  1. Compare your song to one you want yours to sound like, and EQ until they sound similar. They don't have to end up sounding close, but your song should sound better than when trying to mix it in isolation (for now).
  2. Source: Remix: https://soundcloud.com/grayburg/our5 It's been a long time, but I'm finally going to finish a song, and would like some feedback. Is the tampering of the verse's melody too noticeable? It sounds so much better with the backup singers hitting off beat, but the gaps created by doing so had to be filled somehow.. How's the mixing? Atm, the volume of the vocals need to be fixed in a few places. The snare might be fattened up as well. I'd also like to know what part of the writing seems too.. corny? to be acceptable.
  3. Just bought it, and trying it out. I'm noticing a slight delay between key presses on my keyboard and sound coming out. There's one midi cable from my keyboard's midi out to the 1x1's midi in. Then it's connected to the computer through the usb to usb b(?) cable. I let the computer install the drivers automatically, and didn't use supplied CD's or M-Audio's website's drivers. i5-3330, and it's a minimal project with a VST. I saw a video that said I needed two midi cables for less latency as well. I'm about to go out and buy another one, but why would that help with latency issues?
  4. Interesting.. I'll check it out again. I guess I'm still finding it hard to notice songs changing key.
  5. The progression follows some descending bass line, and instead of IV, it's a iv chord. It's the following chord that I'm wondering about (0:39). The bass plays the.. minor seventh of the key, the main melody plays the fifth. Could it be a bIII chord? The bass plays the fifth of the chord. The melody plays the third. The root is somewhere in the harmony. The root, being the minor third of the key, would lead to the major third, making it a p cool move. -- The next chord comes at 1:07. Instead of circle of fifth'ing back to the tonic like the previous section (~0:50), it goes from the ii > ? > V. During ?'s duration, there's prominent usage of the fourth, minor sixth and minor seventh. I don't have any guesses at what that chord's supposed to be. That minor sixth sets up the fifth in the next chord, though, right?
  6. orig: arrange: http://soundcloud.com/grayburg/ground-carrier-u-n-squadron Thanks, OCR, for reminding me of this lovely OST. I felt like listening to a better quality version of this song, so.. here it is. Hope you guys enjoy, too. ^^
  7. I like your writing style. Shootin' the Breeze and On Our Way were enjoyable. ^^
  8. original: arrange: http://soundcloud.com/grayburg/theme-of-layton This particular song had melodies perfect for what I felt like arranging. Hope you guys enjoy. Comments and criticisms, plis. ^^
  9. Good stuff. ^^ speaking of... i've been lovin my gm power kit. lol
  10. I'd describe it as having a ton of sustain as opposed to having the bulk of the volume at the very beginning. Here are some examples: And some regular snares: I know it's probably just COMPRESSION!! and a ton of reverb, but regular snare samples never turn into anything that.. meaty? There are a lot of good snare samples out there, but they don't seem to mold into this sound. Tips or samples?
  11. Yeah, SnappleMan worded it better than I could. IIRC, my computer created some pos 28mb sf2. I miss it ;_;
  12. Does anyone have a link to that program that creates a .sf2 from your computer's MIDI synth? I'm not sure how to search for it again.
  13. cool, thanks seems to make sense physically
  14. not pcb, no sanae => no comments pullin this outta my ass, but i have a feeling ocr isn't hipster enough to be too familiar with that whole touhou thing.
