  1. Great, yeah this is definitely an area I know nothing about, and having these vocabulary items to search for is definitely helpful. Not quite ready for more feedback yet, though I've used the above information to clean some things up. There are a few places still where I can tell there's interference, but I'm not sure exactly what to adjust, and it's probably going to come down to a lot of experimentation and tweaking. So many decisions! Probably going to have to take a trip to the library or youtube to get more of a feel for what's involved on the audio engineering side of things, but this whole process has done wonders, I think, for developing something of an intuition for how an arrangement goes. Thanks again!
  2. That video was helpful! In addition to observing Zircon's process a little, watching it made me realize that I was trying to make a dance track for some reason, when instead I wanted it to be like something from a John Carpenter movie, evoking some concept of waking the dead, or perhaps of the dead waking the living? Something like that. It's a vague concept, but it's starting to get closer to something I'm proud of, though I'm probably going to step away from it for a few days to listen to it with fresh ears. Those accidentals in the pizzicato part were hiding from me because that instrument has kind of a loose tuning. As soon as I switched it to a synth the problem was extremely clear, and now I have all these nice synths! https://talesofinsecurity.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/vampirekiller3.mp3
  3. Huh, that's interesting. I thought I'd stayed pretty rigidly in D harmonic minor (with a few exceptions? like in the main motif) but I'll examine it in finer detail later. Really appreciate this close listening you're doing for my little track. Makes me feel like I need to do everything I can to make it better! From your comments, it seems like my efforts to keep the arrangement safe were a little too successful, and that the riskier parts of the arrangement may have been the wrong risks. A lot to think about!
  4. Thanks again for the feedback and your time. That panning issue seems emblematic of greater personality flaws, as though my general reticence spills over into everything I do. So, I moved almost everything to the middle and tried to make everything more confident in general. I think it sounds much better now, but I'm not sure where to go next. https://talesofinsecurity.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/vampirekiller_2.mp3
  5. Thank you, that's really helpful! I was trying to use panning to keep things separated, but that's different than having things properly organized. And thanks for the welcome! I've been a listener since the early 00s, so I'm hoping I can fit in some way or another (^v^)
  6. Hi, So I think the arrangement is close to done, but I need some advice on mixing. https://t.co/nbwZ1I6gc7 I'm kind of new to audio production, so I'm really open to any advice at all. I know there are places where I need to do something, but I'm not sure what. Thanks, I hope I'm doing this right. I'm kind of shy.
