Thanks to all of you who have offered explanations and posted resources. I feel much closer to understanding this now.

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Thanks, JB and Pigfarmer, for the explanations. It seems like you're saying slightly different things, though. I understand JB to mean "start on the same note (C) and move up using differing patterns (depending on what mode is chosen) of whole and half steps." I understand Pigfarmer to mea...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I've been using Ardour for the last several months. Here's an example of what the two built in pitch correction control interfaces look like.

Re: Let's all sit down and read (Poetry In The Streets Reviews)

I apologize for the late reviews. Lots of traveling, etc. I’ve slept in three time zones this week. Berkeley Social Scene—Nothing wrong with this song, but it doesn’t seize my interest. I think a more energetic percussion arrangement might have been desirable. The guitar playing is very good, as is ...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

I can't help but think that this might be at least partially aimed at me. I don't have any compunction about pitch correction, but I don't seem to be very good at using it. I have tried it several times, but it always seems to sound overly electronic. The only time it made it onto the finished mix w...

Re: Tamer than Dancing (Poetry In The Streets prefight)

Be forewarned: I'm attempting to play a guitar--for the first time ever--on this week's entry. Also, I think I've set a personal record for highest density of allusions.

Re: Poetry In The Streets

Poetry in the Streets by Lichen Throat There goes Wordsworth, walking with John Donne, Heading south on Highway 61. At the corner of St. Clair and Jane, Byron talked about Abel and Cain. There’s poetry in the streets; Recite the words of Shelley and Keats. There’s music on the page; Bring the past ...

Re: Red Warrior Needs Reviews Badly (Blue Woman Yes reviews)

Wow, with the exception of mine, everyone’s songs sound so professional this week. This is a really strong fight; probably the highest percentage of songs I’ve ever voted for. Berkeley Social Scene—The vocal sounds good, as do the guitars. I like the contrast between the verses and the chorus. Solid...

Re: Automatic songs, automatic reviews (Yes, You're A Robot reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I think I’d like a higher density of percussion notes; it might make the song seem faster without actually increasing the tempo. In general, though, this is a solid, enjoyable song. It’s also among the better BSS vocal performances, in my opinion. glennny—This reminds me of Pin...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Lichen Throat - This is really quite compelling. Your vocal is working with the music for me this time. I've been playing around with this on my guitar today because I wanted to get a better handle on its construction. I think it'd be neat if the final time through the chorus it ended on an A major...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Of course the Cinnabon reference was from last fight's podcast! I put that in just for you guys; the hard part was making it fit into the song in a way that made sense. I enjoyed this week's podcast quite a bit and found most of the comments insightful, both for my song and all the other songs. Spec...

Re: Where's The Shredder for the (Tearing Down History Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—I like the piano in the chorus. In the mix, the vocal sounds almost like it’s separate from the rest of the song, especially at the beginning. I’m not grooving on the 70s guitar sound, but the solo is really sweet. Glennny—The gradual buildup throughout each verse is very well ...

Re: I Hope You Get A"round" to your (Square States Reviews)

Berkeley Social Scene—The dreamy tone of both the instruments and vocals sets a good atmosphere. The chorus doesn’t quite follow through on the buildup in each verse, but this is fun overall. (And houses in Denver are definitely not cheap.) Duckman—I’d like to hear the higher pitched guitar playing ...
