    Good job on the arrangement. I like that mellotron, it's suitably mournful. Mix sounds fine on headphones, drums & vocals are clear & present . Very nice melody, I really like the song. The melancholy mood suits me right now

    What mic did you use for Vox ?


    Sounds great.... listening on a MAC BOOK though..... very small speakers.

    Aw.. thanks. Bulls: You want to talk about it? Matt: It´s a Rode Nt1a, very dry room, going into a Mackie preamp to the Terratec EWS 88MT.

    Got better and better as it went on. I hate whatever is playing when you start singing...sounds like a pan flute on steroids, LOL...but that's obviously a personal preference thing.

    Drums sound really good. What are you using for drums? If you say "drums," that's cool, it's just getting harder and harder to tell these days.

    Nice job with the strings too.

    Damn, there's that fucking pan flute at the end again.

    In all seriousness, I liked this a lot and I thought the mix was very good.

    Congrats for the clean arrangement and well recorded and defined instruments / vox (what gives you the possibility to use more (or much more) reverbs and delays (...but its my personal taste).


    Just curious, what is "recorded" and what is sampler?

    I LOVE the flutes.

    Remind me a little of a Mellotron, and I think they work well with the Vocal.

    Songs sure has a "mood" or character to it. Recording, aside, the song is just excellent.

    Is the Vocal maybe mixed a tad loud ?

    What pre-amp ?


    haha - what is that on the Left speaker, just before the drums kick in?
    (Sounds like somebody says something)

    A mis-edit ?




    You know what........ if you got time, why not just list your whole setup for this ?

    Answer the questions for the guys asking about samples, and I love to know some of the particular details on other instruments as well.

    It DOES sound good. Reminds me of Crash test Dummies for some reason. The mix overall seems a little out of whack. Maybe some Professional Mastering will fix that? Nice job.
