    Break beat Acoustic!

    I was messing around and came up with this song yesterday.
    What do yous think? Ive just started recording it so its by far finished, but the chorus is just about there.

    I used a very very crap PC mic straight into my ReakTek soundcard!
    Not the best set up by any means! lol
    And sorry for the loose playing, I did each part in 1 or 2 takes in quite a rush.

    Cheers,
    Eck

    sounds great! your stereo field is sounding amazing. only complaint is that it seems like there are no cymbals that arent directly to my left or right. the overheads are unrealistically panned I feel. Other than that, it sounds really cool. nice work!

    nice work Eck, i'm still impressed by the way you manage to get such great sounds from your recording chain. that track is just screaming for some bass! with a cool bassline it would sound great. this song is gonna be awesome.
    Maybe you can interface with my ass, by biting it.

    Thanks again Zed32.
    I stand by the rule that the 1st thing in your signal chain is the most important thing, which is the source. Then once youve got the source right then the most important thing in your signal chain is the 2nd thing, usually mic.

    Cheers man,

    I like the way that this song comes together when the drums come in. What a neat piece! I'd like to hear vocals. I like the accoustic lead...ALOT. No complaints.

    THanks alot James.
    Glad you like it. The guitars will be replaced with heavy distorted guitars if we decide to use it in our band.
    Heres our link to some of our songs in our band website if you are interested in hearing more. Our album will be released in all major record stores in the UK, USA and Europe in a few months. woot! Got a download single coming out soon also.

    I really dig the tune! Guitars sound great. (This is the kind of stuff I wish I was playing with some other people ) I could use some more punch in the kick though.

    This is great. Will it have vocals???

    Like Zed said, it is screaming for a bass! Are the drums leaning a bit to the right??? It might be me leaning a bit to the left. The drums sound incredible by the way. Natural and in your face, but not too loud for anything.

    This will be great when it's done.
