  1. ImKen: You are very kind. Thank you! Steve
  2. Matthew: Thank you so much for listening and commenting. This is old, old, old. It's kind of amusing to look back this far. It's a bit embarrassing, but there are some interesting things in this. You have always been so kind to me. I appreciate it. Altres: The mix is actually an ancient mix I found on a hard-drive I was looking at. I don't have the original project file because it was created in Reason 2.5 on Windows 98. I lost a ton of project stuff during various early hard-drive failures. So, unfortunately, I can't tweak the mix. I mastered this right before posting. It doesn't appear on any of my releases. I mostly posted it for yucks. I do appreciate the good words.
  3. Richard, I've used it in both mixing and mastering situations. Most of the time I would use it on a group or submix (like glue). Here I meant the lead vocal (or lead vocal chain). Would probably try it right before the limiter, if there is one, or last in the insert if there isn't.
  4. Oh, my god, this is so beautiful! You are very original and wonderful and [insert superlative here]. Tone Boosters makes a wonderful inexpensive tape saturation plugin that might at the final touch to this. I think just a touch of old 30 ips tape with a little saturation and a slight boost would make the main vocal pop. It's pretty amazing as is. Just a thought. Anyway, here's a link. It's like $20 or so. One of my favorite tape / saturation plugins. http://www.toneboosters.com/tb-reelbus/ Edit: I'm not affiliated with TB in any way. I just buy a lot of plugins I can't afford.
  5. Matthew, I really dig this tune. The filtering on the drum loop is cool. Love the flute like synths, the contrast. A very interesting, moving, beautiful piece. I think the beginning needs some work. I like the idea, but I think you give away the power of the panning and delay too early. Maybe shorten, use a long filter, pull back on the feedback of the panning delay. I don't know. It's your track, so you'll do what is best. Once it kicks in, I'm right there in the pocket with you. I just think more surprise in the sound design department will really seal the deal on this. Enjoyed!
  6. Ha! So I was looking through files on an ancient hard drive and found this gem. It's called "Here There Be Ghosts," and it was the first song I ever sequenced. I used Reason 2.5 on an old Windows 98 box. I can't do anything with the mix (not that it's worthy of tweaking), but I did put it through some rudimentary mastering. Thought you might get a kick out of it. In general, it's pretty lame, but it did have some interesting ideas...
  7. Thank you Rudi and Just1L!
  8. Hi, I have a poem in the June edition of The American Poetry Journal. https://www.apjpoetry.org/nothing-so-austere-mueske Steve
  9. Cool. Will do! Edit: Is the UK version different? I saw the link you posted, but I can't find a Songstuff board on the "regular" pinterest (the one Here: https://www.pinterest.com/ )
  10. My track "Dancing Down the Rabbit Hole" will appear on a benefit compilation to raise money for Planned Parenthood. The release is called Friends for Equality, Vol. 2, and it is available for pre-order. It will be released on May 30. https://friendsforequality.bandcamp.com/album/friends-for-equality-volume-2
  11. Ha! Thank you very much for reading and commenting, Steve! Yeah, for many rock and singer / songwriter musicians this probably wouldn't be useful (unless you want to do sound design work for transitions, etc.). For electronic musicians, avant garde artists, sound designers, soundtrack scorers, etc., this is an amazing plug-in. You bring up a really good point, one that I haven't that of, and that's addressing or mentioning the audience for a given tool. Will definitely consider that in the future!
  12. Not sure if this has been announced yet, but my review of Loomer's Sequent VST plugin is now live on Songstuff. Check it out! http://www.songstuff.com/product-reviews/loomer-sequent-review/
  13. All good ideas. At the highest level, right now, the $10 per month category, I am offering up to three original poems or one unique song creation. It would be hard for me to justify charging more for individual items. If anything, I should be throwing them in. I love your ideas, though, about personalizing some of the day-to-day stuff, and will probable incorporate some of them into the $5 level. Right now, I am working on a professional-level layout of a PDF of me earlier out-of-print poetry books for the $2 level and up. Up to 4 patrons! I also plan on dramatically increasing my software articles for Songstuff, with the first one, a Sequent review, on your doorstep.
  14. Oh, my God, John! You literally just brought me to tears! Thank you, thank you! Please also let me know if you have ideas for things you'd like to see, ways I can provide value to the people who are showing faith in me.
  15. Hey, I have my first two patrons!
