Re: Circle of Titles VII

Good news! The website is now complete and contains all the songs submitted to me. 11 out of 15, could be worse. ;)

Re: Circle of Titles VI

Two more songs from CoT VI have surfaced and are now added to the archive. If you happen to be reading this and have songs that are missing from the website (even if you already sent them to someone else; all of that has been lost), please let me know and I'll add them. https://cot.music-jk.net/circ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round Zero "Trial By Fire"

I'm always amazed by how clear and loud (well-mixed) some of the recordings are. HOW do you get them to sound so good?!?!? Mine sound like they were recorded in a basement under a sackcloth by comparison. :oops: You've already gotten a fair bit of feedback on that. I just listened to your recording...

Can you elaborate a little on how it compares to, say, your favourite DAW in terms of usage? I've used REAPER a lot and now I'm kind of wondering whether I've been limiting myself in terms of automation without noticing it...

I didn't get enough responses to even figure out the full circle. Seemed kind of lame to publish a fraction of the entries or leave the rest with "who submitted this? Beats me" or "who got this? Beats me"... Stats: Title sets where I know all of the titles, the submitter and the ...

Re: Track sequencing

Listening habits are one thing. The other is that, to an extent, the ordering of the tracks is part of the artistic package. When people say the order doesn't matter, that's like saying all the effort you put into tracks a casual listener is hardly going to notice doesn't matter, either. That said, ...

I disagree. I say they totally could have done better, and it was quite the mess the way they did it. I'm not sure I recall all the details correctly so some of this may be a little off the mark.

Re: No sunlight in sight (Black Days reviews)

Jan: It’s pretty decent. I like the beat and pads in the chorus. The line “no one knows why” doesn’t seem to fit sonically, maybe because it subverts the rhyme. That's kind of funny because that line is part of the only rhyme in the chorus... and the verses don't rhyme at all. Also, everyone, thank...
