    What's up people? I hope everyone has been well. It's been a few months since my last post. I have this new song I've been working on and as usual I can never tell it it's done or not, so long story short....Help!

    I was challenged by a friend of mine to do something old school from scratch. We both love 60's R&B and Motown so it started as something like that and then took on a life of its own. I guess I wanted the song itself to have a retro vibe but for the production to be more up to date so its an interesting blend.

    It's a dense, Spector-ish arrangement with a lot going on, so the challenge was making it all fir together, which was not always easy but I did have a blast doing it.

    Any ideas, thoughts and opinions are welcome, I like to hear what people have to say as long as your being honest and straight up. As always I'm concerned with the EQ and getting the right balance of frequencies between the lo's mid's and hi's. that and the compression which I think I've gotten a lot better at making the song sound alive instead of squeezing too hard.

    But anything you folks can think of that I might have missed please let me know. I guess I've also been getting interested in submitting to some libraries for possible licensing deals and I'm curious about whether my work holds up or not. I'm really trying to get to a point where my stuff sounds professional.

    Anyway thanks in advance and I look forward to hearing your thoughts. Be excellent to each other and party on dudes!

    Well, the musical vibe is certainly there, very Spectorish, very similar to Be My Baby.

    But boy oh boy, you've got some serious sonic issues happening, not the first of which is some kind of heavy lossy/artifact(s) occurring ... this may be due to Soundcloud's conversion, some of us here have had problems with them in the past, although I've never heard them sound this bad.

    I suggest you use RO's built in media player... at the bottom right hand side of the screen, you'll see a button, just to the right of "post reply" that says "upload file". Click on this, and then upload your MP3 - use the version directly from your own computer, and NOT a regurgitated soundcloud file. You are wanting to upload the exact same file that you uploaded from your computer to soundcloud.

    Then we can talk, once we eliminate the possibilities of sonic issues that might have been caused by soundcloud's conversion/data compresssion.
