    Dodging Concrete

    Thanks everyone. So, it's basically ok...vocals could be doubled (I think they are doubled for real) and add maybe a bit more high end on the vocals. Drop the kick and bring up the bass a bit. I can do those things pretty much no worries I think. Thanks for all the advice. (By...

    Always There

    I'm caught in a trap...and I can't walk out... :) Nice one. Intro and that repeated section remind me of the great old song Suspicious Minds by the King. As usual, fine guitar work here.

    General tips on how you improved the most at producing, overall?

    If you mean mixing...I dunno, I've been tinkering with recording and mixing my own stuff for over a decade.

    Another song with lyrics

    All the instruments sound great. The vocal seems muddy compared to them or not in the same ballpark. I guess that's a scratch vocal or whatever you call it. Anyway, I'm very impressed with the backing. No probs with the vocal itself...just sounds not gelled with backing. I'd love to be able to...

    Question about Mineral Wool

    I just got a quote for 12 panels (2400x1200x50mm) here in Australia...polyester AcoustiAbsorb 3. $750 odd dollars...shipping (from within Australia mind you)...around $1000. LOL.

    Question about Mineral Wool

    Right. I think I should go back and read the discussion properly. I'm not fully on track here.

    Question about Mineral Wool
