Hi all, I am not sure if this is the appropriate thing to do. I didn't see any obvious rules or anything, so I just thought I would introduce myself and ask how this Forum works. I am interested in submitting recordings for critique as well as listening to others music. I really want to learn from others and work on my own music.
Thank you and I look forward to interacting with others!
I've been working on a new instrumental. Well, it's actually a re-work of a track I first attempted 20-odd years ago. Anyhow, what does everyone think? Have I nailed it?.. I'm trying to get the drums to sound 'decent'.. Might have over embellished in a few places..
At usual, I'm mixing on my trusty DT-990 pro headphones.
I am lost
You are found
I open the Bible it fails me no
I open it again the words really coming in
And I know that its comin in
I’m not alone
Your spirit is with me
Its as good as megaphone
Im lost at sea
I call your name
Your callin me
You are good
You’re on your throne
This is my latest composition that I recorded over the last week. As usual, I mixed it on headphones.
In contrast to some of my earlier recordings, I though I'd try out a different drum kit (courtesy of EZDrummer) and tried to sharpen my programming skills. I quite like the sounds -- seems quite 'live' but would be interested to hear what other people think.
Does it work?
Compositionally, the track is a mix of 5/4 and 4/4 time signatures.
Been working on this for awhile now played everything but drums and sing. Mix feels pretty decent appreciate any critique.
This is another recent track I've been working on. Used my tele and some Bias Amp 2 plugins for the amp simulation. All drums were programmed in EZDrummer, and bass in EZBass. Mixed on a pair of DT990 Pro headphones (like the other track I recently posted); unfortunately I don't have the space for decent monitors. I sometimes find the DT990s a bit difficult to mix bass well on (usually I mix it in too loud). Hopefully I nailed it more or less here?
Overall I was aiming for a kind of 'juxtaposed Zappa' sound..
Thanks for any listens and/or feedback.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here — I’ve been working on some new stuff. Borrowed a friend’s 7-string, and additionally used my tele and a semi acoustic. Drums were programmed in EZDrummer, bass programmed in EZBass and strings using Logic’s studio strings.
Anyway, I appreciate any feedback on the overall mix, the arrangement or anything really!
Thanks in advance for the listen!
Cheers very much,
When I arrived
I found I'd gone nowhere
My baggage got lost somewhere on the way
It was a lousy day
Everything not going my way
And yet I had to smile
Because every day is beautiful, you know?
When you've got your peace of mind?
You really have arrived
I traveled so far
And wound up going nowhere
A smile on my face
After running in place
It's just another day
Every day’s really quite okay
