    De opening, do you hear what's wrong?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hey guys, let's see if you can hear what's wrong with this little instrumental song by my former band here:

    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/...d=2651&alid=-1

    Which bloody (technical) mistake made the recording technician? (we got ourselves to blame, and we can't correct it because we deleted the song from the harddisk right after this mix. Stupid us)

    Just curious if y'all hear it...(and don't download the other tracks, unless you're dutch. Otherwise you don't get it, them being parodies and all )

    I can't hear the kick or the bass very well. The drums kinda sound buried in the back somewhere like they were an after thought or something. Besides that, I LOVED the tune.

    Very nice.

    I WANNA' PLAY, I WANNA' PLAY!!!

    Okay, listening now.

    WOW, WHAT A HUGE SCREW-UP RIGHT THERE AT...



    I'm kidding; sounds great. I mean, there's some timing weirdness, but it sounds kinda' intentional to me.

    Nice recording.

    I especially enjoyed "Als je stopt." I'm not as fluent as I used to be, but I'm a big fan of any tune that makes fun of a popular band, lol.

    Hahaha Chris , did you really listen to Als je stopt!? The band we're parodying (is that even a word?) is really that bad. We 'created' the song instantly - the 'singer' making up the lyrics on the spot (no, we didn't know what he was singing about either) - so that took us about 4 minutes. Then we spent the whole afternoon pasting applauses...what a wonderful waste of time.

    Anyway, thanks for the kind words. But you both haven't guessed it yet...

    Hint: it's in the guitars

    Hell yeah...I mean, you captured them, lol. I was especially rolling at the timing...and that ENDING! Choice...then, very appropriately ... HUUUUUGE APPLAUSE, lol.

    People are dumb.

    Speaking of that, I'm stumped on whatever the guitar problem is in De Opening. But I'm not real picky, lol.

    The feedbacking mic bit was damn funny to record too: the guitarist had to stop playing for a moment each time in order to place his hand on 'the feedbacking mic' (solely responsible for the feedback), which would instantly feedback because of the monitor speaker right under it.

    I love the good intentions of the guitarist in his solo. You almost get what he's trying to tell us, but his technique is sooooo bad... LOL

    OK, I might as well tell it...

    The guitars are out of phase.

    Our guitarist played it to his coworkers (hifi audio technicians, the type of guys who only can think of music in terms of 'dB's, high shelves, transients & frequencies sweeps') and they started screaming right after hearing the first 2 seconds:

    THE GUITARS ARE OUT OF PHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE. YOU IDIOOOOOOOOOOOTS!!!!

    They never told us what they thought of the song

    You know, I said in another forum that I'm woefully ignorant when it comes to phasing and polarity issues...I mean, I can hear it when I've recorded an acoustic with 2 mics and forgot to reverse the phase, b/c it washes out and sounds like a screwed up flange, but other times, I don't have a clue.

    Sounded cool to me. Hey, flanging is just a phase shift, right? So call it an "effect."

    The bad thing is: trying to fix it means pulling the rest of the tracks out of phase

    Yeah, let's call it an effect. A sickening effect (this truly out of phase stuff always makes me sick in the stomach)

    here's my question: Can you hear it? Or does it just show up on certain systems or in mono?
