Newbie (1/14)

  1. Happy B-day Blur

  2. Thanks! Seriously, all the help and what not was great. I'd add more to it (probably some no guitar parts or something), but the guitars were recorded over a year ago, and I doubt I'd be able to get the sound exactly right again for making transitions and whatnot to the newer sections.
  3. Yeah maybe these are a bit on the bassy side, since it sounds just right to me. I'm using Gear One G40DX btw, just some headphones that came with my MicroKorg last year. Either way, I put even more low end up on the bass, and (I think) did what you suggested with the guitars and stuff to make the other synths come through a bit more. I'm just trying not to make those background synths the main point of the song so I guess finding that balance XD. https://www.box.com/s/sku7qconzdrijnqkilxk As for you helping out, I really do appreciate it and honestly all the input you've given me so far has been for the better so I trust your judgement, so thanks.
  4. Thanks! And yeah since I posted someone else told me pretty much the same on the bass. I mean I have a lot of the low end brought up on it in the EQ. I just turned it up a bit here and widened the stereo from it originally being center to now 30% each side (the other synths are 50% and the rhythm guitars are full on each side). In my headphones it sounds more audible now, but I'm starting not to trust these 30 dollar cheapys haha. https://www.box.com/s/cggkk19w8ps511uc6pm9 Oh right, badass song btw. I listened to it last night on your topic, but I didn't have anything really constructive to say since it sounded perfect to me LOL
  5. So I tried out that s(M)exoscope and that thing is rad XD. Takes out a bunch of guess work and makes it super easy to see what's going on atm. So after putting it on, I got some more stuff level a bit so it wasn't having so many random jump ups from various things. Honestly, I'm still not sure if it's up to what you'd like. https://www.box.com/s/h7fcwau4nbze2e165z65
  6. So yeah, this is about as balanced as I could get it I believe. Personally I feel like it's too loud and cutting a lot of transients, but tried getting it up there like you said. As for the bass, I'm having an issue where it seems just right in my headphones, but I unplug them and I can hardly hear it lawl. Maybe it's just the shitty speakers on this Mac, but who knows. https://www.box.com/s/pjg47qxpt9gqvox6c1ng
  7. Thanks for the feedback man. There's a synth bass going on, but I guess I should pump some more out of it. I trimmed down a lot of the lower freq. since it was too much but I guess I went over board XD. As for the drums I'll try that, but they keep peaking out on me even though it's like heavily compressed already. I tried compressing it a tad more now and with more gain this time, but it still is jumping up there. I mean I got rid of some super low end to try to fix this a bit but still no dice. Any suggestions? EDIT: Well here's what I got anyways (I feel like it's almost too much now, but whatever I'll let you say what you think XD): https://www.box.com/s/1gimecbfrpwp0t8ogvz3
  8. First time submitting something here, but I figured it'd be worth a shot haha. So this is a remix of the game gear version of "Scrap Brain Zone" from Sonic the Hedgehog that I did last year for the Sonic Stadium's 2011 album. It includes some "cameos" like Never Let It Go from Sonic the Fighters, Sonic 3's Boss theme, and a tiny bit of Mad Gear Act 3 from Sonic 4: Episode 1. I touched up the mix a bit since it's release, but I guess this is where I see if it's up to snuff or not XD. EDIT: (Current/Final version here) Building the Empire - Wolfblur https://www.box.com/s/sku7qconzdrijnqkilxk And the original source if anyone is rusty on what the song is:
  9. Yeah, =/. I usually just have to stick to staccato trumpets and stuff for the fast attack and just sharp and punchy horn sound. Even then though, there's always that problem of wanting the complicated horn sounds like fluttering and growling and junk. I can kinda get by with these trumpets, but I usually can't even approach saxes. Too bad the actual instruments are expensive, let alone buying great mics to capture them.
  10. Heyo everyone (first off, I hope this is the right place for this, sorry if not) Anyways, for quite some time I've been looking for some awesome ska horn vst. Usually all the trumpets/trombone/sax I find seems geared toward orchestral...and that's kinda it. The big issue for me is that I'm extremely limited for what I can get, since I honestly only have Garageband on Mac until I bum up enough money for something better. That all said, does anyone have any pointers or know of anything great to get? Maybe a way to make orchestral horns more ska oriented?
  11. Oh my, it did get posted here too, =O! I'm Wolfblur from the album and glad a few people from here liked it, like it really means a lot to me at least. I was really tempted to maybe post a few of mine here, but honestly was a bit intimidated, since rejection can be a norm around here due to the strive for best-of-the-best kinda work. So yeah! Awesome! We'll have another one out next year as well, and hopefully even bigger.
  12. Thanks, and can do, =3. This probably means I should change up my double basses and cello progressions, since most of the time they are at 8ths as well. -Blur
  13. Hey thar. Once in a blue moon I'll post something I made here just to see a different level of feedback, =3. This piece belongs to my wolf concept album, obviously inspired from Star Fox's character: Wolf. It's not a remix of the same old tune everyone knows, but something completely different (thus posted in original works). http://soundclick.com/share?songid=9325269 I understand it's probably a little repetitive, but I under estimated the amount of work it takes to leash an entire orchestra, yikes. First time at it too, so I've probably facked up somewhere down the road, XD. Thanks for listening, <3. -Blur
  14. It's funny that I just read zircon's tutorials about a half hour after I posted that question. Thanks either way though, I'll try to get a new version of this out soon, =D. -Blur
