    Little project I've been working on. I've heard good things about this community and would love to see what you guys think of my work. I love it when people hear issues in my mix that I didn't notice. It's educates me and helps me grow as an engineer. Keep in mind that this song is a prelude of sorts to a concept EP that I'm working on. Thanks for looking!

    Sounds pretty good but I'm hearing occasional distortion in the left channel? Other than that, everything sounds well balanced.

    I like it! I would add an Eventide Blackhole effect to this.

    I'll do an example with this effect added. Maybe a bit too much added but it will give you the idea. I also left headroom.

    Check it out.

    Is there supposed to be a link there? I'm on my phone so forgive me if I'm not seeing something.

    Lol it's definitely not everyone's cup of tea. I take a lot of influence from industrial/shoegazing stuff. I'm used to polarized feedback.

    I knew you meant that too, Kurt

    Generally speaking

    Check out the increasing percentage of posts on GS today, half are electronic music scene. Big change from the past there.

    I don't see it remaining in pro audio much longer though. There is no money in it. $5 an hour scab art wages and growing.

    The more that scene grows, the rarer we are. The less competition the better.

    Happy, did you get a chance before I deleted the track to hear what the Blackhole sounds like?

    I think it's a perfect effect for this style. I use the hardware base processor but they have a plugin that sounds pretty close.
