  1. Please listen - new song - virtual top 10 hit! i am terribly proud of this new song i've written and recorded. it's called "pop child" and it has the sixty-pop-rock-vibe i aimed for. i think if a well known UK would release it as a single, it would be a top 10 hit! i consider the mix finished although i tried not to touch to much and let it almost as i recorded. afterall its a demo and it has not to be perfect, but lemme know what you think about the recording quality and the song itself! every comment welcome! http://s42.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=...1Q2YCXAH4XLZVM4 I pretty much agree with all of boosh's comments. The vocals definitely need to be more clear. I had a hard time understanding anything. The performance had some rough spots too. However, I did like the song. My only suggestion would be to maybe make it a little shorter. There didn't seem to be enough new ideas in the song to hold my interest for almost 4 minutes.
  2. I noticed that most instruments seem to come from the same direction except for the Marimba? and the drums... The drums come from both sides and the marimba - is it a marima? is panned left but a weird left,.. it shifts from far left to let's say between missle and left.,... this would be no problem if the rest of the instruments are spaced as well( like in my opinion they should be) but now it sounds a bit weird. I'm glad you liked it. I wish I could have made those samples myself. They are from the EWQLSO Gold Edition. I agree about the panning being off (I'm assuming this is what you meant by spacing), but unfortunately that is how the samples were recorded (everything was recorded in stereo with each instrument in its appropriate place in an orchestra). What I will probably do is convert them all to mono and pan them as I see fit. Now that I think about it, would it work to just pan the stereo samples or would that cause something weird? By the way, the percussion part was a xylophone. Thanks for the suggestions.
  3. I just started using an orchestral sample library and wanted some opinions on a short little demo I did to get myself familiar with it. http://www.cs.ucr.edu/~gstitt/fullorchestra.mp3 I basically just used a simple theme and then tried out different orchestrations. I've never had to automate midi volume so much until I started using this library. It really takes a lot of work to sound close to realistic. I was curious to hear how the mix sounds on everyone else's speakers. I think the piano could probably use a little more reverb to help push it back a little. Feel free to comment on the mix, the music, or whatever. Thanks
  4. I'm looking for some feedback on my band's first work. The vocals will be recorded this week and the drums need some adjustment but further it's a finished product. SPAM: so if you like funky disco,.... download here : funkadisco Damn, that sounds good. Unforunately, I can't even come up with a single suggestion. Everything in the mix is perfectly clear on my monitors. I look forward to hearing it with the vocals.
  5. every comment welcome! http://s42.yousendit.com/d.aspx?id=...1Q2YCXAH4XLZVM4 I'm getting a broken link.
  6. www.purevolume.com/vitaeterna song called every lady loves a sure bet. I tracked the band, mixed and "mastered" them, all done by a 15 year old (me). Advice please, i already know vocals need to be turned up, toms repanned, and cymbals im going to run the sonic maximizer on. The vocals need some work (which you already noticed). I'm not a big fan of the autopan thing you have going on with the guitar in the beginning, but that is completely subjective. I would defintely cut down the length of the intro. I am not one of these "The intro has to be less than 30 seconds" type of people, but the intro just didn't hold my interest well enough for it to be over a minute. Considering your age, you are doing a great job. Keep it up.
