  1. I'm guessing the setting on your amp has a noise gate to prevent feedback. Any amp should feedback at a high volume. Jimi Hendrix had his amps usually set very high and turned down the volume knob of his guitar to get the clean sound and just turning the volume knob of the guitar back up to get more distortion and feedback.
  2. I love the intro and begining but as before said you need to create some sort of climax.
  3. I happen to have two moderatly cheap digital stomp boxes. A DigiTech DigiVerb, that has a reverse reverb and works pretty good live, check out the sample: http://www.digitech.com/products/xseriesflash/DigiVerb.html The demo has a 50% mix or so, a 100% mix will result in the reverse reverb starting when you start strumming so having your actual chord or note land on a 1 with 100% mix is very hard as you need to start playing beforehand. I also have a Boss DD-6 a digital delay that has reverse delay. Again with 100% mix the sound will useually come after you play. This effect does on the other hand chop up your playing into bits as you spoke of. It has a tap tempo so you can semi-sync your playing but it's mostly just good for a lush feel. http://www.bosscorp.co.jp/demos/en/DD-6_sound/demo.html nr. 2 is reverse delay. As you can hear sometimes the reverse starts at the end of your last note that results in choppy sound.
  4. http://www.mp3towav.org/TS-AudioToMIDI/ I downloaded this and raped a few songs. The polyphony was better then I thought but the monophony was a waste. If you had a monophonic sound you could have processed it through the polyphony anyway. The sound through had lag, and you have to buy it to save the midi sounds so I guess it's only fun for 5 minutes, unless you want to burn cash on this product, well 34.99 isn' much for a program but I'd rather rent video and buy pizza or something.
  5. I belive there are some programs that can convert one notes into midi and/or even simple polyphony but I think they're all pretty primative and unreliable. I haven't tried any.
  6. I thought you were referring to Reverse delay as Dry signal with delay signal reversed and trailing after the dry signal. That's how normal "reverse delays" work (if there is anything normal about them ) but I guess you where talking about an ascending delay.
  7. Do you have any idea how Reaktor or SynthEdit compare to Max? (reguarding ease of use as well as functionality)
  8. Very interesting approach, It sounds kind of repetative despite you haveing lots of differant variations. I think you should try doing fugue type bits where the first part is repeated by a voice lower on the keyboard while the melody expands in the leading voice, this can extend parts and gives other parts more dramatic differances. In case you have never heard a fugue, here is and example. Listen to how the second voice picks up the same melody as the first voice had. Just a suggestion It's great mix as it is though, no biggy.
  9. It sure is. The best example I can think of off the top of my head is Sepultura's "Slaves of Pain". Reverse-delayed vocals are awesome. -steve Reverse delay is done differantly though. If you'd apply the same technic of reverse reverb with a delay you'd get an ascending delay. (wich is cool none the less). Anyone know how to do a reverse delay without haveing a reverse delay software? Reverse Delay Software??? ????????? Don't sound so shocked: http://www.digifreq.com/digifreq/download.asp?ID=55 Sounds beautiful on piano: http://www.gvst.co.uk/GRevDly01.mp3
  10. http://www.izotope.com/products/audio/trash/more_presets.html You can download a preset there called lithium wich is based of a Big Muff Kurt Cobain used. I haven't tried it but it also has lots of differant drives. But if you like the Big Muff you should just go and buy it, it's cheap, they vary between units, noone sounds the same. I've tried both amrican and a few russian reissues and the old green one. I prefer the russians but they're all pretty good, just try before you buy to make sure it's the big muff you think it is.

  12. Has anyone used this program to some extent? http://www.cycling74.com/products/maxmsp http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max/MSP
  13. Sounds good! You should keep working on it. I think the base drum in the last part is clipping. As the song grows the base drum seems to add more and more mud to destroy the sound, you might also want to consider lowering the percussions slightly giving the instruments more focus and the song more power. Very nice choice of a song to remix.
  14. Regarding music theory, if you ever want to know anything regarding music vs. science, wikipedia has well written articles on most musicology related topics.
