  1. The mix was really good, thought maybe the bass was a very small bit forward, it kept stealing my attention from the lyrics particularly around the bridge (which is pretty damned nice.) Piano is divine. Damn I liked this one. Really enjoyed the journey the chords took me on.

  2. Thanks wookie, this is a nice one, I enjoyed the changes in the middle quite a bit and the end was quite good.

  3. I gave this a listen last night on my phone's little dinky speakers. I think that if a mix sounds decent that way, it will sound great on phones or speaker. And this sounded good on the phone. I could hear everything. Yeah, you're right, the bass is too forward but at least it's tone is really good.

    I just gave it another listen on the ol' Slate VSX phones with the plugin active and set to Archon room, mid fields and it sounds pretty good. Get that bass mixed in right and it will sound a lot better. I'd love to hear more of the guitar. I like it's tone quite a bit. 

    I'm curious, what do you guys intend to do with the product of these jams? Inquiring minds wonder.

    Are you going to do more development with Blood Bath 535? I liked that one quite a bit.


  4. I'm sure this is a common problem  with the aging boomer generation. I have severely compromised high-frequency hearing acquired in the military. Up until now my strategy has been to mix it as best as I can taking into account my hearing loss and then letting a lot of different people including people on this forum hear what I've done.

    If I recall correctly sonarworks plugin has an algorithm that applies correction based on the average frequency degradation for a given age range, but I don't know if that will help you given the nature of your hearing loss.

    I think what makes the most sense is knowing what frequencies are compromised and setting up a special EQ that compensates for them.  

    However you choose to deal with it,  sitting on the porch hasn't been an option for me.

  5. Thanks, that's exactly what I was after.

    Those drums sound pretty freakin' real to me. Guitars sound great too.

    I didn't know a Twin Reverb could be se on fairly low volume.  Ha!

  6. That track is good! The mastering job sounds pretty good too, but it sounds in places like the track has lost some definition between instruments. Maybe you have it set to be more aggressive?

    I didn't know about the free bandlab mastering service, I'll have to check it out.

  7. Great recording, I can hear everything and what I hear sounds quite good. The track misses a bass. :) Can you talk a bit about your recording set up?

  8. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. Pretty cool melodies and the lead voice is pretty compelling. Thanks!

    i guess Bill figured it was ok to steal some ideas after Apple stole it from Xerox 🙂 

    If I recall correctly both representatives from Apple and Microsoft visited the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. Microsoft and Apple both liberally stole from Xerox. I'm sure there was a lot of cross pollination between Apple and Microsoft as well.

    I love the flexibility of PC, I absolutely abhor the Windows experience and GUI....its just a terrible OS for Audio/Media production compared to OSX/MacOS and even Linux.    

    Funny how Windows actually originated when  Bill Gates went snooping through Apples first GUI prototype machine and lifting its code.  And Windows still to this day feels like it was designed in a hurry and all from memory.  

    As a very long time Windows user and a once-in-a-blue-moon Mac user, in my opinion the Windows experience is a well-designed and very logical environment compared to the  horror show that is the Mac user experience.

    But that's just me. :)

    Programs I purchased in the 90s will still run on my Windows 10 desktop unchanged. My brother has to upgrade  all of his software every time Apple decides his computer isn't quite right anymore.

  11. Thank you for giving it a listen, Jesse, and thanks for the feedback! I'm not really sure who I sound like but I often wished I sounded like almost anybody else. 😀

    Such a great listen !  It's very well produced and recorded . . . got that unpredictability factor. That vocal effect panned right is especially interesting, lot of solid instrument accompaniments throughout.

    I'm glad you enjoyed it, thank you for listening and posting your thoughts.

    Nice "build" in this one, really like that BG Vocal in the left can; adds a lot of dimension.

    Overall A+ I'm thinking...


    Thank you for listening, Tom, your feedback is very much appreciated.

    Kevin!  I just listened to this twice, and I'm ready to jump back in.  To me, the arrangement is the star on this tune, which makes it sound very fresh.  Your vocal work has what I look for- texture and feel.  Take a bow!

    Wow, thanks for the confidence boost, Lynn! I am grateful for your time and  your ear!

  15. I spent some time in Europe in the 70's and 80's and this kind of dance music was  playing in every club and disco I walked in to.  Floors were packed too.  This is a very good song with really well done vocals and a quality mix and it brings back some truly great memories. I'll have to look up your other work, this is good stuff.

    Coolness of the song's vibe? 10/10

    The vocal ideas and treatment are so interesting to listen to. Kind of washes over you, really great.

    The drums have a great live sound as well.

    There are spots, just a couple,  where the lyric intelligibility gets a tad mushy but then it's a tone poem that still works great.

    For a mix idea, bass guitar up? and the acoustic guitar might be a little pokey (or under-reverbed?) in the upper end of the eq spectrum.

    If it were mine, the ending would be a fade out of that last section you have with the "power chord" guitar, as opposed to the fading sustain of that keyboard stab. If that makes any sense.

    very enjoyable listen!




    Tom, as always your feedback is most welcome! As for the end, yeah, I don't think I'm quite done with this one yet, but I think it's  finally getting to be in the ballpark of where I wanted it to go.  Thanks!
