Inktober #1 - Run

Author Comments

I'm back y'all! And Inktober starts again. Third times the charm. Though just thirst and no calm. I come surging from the farm North and just burst in. Alarm! I've forgotten all my mixing and my voice is lost in distance but with poise and choice persistence as a ploy employs a vision boys (and girls) come on and join and sit in. Twenty twenty one. Inktober. Has begun.

Not totally happy with the vocal quality as usual but... I'll get back to it. Let's have some music.

And thank ya @larrynachos for this beat that's too sick. ;)

Great rhymes and sound - they blend in and complement each other perfectly. You can hear the vocals well. You guys rock as usual!

Cyberdevil responds:

Much appreciated man! :) Glad you had time to check in here too!

Loving this one <3

Cyberdevil responds:

Thank ya man. Figured this might be a bit more your style. :) If you want to try something again this year I'm all ears too! Could use a bit more attitude.

That was way better quality than I was expecting! I think the vocals aren't bad at all, of course there is almost always room to improve, but as is it's pretty good.

Cyberdevil responds:

Thank you PoopaTroopa. :) Probably set the bar way too high for just the first, but ah well, shall hopefully just keep improving!

YEEESS!!! And so another year begins! Solid start CyberD and lovely backing larrynachos! Amazing tension! Looking forward to what's to come this month (and hopefully throwing some jams your way again CD)! Setting those standards high from the start!

Cyberdevil responds:

The pressure's definitely on after this. XD Wonder if I can keep the bar this high hmm, but thank you! Very much looking forward to those jams!

You know, as much as you say you aren't happy with the vocal quality, despite some muddyness on adlibs, the overall quality is improving by leaps and bounds with each year that goes by. Your flows are becoming more and more refined. I think if you were just a bit more selective with your chopping vocals, pare down the track number just a bit, or perhaps have one lead center vocal that's nice and clean, and apply a chorus, eventually you'll get results. Keep experimenting.

The mid is just a bit heavy on the vocal, making it sound just a little nasal, but it's not overly sibilant from what I can hear on laptop speakers. Try some EQ play and compression -- by the way, check my latest post, some vocal processing freebies are on there.

Glad to see you still at it as always. Keep it up!

Cyberdevil responds:

Hey thank you ADR3-N, good to get an outside perspective on things; hear that I am actually getting somewhere. Yeah I gotta master the chopping, though it felt like the muddiness worked pretty well with the beat in this particular case sometimes, especially towards the end. More so feel I didn't manage the right tone and all, voice strains too quick, but that should get better.

Hmm I totally forgot the EQ advice I picked up last year!!! Thanks for that reminder! I'll check out that post too.

Always. :) Thank ya very much for stopping by for the premiere; dropping all this very useful feedback no less!
