    Giving up so quickly? Hey, none of the other 1000+ entries put any effort in, did they? Cheer up, chum! Let’s learn what we can and make the best we can make! That’s what we should be proud of! Pull your head out of the sand and keep on cracking away, buddy—that’s what being human is all about! Be a good sport and hopefully we’ll see you at the n…[Read more]

    • I don’t think it’s abt giving up, I really enjoyed the remixing, learned stuff, but looking at the winners, whatever the judging process was, this competition is not for me! I really like Warren & CLO has an amazing voice. But not for me again!

    That’s perplexing, then! To me, it sounded like that may have been an issue, here.

    I don’t own pro monitors/speakers (maybe one day) however from personal experience I’d start with a decent set of headphones (my Beyerdynamics 80 ohm DT770s are certainly not perfect, but I’m happy with them) and use the Sonarworks plugin that I mentioned. Most things that I’ve mixed using that combination sound slightly different, but perfectly…[Read more]

    There’s a plugin that I use by Sonarworks called Reference 4—now called ID Reference, I think—that applies a flattening curve to the frequencies of a large number of popular headphones so that when it’s applied to your master bus you can hear it in a neutral, ‘uncoloured’ way. It’s remarkable to realise how much colouration your headphones app…[Read more]

    • Thanks for the tipp, i looked into it and will give it a trial.

      I just found a way to access all my output devices through my DAW, so maybe i will upload a re-remix (out of competition, of course). But it astonishes me to realise how different monitor/headphones (which sound similar enough) on one hand, and my regular speakers on the other hand…[Read more]

    Piano (keys), acoustic guitar, electric bass, drums, electric funk guitar with jazz chords and a funky disco beat—what’s not to like? I agree with Ian’s comments above, though—I’d like to hear your final mix. This sounded quite lo-res and artifacty. Was it exported in mp3 at 64 kbps or some other lower bit rate? All the best! :o)

  • ElRobboz posted a new activity comment 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    I can’t hold anything against someone who uses a tuba in their instrument arsenal. ;o)

    Thanks SOo much, CLO! :o)

  • ElRobboz posted a new activity comment 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    I doubt whether it was intentional, but the hollow stick (whatever that instrument is called) beats sounded like a creaky door, rather than a slidey one ;o)! A really dynamic and interesting array of acoustic and electric instruments in a unique and epic-sounding arrangement. Nice work, Bobby! All the best! :o)

    • I hadn’t even thought about the wood block as a connection to creaky door. That’s awesome. It’s just an element of ancient japanese folk music that I love and wanted to add. But I’m so glad you enjoyed what you heard. That means a great deal to me. Thank you so very much.

    I hear resonances of Boney M here, Dwalia! This is a funky disco take with some unique chord progression reworks. Nice work! All the best! :o)

    You’ve a keen ear, Lupino—you weren’t counting, however, on the fact that I love polyrhythms even ‘more’ than the next guy…;oP . You’re absolutely right, though! Whilst I built the instruments around the vocals using a swing rhythm, I ran out of time to try and manipulate the stem tracks to conform to a swing groove. Perhaps I’ll have more tim…[Read more]

    This is really very good, Polk! Love the creativity, the playfulness and the skill you exhibit, here! Loving it! All the best! :o)

  • ElRobboz posted a new activity comment 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    Are you Ian or Joanan…or are you CLO? Either way, it sounds like you really did enjoy yourself here! Keep up the fun stuff! BTW, I presume the ‘Victoria Line’ was referring to the sliding doors of a train where you two met and sang away? All the best! :o)

    • Hey my friend, I am both Ian & Joanan (it’s a state secret) and yes, I imagined I held the tube train door for Clo …. not sure how she got I was an animal so quickly….??
