Re: sonofgearfight #1: "These are the Jokes"

Spotify's specs say integrated LUFS. https://artists.spotify.com/help/article/loudness-normalization Target the loudness level of your master at -14dB integrated LUFS and keep it below -1dB TP (True Peak) max. This is best for lossy formats (Ogg/Vorbis and AAC) and makes sure no extra distortion’s ...

Re: sonofgearfight #1: "These are the Jokes"

Suggested mastering to -13 LUFS. If you don't know about it, we can dig up some reference articles. This has always been something that has interested me and I am never sure whether I am doing it right or not. My question is are you looking for LUFS integrated or short term? I have aimed for -13 LU...

Also I have just noticed that the challenge hasn't been marked as Non-optional like the other ones.
Just thought that after weeks of doing this, the fact that these challenges are never optional would be... a fact.
Here's me thinking I'd been dead clever and found a loophole :P

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

To be honest it will be a bit of a relief to go. Going from spintunes to this has been fun but exhausting.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

I'm going to give the challenge an upward modulation with my middle finger :P

Jokes aside, I appreciate your comments and you have to weigh it up with something and that seems fair. I will be proud to go out on this song compared with my crappy song I went out on last year.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Five "The Only Way Out"

God damn, looks like I ballsed up the challenge ... again! In my defence what I did was google modulation and found (Music, other) music the transition from one key to another Downward means go down (obviously). So I tried to add elements that go from one key down to the other and didn't think anyth...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Six "Devil In The Rain"

I've been trying to write down time codes for cuts and fades in this video and work out what my plan is for this challenge, and just putting it out there that this might be the worst Nur Ein challenge ever. As far as I can make out there's around 20 cuts in this under 3 minute video. Some of them a...

Re: Nur Ein XVI - The Only Way Out

See-Man-Ski This was another one that I struggled with up until I started mixing then I just adding distortion and I grew to like it. It is definitely one of my more wordy tracks. It's all about scamming the scammer. Musically it is actually very simple a lot of the guitar parts and that distorted ...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Four "Waiting For The Sun To Fall"

see-man-ski - One rondel... well, sort of. That first verse AaBb rhyme scheme kicked you down my rankings a bit. I didn't see where any traditional rondel forms used it. Yes, modern takes of the poetic form are out there. But other artists didn't take this liberty and overcame the restriction with ...

the Sun is crap but I can think of other newspapers that should probably get the chop first. This is just our little secret, but as soon as the title "Waiting for the Daily Mail to Fall" is posted along with another rondel challenge I'll be submitting this same track to that fight. Thanks for the r...

My ramblings for what they are worth, probably nowt.

Thanks, judges, furrypedro, Tommy G, and everyone else who's shared their reaction to this song. I had no idea it would catch on. My wife has been singing "NEIN! WE ROW!" all week.

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round Two "Drag Me Around"

see-man-ski This brings me straight back to the days of Abominominous in the Nur Ein. That's a positive. I like the snarl in the chorus and the guitar tone is enjoyable. There's a steely jangle to the whole thing that I can't get behind but overall I do dig this one a fair amount. I also wish the d...

I did think I met the main challenge though.

Re: Nur Ein XVI - Drag Me Around

See-Man-Ski So my take on this challenge was more to do with the lyrics that the music. I think the music fits but it wasn't what I was going for. I wanted to write something that acts as a bridge lyrically. They way I saw it working is that I wrote Semiprecious about spending more than what you ha...

Re: Nur Ein XVI: Round One "Pareidolia"

see-man-ski - I like your voice. The piano becomes a bit much after a bit. I like this song, but did you even use a field recording? (Tacked on birds at the end for like five seconds? Do they serve a purpose at all? Other than not getting DQ'd, I mean?) Is this song even about pareidolia? Even the ...
