    Two IndiePop Summer Tracks

    Hurts Allright / She's Everywhere is out now! Two new bright and sunny vibed tracks to celebrate summer and the beauty within it! The first track, Hurts Allright, I wrote in Lebanon, while on tour with the Seagulls. When I could not think of a better place to be, but also missed home. It's about...

    Cookie Monster Vocals

    I am not an expert but I would recommend either finding a vocal teacher with experience in the heavier styles or just practise and experiment. Chris Liepe, the vocal teacher I posted a video off above, has a lot of good videos filled with advice and practise tips. If you find a short cut I am...

    Building Music studio at home !!

    An interface, if you are mainly singing you wont be needing many inputs there are a lot of options for this in every price range. You will need a microphone. I would recommend a good pair of headphones (but you might already have those) And if your room acoustically is a workable room, or you...

    Feedback on Mix and Master ElectroPop

    bumping this up I have struggled loads with getting the high-end to work properly. All my reference tracks had way more 5k and up. This happens more often in my recording so I would love to know how to fix this and where I am at. How do these tracks work on your speakers? Any ideas, feedback?

    Cookie Monster Vocals

    Yes I do agree. I just wanted to put a quick reminder. Regular singing won't hurt a voice quickly. But when you start to experiment with new sounds a lot of singers go through different tries and not all of them are healthy, that is okay if you keep listening to your body. There are certainly...

    Thoughts about Micing and Mixing two acoustic guitars, Folk-type music

    Yes, that reverb thing is cool. See other cats do that with their hardpanned mics to, Left mic gets Right reverb. I get what you mean with the wide guitars sounding less natural. I personally have never found the sound of a wide guitar offensive, sure it is not how a regular guitar sounds, but...

    What if I like the sound of my clipping interface?

    As a general rule I have always gainstaged my interface so it doesn't clip. But ever since I have got this this Focusrite Clarrett interface I really enjoy the clipping sound on bass guitar and kick, I goove around with it for a bit and then turn it down cause I feel I should. Afterwards I often...

    Thoughts about Micing and Mixing two acoustic guitars, Folk-type music

    Yes, that works! I did a little preproduction session and this sounds lush. Even though the two guitar have a similar sound distinction isn't a problem. I'll post some clips when I've got the first track down. Thanks a lot!

    Cookie Monster Vocals

    Yes this is vocal technique. This is one is unique however since while it sounds strong in the recording it actually is not a loud vocal sound when you make it yourself so it needs a lot of gain on the mic. You can get there by starting experimenting with vocal fry, that croaky sound your voice...

    Trying to Make This Right, but Running Blind

    1st track Running Blind: Cool stuff. Drums sound good and like the song. The electric guitar on the left could probably mix in a bit more, sounds a bit dry to my ears. Vocal dub I would try to heavily de-es the dub, I hear a lot of double s and t sounds. I would try to change the claps on...

    All Day Long - Mix advice

    Cool songs! I noticed a big difference between Mind Your Head and All Day Long. In the first Bass has got a low-end and some nice oomph to it. I am missing that in All Day Long, which sounds a bit thin to my ears. I really enjoy the vocal dubs and backings on the Mind Your Heads chorus, sounds...

    Thoughts about Micing and Mixing two acoustic guitars, Folk-type music

    Thanks this is great, gives me a solid place to start from! I work in Ableton which normally does Balance, but I'll change that to Stereo Pan. Most records I did recently where big-ish, either contemporary ElectroPop or more Rock oriented for which huge was. But makes sense that for folk a more...

    Thoughts about Micing and Mixing two acoustic guitars, Folk-type music

    Thanks for your helpfull reply! Yes I will probably record them track by track. I wish I was the kind of guitar-player that could do live one takes (but I usually need a couple). Also planning to use to different guitars, which will hopefully differentiate. I will try stringing one bronze 80/20...

    Thoughts about Micing and Mixing two acoustic guitars, Folk-type music

    Hi Folks, I am planning to record a couple of songs with two acoustic guitars and two vocals. My go-to setup for acoustic guitar is usually two mics (often the same, sometimes different ones) one at the brigd one at the 12/14th fret and pan them hard left and right. But for this record I would...

    Feedback on Mix and Master ElectroPop

    I released two songs a couple of weeks ago and listening back I am shure there is lots that could be improved. It just get's harder and harder to hear it after months of mixing and mastering. Any feedback would be massively appreciated! Pieter David - Blame Game / Icarus

    Advanced(-ish) Electrical wiring and earthing for studio questions

    So after finishing my studio in which I tried to the electrics to the best of my abilities I still have got some questions that I can't easily find answers to. Underlying problems that might be solved this way are: * I sometimes get shocks from my SM58 * One of my to stratocasters picks up...

    let me see your studio!

    Redid my studio, most of it was done 1,5yr ago. But there's always more bits and bobs to be done, so I reckoned I'll just share it! Before: Then I took out both of the side walls and most of the ceiling: Two layers of plastboard, plastered the walls, painted it dark gray and added a...

    My first fully homemade recording just released. Would love feedback!

    Hi guys (and girls), It's been ages since I was on this forum, but you guys helped me along so much when I was just finding my first headphones, speakers and interface. Last weekend I released my first track together with a friend of mine, an electronic instrumental with quite some "real"...
