Re: Spintunes 15 Round 3 Challenge

Huge congratz to all the folks who made it. re: podcast. Thanks, guys! You had me smiling throughout. Nailed it with (the paraphrasing) middle aged white guy trying to rap for the first time. Way better than I thought it might be and still not great. For the record (and it's not a defense, I don't d...

Re: Let's all work hard on (Nights And Weekends Reviews)

Thoughts on my first (and sometimes second) listen: Third Cat - I liked the guitar right off the bat. It almost sounds like a posh 12-bar blues riff. I like the full arrangement hitting. But after the minute mark or so you lose me a little bit. It's a kind of cool groove but it's more texture than s...

Re: WTF Are The Modes?!

The first five minutes of this video is a pretty elementary explanation of using the Lydian mode. Take the same concept and apply it to other modes. (I've not watched the entire video.)

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Naw, it's the same thing. So in my example we are changing keys. In JB's example you are staying in the same key. If you take the C major scale and start on D and end an octave higher you are playing the Dorian mode in the key of D. If you took that same pattern and started on C (JB's second example...

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Pigfarmer's introduction to modes: Play the C Major scale. Play the exact same scale but start on the D and end an octave higher. Then again on the E etc., . Those are modes. Yes, it's less than an ideal practical explanation, but it might get you to internalize the idea. Each mode is just a differe...

Re: Free Plug ins

Waves H-Comp hybrid compressor is currently free. Scroll down just a bit. I already have it, but have never used it. It turns out that I've purchased several Waves plugins but only like a couple. (To be fair, they have super cheap bundles sometimes.)

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

Enjoyed listening through the whole podcast. Thank you for reviewing both songs fully.

For the record, not that anyone cares, the Pork Producer song was a last minute write with little to no time to spare in order to submit.

Sent mine in yesterday afternoon. Went out of town last night. I'm not unhappy with it, but I can still hear tweaks I could make. Such is the nature of timed songwriting challenges, eh?

Re: Tuning Vocals in Post

Typically I just record a couple of vocal takes and keep the best one, or maybe comp one take out of several, or sometimes use ReaTune to manually fix the one or two most glaringly bad notes. But I looked today at possible pitch tuning plugins (due to this thread) and found the Waves Tune plugin in ...

Re: Who Voted Today?

In the U.S. compulsory voting would just get the person who promises the most (often unattainable) shit more votes. If you don't care enough to vote you shouldn't vote. If you don't have a person running that you support you shouldn't (have to) vote. That being said, I'd be more open to it if we out...
