Here is our new record that we recorded and co-produced. It was mixed by a friend of ours and mastered by another friend. However, all of this was done in a few bedrooms. You can hear it here https://soundcloud.com/iusandwe

Thanks,

The storyline so far







And a couple remixes for the dj's





Self performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered on a $150 cans and checked against a stock system in a 15 year old Olds Alero. Stop the excuses. JUST DO IT.

Can't believe I just discovered this part of the forum! Anyway, here's a link to a totally self recorded mixed produced tune and video from my band, The Edward Furlongs. There are other tunes on our channel as well if you like the music. Video was shot on an iPhone and edited in iMovie.

Hey guys, my name is Sage Judd. I play piano and sax, and I make my own recordings and compositions. In my own time and for live purposes, most of the time I play jazz. But in my writing I try to compose unique songs that are primarily different fusions of genres I like, and I'll highlight how I got the different sounds as I go. (All songs mixed in Cubase and mastered with Ozone 6)

https://soundcloud.com/achlis/evil-is-bad-4-u

This is the most recent track I have produced. I was going for a very dark, experimental prog-rock vibe. It kind of sounds like if Zappa composed a boss-battle theme or something. I used a Yamaha P-105 digital piano, and a MicoKorg synthesizer for everything but the drums. I used different layered samples from various internet sources for the drums. The sounds are mostly piano, rhodes e. piano, various synths, or bit-crushed vibraphones. I used some different reversing and delay techniques. I think it turned out pretty well.

https://soundcloud.com/achlis/synth-test-2

This is my other most recent track. This one is a lot more jazz and hip-hop inspired, but it has a lot of rock sensibility. For the synth sound, I actually ran my MicroKorg through an amp simulator and a cab impulse within Cubase. This gave it a really cool distortion, and a tone that sounds halfway between an electric guitar and a synth. The same drum patch as the previous track was used. I'm pretty proud of this one. I also used some chopped up/distorted rhodes patches for the bassline and stutter effects.

https://soundcloud.com/achlis/sage-judd-catnip

I had a college friend help me with brass and I did saxophones on this track. We were going for a merging of a big-band jazz sound with prog rock. Somewhat Zappa-inspired. There were some reverse horns and various ambient techniques used on this track.

https://soundcloud.com/achlis/sage-judd-groof

And finally, I wrote this song while on a massive trip-hop kick. I was also listening to a lot of the Brecker brothers. My friend supplied trombone and trumpet, while I did sax and keys. In the solos later, we experimented with various harmonizers. The trumpet had an octave-up pitch shifted harmony, and then a delay. The sax at one point has a fifth-up pitch shifted harmony as well.

Well guys, let me know what you think! I love any and all feedback both compositionally and mix/mastering-wise. The last two are a little bit older, so the newer two are more likely to be tweaked if compelling feedback comes along

I don't have any feedback other than to say that stuff is really cool. Nice work on all the horns!

Check DeadFoxx on Spotify (in my sig)
All done in my living room.

All tracked using various cheap/midrange mics into a Presonus Firestudio into REAPER.

Lots of layering on this...
"In a Dream" has the most guitar tracks (61 total)
"Live Up" has the fewest (around 25)

Any questions? Im more than happy to answer.

Self-recorded indie folk

I love when people are able to do incredible things with limited equipment/budget. Like Sufjan's 'Michigan' album, or Bon Iver's first album. It's so easy to spend your life worrying about if you've got the right preamp or the right XLR cables. In the end, all that really matters is if you've got the right songs.

With that in mind, I wanted to create something. I recorded this 9-track album in my living room.

All the acoustic stuff is recorded with an AT2020 through a Saffire Pro 24.
Electric guitar, bass and keyboards are recorded DI into the Saffire.

I'd love to hear what you think.

Free Music Giveaway

Hi guys, so in light of it being my birthday today, I've decided to give one of my original compositions away. This one is up for free download, and was composed, mixed and mastered from my little home studio.

It's a cinematic ambient soundtrack. I hope you guys like it. Any feedback is more than welcome. Otherwise, enjoy

Do let me know if you wanna use it for any commercial purposes though!

My band. Recorded at my home studio. Hybrid in and out of the box. Primarily, in that regard, using a few hardward compressors.

Drums are a bit inconsistent. We were actually just recording for practice, but my quick setups work ot well enough imho and we decided to call it an EP.

Well be recording an album soon and Ill set up all the stuff.

This is a almost final mix which is the climax of our next album. It's a concept album where we (the band, who are also scientists) get caught in a strange field caused by a particle collider and afterward reality shifts and we have crazy psychedelic adventures.

All ITB, Waves SSL Channel strips on everything, with tape effects from Ferox.

Real instruments, to include Moog. Bass was DI, guitar was a Les Paul thru a Vox VT50 that was cranked very loud and miced with a SM59. Only the Mellotron was a VSTi.

Drums were two little Blondie mics in a Glyn Johns setup, some cheapo Cad on the snare, and a AKG D112 on the bass drum. The snare mic went almost unused in the mix.



I wasn't there when the voice was recorded, but probly a MXL LDC.

I play guitar, drums, and mellotron. The Platypus sings and plays moog. Mr. Klaus plays bass.

I mixed.
I like that drum sound on there! How many mics were on it? What was the overhead?

Thanks! I actually struggled a bit because I used Jack Dejohnette cymbals on this, and they have no sheen whatsoever. I think I boosted the highs as much as I could before the kit started to sound weird and left it at that.

The mics were AKG D112 on bass drum, I think possibly a Shure SM59 on top of the snare (just because it was handy), and a pair of Little Blondies in a Glyn Johns config around the drums. There's one LB overhead, and another barely visible above the ride cymbal, but it was actually off to the side of the floor tom.

Honestly, the LB are good, but really the key to the sound is a decent drummer and the Glyn Johns mic configuration with a bit of sweetening from the close mics. The key is to experiment and move the GJ mics out to get a roomier sound, or in for a drier sound. I've since started putting the snare mic under the drum sometimes, and when added sparingly it gives just a bit more clarity to the snare's crack.

Thanks again!

Okay, so this isn't quite finished, as it's missing the real drummer, my guitar tracks, and backing vocals, but a progress report of sorts. Bass is DI, guitars are amped, with an SM57 pointed at the edge of the speaker cap. Vocals were recorded with a CAD GXL2200 ($60 on Amazon in 2012). Drums you hear are EZDrummer.

The full album should be coming out at some point next year. I'll keep you guys posted if you want.

This one at least has backing vocals, but the guitars were recorded right off the pedalboard. I'm the dummy who forgot to reamp them...lol

Anyway, everything is almost the same setup as before, except the guitars. The group vocals were done with an SM57 up as high as the mic stand would allow.

Did one Yesterday and today

Here's one I finished today. I started this yesterday, too much time on my hands I guess. Recorded in my small bedroom. Guitars are from laptop running Line 6 UX1, out to my 99 dollar Acoustic brand amp into the mp3 line in, so not using the preamp, just the power amp. Speaker miced with a Nady SCM 1000, then to a Mackie 402 VLZ with the VLZ3 pres, (not Onyx), then in to my daw through another Line 6, this time a UX2. Vocals done with a MCL 9000 tube mic into the Mackie.
Quite a bit of Nebula console used, and reverb too from Nebula.
