Sounds good. I like it. I would use a breath control and de-essing plugin to work on (remove or significantly reduce) the volume of the breaths between phrases and some of the esss sounds.

For me they became a distraction from the otherwise good song.

Some of the breath sounds add to a sense of desperation and drama to the performance - which is good - so I would be strategic about where and how much I keep. So my advise would be to not remove all the breath sounds. Keep the ones (although at a lower volume) were they add drama to the story of the song.

Nice track. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds really good to me.....for my tastes there's a bit much echo/reverb (or maybe it's just the type you used?), would like to hear this w/that changed or toned down some, but again that's just me. The overall sound is

A hybrid track about space...or something like that.

I wrote this last summer, around 3-4am...had just gotten back from work. Then I wrote a bunch of another tracks, which explains why I finished this one six months later. All feedback is welcome and leave a link to your track as well, if you want.

YouTube (I made fancy visuals to compensate for the average music)

Well done IMO. I think maybe this one also a bit heavy on the reverb, causing a slight "boxy" feel, might try toning it down a little, and/or cranking the higher end in places, e.g. the strings. Speaking of which maybe the strings could be a bit louder to me...they give the track a lot of its "power" IMO. But these are nit-picks, IMO this would be a great soundtrack tune for some suspense flick!

Thanks Bill! Do you mean that the overall track has too much reverb or just certain instruments? I actually struggled with the string levels a bit, ended up with lower levels than usual. Then again, especially at the end, there are plenty of things going on so I wanted to give other instruments some space as well...

Fall of Twentyseven - Kiss the Stone

Hey guys, I just posted my latest track on Soundcloud and I am a actually somewhat hyped about this one! I am not sure that this is 100% ready, but I know I want to give it a chance to be heard at this point.

This song is called "Kiss the Stone". It is a sad "lovemetal" song that tells a story of a man who has lost his loved one to an untimely death. The lyrics can be found on Soundcloud's track description, if you are interested.

This time I have really paid a lot of attention to the lead vocal and I really believe this song represents the best work from me so far. I really hope to hear your opinions on this one. I got some new plugins running on this track as well:



As always, any comments are truly appreciated!

Hi Guys

Here are two versions of the same track. The opening (till the first chorus) is the part that is different. The first link has a slow build at the top and the second is straight in with the beat.

Which works best to you? Still needs final mix and mastering.

There is some Logic version of "auto tune" that I added as an effect, but it is still quite subtle so I remove it or try to make it more obvious, or just leave it?

Thanks for listening.

I kind of like the subtle slow build. Good groove going here. I like the vocals a lot just as they are.

...and while I'm here...here's an odd tune that I just finished as a challenge to write an over the top positive song. I can't say that I quite pulled it off.

I started with the title and worked from there.

I really like this song.

The arrangement and mix is very nice and warm, like a comfort blanket! The harmonica especially sounds fantastic.

I've updated both versions. The "extended club edit" now has a middle section. The "radio edit" has a small 1 bar break in the middle now as well. Both versions have less tuning (almost removed) and the bass now has more sub during the chorus.

I think this is going in the right direction with your vocals!
Really having to reach deep down inside is important for this kind of music and it sounds like you're trying that now. It's tough to do it in a controlled studio setting, I get it. It's about drowning yourself out just enough to make you push a little harder. Once you get the hang of it though, it isn't as tough to conjure up.
