Re: Nur Ein XVII Round Six - Summer Robot

Challenge/instrumentation notes: the bulk of the instrumentation is a virtual instrument string quartet. So far all of our drums have been "acoustic" models, this one is "electronic" (inasmuch as you can really tell since it is after all a VI in both cases). Technically we've us...

Re: Nur Ein XVII Round Five - Novel

NOVEL by The Alleviators Sample info: The organ/bells/synth playing through most of the song is a multisample synth made with Iris 2 (using the spectral noise shaping procedure here: https://www.izotope.com/en/learn/sound-layering-and-sample-manipulation-in-iris-2.html) and fed midi data.

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Three "Can't Let It Go"

The Alleviators will be in although from the recording perspective we have suffered a lot of overall logistical problems and a plague of last minute technical issues this week. Still a pretty good song, though, I think. Wanted to note here as well as in the lyrics; you'd be forgiven for thinking tha...

Oh dear. It's Thursday morning. I'm at work. Tomorrow I am going to the beach until Monday.

So far my song is a single lyric, and a basic chord progression. In my head. Oh dear.
Hey, I've got some good news.. :D

Grats! Enjoy that beach.

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Two "Floating In the Water"

Checking in to confirm that The Alleviators are also on roughly the third idea, but it seems like we're set now. The second idea was a very Pink Floyd type thing that I like and might use somewhere else, but was probably going to end up too long to be wise for Nur Ein plus lyrics weren't really happ...

Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

Governing Dynamics : bzzzzz. Very Deathcab. I love Deathcab. Thin out the kick drum during the chorus; the busy stuff is great for the verses, but the chorus is stadium rock time. The vocal is slightly too out front, and wanting a little more compression. Maybe bring up the band and throw a bit of ...

Re: Spin Tunes 18 Round 3 - Tell Me What You Want

Governing Dynamics- Home- This is more Death Cab for Cutie than your usual Appleseed Cast. What I’m saying is this is Indie Rock Gold. This is sung in earnest, and it’s serious. Maybe too serious for a musical? There’s something that’s a little too straight about this for my tastes. The singing the...

Re: SpinTunes 18 Round 2 Challenge: 'Escape the Grid'

Anyway, I hereby admit I was unnecessarily nasty in that review. Fixed now. My bad. I appreciate that, Jim, thank you. I am unlikely to abandon my fuzz pedals, that is just kind of what I like. I suspect that's just a genre bridge we aren't going to cross. As far not being able to tell if I was pla...
