Need a second pair of ears here:
This is a small clip of a track i'm working on.Any comments regarding mixing are welcome.
MY personal opinion (how ever critical) is that the guitar can feel a bit thin on attack. There's a certain warmth (I think) missing from it. I've tried a lot to get what I'm looking for. I tried a TON of Red Impulse MesaRectifier IR's and they seemed to all have a certain buzz way up on the high end that I couldn't get rid of. So I went back to using Fractal's. This is as far as I got.
Questions I have are:
Is there anything I can do to fill the spectrum any further?
Is there any clipping?
Is there too much high end on the guitar? (I feel like there is but when i try to drop even a little bit I seem to lose too much)
Is the overall track on par with professional mixers? If not, what can I do with what I have to get there OR what are the must haves (gear, plugins, recording techniques, etc) for mixing this genre on that level?
Thank you for your time.
PS: I made some mistakes at some parts. Ignore them for now.
