    Hi,

    I imagine this have been done before: "I recorded a song and I want to know your opinions". :ninja:

    I'm kinda shy... so let me know your thoughts.

    Opinion: Music-related- belongs in *misc* or *recordings*

    I'd say it was done well, depending on what you wanted to achieve. It's easy to listen to, it was actually pretty nice to hear while I was typing up my paper. That being said though, for some dedicated listening I think it would need a bit more to it, maybe an extra melody, or a few extra chords/notes. Good work though, I did like it.

    Well, what I wanted was the something "minimal" not in the White Stripes sense but more in the Neu style.

    just bass and drum, maybe I'll try to add a synth...

    Make a better quality recording. The drums sound clipped, unless that's what you were going for in which clip them a little less.

    Not quite my cup of tea ,, but,,, i thought it was cool,, kinda hypnotic,, definately got down the minimalost vibe,, but ya should have something melodic around it ,, vocal ,, synth,, guitar,, hit a gong a couple a times in odd places,, but it didnt make me wanna puke,, cant say that to all stuff ive heard,, work on it a bit more.

    Despite being very heavily compressed, it sounds to me like it's still clipping. You're working too close to the Red Zone on the meters and with a digital recording that's not a good idea, generally speaking

    Drums are a bit too low in the mix for my taste and also severely lacking in dynamics. The cymbals are especially lifeless - heavily compressed and lacking in high frequency content

    No comment on the music itself :ninja:

    Bottom Line: Read This then go back and remix if possible. If the individual tracks are already compressed that much, then start over from scratch. Remember: dynamics are your friend

    Thanks, I'll try that!

    I like the vintage/compressed sound... maybe I tried too hard!

    I don't know poop about recording music in a technical sense, but if I did, I'd probably say something similar to this. :)

    This is kinda what I thought, just NEVER could have put it into words.

    It does have a bit of a hypnotic type vibe going for it.

    End result;; I like it, but it could be better mixed and sound pretty bad acc.
    I wanted to FEEL the drums and they just kinda blend in a bit too much.

    Well, that makes at least 2 of us.

    My inexperience thinks; why couldn't you just record it again with the drums levels a bit higher while keeping the rest a level or two lower than before.
    Wouldn't that give the drums a bit more umph?

    As is obvious, I haven't got a clue wth I'm talking about.


    BUT-----I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night!! :D
