Re: Let us all know in your (Expert Opinion reviews)

I made a song for this fight! I truly thought I sent it in on time. I've sent it to the Fightmaster and hope he will add it to the mix.

Re: Nur Ein XV Round Zero "This is Fine"

Just finished listening to all the songs and there are many really good ones. I don't envy the judges having to whittle this excellent group down. Lots of folks I don't recognize. My ear was particularly grabbed by a number, including the Lowest Bitter. Here are a couple of notes for the two songs I...

Re: Nur Ein XV Round One "The Handbook"

Since Jon Eric is also in Nur Ein, I'd like to point out how awesome Chewbacca Bra's Dinga Da Donda is, how it rules this challenge, and how is it still one of my favorite songfight songs I've had a hand in making.

Re: Near enough to perfect... (Bent Straight reviews)

Just curious, are you applying high pass filters to remove any subsonic mud on tracks with no significant bass component? (I'm reading Mixing Secrets by Mike Senior, and such questions are on my mind). Just wanted to pull this out in case folks skip your BSS review. This is the number 1 first lesso...

Web based collaboration tools

Hi All, I just saw that Spotify has an online collaboration site called https://www.soundtrap.com where you can make music alone or with others. They have a 30 day trial. I've also seen www.jamkazam.com as a place where you can play music together online. Anyone tried either of these or have other s...

Re: RIP Adam Schlesinger

I remember hearing that Adam and Chris Collingwood would play songfight with each other, suggesting unwritable titles for each other.

This one hit me hard as his breadth of projects and output was aspirational.

Re: Pick a cheek (Kissing Contest Reviews)

Berkeley Isolation Scene - I want to like this song more than I like it. Maybe it’s because the pitch of the vocals sounds way too accurate. I’m assuming correction is used...either that or you just have good intonation and a super deadpan delivery that doesn’t work for me at all. Anyway, the guita...
