I'm in the process of re-releasing some songs here on newgrounds from a demo I published a couple years ago on major platforms. Not really something I'm too proud of these days, but I figured I'd upload them onto here before I upload some new stuff coming out on April 16th.

So it goes.

0.36 -- Love the riser! Followed by the "Ooh!" Dunno why I tend to hyperfixate but I find that pretty unique, and I'll remember this song for that for sure.

Well I’m glad you liked that! Seemed like a subtle subversion of expectations, and I’m glad you appreciated it!

I was about to write this off, but your vocal mixing hooked me into the rest of the production. I think with just some taming on your sibilants, s and t and such, even if it's just manually lowering the volume so you don't have to spend money on a bunch of fancy programs to do it for you, that would help a lot.

Overall, your bass is just a little bit flat compared to the rest of the track, and your drums could stand to come out a few dB in the mix, but your structure is nice and strong, and you have an interesting chord progression. Nice work!

floorboardofficial responds:

YES hahahaha. I did NOTHING for sibilance control back then. The worst part is when they're not quantized properly and you get this unpleasent surprise ping-pong effect that just ruins the illusion of the overdubs. Anyways, in the years since I made this I've started doing exactly what you said and manually dealing with sibilants, but holy hell is it a time consuming pain in the ass cheek. Are there any "fancy programs" that you'd reccomend? I've tried a couple free de-essers here and there and frankly they were all pretty much unusable. I honestly wouldn't mind throwing down some cold hard money cash to save myself the pain.

But hey, thanks for the review! Much appreciated :)

Got some nice things going on here, calming and relaxing. I’m surprised this doesn’t get more attention.

floorboardofficial responds:

Thanks! I don't think I was scouted when I uploaded this, so that might have something to do with it, but honestly I'm surprised my old demos are getting even half the attention that they are.
