So first of all, I checked in mono, and almost the totality of the percussions and rhythmic elements disappear (which is obviously something that I should have checked).
Regarding the mix, there’s quite a bit of saturation plugins on many of the channels, same for reverb. Some x-noise and similar plugins on some channels; on the master bus I have compressions, little eq, Izotope 7 (with tape, maximiser, eq,comp,exciter and imager), and again, saturation.
I have the feeling that I overcooked an audio signal that wasn’t properly recorder, messing it up a bit.
It does sounds thin and strange, missing something, and not focused, not central.
There’s no hard panning in any channel, but, the intro guitar are 2 separate tracks panned +10/-10. Now, inverting the phase of 1 of them, I get a full body “in your face” kinda sound for 1 guitar, while the other disappear.
Sorry for the long message, is there any other info I can give you to help understanding the issue? Although it seems to be phase issues and overall bad quality recording/mic positioning.
