Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Basic kit components are plenty, no need for the extra stuff IMO. And the FX board is probably fine too IMO as long as it's fairly intuitive for folks to turn distortion on and off. Folks don't often have more complicated guitar effects needs than that and if they do they should bring their own stuf...

Re: Don't get pricked (Porcupine prefight)

Awesome! I also received an entry by another fighter who has been away for a few years. It's great to see folks come back after long breaks.

Re: Nur Ein XIV, Final Round: Survival

Wow, great songs! Amazing work from the finalists, very impressive. Seems like after some fatigue last week you all got second winds and really went all out. Awesome!

Re: Vocal level automation

I'm finally watching more of that video. Maybe that guy is crazy! He's got a chain that has multiple iterations of EQ, compression, de-esser, AND actually TWO vocal riders. Wha?! And he's sending the vocal to another channel where he's compressing, de-essing, then distortion, then blending in a tiny...

Song Fight! Live 2019: SF Tribute band set?

I'm not sure if we'll need it this year, but last year we felt like we had some extra time to use up at Song Fight! Live and we filled some of that by forming a Song Fight! Tribute band. We played 10 songs from ye olde days, "classic" tunes by "classic" fighters (in our opinions), some of whom are S...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Curds & Chords (Madison WI US 8/2-8/3)

how long we anticipate everyone's sets will be, so we can at least roughly map out both evenings and get at least the start times set in stone. And we'll still have to figure out a practice space situation depending on who's doing what. Here is a big brain dump about set lengths, show timing, etc. ...

Re: Nur Ein XIV Round Six "You Too"

My favorite songs this round were Rain's and Rachael's. I thought they were both simple, beautiful, and honest, and deserved top marks. Everybody's songs were very good though, great job everybody. The field this year was so strong. I'm excited to hear what Agony Sauce and Vowl Sounds come up with f...

Actually I got "Porcupine" from Deep Throat and it is purely a happy coincidence that DT delivered that title the day before fluffy's birthday. :)

Re: Acting on Song Fight feedback

Ooh, good topic. I remember way back when I got started I think there was even more feedback then and it was even more direct, often harsh. It was also harder to find feedback, it was harder just to produce music on computers, etc. So long ago! Initially I was aiming to work on songwriting, singing,...

OK, we have a local "Vintage Synthesizer Museum" which _used_ to seem so impressive but then I saw THIS!! https://www.smemmusic.ch/ This 22 minute video is so great, I loved watching this guy have his mind blown over and over and over again. So cool. Gotta put that on my list. 0XrPLBSlopQ Somebody s...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

Using charts on stands at the show is absolutely par for the course. In fact, sight reading the charts at the show without having previously heard or learned the songs is also very common. :)

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Gear Info

Oh, I forgot something, sorry! Some folks may want to use a device with a headphone jack to provide themselves with backing tracks. So another nice-to-have would be a cable to plug a headphone jack into the PA. Although tbh this hasn't actually been needed the past two years so probably not a big de...

Re: Song Fight! Live 2019: Musicians Exchange

I could pitch in on a couple of sets if anybody wants to try to throw something together. I will even learn your songs in advance, make and bring my own charts, etc. :) I am primarily a guitar player, secondarily a bass player, and less so a drummer, keyboard player, and backup vocalist.
