Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

RG&LW – Tight BVs work well, they sound great on Niv’s voice. I really like the second 80s part. caught me by surprise in a good way. The long sample at the end also freaked me out, I had to check I didn’t have a tab open playing some odd advert video so purpose served. I guess getting freaked out ...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

lol, we actually have like a case of chocolate Soylent in the back of the fridge because Diaz brought like a case home because some street team was trying to give away samples and failing so hard that at the end they were just asking people if they wanted whole cases and she took a case, to be nice...

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

Amazing that anyone doesn't know what Soylent Green is. What I find disturbing is the product that actually exists now called Soylent. I'm like, "does no one remember that movie and its iconic punch line as shouted by Charlton Heston??!?!"

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

I forgot to mention that our product is a pill that makes you popular.

Nivs sang lead and played guitar, I sang and played Omni, Dr. Tom Urwin played bass and did the voice over, Ellen plays drums and sang back up.

Re: Nur Ein XIII Round One "Internet Sensation"

Ours is in - written and recorded in 3 hours in the rehearsal studio. Nivs and I were both sick as dogs with a cold (and you can kind of hear it) BUT nonetheless I feel pretty good about this one! Though I am wishing we took the hoody off of the Blue Snowball for the final take (the one we used). So...

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

Haha, nice. No big deal, then! I'll just run out and duplicate that setup :P There are small keyboard amps with inputs for microphones. You could sing through that to give your vocals the boost you want. You could also cut the other instruments back, or have them adjust their parts or equalization ...

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

Arby - It's possible to get a great recording with 1 stereo mic into a recorder. Cowboy Junkies did it with "The Trinity Session". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Trinity_Session They had a great room with great acoustics. They had a $9000 Calrec Ambisonic mic into RDAT. They used a PA to boost t...

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...

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

PS also LOVE DJ Ranger Den's. Fischer & Diaz strong new contender, the spoken intro and rapping is fun. I like Owl Chemist too. The music is very cool. Sort of a dentist's drill sample going on at times :P

Listening now. Pepper Jane's is lovely. Merisan strong as usual. 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:

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

Our song is kind of a retelling of The Scarlett Letter from the perspective of Hester Prynne. Full band recording in our rehearsal studio! Credits: R. Brookes McKenzie - vocals, Omnichord E. Niveous Rayside - guitar, backing vocals Tom Q. Urwin - bass, mini-synth Ellen Croteau - drums, backing vocals

Re: The New Ugly - Nur Ein podcast episode 2 (round 1)

re: Omnichord - the specific model I'm playing on "After You" is Om-300 which is my personal favorite. The sounds are very different from one model to the next - the OM-36 and -84 are very fuzzy tones, while the 100 and up sound much clearer due to the better quality samples used. On "After You" I u...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round One

We're in, but I could have tweaked the EQ all night. probably making it worse instead of better, so I'm thankful we didn't finish days before the deadline.

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

I’m not sure “fingers crossed” is really the title of this song, but that’s a nitpick. I agree with you, tbh, but I hope it doesn't count against us. Nowhere did it say the title has to be the right title for the song.... right? Just that the song has to be called {challenge title} which I assumed ...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

Lucky Witch & the Righteous Ghost- Welcome to the other side. Why no drums? Is the lack of drums really the choice you wanted? This song is begging for some drums. That said, this is a pretty cool song! Always love your lyrics, these are sweetly metal! Fun little War in Heaven tale! Good stuff! Fig...

Re: Nur Ein XII - Round Zero

For the backwards part I used the chorus of our song over the verse chords, also backwards! I was amazed that it worked.
