  1. Hi guys, here's a track with minimal instrumentation for background music. The emotion I am going for is "tension/confrontation." Here are the references that I listened to: https://www.extrememusic.com/albums/2851?item=49376 I'd really appreciate some feedback on the mix as my left ear is no good, atm(swimmer's ear) - I'm practically deaf on one side. I can't tell if the levels are balanced or not, some notes may even be out of tune as I rely heavily on both my ears for that sort of thing. Any and all critique regarding the mix is welcome. Thank you in advance, Ken UPDATED VERSION: https://soundcloud.com/imken-2/bgm-latest-mixwip/s-Sl75p Older mix version: https://soundcloud.com/imken-2/bgm-wip/s-DhGl0
  2. Think

    Hello, My ears are tired...I'm tired... sick n tired... How does this sound? Mix feedback? Any thoughts welcome. https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/think06/s-8kF6n Words.... I have no idea what they mean. They probably mean something... Gold, hiding from the sun Let’s roll, we could be the ones Who do we think we are now Who do you think we are Who do we think we are now Who do you think we are I know the midnight ghost is coming by our salvation is rolling through the night Revelation coming on a silver line Destination… high Billowing clouds of animal scenes Carry the scent of heavenly green God is a mind but the mind is mine full of broken dreams God is a mind and it’s yours and mine but nothing is free I know the midnight ghost is coming by our salvation is rolling through the night Revelation coming on a silver line Destination… high Repeat stuff....
  3. I'll be with you - Mix ok?

    Hello, this isn't a new song, I recorded it a few months ago...but I never 'released' it for three reasons - 1. I wasn't sure I liked my different voice in it, 2. I wasn't sure about the chorus, and 3. The mix was too ...something... Anyway I've decided I'm fine with my voice, it suits the song....and I think the chorus is good because it's repeatedly come back to me since I shelved this.... and so I've remixed it all, changed some arrangement just a bit, and so on.... Please let me know if it sounds good? Or if not, any feedback please.... I won't post the words as I have no intention of changing them, they're too stuck in my head now. https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/ill-be-with-you05/s-xLHsD Words (since Suzy asked me to post them) - It’s raining where we’re walking Dark november morning Warmer if we talk a fire These echoes are not soothing Better if we're moving Walk until the golden rise We’ve been among the flowers Fallen from our towers Faded into shadow on the stone Now it’s looking clear we must be all alone out here We’ll find our way together you know Someday the tears will dry Fallen on the ashes of our gloom Somewhere it’s open wide Something in the air it’s coming soon Come on I want you to Come on I’ll be with you You know that nothing comes of sorrow Open up tomorrow to your tune Terrible the silence from the far forgotten town Coloured at the edges by the sun Cover up it’s cold and there’s a hailstorm coming down Find our way together if we run Somebody said Happiness is dead Shiver all your way into the tomb Time is a healer Time is a killer keep on walking to the blue Someday the tears will dry Fallen on the ashes of our gloom/tomb Somewhere it’s open wide Something in the air it’s coming soon Come on I want you to Come on I’ll be with you You know that nothing comes of sorrow Open up tomorrow to your tune
  4. what is this genre?

    Peace Can anyone offer an genre for my song? How would you tag this song? Also all honest reviews are welcome. Can I tag it world, psychedelic , experimental, world fusion ? Or anything else? Did you like it_?

  5. Hello, this is not a new song, but listening again recently I felt like my mix lacked some depth...I dunno, I just didn't feel great about it. Looking for your help...which do you prefer? OR if neither are quite good enough, any feedback please. It gets a bit full and I know the arrangement gets a bit messy with all the backing vocals etc but I like the psychedelic aspect, so this is more about the overall sound quality...please. I'm looking purely for mix/master feedback, I'm not going to redo any of the performance/recording now... I think I did the best I could in that respect. Thanks Dek Original - https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/saunton-sands UPDATED MIX - https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/sauntonsands12messingwithmix/s-w30G6
  6. Desert Trail

    dear songwriter family this is actually the first tune without featuring my favourite singer to work with - there are no vocals on this oneI made this track to learn ableton live. and it worked, i learned a lot my concern about this song is - is it too repetitive? too simple? working all alone on a tune is more challenging than if you collab with someone - so feedback is very welcome! https://soundcloud.com/cto-7/cto-desert-trail thanks in advance theo
  7. Saunton Sands

    Hello, I've not had much free time lately, too much crap going on. Then last week my uncle died, and weirdly a melody popped into my head...so I made something of it with memories of our childhood summer holidays at his house, at Saunton Sands. I think it's strangely almost happy for the most part... about as happy and bouncy as I've ever done anyway... I'm not planning on changing the song, it's still a case of 'do I like it, or not'. I'm not feeling done with the mix, and maybe not the arrangement. Any thoughts very welcome. Previous version - https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/sauntonsands/s-N2ECS Did a couple of edits for the latest version - https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/saunton-sands Words - Summer is a bungalow Not far from the sea Happy is the home Of Ron and Valerie The golden fields are blazing to Seasons In The Sun And the Band On The Run Saunton Sands here we come It seems a thousand miles away In the backseat of my mind But the backseat is fine It’s my brother’s and mine Saunton Sands here we come Saunton Sands here we come Rolling with the surf there is a Single blue light And the crickets play all night Blue Velvet songs From Sandy Lane To the bluest waves Feels like California sun But with skittles in the pub Saunton Sands here we come A spirit walk Along the path Chilling with A loving laugh The moonlit sky Deep velvet blue Here comes the night And dad’s there too Full of love
  8. Princess - Synthpop

    Here's a song I have been working on lately. Let me know what you think would make it better. Thanks! Verse 1: Back’s against the wall and you are Nothing but a spectator Can’t drown out that self doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Pre-chorus: They’re watching me, watching you, watch me They’re watching me, watching you, watch me Chorus: Bottle label princess in you Picked apart, in a sundress Verse 2: Building up your little castle As your bottle comes unraveled Walling out the spectators Can’t drown out that self-doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Pre-chorus: They’re watching me, watching you, watch me They’re watching me, watching you, watch me Chorus: Beer bottle label princess in you Picked apart, in a sundress Verse 3: Looking out at all that you aren’t Clutching at your only comfort Nothing but a spectator Watching all the spectators Can’t drown out that self-doubt, now Just relax and settle down, now Why did’ya come? Version 1 https://soundcloud.com/josephinethehorse/princess Edited version:

  10. Ho Hum

    Hey good people, Please have a listen and tell me what you think of the song/production/mix. Cheers, Geir
  11. So here's a track I made yesterday for the fun of it. I don't know much about the modern rap stuff so I watched a few youtube vids before making this track. Is there anything I should adjust in the mix/arrangement, like is the bass and kick loud enough? Thanks in advance, Ken https://soundcloud.com/imken-2/hiphop_track-masterattempt1/s-8PMeC
  12. Snakes and Biscuits

    My new tune is a guitar based instrumental. Please have a listen and tell me: 1. is it exciting enough througout the 3.50s or do you fall out? 2. Is it well ballanced - or do you find any sounds/instruments/parts annoying or... just wrong? Your oppinion means alot, wether you are an amateur or pro! Cheers, Geir
  13. Well, this is what I came up with this afternoon. The birds and slight road sounds aren't sound effects by the way, I just caught them from outside while recording the guitar and decided to keep them. Simple tune, I didn't have much time. Maybe I'll expand on it...not sure... Any feedback welcome. Added a new part and reduced the repeat on the end part. Does it work? Another update 10th March, now including some bass. https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/distant-cars03/s-IO7C4 UPDATE WITH SHREYASI https://soundcloud.com/monostone-1/distant-cars08lessverb/s-3fNeZ Words - Evenings cold On the stone With my feet In the road Counting hours Wanting more Counting hours It’s a dream for the few Close my eyes to the truth It won’t be long Until the night It won’t be long Feel it in the sound Of distant cars The empty roads cold Waiting for Golden lights Golden lights Arms open wide Hope through fear All those years behind the tears Let’s go home Graceful love Painful love In the evening glow It's getting late and the world is waiting Mistakes are made In the evening glow Evening's cold On the stone With my feet In the road It won't be long Until the night It won't be long
  14. I've went in and done some things with this. Different guitars, switched the verses, extended fade-out, etc… Any comments are welcome but I'm mainly looking at the mix. My goal is to get it to sound good enough for a free download. Gracias - Randy Donkey Kong Randy Drilingas, Just1L ©2016 I never did care for what you said. It didn't even make much sense. Trick all the dreamers. Make 'em believers. Then you let it go to your head. When you're high do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Did'ja read too much of everything? And turn your mind to dust. The rumors, the trollers, agenda promoters. You never know who to trust. When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got Mario on a string. He's gonna need to pass him. To beat the game. Sometimes the eyes that gaze from a stranger. Can't see past the nose. No need to fear the jeers from a neighbor They'll never make you feel at home. Could you be, Should you be, Do you even wanna be, Do you even wanna be loved? Then don't forget the words of a mother: "If you can't say anything nice, say nothing at all." When you're high, do people stare? And if so, do you even care? Donkey Kong's got another trick up his sleeve. Well... When you're high, let 'em stare. When you're low, let 'em stare. I don't care. Finally posting another tune. It's been a while. I've got multiple things I'm going to do/change to this but I figure it's at least at the listenable stage. Some things I know I'm going to do, some things I might do depending on feedback. The 2 musts lyrically are switching verse 1 and 2, and changing "win" to "beat" as noted in the copy. Also concerning the lyrics, I'm not really interested if you read through it and get it all. I don't consider this to be that kind of song. I'm going more old school with the vision of "if you hear it on the radio with no lyrics" what stands out and what feeling do you get from it. There is a reason for each of the lyrics though. For example each of the chorus "When you're high…" lines has a slightly different meaning each time, pertaining to the preceding lines. I plan to re-sing it all on a day when I'm feeling more mo-jo. And I also plan to re-do the lead riff guitar and bass. It's the first song I've struggled nailing the guitar parts for, at least my definition of nailing. Mixing thoughts are of course welcome as well. Enjoy if you can. Ideally, you'll want to turn it up.
  15. Hi all - I started this yesterday morning as I was going to do a hip hop track to post up for Aloproductions. It kind of took a different route and then I thought about the track @Steve Mueske posted recently with the short different parts woven together and decided to try something like that. It's not as technical as Steve's track, as I am so far away from that level, but felt there was something interesting in this. So, looking for some feedback on all aspects of it - I feel like it needs something else in there, something big near the end, but any suggestions and critique would be welcome. Cheers https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/glass-08032017-1621 Okay - I purchased Ozone 7 Elements today and wanted to do a quick comparison of the same song, but with one of the master presets. I tweaked it slightly and this is it - it was the Electronic preset. Let me know what you think of the difference and does it feel like a mastered track? I should add I lowered the stereo out volume by 5.5db prior to mastering and reduce the threshold in Ozone so that the Loudness wasn't ear splitting, which is why they both sound about the same level. There are other plugins on this track, which help to boost the volume of the overall track - this is more for the clarity and whether you can tell there is a difference. https://soundcloud.com/moodman-1/glass-master-09032017-1413

  17. Deep Subreddit

    Howdy! This song is the first song I ever wrote. The competition for this song is long over, and I'm just now getting around to remixing it for a possible EP release. I'd love any feedback about the mix and production. Of course I'd be happy to hear any feedback on anything about the song, but the mix and production is what I'm going to be focusing on. Since there are no deadlines associated with this song, I'll be updating this post with changes I make to the song based on the feedback I receive here, a technique I've seen other folks do to great effect. Thanks in advance for any feedback or advice! Verse 1 guess who’s staking you, ha ha only true read your profile page get deets learn the score, that’s what reddit’s for what’a ya posting these days? Chorus 1 i’m lurking in your deep sub-reddit and now i totally regret it all those things you said to those internet creeps all them lines you wrote about you and me Verse 2 can’t believe you told all those reddit trolls about the time that i cried or when you and me ate some LSD and i thought i had died Chorus 2 i’m lurking in your deep subreddit no reason for you to edit all those things you wrote that you thought were deep all that crap i read i cannot unread Bridge don’t know why i trolled you i just want to hold you this i do emote the deepest things you wrote that’s what hurt me most here have my downvote Verse 3 your words cut so deep you sow what i reap i’m the source of your woes click click i’m a dick, now i has a sick wish i’d left that tab closed Chorus 3 i’m lurking in your deep subreddit and now i totally regret it all those things you said to those internet creeps all them lines you wrote about you and me Chorus 4 i’m lurkin' in your deep subreddit no reason for you to edit all those things you wrote that you thought were deep all that crap i read i cannot unread
  18. Wilted Rose

    This is a collab we are finalizing. I know it's not my best lyric wise, but whats there is whats there from here on out. I was looking for some thought on the mix and anything else that may come to you that I might pass on to Christine. Christine Linge – Vocals Markus Lammarsch – Rhythm Guitar Paul Willis – Bass Raul R. – Drums Tim Dobson – Sax T.J. (Mandoman) – Mandolin Markus Lammarsch – Strings Markus Lammarsch – Mix/Mastering James Tanner – Lyric Wilted Rose (Vs) Sometimes in the night I hear you whisper to me; feel your warm breath on my neck the way it used to be, but when I awake, its back to my nightmare; that my dreams are only dreams; you’re no longer there (Ch) I can feel the thorn of the wilted rose, cutting deep to the core I’m still clinging on to the wilted rose and the thorn hurts even more It might be a poor metaphor, but it’s the one I’ve chose; I can’t stop clinging to a wilted rose (Vs) There will come a time, I won’t miss you like I do, but I’m not ready for closure yet, my grieving isn’t through (Ch) I can feel the thorn of the wilted rose, cutting deep to the core I’m still clinging on to the wilted rose and the thorn hurts even more It might be a poor metaphor, but it’s the one I’ve chose; I can’t stop clinging to a wilted rose Never letting go of our wilted rose 2016 © L.

  21. Dear Anyone. For starters, I've read the 10 rules and utterly agree with all of them, that's how come I'm posting this here. Please critique away and I'll do a new mix, from scratch, incorporating everyone's criticisms and hopefully it'll sound better! (It can't sound worse.) For seconds - I know these are not the best available sounds, but right now I'm hoping that won't matter too much. I've got better synths but I don't know where tweaking the sounds within the synths and using EQ/whatever on them in the mix starts and finishes (when should I be tweaking them in the VST and when should I be using more EQ/whatever!?! - that's rhetorical for now.) What I'd love to hear is all 4 freebie sounds sounding the best/clearest they can, yet with the pad in back, pan-pipe on top, ripply thingy just behind panpipe and choir not 'taking over' so much when it comes in. If I turn down the choir, the pad immediately eats it (ditto with adding reverb to it - it's just a soundfont with SF2 player release on it right now). If I keep the background ripplers (you'll hear them) less muffled, they immediately eat everything. If I keep them clearer but turned down, they jump out at you in bits and disappear in bits for no apparent reason - I'm not changing any levels but they do do that. (They don't now because I've EQ'd the bejeezus outta them but I don't want to do that unless I really have to!) Ditto with the sound that occasionally ripples into life panned right - if I keep the clarity bits in there, it eats the world. (I've got other VSTs but they've got probs., like they don't obey CC changes for some unknown reason and I've gotta do everything virtually cos I'm disabled, don't let it bother you.) So basically it's remix time from scratch. Basically, say whatever you like and I'll do it all and if it comes out better I'll thank you profusely, if it don't then I'll be back asking what I've done wrong again. I've honestly heard sounds as bad as mine in easy-listening music on YouTube, but they all sound a lot clearer yet in the right places in the mix. I'd be ecstatic to be able to achieve that for starters. So go ahead, have a ball, say whatever you like, it's an object we're trying to improve, not 'Muy Bay-bee, Don't Hurt it's Wickle Feelings!!' I've been trying to get the hang of mixing for years, I've got several albums ready to hit the Internet when I can do it (can't afford to pay anyone else) so vent away. When you can't vent any more, I'll know I've got it right. And hopefully be able to use what I've learned on the next track. Yours respectfully Chris. Please_help_me_sound_better_MP3.mp3
  22. Iron Bridge

    Hello all, Been working on this song now for the last few weeks. Still a work in progress, will need to record a proper intro, middle part, and make an outtro. Would love to hear your thoughts on both the song, lyrics and mix! (Private link) Iron Bridge Take it easy, put your anchor down Or these smiles they won't last for long Now look around you darling take your time Let your faith grow thick and strong So listen now we’ll build something beautiful Strong enough for them winter storms I can’t tell but well ain’t you been waiting To find a love that’ll keep you warm When the morning shines so bright Ending the darkness and the night The sun will rise over the ridge As we walk upon this iron bridge I can’t see beyond these walls you built around you And I ain’t got the strength to tear them down We’ll find our way out of this darkness that I feel And what we got will rise from the ground When the morning shines so bright Ending the darkness and the night The sun will rise over the ridge As we walk upon this iron bridge
