    No, I don't mean turn everything up and stand in front of the amp...

    New track uploaded, it's called The Fallen and expands on the concept of an ancient alien race pulling the strings behind the scenes.

    Take a listen, see what you think.

    The Fallen

    If you're interested, I have a whole bunch of other stuff here:

    I have never been one to really like a plugged in acoustic guitar tone. I really like the guitar arrangement but would much rather prefer to hear it miked acoustically. Cool song I like when everything jumps in and the miked acoustic would have more pop there. Stick out a little more, the direct sound is dull to me. Cool stuff.Erockrazor

    Yeah, typical, within a day of posting the link, my ISP takes servers down for maintenance... Sorry about that - it appears to be back up again now.

    More feedback welcome!

    Excellent tune Dave - I love the way the acoustic verses move to the rockier chorus'. And the prog rock styling is very tasty.

    Cool vocal effects @ 2:15 and guitar effect at 3:40

    Only one thing that came up while listening to this fabulaous piece. Got a bit of what sounds like noise - maybe amp hum? - it's at the beginning and the end - say 4:05 - end. Is that a keyboard patch??? It does fill in the background but sounds like noise. I'm on headphones so it may be more prevalent on them.

    What are you compressing with - it sounds great!

    Just my 2 cents worth - I think the kick could benefit from more presence - perhaps a boost around 11KHz or so should bring it out a little better... At the moment its a little difficult to hear in places and the underlying rythm seems to loose itself as a result.

    That's one of two things... There is a Cello keyboard patch behind the accousting guitar parts, and I keep it going throughout the fade off at the end of the song. Failing that, it could be the electric guitars, I tend to let them fade off on their own without fading them out, I really like the feel of it, but I do sometimes get a bit of a hiss...

    Point taken and noted. I think the drums are the hardest to record, I'm learning all the time.

    Thanks again for taking the time to listen. As I said there's a whole bunch of my stuff on the Music Link on my home page.

    I like it

    .
    As i'm a sucker for the romantic idea of the "Human" fighting back

    problem is it's harder to determine what a human is?

    i like the argument of the prole waking up.

    we will see.
    but then again that is just my interpretation as you didn't specifically mention any humans.

    the mix is good as you noted the drums are always the hardest..

    i like particularly the kik beaks. the hum noise i'm adaptive to as i like noise generally.
