Rap is a vocal technique. Saying that most of rap is total shit is like saying that most of vibrato is total shit.

Rap is also a genre, so I disagree.

It is not a genre, just like vibrato isn't a genre. It is very commonly used in some genres of music such as hip hop and nu metal, though.

Wikipedia says you're right that it's not technically a genre. Nonetheless, a lot of people associate it with one I believe.

But I was talking about hip hop, anyway.

Can someone recommend me some metalcore tracks that you think are really well produced and professional sounding? Preferably ones that have both clean vocals and screaming. Doesn't matter that much if it's a good song or not, I just need them for reference.

Oh, that's an idea. Using professional songs for reference! Why did I not think of this before?

Sadly, I have no roots in metalcore.

Do the drums sound better in this, Awaclus?

Significantly.

I lowered the gain from the compressor, and I also compressed it a lot less. I think that was the problem, though I never heard any problem. I don't know, sometimes I feel like I can't hear problems other people can.

I don't think it was too much compressed. I think you can safely have around 20 db of gain reduction on a snare drum before it even gets noticeable when it's playing that slowly, and it's usually fine to push the compressor even harder because it's not really a downside in electronic music if the compression on the drums is slightly audible.

For the record, this was for this:

Something I worked on recently. I am very proud of the drum mixing, although I wish I did more variance with them. In addition, I think I could have boosted the bass a bit more.

I made a collaboration with the very talented vocalist SEiMEi from the Philippines, which turned out to be quite the project. I spent a total of 155 hours producing the music over the course of one year, and now it's finally done. Phew.

155 hours for five minutes? :o

That's 155 hours for 300 seconds, making over 1 hour for every two seconds.

Yeah. Something like 20-40 hours per song is more typical for my productions.

It should be noted though that the length of the song is largely irrelevant (it only matters for recording, and even then you can copy&paste a lot). Rather, what makes the production take longer is having a lot of complex sound design, and this song certainly had that because I designed all the sounds from scratch multiple times since I improved a lot on the way. Also there are like a dozen of different lead synths.

My band's new variance in production mix of one of our songs from Misanthropy was included on Folk Metal Grove's compilation album (which is free to download). There's also a lot of other cool bands there so it's worth checking it out.
