Re: Go ahead (Try Me prefight)

I was hoping to expand something I've been working on for Novembeat into an entry for this fight, but instead I got stuck listening to one part of it looping for ages and didn't finish anything for either challenge 👍

Balance Lost: After last fight's more straightforward rock song was such a critical and popular failure (I assume, not checked the results).
Ha! He won.
Hehe yeah I know, I was just messing around.

Re: Turn left by the three legged dog (Right Town, Wrong Address Reviews)

Excellent fight! Will have to set my threshold extremely high to avoid voting for nearly everything.

Orchestral / piano thing today, with a rhythmic loop made up from field recordings that I made on a walk to our local waterfall

I got a bit carried away with this one. Does it NEED to be six minutes long? Probably not. But is it six minutes long? Yes.

Re: Novembeat

Loving that last one, fluffy! Extremely chilled-out and feel-good. I'm hoping to get back on track today after taking yesterday off due to piano lesson taking up all my musical-energy for the day, but I've foolishly had a post-work beer and now it's even more of a struggle than usual to motivate mys...

Re: Remember that one time? (I Used To Know You Better Reviews)

Aww I loved the synths and I'm glad they were there! They were definitely a factor in my vote!

Re: Novembeat

fluffy, that big change-up at 1:30 is really cool!

Sam, some good synth sounds in there and I really like how you've used filtering creatively to add dynamics.

Hopefully I'll manage something today, but creativity is so much harder after a full day of work, ugh

Re: Loudness management

Having to turn my volume up or down for a track doesn't affect my voting, but if the quietness or loudness is a symptom of graver mix issues then it might well do. I've definitely found myself not voting for tracks that are super over-compressed in the past because it can be so ear-fatiguey (to use ...

Re: Good free Android podcast app

I'm interested in this too. I was initially using Spotify but I kinda like to keep my music and podcasts separate. I've been using Google Podcasts but recently I've been downloading episodes then going back to play them and they're no longer downloaded, which kinda defeats the point (and cuts into m...

Re: Novembeat

Thanks! "Nice Peloton, Dickheads" was an off-the-cuff insult from my partner towards a group of road-hogging cyclists a while back. It's a very satisfying turn of phrase. Really enjoying listening as well as creating. Particularly enjoyed the chiptune-y elements in both of your second songs! I'm hop...

Re: Novembeat

I was keen to attempt something every day this month but didn't get around to anything on day one, so TIME MAKES FOOLS OF US ALL, I guess. Anyway I managed something today! My songs will go here:



Really enjoyed the first tracks from both of you above!
