    I forget the name of the drum mic kit. It was a cheaper brand. Snare mic, kick drum (did use a 52a), a couple pencil condenser overheads (stereo). Didn’t mic the toms. We also recorded bass, guitar and vocals at the same time. Cabs and singer in 3 different rooms. So us as a band were using 7 inputs. I added the second guitar track later.

    We’ve thought about using this as a scratch track and re-record all parts over it, but in the meantime I’m just seeing how good of a mix I can get from it. I like the live feel it has.

    Just listened to the last mix, wow, lots of progress from the original! Really sounding good!

    De-ssed vocals a little, high passed the guitars a little more, and pulled the overheads back a tad.

    Sounds much better and clearer - however ...

    ...my ears may be deceiving me but the guitars seem to have too much fat trimmed now.

    I'm not hearing the CHUNK... at least during the intro.

    Generally speaking... part of keeping the instruments clear in the mix is to be careful with sharing frequencies between said instruments.

    But you can have the guitars (for ex) go lower into the bass register (frequencies) as long as you carve out a little notch in the bass guitar
    frequencies... so they don't compete down there.

    Alternatively, for the "just guitars" intro, you could go full phat... then when the drums/bass kick in, keep the EQ as you currently have it.

    And of course it's all subjective to what you want the mix to sound like.
