Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

I didn’t do anything clever per se, but I did overlay some secondary chords on my final chorus. I also had the challenge of figuring out how to do my chords at all, as the violin doesn’t really loan itself to that. I ended up laying down a track of single root notes, some tracks of double stopped n...

Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

Huh, those reviews made me realise that I'd completely forgotten about the optional challenge while listening / reviewing these, even though I thought it was an interesting one and I was looking forward to seeing how people interpreted it. In retrospect I think Third Cat had the most interesting sou...

Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

I know you mentioned something about the syllables of the title informing the writing of this song, but as a listener it just feels like any old instrumental with the title repeated a few times at the start So it didn’t come across that the repeated tune at the beginning was derived from the pitche...

Re: Look at these cool (Secret Handshake Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene : I really, really like the spoken word stuff here. It's something I don't think I've heard from BSS before and you do it really well - the use of repetition is really effective and there's an excellent energy to the spoken delivery. Chorus is catchy and effective too, and I a...

Re: I definitely know it (Secret Handshake prefight)

My mum makes a tomato-and-basil and a leek-and-potato and serves them half and half in the same bowl, it's magic. I wish I'd been reminded of this earlier so I could have shoehorned it into the most tenuous "two chords, two soups" Secret Handshake song ever written. Evidence: https://www.instagram.c...

Re: It's a bit white and bony (Skeleton Key reviews)

Great fight! I like nearly all of these. Berkeley Social Scene : this is a really great, punchy-sounding song which is very welcome after the scrappier production on the last couple of BSS songs, and that bass intro really works as an immediate hook into the song. It also leans heavily towards the n...

Re: New Music Friday - 7/12/19

It's my favourite album of the year but I haven't found myself wanting to listen to it very much since he died.

Re: SoundCloud limiting free accounts to _15 tracks_!!

https://audiomack.com/ looks kinda interesting as a SoundCloud alternative, although I've not dug very deep into the website yet. A friend of mine who runs a studio has spoken positively about https://bounceboss.co.uk/ which is a slightly different feature set, more of a "place to upload mixes to sh...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

What are the biggest differences between Essential and Assistant? Also you know my untuned vocals and inclinations for how much I want to tune things better than anyone, would you recommend buying, say, Melodyne Essential to me? I may have further input once I've had more time to actually check out...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I just upgraded from Melodyne Essential to Assistant in the most recent sale, but haven't gotten a chance to play with it yet. I was pretty impressed with Essential as an entry-level product though. Especially since they released the VST3 version which automatically analyses the audio rather than ha...

Re: You wouldn't dare... (Try Me Reviews)

Congrats, Syrup!

I didn't get around to reviewing this time but my favourite was gizo's song, and I enjoyed Jim Tyrrell and Mandibles very much also. Looking forward to checking out the podcast!

Re: Novembeat

Well, I've made it to ten! But not to half an hour, which was my other target, so I'll hopefully do another one to finish off this week.

Re: Novembeat

Little piano thing, finishing off the other partly-recorded idea I had in reserve. Hopefully time for one or two more this week because I'm away for my mum's birthday next weekend. Definitely want to make it to 10 tracks / half-an-hour if possible! https://soundcloud.com/novomber/beauty-is-embarrass...

Re: Novembeat

I'd like to think I can manage another three tracks and make it to ten in total, especially since I already have two things started. Ten is a nice number.
