Agreed w/the others, really well done. I shudder to think of trying something that complex myself. If you want a nit-pick, I think the horns could be a touch more prominent and overall it could have a little more high end, but again those are really nit-picks.

Greetings.

First post here, seems like a great forum. Already learning from this forum!

The song was done on Cubase 8 using EZDrummer for drums. I play the music and my buddy sings. I'm a neophyte doing the recording and am still not sure on the vocal levels. Still trying to get a better drum sound from EZDrummer, but it's getting there.

Thanks for listening and please provide your thoughts.

Ken

Nice song and the verses sounded beautiful! But I did not like the swoshing drum sound that came in during the choruses. With something else to mark "here is the chorus" it would have been even nicer

Good overall IMO, my only thoughts offhand are I think the vocals should be a little less prominent (maybe just a question of turning down the volume a hair) and the rest just seemed to need a little more "presence" IMO. Hard to explain...and maybe easing off the vocals will give that by default. Also it all seemed a little too huddled in the middle (I'm tempted to say "muddy" but not sure that's really it); IMO maybe try some panning?

I seem to say this a lot so take that into account (i.e. probably best to disregard lol), but again I feel just a little too much mid-range and would've liked it a little brighter. Anyone else feel similar? It's minor though and IMO well done on the whole.

Ah, but the midrange: isn't that where all the magic happens! ?

Lyrics in Swedish but it's inspired by this if anyone wants to know: Mother Teresa: " Do It Anyway" (The Prayer Foundation).
Nice tight and full bottom, very captivating panning decisions, very cool breathy lead vocals and some very tasty electric guitars.

very nice mix.

Hey fellow enthusiasts I would be very happy to hear your comments on some alt rocks songs I have written/performed & programmed/produced in my bedroom "studio" (lyrics in Finnish, hopefully that does not stop you from listening )





A couple of a bit older "finished" demos:





Thank you in advance for any comments. Please note that I am well aware that the production quality of these songs is not at all identical. I am in the process of learning the art and definitely still looking for the "right" way to do this...

Latest track, a bit sentimental. It's got strings, it's got mellotron, it's got cello and big fat choirs. :-)

I have no idea what "Genelec monitoring" is but agree that this was really well produced. Can't think of anything offhand I would change.

Haha. Just means I bought new monitor speakers. Really changes how you perceive the music. But thanks!
