Post Hardcore/Emo Rock - Worthless by Maine River

This band are from Kent in the UK. This is the start of the 3rd EP I've produced for them.

Tempo: 150BPM

A few things you may want to know
The drums were tracked with a 57 on the snare (top), an AKG C214 and a Rode NT2A as stereo overheads and DDrum Triggers on the toms and kick (this means you HAVE to sample replace them. Sorry if this is something you don't you).

Rhythm guitars were done through an Orange rocker30 with a 2x12 cab and the lead was done through a Blackstar (not sure of the model). We used a combination of Telecasters and Les Pauls for all the parts.

Vocals were tracked through the NT2A with heavy compression on the way in - and they've already been tuned.

Here is the track. The video should be out on Kerrang in the next few weeks. Look out for it!

I just used the feature in Logic that exports all the files as .wavs

They were recorded in mono, however I do believe it bounces them as stereo files.

As for the syncing, they should all be in order :S how have you imported it?

Let me know if anyone else has these problems, and if any logic user knows how to bounce in mono?

Maybe it works!?

I use Pro Tools so I just imported them and set the tempo.
Sounds like Bass and piano in the start but after the bridge its sounds like the vocals it off aswell!, it just feels weird its not a lot its just enough to me go make hmmm.
I´ll make bounce so you can hear it!.
There you go

Ahhh I just thought! What sample rate is your project? That can throw it off. Have it set to 44.1khz

Pro Tools automatically compensate for this!.
But yes its 44.1

Thanks for sharing this great song!

Unfortunately I'm having timing issues, too. Tempo is set to 150bpm and my sampling rate is set to 44.1 in ProTools.

Ahh that's rubbish. I realised I bounced the drums with the samples too. I'll try and re-do everything for you guys and re-upload it. Sorry about that.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with timing problems. I was trying to align it all by sight/ear... It was taking forever.
