Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Five "Novel"

I thought this challenge was really cool but I ended up not being able to get anything done, after I threw out my entire concept that I had the demo for. my second concept didn't progress past the chorus only stage lyrically and my samples were underwhelming at best. maybe I'll try again for Summer ...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

Virgo Power - I like your vocals on this, I think it's a good range for you, they sound nice and strong and clear. Not everything lines up, which you know already (I'll have to go back and listen to the fixed version). OK, listening to the fixed version: the transitions into/out of the choruses are...

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

Virgo Power I like the nursery rhyme feel to the intro before the drop into the darker verse. I do love that omnichord sound and there's good variety in the arrangement. However, there are some iffy pitch and timing issues in the vocals. I wonder if you're trying to record all of your vocals in one...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

Virgo Power - fixed version is much improved but the verse and chorus still feel a little divorced from each other. Good vocal performance, the doubling / harmonies are effective but in such a stripped down mix it does stand out when the timing isn't quite perfect. Agreed. It almost feels to me as ...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

OK I decided to take a little time to fix mine - to the best of my current ability, without re-recording (since a) it's the middle of the night and b) I'm far too lazy). transitions are still awkward as hell but I THINK the synching is much better. https://soundcloud.com/roesmoker/june-moon?in=roesm...

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Four "June Moon"

Submitted my shadow. Ended up including a few imperfect rhymes. Gotta serve the song, ya know? same. once again I struggled all week to come up with a song, and it wasn't until 7pm tonight that I had a working demo, with no words for the second verse. then i had to drive to Jersey and back for 1.45...

Ah thanks! Now to resume panicking. Damn straight. I am in Friday morning and apart from a theme I am empty. I have no music. No melody. Nothing to hook my overly-complicated idea on. dude, I'm almost as bad off. I have a chorus and an idea only. I wrote some verses but I am not even sure if I'm go...
