    New cheap track

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I've uploaded a new low life track here :

    http://www.nowhereradio.com/artists/...d=1633&alid=-1

    It's called Exotic Tuesday.

    I'm still very shy in front of a mic and there's a million other issues at this state, I'm afraid.
    Comments of any kind will be thankfully received, the critical ones not the least .

    Best regards
    Erik Oberg

    Eric, this sounds real nice. I like the wide spread on the guitars. But man, don't be shy about singing, your voice sounds great here. Kinda reminds me of The Moody Blues in some parts. Bring that vocal up just a tad.

    Hey man...sing up!!!

    It sounds like you have a good voice. The music is really nice. Drums are kind of canned sound for my taste, but I kind of understand because I have to do all my drums via midi so...

    Song is a bit long IMHO. There are some nice instrumental breaks in there. Maybe just too many of them?

    Sounds pretty darn good man

    hey Erik O,

    Nice spacial definition and panning!!

    I've not the best ear but, do I hear alot of midi produced sounds? Not a bad thing, I'm just testing my ear

    Vox needs a more previlant(sp?) place in the mix. Maybe up the level, maybe cut some verb, but definitly let the vox out of the bag.........

    decent tune and better recording..imho

    Peace,
    Theron.

    Thanks a mill for the constructive comments, guys.

    Twist : Thank you . I just updated the track with a few changes. The vocals should be a bit louder and clearer now.

    Jagular : Yeah, I know. But the minute I hit the record button my throat gets extremely tense. It's a psychological blockade I have to overcome because it makes my voice sound completely numb.
    I've thought about the lenght of the song as well. I'm planning to make an intire new version (with the pitch raised in the chorus among other things) and I'll certainly consider to shorten the tune. Thanks .

    theron : Your ears are absolutely right. There's way to much midi sound for my own taste, that's why I call it cheap . Everything but the guitars and vocals is midi I'm afraid, but that's what I've got available at the moment .
    I removed the reverb from the lead vocal and made some other changes that hopefully make it more clear in the mix.

    Thanks again for the help, dudes .

    Decent piece of music. Vocally you remind me a little of Mark Knopfler (sp?).

    There's something I hear with the vocals that's a little strange. Not bad, just different. Were parts of them double tracked? I'm hearing some extra sibalance on the right side every once in a while, but I'm not sure if I'm confusing it some high end of the guitar.

    The vocal volume drops off near the end of some phrases - just something to watch out for.

    I liked the musical transitions that were speedier. I sort of wanted a new vocal section to come in after them.

    Everything was very clean sounding.

    dtb : thanx for the encouraging words .

    TripleM : There's a delay of the vocal track added to the right side (and chorus added to the left, btw.) so what you hear is ehh... right.
    Thanks a lot for listening .

    Thumbs up

    the new mix sounds a lot better with the vocals up.. I checked this out the other day, but just saw you posted a remix.. very cool tune.. the instruments seem a bit low, or maybe that cross stick is a bit loud.. either way a good listen..

    i like it erik o., beat box and all.

    but 8 minutes! man, i haven't even written eight minutes of music if you added all my songs together.

    i like the bass patch.

    your singing is fine. nothing to worry about, if there was, we'd tell you!
