Read On for explanations and settings on each plugins:


Drums: Kontakt 5 with Steven Slate 3.5 drums

Slate

 

Drums EQ: ReaEQ on the full drum kit
Used some High Pass 34-5Hz, too much sub in the kick

Lowered lows around 124hz to remove some overpowering
in the mix from the lows buildup

Drums Compression: Kjaerhus Audio Compressor

It’s an old plugin and its 32 bit, but somehow still love it
and it worked well on the whole kit

Compressor Stock preset: Drums

Bass Guitar:

Kuassa’s Bass Amp
JB Ferox – Tape Emulation – Saturation – added some grit

Intro guitar:
Kjaerhus Audio Compressor – preset: Vocal
worked great to keep the dynamic even

EQ –  ReaEQ
Low Shelf: 85.7
Boosted 3670.8 hz by 5.6dB, in some cases it would be too much,
but in this mix I needed some more presence of the guitar /Ibanez RG with hum buckers – pretty dark guitar, compared to Strats /
Maybe if the guitar was a Strat type, it wouldn’t be necessary .

Kjaerhus Audio Classic Delay emulates 3 of the most commonly used delays / echo sounds types: Tape, Analog, and Digital.
One of my favorites for guitars!

Cat Delay is an “old” or “vintage”  stereo delay plugin from Slim Slow Slider. It’s only 68kb in size ? But I love it!

The Cat Delay features independent control of the tempo of the left and right channels to the BPM of the VST host, independent control of the note-length settings of each channel, and a filter section. The delay plugin is very intuitive to use, and it can make great sounding delay lines in no time!

Also the replaced snare track is using the same reverb
