Stumbled on this site last night. This sounds fun!
I figured I'd give this a shot. Let me know if my submission needs format changes. (I don't even know what "FLAC bar minimum on low internet bandwidth" means :-)
I look forward to any feedback y'all can give for me to improve. - (Just be gentle, for I am but a snowflake) :smile:

WAV File: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-bWhJ ... E44H7BkLrL
MP3 File: https://drive.google.com/file/d/19QiKGn ... sp=sharing

My editing is as follows using Reaper:
Pretty much used a lot of saturation using Waves NLS channel.

Drums:
Drum Buss: SSL Comp for "glue" (barely a tickle on the meter)
Overheads: ReaEQ to highpass, remove the mid gong and add some sizzle. Waves CLA-76 compressor, and Waves NLS Channel
Kick: Gate, EQ (A TON) CLA-76 compressor, and NLS Channel.
Kick Trigger using a sample to blend in w/original kick - eq'd and compressed to taste.
Snare top: same plugs as kick, but different settings. Sent snare top to Gated plate verb
Snare trigger/sample w/eq and comp to blend.
Snare bottom: EQ, CLA-76 and NLS Channel
Used TOM L and R as Room L and R, and Floor Tom as Room center. Created a bus for them, EQ'd and sent it to a Impulse Response Reverb Hall and crushed it hard w/Waves API-2500 compressor.

BASS:
Waves CLA Bass for some distortion and compression, ReaEQ and NLS Channel
Sent Dry bass signal to Impulse response of an SVT 8x10 cab to blend in

Guitars:
Panned hard w/57 on right and the 2 "extra" tracks left. Nixed the 3000 track.
Created guitar buss and EQ'd, NLS channel, and a tickle of the SSL comp.

VOX:
Some use of the Waves doubler on a few of the backing vox, eq and comp.
Vox Bus has SSL Comp & NLS Buss for saturation and glue, CLA Vocals for widening, and more saturation w/Kramer Tape. Sent a few vox tracks to Impulse Room verb and a bit of slap w/waves H-delay.

A cool little pop-punk number, I especially liked the play off between the various vocals in the chorus and everything's recorded pretty well which made the mixing process fairly straight forward.
I didn't get too outlandish with this mix, I just tried to keep it natural sounding, while at the same time tight and punchy with lots of saturation on specific elements.
I did however adjust some of the kick hits because for me personally, off-time playing is an instant turn off, even within the punk genre so hopefully that doesn't count me out
Mixed completely ITB using FL Studio 20 with mostly stock plugins with the exception of Audiocation Comp (both mono and stereo), Ozone, Oxford Transmod, Scheps Omni, ADT doubler and Kclip limiter.
I opted not to use the tom tracks, but did use the supplied kick and snare trigger tracks blended with the originals, cheers.

Nice! I like the filtered BG vox. Had a hard time with those. I should have done that. Sounds great!

Man this song. They have invested their emotion. Best of all they have allowed the engineer to be free and express what makes him or her an engineer. You have my respect. Best of all I really wanna get to know that Margarita chick. :exhausted:

Thank you! Vocals in this song reminded me of the early albums of Faith No More. So... here the reverse verb! :sing:

Hi, :hyper:
I asked myself why i haven't found this cool site before!

MP3: https://drive.google.com/open?id=139ukV ... mm7izs3PKs
WAV:https://drive.google.com/open?id=19Rd2o ... rXFgYm0m3m

DRUM: A lot of plugins, i replaced the snare trigger included in the folder with one of my sample.
i also used the tom tracks as a room track.

GUITAR: I used all the tracks included, panned L and R, and added some eq and compression.

BASS: I duplicated the track and saturated one of them, put some compressions, eqs and limiting a lot.

VOX: eqs, a lot of compressions, reverb, some delay on the back vocals.

no limiter add on the master buss.

I look forward to hearing your opinions about my mix.

:phones:
