Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 4 Listening Party and VOTING Info

Sent my votes in, but incredibly difficult to pick between these four songs. Good luck to all!

Let the record show that Jocko's shadow absolutely rules.

Re: Pimps and thieves run free in (A Long Plastic Hallway prefight)

I was curious about the title, I assume this is the source: The TV business is uglier than most things. It is normally perceived as some kind of cruel and shallow money trench through the heart of the journalism industry, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like ...

Re: Why/How you should double tracks rather than make a copy and pan.

I do a fair amount of doubling but I definitely think faking it can give interesting results too, and I'm absolutely not averse to leaving a guitar in the middle if it sounds good! When faking it I tend to use one of these (free, cross-platform) plugins rather than manually copying and panning / del...

Re: SpinTunes 17 Round 3 Challenge

Mine's close to four minutes too. I figure that's okay now that we're down to a smaller field of contestants!

Really enjoyed this challenge. Very much out of my comfort zone, in a good way.

Re: Don't break the Internet, (Break the Bank prefight)

In Reaper you can right-click at the top (where the bar numbers are) and add a "tempo / time signature change marker" or something like that, didn't check the wording but it should be obvious.

Re: Least-shitty distribution and manufacturing channels

Having recently stuck some stuff by an old band out via Amuse, I can confirm that they take one month. But the first week is validation, so if it fails for any reason (e.g. in my case one of the tracks was already on streaming because it was on a compilation) then you have to start again. BUT it's f...

Just sent mine in. Was really struggling for energy and motivation this week, but coffee came to the rescue. I think my song came out really well!

Looking forward to hearing the massive number of other songs! Good luck to the judges.

Urgh, so I have felt pretty weird about reviews for a while for some reason and I'm not convinced anything I have to say here is useful to anyone but I don't want to become a never-reviewer either, so here we go.

Re: Deals On Gear and Software

I grabbed a cheap upgrade for Ozone and Neutron recently, packaged together. Mostly for Ozone because the plugins I used to use for "mastering" were no longer being updated, but Neutron seems pretty handy too and I'm definitely not averse to any kind of automated assistance. I never got anything I l...
