    really dig this one starise! i like the fuzz on top of all the acoustic stuff... nice mix, and i like the tempo you chose. it's got a lively step to it, even tho krakens can slow things down quite a bit. until you feel sullied and unusual. LOL
  2. well, you don't have to do it that way. it's your choice, no one else's. always use your ears, not meters.
  3. dig this cover! nailed all the parts! excellent effort here, my only issue is that the guitars all sound a bit fuzzy, and the overall level seems too hot, like it was mastered too hot. all issues that can be addressed in the mix... carlos alomar would be proud! 😄
  4. wookie's got that right, Old Joad... these are 'working' mixes, meaning, they're active... in fact, usually an early mix i put up, like this one, is obsolete by the 3rd day it's up!! LOL so, just so you'll know, i posted EVERY song on this new album, right here, looking for help from my 'peer' group, and in most cases, i got GREAT help! sometimes i posted early mixes, and then later, final mixes, just to get enough feedback to dial in the songs, so at this point, i have 10 finished instrumentals, my first album of instrumentals.... i have 4 other full length albums of vocal songs... this album will be called "Elemental", doing album art right now.... tweaking final mixes.... then very light mastering, targeting -14 LUFS... then off to the cd printers, and they usually take a week to turn it around... off to Amazon, once that's done, i'll put out some links. hope you pick one up!
  5. howdy ho, gary! i don't know how different this one really is, but it's cool that it hits a new chord... hi hat too hot, check. i've completely edited that hat, new hat choice, new eq and level the rhythm guitars, are all mono, and hard panned... the solos are a mix of mono and stereo, typically i don't pan the stereo solos, and soft pan the monos, depending on where the balance is required.
  6. hello douglas! i'm glad you dig this stuff.... hi wookiee! glad you caught this one too, it will be one of the last things posted, time for me to wrap this project up. i'll be beginning final mixes tweaks, then start mastering. meanwhile, i have original artwork to begin before sending it to the printers for a batch of cd's.
  7. hi paul! thank you for listening bass was stepping on the synth bass, and vice versa, so i worked on that quite a bit...
  8. https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/neon-blues this is the first mix of this tune, 1st time i've posted it. need some feedback on the mix in general. mix is kinda 'faders up', so i'll be tweaking the mix quite a bit, so feel free to include your ideas. this is song #10, of a ten song instrumental album by Bats Brew, called "Elemental". hope you enjoy it! Neon Blues
  9. U MISSED one of the best ones! 🙉
  10. alright, i took this one down now, it's just gathering dust, i do want to say, i appreciate EVERYONE who has helped me put this project together, with insights and comments and suggestions. i may have one brand new one to post, that has never been posted, but then that's it until the discs are printed!
  11. THANKS HARRY C appreciate the comments it's gonna be a fun album to listen to
  12. hi douglas! thanks for the comments man, it's very cool that you pick up on the Vagaries of my playing style...! ;hehehh, playing out? you know, i did so many gigs when i worked full time ...almost 6 years. i lived on the road, and played mostly 6 nights a week, 5 hours a night, from town to town.... one thousand, two hundred and seventy two nights (gigs). a guestimate, for sure, but if anything, it's on the light side. that was my 'playing out' time. LOL
  13. https://soundcloud.com/bats-brew/center-of-everywhere-mix-3 just looking for spectral balance on this one, if you hear something off, please let me know. and get up and boogie if you feel like it.
  14. hi douglas yes, a bit funky indeed.... i played on the road for 6 years full time with a band, that did a LOT of funk, as well as rock. i have an affinity to it. thanks for listening
  15. alright mark! thanks for listening to this one.... the chime part, yea... that's fun, a bit of gain, a bit of compression, then just pop em out! heheh, a little indulgent, but works so well.
