[QUOTE=whitespace;22857412]You should add that to the OP.[/QUOTE] Sure thing! Great idea. I'll also post a disclaimer.

In progress Drum & Bass style thing. In progress cause I'm in desperate need of a good drum pack. Anyone got any idea for FLStudios? [url]http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/343205[/url]

I'm having a hard time seeing the direction of the song if you get what I mean.
It's not really about anything in particular, I was bored in FL and was testing some effects and what not.
[QUOTE=yoiT;22877033]It's not really about anything in particular, I was bored in FL and was testing some effects and what not.[/QUOTE] Well try to have a vision, it'll make it sound less like a random collection of notes.
Here is a song that my friend sung and i edited a tad, but i am having trouble getting the background noises out (clicks, pop, turning of gears, Etc) [URL="http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7813884/Michal%20Singing%20Look%20After%20You%21%20D%20Enhanced.wav"]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7813884/Mich...20Enhanced.wav[/URL] (also i use Audacity beta 1.3 unicode)
It's not easy to filter things out from audio, it either stays there or you filter some actual music out as well. Filtering random sounds requires deep analysis and that's not possible with Audacity as far as I know.
Best way to filter out noise is to make your recording setup is noise free to begin with. I've been learning this pretty quickly.
Wrote my first notes yesterday, now I want to transcribe some easy songs on piano, any suggestions?
Some crit would be nice. I'll probably start to master it soon after I iron out any issues.

Do famous guitar riffs. Sing a cool phrase and then play it on piano. If you hear something that sounds cool and you can make out all the notes, try playing it.
The guitar seems to be out of tune in the beginning or the chords aren't in harmony with the bass. The metal part needs a lot of work, it sounds dull. The way you're singing( talking ) sounds stupid to me, don't restrict your voice to normal talking volume, actual shouting sounds a lot better than that. Transition to the rap sounded like it was forced, from my experience fade-in to another section doesn't usually work. The rap was brilliant, very chill and relaxed. I liked the additional stuff( computer beeps when he reboots and everything ). This time, the transition worked, it feeled like it was still the same song but a different part. By the way, what kind of setup do you have for the bright acoustic guitar? The chords in the beginning sounded so clear and bright :allears:
Hmm, I wonder what bass I used to record. One of my basses has a messed up intonation that I'm finding hard to fix. I know my guitars were in tune. I should probably rerecord the guitar to the metal part, probably have two or three tracks to make it sound fuller. I'll try singing it as well, I think I was going softer because the guitar wasn't all that loud. But yeah, the transition should probably be a bit more natural. Let's see, for the guitars at the beginning, I've got one electric guitar panned to the right on a clean setting and bridge pickup, another one panned to the left with a different clean setting and neck pickup, and the third guitar is a acoustic that I recorded vocal mic and that is panned to the center.

Well what I was thinking was that the two electrics would give enough tone to make it sound really full, and the acoustic in the middle would give it the clarity. Also I believe I pointed the mic towards the bridge more so the treble would come through. If you are talking about the very first part then it was actually just my electric on a clean setting.

Mexican Strat.
American Deluxe right here :rock: Too bad I don't play it more often
[url]http://www.mediafire.com/file/zwynyiyzbqg/demo#1.mp3[/url] I was going for a sound that resembles Skinny Puppy and new generation EBM, in a way. Also, I was going for a minimal sound, but added on. It is un-mastered, so I'd like any criticism I could get as I am new to mastering.
[QUOTE=CorpseRida;23011489]It is un-mastered, so I'd like any criticism I could get as I am new to mastering.[/QUOTE] Drums sound thin :saddowns:. But maybe that was what you were going for. Nice song otherwise. [url]http://soundcloud.com/kylpyamme/f-lydian-chill#[/url] My attempt at a song that's supposed to be all relaxed and chill :v: Criticism is appreciated. Also it isn't finished yet. The actual melody is not permanent and I plan to change some parts of it.

[url]http://soundcloud.com/kylpyamme/f-lydian-chill#[/url] [/QUOTE] What do you mean by "thin?" They were meant to be more minimal, but what would you suggest doing in terms of the produced sound? Also, your link takes me to an "oops" page.
i posted a thread and then someone bumped this thread so anyway here: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=962383[/url]
The drums in the song take up mostly the upper frequencies. No lower ones. This isn't a problem with certain drum sounds like the high hat, but the kick drum and snare don't sound right without some lower frequencies. It's alright to have the drums be minimalistic, but you still want some lows and mids, otherwise it sound thin and dry. I do like the bass in the song. In most electronic songs I hear the only bass I hear is the kick drum ever other beat. [QUOTE=pyrofiliac;23018081]i posted a thread and then someone bumped this thread so anyway here: [url]http://www.facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=962383[/url][/QUOTE] Sounded pretty good. There was some noise at the beginning and I think that there could be some tweaking to make the instruments stick together more, but overall a good mix. I think it could use some more on the low end. I think I can hear a bass in the song but I'm not sure, if there is then you are probably taking too much of the lower frequencies on it.

[QUOTE=CorpseRida;23018715]Would you suggest adding more low and mid end to the eq of the kick and snare?[/QUOTE] Yes. There are tutorials on youtube about how to get good drum sounds. [editline]09:22PM[/editline] [QUOTE=pyrofiliac;23019340]there's no bass[/QUOTE] It would be good to add one, give it some lower range. If you don't have a bass and want a bass part I would be willing to record a bass part for you.
[QUOTE=pyrofiliac;23019340]there's no bass[/QUOTE] Are you using built in speakers? I have a bass running through and I can hear it perfectly fine. Plug in a pair of headphones.
