Good songwriting. Alotta mixing problems, and vocals would be good aswell.
About the mixing: too much low end and not enough really high end. you can easily EQ that, very easy fix
Alotta room to improve here. For example: you should really add someone who'd name starts with a J, that might help
Not at all
Newgrounds has a system that works.
also- i find your music quite commonplace.
Songwriting is ameature and unenjoyable.
Patch choices are overwhelming and fatigue the ears.
Some advice: Drums in general sound too close, dont match the atmosphere.
Guitar sound is a bit thin and fuzzy, but it could work with more of a tight, maybe palmuting, sound.
Overall, cool song, just trying to help you out for next time. I use sonar aswell!
I use Cubase now.
Also if by close you mean dry, then that's what I was going for.
Some day, I would love to do a collab with you. Definately one of the masters of metal on newgrounds. I was thinking about putting together a collab group for the 'best' metal artists on newgrounds, kinda master societey.
Do I detect some devin townsend influence? maybe? Or maybe just stevevai? the guitars are very nice, and i like this mix alot, no critiscism to be had, sorry!
thx....the only influence for this song was dragon ball z!
Animals as leaders anyone? Awesome job man!
<3's and such, my good sir.
I much prefer the guitar sound on this one, but i can hear the bass more. The only thing it could use are some real drums and vocals, but awesome job!!
Thats my guitar tone I've been perfecting for years, and its quad-tracked to get extra thickness, which means you gotta play 2 perfectly identical tracks on each side, hard work haha. But reald drums would take away from the sound, cuz its hard to play that perfectly and engineering real drums is a lot harder, to get the tones you want. But vocals would be cool, glad you liked it man!
I'd like to say overall, nice job!
I understand you did this in the studio? There are a few ways you could improve your sound, which sounds atm a bit like metal from the 80's, mixing wise. The guitars are very very thin, something you might hear in early blackmetal, but it is not pleasent to listen to. Maybe a bit more low end on the guitars, just something to fix the fizzyness.
Also, the vocals have a few problems, a few points where the singer is a bit too close to the mic and you hear the phss sound because of it. Also, the vocals should be EQ'd a bit to fit the mix a little bit better, they seem a bit out-of-place.
I can tell by the amount of reverb on the drums that you were going for something of that sound, and you did a good job! but theres always room to improve
Yes, it was in a studio, but it's not exactly professional grade. It's more of a b-line deal. But I can actually tell you why most of what you've pointed out exist. The big problem with the guitar is that I'm playing through a Peavey 5150 Tube amp. We have to mic it at low volume and the tubes just can't get up the the clarity we'd like. Any suggestions to get around that? Cause it's all I've got. lol. As for mic work it's a first time. So thanks for the advice on that.
With mixing it's a real out of band problem. The guy who does our recording does our mixing as well and isn't so spectacular. The emphases on the drums and sound in the mix also comes from the fact that our mixer is a drummer, and the fact that we use electric drums. We've tried working with it but there's been no luck. Maybe you know someone who could help with post recording mixing? But much thanks for the advice. Sorry if I seem rather combative. I just like to help people to get advise I need to fix problems I know of. lol
This song is lacking ALOT of potential power. One, Im not sure if you added bass to it, because if you did, its barely audiable. Two, the guitars are a little too much on the highs, which wouldnt be a problem if you had a strong bass covering lows and mids both, aside from that, it would sound really nice. good work
note to you, my friend, it's only one guitar playing multiple tracks, this isn't a song from a band or anything. a solo project fromm my friend that I added a drum track to.
thanks for the feedback though, but yea, no bass, because my fried doesnt play a bass xD
currently, my friend has much better sound equipment than what was used here, btw. i'm working on a Stricken cover with him ;D
