    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.

    A few more notes would be nice.

    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
