Re: Early signs your house is falling apart (Crack In The Wall prefight)

Cool, another ambience challenge! I have not yet written lyrics to my Nur Ein song, but I won't be lazy, so I'll write a separate song for this fight. Also, I kind of like the challenge. A lot, in fact. I probably wouldn't even mind if the Nur Ein challenge was "Ambience" each week.

Re: Circle of Titles VII

Hi everyone! CoT VII has become kind of a mess not unlike VI, which is mostly my fault. I'm terribly sorry for having suddenly disappeared from SF altogether last year, including the Circle of Titles. I wasn't too well overall, but I'm feeling better now and recording songs and stuff. I have sent ja...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Arby - It's possible to get a great recording with 1 stereo mic into a recorder. Cowboy Junkies did it with "The Trinity Session". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trinity_Session They had a great room with great acoustics. They had a $9000 Calrec Ambisonic mic into RDAT. They used a PA ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Some more reviews! This was a cool title and challenge, and most of your songs were adequately good. Very strong competition this year. BMac: I like the chord progression, melody, and vocal delivery, but it gets a bit boring as the song goes on. Ir would definitely benefit from some variation in you...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Right. The production is doable (not going to say I'm good at it) but ONLY if you have recorded your tracks separately. Our biggest issue is we don't have the ability to record the tracks separately, so we went with a "live" recording in the rehearsal studio. Not under any delusion that i...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Nick Soma the way you mispronounce ‘rhetoric’ threw me off. Wow, I had to look that up. Guess you refer to the accent on the wrong syllable, is that correct? Well, as you know (or don't?), English is not my mother tongue. The word is "rhe-TO-risch" in German, "re-TO-rico" in Ita...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

Listening now. Pepper Jane's is lovely. Merisan strong as usual. I'm always amazed by how clear and loud (well-mixed) some of the recordings are. HOW do you get them to sound so good?!?!? Mine sound like they were recorded in a basement under a sackcloth by comparison. :oops: Hi, Nick Soma here. I'...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

I listened to all the songs yesterday, and I'll have another listen later this day and write reviews. Lots of good songs, my favorite being Merisan's.
I would also like to mention that the Boffo Yux one is the best I've ever heard from you. :)
