Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Six "Summer Robot"

Elks : You get 'On Horseback' by Mike Oldfield. It's complicated how we ended up there, but congratulations. Also you can have some Arthur Lyman too, to keep the mood going. Also we all know this is really about the Iron Giant, which is how it should be. FrbmePR-mUk WHWQo4wExsk Thank you so much fo...

Re: Nur Ein XVII Round Six - Summer Robot

I fixed it last night and posted a version that actually sounds good to SoundCloud, for all our friends to hear.

I'm thinking maybe for the edit I'll try using a slightly clearer sounding reverb, but stacking it on a delay send?
Yeah I thought maybe having them on a delay might work, like how you did during the chorus (I think).

Re: Nur Ein XVII: Round Two "Floating In the Water"

Here are some off-the-cuff reviews: Adam Adamant - love the synths. vocal delivery reminds me of Figurine. wish the vocals were a bit cleaner and more upfront with more aggressive autotune. The Alleviators - so chill, so relaxing. i like the vibe and the washy reverb. doubled vocals is great, might ...

Re: Blue Lang Hxaro

Blue was also part of Japantown Three http://songfight.org/artistpage.php?key=japantown_three, which was Blue, myself, and Jack Shite I think? I remember the little practice space we worked on the song in, but I don't remember if it was for an SFL or what.

Re: What was that? (Disembodied Voice reviews)

Add - this is really pleasant, good story, recording quality is excellent as usual. i like the simplicity of the structure and the lyrics keep me engaged. Brown Word and the Big Whine - i like the chorus and the harmony is good. the vocals sound nice floated over the crunchy guitars, but i might lik...

Wasn't sure I was gonna make it, but it all worked out. I completed the optional challenge by just not writing a chorus.

Re: Disembodied Voices

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

Future Boy—This sounds great. It gets me immediately in the groove, and the even-toned vocal fits well with the sound of the instruments. While I completely agree with sentiments of the lyrics, many of them are phrased in a very orthodox fashion, so they come off too much as platitudes. Overall, th...

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

First impression reviews, somewhat terse: Abandoned Bandana - I really like all of your synth work. The "katamari roll" lyric made me smile. Good track. add - such good crisp recording quality, mixing very well done, I loved the backwards guitar and tremolo solo lines sneaking in. the main riff is c...

Re: And now you see (How It Comes Apart reviews)

I will say I kinda miss hearing the Rhodes, but that’s pure nitpicking. It's in there, just buried a bit under the synths. I think I might have gone too heavy on the distorted pad and could have pulled it back in the mix to let the Rhodes through, since it is doubling the pad part but with nice spa...

Sappy sax features in there for the sax fans, but you have to wait until the instrumental bridge.
Oh, nice, I've really been enjoying your sax playing.
