Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Pigfarmer Jr - Like a lot of the other songs, you've picked a genre and done it fairly well, but you're not owning it for yourself. Everything is very constant and you could use some dynamics - for example- the guitar overpowers things for the entire duration of the song. Thank you for the comment ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

Currently: Puffing out chest in a proud display of writing, recording and mixing a song with more than 8 hours to go before the deadline. Oh, and letting the mix sit for a day so I can go back with fresh ears. Also, realizing that if there is more than an hour or two left before the deadline then th...

Re: NUR EIN! After You Lyrics

Re: It's Gone, Ruined, Broken... (So Much For That Reviews)

Another strong fight. Berkeley: I like the sound, the arrangement and especially the guitars. I don't know if it's pitch or tone, but sometimes the vocals are just a bit off for me. I do like them toward the end, though. The attitude in the delivery works well. Flaming Shotpounder: The cymbals where...

Re: Old Friends (will at least give you Reviews)

After submitting, I noted the same mismatch between the vocal and the beats that you describe. In the recording process I use, I usually have to manually line up the vocal track for each verse with the rest of the music. For some reason, I did a really lousy job this time. I don't know how you reco...

Re: How to metal?

I liked that song. Not as much as my friends, but it was cool enough. I'd never make that association, but I see where it comes from.

It's Gone, Ruined, Broken... (So Much For That Reviews)

You ever have one of those songs where you feel like you should apply for a salvage title? Hopefully the reviewers don't think so.

Re: Old Friends (will at least give you Reviews)

Joey Wildcat - The 70's guitars are awesome. (Reminds me slightly of both the byrds and Doug Sahm.) This is a tight arrangement, tight harmonies and just all around good performance. It's a catchy hook. You done good, kid. Jermicahtorium - It's meta and typically meta is a dangerous ground for me. (...

Reference Tracks

I'd love to get a wide range of good ones and start using reference tracks in my mixing more consistently. aside (A reference track is a good sounding (not necessarily well liked) commercial recording one compares their mix (or master) to in order ...

Thanks for giving a damn is a damn good one for stories from musicians. Not so much for learning songwriting or production, though.

Re: How to metal?

I would say the arrangement would be important, but I'm not help with identifying those traits. Both in how the song is constructed but also what instruments to use where. I like the idea of a more metal pink floyd project, but it sounds hard to pull off. Then again, it'd be fun to fail while trying...

Re: Article about how the streaming economy works and a call to action

I enjoyed reading the article and it puts the limitations on streaming into a coherent argument. I'm not sure that they aren't dismissing the limitations of their suggestion, though. But it can't be any worse for the average artist, can it?

Re: The Dark Art of Mastering Music

Read the article in full and it was a good read. It also gives a better idea of what I should be aiming for when I "master" songs. It sure doesn't say how, though, does it? Guessing that Bob Katz book is gonna have to get read after all.
