Wow, your ears are good!

There is a soft clip on the attack the snare bottom mic:

Couldn't hear it, but sure can see it.

What you're seeing is the raw WAV file, no processing, which was recorded in my friend's studio on ProTools, using some kind of tube compressor going into a Digi firewire interface, then imported into Ardour.

It's nowhere near digital clipping, so perhaps the clip was in the compressor or the preamp? I dunno. Maybe I'll try running it through postfish's "declip".

Yeah, you can probably pull them now.

So it turns out there were HUGE modes in THREE instruments in the 70-200Hz low mids. The main sound of the guitar was 180Hz! The fundamental of the kick is 80Hz and the bass has a huge booming resonant mode around 120Hz.

Here is a remixed Ginseng Strut with 120Hz hauled out of the bass, 80Hz hauled out of the kick, and around 180Hz hauled out of the guitar:

I'm trying to decide if I should go through all the tracks and do this EQ trick on these three instruments, or just fix it at the mastering stage.

Also, thanks for pointing me to postfix. I love it. TEN bands of compression instead of three, and I like the UI better than JAMIN (i.e. thresholds and meters in the same place). Bummer it doesn't do JACK, but I like the idea of doing mastering in batch mode after the mix stage anyway.
