiet. i would bring up the guitars more, but you've got them panned well. i think you did a really great job recording this.

Sounds great. Good sounding drums and cymbals. The guitars sound good and squashy if that makes sense.

Great job Sloan.
