    Enya's Orinoco Flow - Hard Rock

    So, it's been too long since I posted. I hope to make up for that by this cover of Enya's Orinoco Flow. I'm going to use it for a YouTube video and I'm interested in pretty much any feedback. Updated Mix v2 http://www.artcitysound.com/clients/testbed/Orinoco_Flow.mp3 Thank you! PS - For...

    One Headlight - Rock / Metal Cover

    So, I've decided I've gone completely nuts. For the past six months, I've been making weekly YouTube videos, and to go along with the videos are fully-produced songs. These songs are covers of popular songs from any era. I've done 32 so far, and it's been kind of crazy, as it started on a...

    Every Breath You take - Cover

    So, I haven't posted in a while, but I was wondering about the overall mix of this. This is the first time I've ever attempted putting forth serious effort into singing lead vocals. Any comments on arrangement and mix would be greatly appreciated. Not so concerned about the ridiculous...

    Starting sophomore album - first song - Knot In Your Stomach

    So my band, Tiny Boats put out an album in 2014. I think my mom may have listened to it. That, however, was not good enough. For our second album, if possible, I'd like to get my dad on board, and I figured reaching out to you guys might actually help that happen. I'm working now in a...

    Ethereal Embers - Been forever, I know... (New Original)

    So, I've been so busy producing other people's music, I've all but forgotten how to do my own. As electronica is definitely not my forte, I thought I'd post this here for a few critiques, comments, and whatnot. Critiques on everything are welcome. Specifically... Did it hold your interest...

    Burn in the Sun - Full production release

    So... I feel badly about this, but I've been producing music lately and not putting it up here. This place is where I learned how to track and mix drums properly, and basically got stellar advice from people all over the world for the span of a few years. So, to make up for this heinous crime...

    Treading New Ground - Mixing Acoustic Drums and Electronica...

    So, it's been awhile... sup, everyone! :) I've been busy in the studio, but I thought it was time to again try something that has always ended up as garbage whenever I've tried it in the past. Mixing acoustic drums on an otherwise entirely electronic track. This one turned out all right, but...

    First post from new Studio - Hardcore (language warning)

    So... I've spent the last 3 months building a new studio, which I'm now struggling to tune. So far, I've got two finished recordings, one of which I can post here. This isn't really music I listen to, but I can definitely appreciate it. Anyway, the tracked drums were very flat-sounding, and...

    Zombie Apocalypse Love Song - "Something It's Not"

    I had an interesting opportunity with a client the other day. He came in, wanted to record a song as fully produced as he could. It was just he and I, and we had about 4.5 hours to get it done from start to end. Lucky for me, he was a great singer, and had an open mind as far as production...

    FS Like New Echo Audiofire12 Firewire Interface

    Bought this a year ago, and have nothing but good to say about it. I recently upgraded to an RME Raydat, and no longer have use for the Echo. Has 12 ins / 12 outs, and works like a charm. I was using it at 96KHZ with 10ms latency on my Linux box. Works flawlessly in Linux, Mac, and Windows...

    FS Like New Joe Meek 3Q. Used twice - in perfect condition.

    I bought this thing, used it twice, and am now gonna sell it for half of what I bought it for. It is in perfect condition. Any takers at $150.00? Hope that image comes across.

    Virgin voyage into Electronica...

    Those of you who have listened to my stuff will have heard my rock or pop songs of varying flavors, but those of you who know me know I really like Trance. I never thought I'd actually try to create some. Sometime last year I got a Korg Radias and a Roland Fantom X8, and haven't used much of...

    Violin New Age - Used different mic'ing technique.

    This one came out quite good, I do believe. It's been awhile since I've posted anything, so I thought I'd see if I'm up in the air again with my mixes. This place always tends to bring me back to earth. This one is from a client whose music does a good job of inspiring me. It's far from...

    Hot off the press - "Gonna Break" - PoeticIntensity Original

    Spent most of the day doing this one. Mixed after my ears were already dead, and was half-asleep. Wanted to get my guitar speed up a bit, so I wrote this one. Lemme know any thoughts, especially if the lyrics are intelligible. Tough one to mix. "Gonna Break" "Gonna Break Updated" "Gonna...

    From scratch to finished product - 7 hours. "Ocean Avenue (acoustic)"

    A client of mine came in this morning, and we worked on this until 5:00pm. I think it turned out okay, but I'm working on learning how to master with a multi-band compressor better. Any thoughts on the final product? Too harsh? Too compressed? Thanks for your comments. Ocean Avenue...

    Roland RS-9, 2 Delta 1010's, and a Yamaha Rev 500 For Sale

    This forum has been a gold mine for me and my studio, so I thought I'd give a little back. I'm going to host this as "highest bidder wins", with no floor on bidding. (means you can have this stuff for $5.00 if nobody outbids you) All items are for sale due to an upgrade. All items are in good...

    New Drums - I'll Stand By You

    Okay... So, my sister-in-law can sing. I've never recorded her before, but tonight, she came over, and through much prodding, she ended up singing the Carrie Underwood version of, "I'll Stand By You". The next part of the story is that, after using the same Gretsch drum kit for a decade, I got...

    Live Your Dreams - PoeticIntensity Original

    Been working on this for a few months. Learning new guitar tricks, and hopefully tightening things up a bit in the process. The big gaping hole in the middle needs to be filled with some sort of solo. Still pondering on what that might be... Any takers? Live Your Dreams As always...

    It's kind of personal now. "Pot Of Gold"

    So, I recently had to go to Vegas for my FT job, and while I was there I had an idea for a song. This is the result. By far the hardest / heaviest song I've ever written. I'm pretty sure the lyrics are completely unintelligible, but I kind of like it that way. Comments about anything are...
