Re: Nur Ein XV Round Four "Carte Blanche"

I am more of a bitchy bitch. Almost like that cartoon character with all the money, yet not at all like that.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

This is something I have always struggled with. You are quite correct in thinking that I use headphone to mix predominantly. This is out of necessity as I don't want to disturb family members, either asleep or just in the same room watching tablet and giving me grief when I turn the speakers on[......

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Three "Rear Window"

Okay! Here we go! Glow Worm - You're on point as always. The guest vocalist is phenomenal. My main complaint is that keyboard patch in the break sections - I don't care for the timbre. The mix is good overall. Things do sound a bit distorted (especially the vocals) but it does sound like an intentio...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

If the SM7B is within your budget, it's a solid choice used on many multi-platinum albums for decades, and you should have a real hard time being too loud for that mic. (Most folks have the opposite problem with it.) Glenn Case uses one too and possibly other folks on here. That microphone is argua...

You've officially driven me crazy. That is what I live to do! Glad I could oblige! Full disclosure - Miscalculation on my part. No spreadsheets in this instance.

Lucky Spoon - Fantastic! This is incredibly fun! Lyrics are exceptional. The story had me glued to hear what happened next even before realizing the entire thing is referencing the Mandalorian!

Oh dear. Another crap title/ challenge combo. Looks like last weeks good one was an anomaly.
Look at the bright side: You might be eliminated this round anyway, and then you won't need to write a song!

This is a cool challenge because it has me creating something quite unlike my usual tracks. This makes me happy to read!

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

Micah Sommersmith ... Your vocals sound super crispy in the mix when you're hitting S sounds, and not in a good way. Thanks for the review! I struggled a lot trying to tame the S sounds in my vocals on this entry - sometimes it's an issue when I'm recording, sometimes it's not, so I'm not sure how ...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

Where did we land with percussive mouth sounds? I’m taking this challenge to mean as many vocal tracks as you like, but only two instrumental tracks. I figure body percussion is its own instrument, but What about percussive vocal takes? If any clarification is forthcoming, this would be useful to m...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

I am genuinely impressed. Nearly everyone had better sounding vocals this week across the board. I listened to all of these songs in the background as I worked at the day job on Monday, and then I sat down after work to give more thorough listens. Full disclosure - The bottom of the pack wasn't near...

A goat counts as an instrument right?
Probably depends on how you play it.
And how much you suck
Ha! Yes! There is that?

On that note: Mo - Who brought a goat here for the Chupacabra to suck between the acts?

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Two "Chupacabra"

Well, I guess I'll be "that guy" this time... Where do the judges land on the idea of overdubbing our two instruments? If I play three or four separate parts looped on the same physical guitar, is that kosher? And what about layered vocals? Four part harmony, etc? Also, do handclaps, finger snaps, ...

Hi all, I have seven more reviews left to write, but I should be able to turn in my rankings on time. I am using a scoring system I have used in the past when I have been a judge for similar competitions.

Re: Do you realize there are (Something's Wrong Reviews)

Glenn Case : Cool intro and guitars. I wasn't expecting this. Kind of a throwback vocal. It reminds me slightly of a Phil Collins 80's vocal (from the mix, not the quality/sound/performanc) or maybe a little Steely Dan? I'm not sure those are fair to you, but it's cool. I like the phrasing on the c...
