    A original I have been working on .

    I hear some AIC influences in there......song as a whole is really cool. I agree though, needs a re-mix. Vocals need to be brought up some. Cool to have them sitting back a little in the mix but they are too far back. Cool guitar sound but in my opinion a little too thin or maybe a tad too much...

    Rise Up - Original

    Ok I lied....I thought I was done with hard rock for a bit but this one just came out. I bumped the kick up a little more than normal but it almost sounds too much for me. What do you think? Anything else sound really out of place? Lights in the Sky Visions Bring Wandering eyes Crashing down...

    Shattered - Hard rock original

    This one is a little strange I think...Been working on the vocals way to much on this to try and get it to sound right. When your not a great vocalist, it seems to take forever. Anyway, lyrics are crazy simple and may not do the song any justice. Lyrics: The sun shines again As your soul...

    Saving "Folder" templates?

    So for the first time ever after 5 or so years of using Addictive Drums I decided to try to use separate the kit pieces into separate tracks in SonarX3. Man it sounds sooo much better to me and I have better control over everything. So I have everything routed out(not bounced down to audio) and...

    Are all WAVE plugins subscription?

    I think its a horrible payment model for us "hobbyist" who may or may not use them. I would rather pay a flat fee and be done with it and use it or not use whenever I wanted. So are all WAVE plugs subscription?

    Powered monitors remote switch

    Just checking to see if anyone else does this and/or if it would cause problems in the future. I have a set of JBL powered monitors and it can be a pain in the ass to get to the back of them to turn them on. I have a furman rack power switch and was thinking of using that switch to turn them on...

    If you could build your own studio from scratch....

    In the next 6-8 months we are going to be building a two-bay RV post built barn. The wife has already said I could us half of the second side for a studio. So that will be approx. 12'x20' or a little larger. Obviously I will be doing the "room within a room" to prevent most all noise from...

    School me on mixers...digital or USB

    Right now I use a Focusrite Sapphire USB Interface. It has two inputs which is fine for what I do now. But trying to look into the future and the "big picture". Many many moons ago I mixed with a large 24 channel tascam analog board. I loved having adjustments at my fingertips. I saw that many...

    Bass Frequency response adjustments

    OK, need bass guitar mixing advice. and its probably a really elementary question. So, is actual loudness(dB) actually the same as perceived loudness? My question is if I hit an "A" note on the bass, check the frequency response on my analyzer and it peaks at +12dB, and then I hit an "E" note...

    Low End Mixing advice

    I have been mixing for awhile off and on. By no means PRO, just amateur status. However, I have a hard time grasping the concept of how much low end to put into a song. For example, I can mix a song to sound great to my ears and it sounds great in the car and on my system. When I play it on my...

    High in the Sky - Blues original - 1st draft

    Hey Guys, been a while since I posted. Been working on this song last few days between studying for exams. ***FIRST DRAFT*** I know this will need a ton of work including retracking most parts to get it "tighter" and probably add a bridge of some type. But just wanted to hear your thoughts on...

    Down-N-Out -Original Blues/Rock

    Came up with this the last few nights while my lady has been out of town. I wanted to try something with some "space" and "dynamics". Not sure if I accomplished that as everything I do ends up being hard and loud lol. I have been F'n with the chorus vocals for hours and hours to get it to sound...

    Gun in the Drawer - Original

    Imagine going to bed with your lady and everything is all normal. You are awakened by loud crash and find that the apocalypse(of your choice) has happened and all you have left is your lady. This hope of helplessness is what I tried to capture. This is a work in progress, this started off as a...

    As Fast as I Can - REMIX

    I have listened to this song so much that I may have F'd it up rather than make it better...so please comment. I tried bringing out the bass more and make it more distinct. The lead vocals are meant to be gritty and distorted sounding but may just not work. Let me know if its any improvement...

    Meet Me in The Dark - HARD ROCK ORIGINAL

    Hey Guys, this is my latest work. I realize its not for everyone and it's a little "50 Shades of Grey". Still working out verses so the first is repeated for the second. I still think it needs a third to make the whole thing a little longer. I have been working on this sporadically for the last...

    I currently run Sonar X3 Studio on my Laptop. i5 chip and 4Gb of RAM. Running WIN7 Home premium 64bit. It actually does not do too bad but I am wanting to use a desktop computer for my studio. As I look over specs for new computers I can't find the combo I want in my price range. I am thinking...
