Re: Ohne Ruhm

Damnit, it was my idea! Now it's a competition and I didn't want to have to work that hard. :) Oh whew, you didn't add tracks. I've got a lot of the same changes so far, though I am impressed by your reverbology! Do you get annoyed when you hear bad reverb now that you're an expert? Nice work, jast,...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

Nice work, Chumpy! For those with Ozone, the presets are great for individual tracks, too. IMO it's really the presets you pay for- there are free/built-in VSTs for each stage in Ozone. There's just less opportunity to screw up when they picked a general starting point. (If you have a recent version...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

You mention my mastering in your comments - and I agree, it is painfully obvious I am not sounding as polished as most other competitors - which sucks because I do try to master, but I am clearly not very good at it. First: I think your mixes are great, and I do appreciate a song that's barely mast...

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

Dang.

Ya, I wouldn't say you're as 'rock' as Neds but you got the groovy bass and pacing. If you did their two basses thing I would definitely swoon. This was one of my (slightly cringey) attempts at copying them a long time ago: http://sfjukebox.org/fights/a_scary_thing

Re: Ohne Ruhm

Whenever you've got a chance. I'm just finishing up editing for this week but if I get time it'd be kind of neat to bring in the remix next week.

Ned's Atomic Dustbin. Hope it's not offensive to say. ;) This would probably be a decent comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o4a9E89Iq3o

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

I think we all agree. Different arguments and points of view can all be equally valid but on different planes. To me, a marathon is a type of game, but the difference is that you are playing against yourself and the monumental challenge, too. I think what happened, in retrospect, is that I made a va...

The New Ugly podcast episode 5 - Nur Ein XII round 4

Like every episode, this is either the greatest, or the worst. I don't blame you for feeling either way.

If anyone's waiting - my recording PC took a dump on itself. I'm working on getting the last episode up with backup gear.

Re: Nur Ein XII Round Five

I'm going to go to my judging booth and ponder how to rank these. You all put in some great work - but someone's gotta get cut, and that makes me sad. 73 Keep It Beautiful - This is fantastic. Cute drum sounds. Nice synth. Very solid - I have nothing critical or interesting to say - in a good way. B...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

Ok so I don't want to get too crazy pie-in-the-sky, but what if we alternate 8 week competitions and the top contestants become judges? Maximize the inbred music taste.

I didn't even realize it was in the realm of possibilities! I would have volunteered 2 years ago, too, though we wouldn't have seen me flame out with my awesome Caravan Ray impersonation.

Here is how much each judge was "off" by, compared to the final results:P Ah, I see what you're doing now. I think this might be a little more enlighting? J1: 0 0 4 5 5 2 1 0 6 5 = avg 2.3, median 3, min 0, max 6, range 6 J2: 0 5 2 2 1 2 4 2 1 1 = avg 2.0, median 2, min 0, max 5, range 5 ...

You are wagering a lot on a single phrase. Hope it's good! ;)

Re: The New Ugly podcast episode 4 - Nur Ein XII round 3

I haven't the foggiest idea what boundaries you thought the Cavedwellers were pushing. I thought all the rhythms melodies and chords were rather standard rock. This is what makes you special, because your music usually sounds like you're trying to be different! It's a gift. Just because it isn't al...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Four

73 Keep It Beautiful - Sugar Ray wants his intro back. Nice work but very repetitious without much dynamics. Balance Lost - Great production on top of your typical thang. I wonder what would happen if you slowed down or went half-time on the beats for once, cause it comes off a bit spastic sometime...
