  1. All right! I haven't given up on this track, I just had a lot of life happen all at once. A solder point coming undone on my guitar, and then my bass strings were just dead and couldn't afford new ones for a bit, then I started a new job and am now working 2 part time jobs and today is literally my first day off in 3 weeks. Guitar fixed, new strings all around, time to get to work! So to address some of the points you guys made, I'm making some pretty significant changes that basically means I'll be rerecording the whole track. I just finished rerecording the bass guitar. 1. RE: it soundin
  2. Sorry for the late reply, life suddenly got very busy because I finally got a job offer after 3 months of searching. Friday night, should have some time to finally work on it again. I do play to a metronome, though I had originally tried playing just to the drums after I finished them. I think the 3rd version was a mix of playing to drums and playing to drums + metronome. I've been thinking of how to tweak the arrangement itself. I know one thing I want to do is just shorten the part with the sustained chords, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the parts prior. Part of the emotion
  3. Thank you for the feedback fellow Renoiser! I know what you mean, I really liked the other drum kit, and I want to use it for something, but after trying both I really think the metal kit just works better. I think the kick in the rock kit sounds a little too abrasive when used for metal double kicks. I was considering trimming some of the fat so to speak on the arrangement, but was going to see what people said first. Some of the sections might feel like I'm killing my children to trim down but an easy one is the part with the sustained chords. I'll see about tightening it up a bit more.
  4. New version for feedback: https://www.dropbox.com/s/brctvu4p8di9s32/notalone_3.mp3 Ok so: 1. I rerecorded a ton of parts. I found a bass part that had a note slightly off so I rerecorded it, I found another part I thought sounded too boomy so I rerecorded it just to make it sound tighter. Almost all the rhythm guitar got rerecorded. All the lead did get rerecorded. 2. Different drums. I think these drums fit metal better. Considering changing out the crashes though. Opinions on the 2 different drums? 3. I embellished some of the outro lead that I thought sounded a little too repetitive a
  5. Thank you both for the feedback. I definitely have some timing tightness issues. Someone on another forum even suggested I might have some rewire latency issues, since I programmed the drums in rewired Renoise, but I really think it was just my playing. I'm going to rerecord large chunks of the rhythm guitar, and probably all of the lead. You're right about the lead, there is way too much reverb on it, and I might not even need any at all. As for the drums, I'll bring them down a bit, and I'm also considering using a different set of samples that are more suited to metal. I really wanted t
  6. Ok, I turned it way down until I could barely hear it. Using your method I brought the kick down a bit, it ended up being a 5.5 db cut. I also brought the gain up on the snare just a tiny bit, and then I also cut a notch in the bass at 200hz to give the snare a little more room. I brought the lead up a bit. I also boosted the highs a little bit on the guitars. Some other minor tweaks here and there also. New version for critique: https://www.dropbox.com/s/civ14t8u2u9touz/notalone_2.mp3
  7. Thank you very much for the feedback, I will make some adjustments. I didn't realize my kick seemed that loud, I can certainly bring it down a bit.
  8. Hello, I have a track that I would like some feedback on. Any suggestions and criticism welcome. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g57mlun3da9k3im/notalone.mp3 edit: new version https://www.dropbox.com/s/civ14t8u2u9touz/notalone_2.mp3 edit: new new version https://www.dropbox.com/s/brctvu4p8di9s32/notalone_3.mp3

  10. This track is so good, I would love to hear a remix of it.
  11. First time I listened to this album, I went on an 8 win streak in league of legends.
  12. I've listened to the whole several times now but it's realllly hard to listen to the whole thing because every time I get to The Nightmare Oath I keep clicking back at the end of it to hear it again. "Just one more time, then I'll continue."
  13. Listening to this album is like being buried alive in kittens.
  14. Have to wait all day to get home to work now. But now I'll have something to do all my Java homework to.
  15. "maybe after I get out of the shower" hope springs eternal
