Re: One shape does not fit all (Square State prefight)

Tuners Union is in as well, with something that's not really finished and has a whole slew of mix problems.

Re: Open to anything

Thanks Chumpy and jast. Just thinking out loud here, but it'd be really cool to be able to automate stem generation, such that anybody can share projects with anybody regardless of DAWs. And then you could even use a source control during the writing phases. For instance, in my DAW of choice, I coul...

Thanks jb, good to know. I was thinking Dropbox may be a decent option too.

Re: Open to anything

Awesome! Ray and Micah, I'll message you guys and get things moving. Also, just so you know, I've never really done remote collaboration, so I don't have a feel for how to do this effectively. But we'll figure it out.

Open to anything

Anybody want to work on anything together? Songfights or not, either way is okay with me. I feel I've been stagnating lately, and so I'm looking for new experiments.

Whoa. That bothers me too. Not sure why that happened, also a little bothered I didn't catch it. Sorry about that.

Re: No regerts (It Made Sense At The Time reviews)

... the acoustic guitar sound could maybe be ... better. I agree. I did this with a Martin Traveler, which I usually like because it has a real nice throaty tone, if thin. But I also double mic'ed it, with a condenser down by the sound hole and a dynamic aimed up close to the fretboard. The intenti...

Re: No regerts (It Made Sense At The Time reviews)

Reviews. This may be my favorite fight ever. In random order: Vinegar: The vocal tone/fx on the chorus ("the sun rises..") is excellent. And the tone of the solo starting at 0:48 fits perfectly, and it comes back right when it should. I also really like the subtle synth on the left. My only criticis...

Re: Fear the reviews, instead (Fearless Love Reviews)

Late. Sorry. I been busy and haven't listened to anything yet. First and foremost, the cover art makes me chuckle. Thanks, Jerk. I will preface this by saying that I am listening to these songs on shitty earbuds in a hotel room, so any comments I make on mixes please just disregard. Charles and Pier...

Tuners Union is trying. On a whim, I downloaded a demo of FL Studio 12 and have some of a song done. But man... I hate, hate, hate this program. I'm too far into it to turn back now though. Here's hoping...

Re: This cocaine didn't do anything for me. [No Rush Reviews

Elaine, you've made my day. A person in a bathtub in Germany hears music I've written. Somehow, this is seriously blowing my mind right now. For what it's worth, I spent a few weeks in Karlsruhe a couple years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it entirely because of castles (and because I avoided work-peop...

Re: So Much Music, So Little Reviews (Universe)

Remind me of The Beta Band and I'm a huge fan of them so I mean that as a big compliment. I remember you saying this before - thanks. I'm a fan of theirs too and The Aliens, although I never really would have considered them an influence. Is that a ukulele in the background? There's a uke in there,...

Re: 8 Days A Year (Drunk Season)

Found this slightly less jarring if you can believe that. Oh I can, I've done the same thing. You do what you gotta, especially given our timeframes. Working on improving recording techniques, but it's not something I find easy. Don't have a great ear for it. It's not easy, but the ear develops. Al...

Re: 8 Days A Year (Drunk Season)

Berkeley Social Scene [/url] I don't think I like the synth with the hard pan. But dang do I like the progression, and the vocal melody complements it extremely well. For me this is Beach Boys + Weezer, and I mean that in a seriously good way. The solo doesn't do much for me though, technically pro...

Brian Eno, circa Fat Lady of Limbourg . Not my intention, honestly, but I love me some Eno. Thank you. I immediately think of Peter Gabriel kind of stuff.
