Re: Mastering

These days my process for "mastering" my tracks (quotes because it's not really mastering, just setting the final volume) has become very minimal: no leveling, no limiting, no eq, no stereo widening, no sonic maximizing, no mid-side processing, no harmonic exciting, and heaven forbid no multiband an...

Re: Nur Ein XV Final Round "Pistols At Dawn"

Shaddow Liner Notes: as threatened, I gave myself a hard timebox of two hours and wrote a song about an... old cowboy? Not what I expected to write.

Re: NUR EIN XV - Pistols at Dawn

Pistols At Dawn by Max Bombast I came riding into town On the trail I was hunting down A bounty worth a thousand pounds of gold I stepped into the old saloon And saw my mark whom I presume Must be a cowboy near a century old and I said Put 'em up to the sky The wanted sign said dead or alive And I ...

Well, I'm stunned and humbled.
Be neither stunned, nor humble: your song was amazing and absolutely belongs in the finals.

As for me, I am happy to be going out at my Bombast-iest. See y'all in the shadows.
