When you make a song in garage band, make sure to pay attention to those little red dots next to the track descriptions. Those let you know when you need to EQ you're work lower. When stuff gets too loud, it clips (at 00:58 it clips BIG time.) If you want to accent stuff, try to lower the tracks that surround the lead. Also, you should always keep in mind how loud the master volume is. You see that lone volume indicator right above the midi creator, right next to the tempo device and right below the track editor? Try to keep the volume here as close to the yellow as possible.
Also, the guitars in garage band are all right if you know how to get the right sound out of them. What I like to do when I pull out the guitar is change the amp sim effect to the british overdrive. I feel like that sound is a little more true. Then, I'll turn off the echo and turn up the reverb. Dunno, it's just prefrence. Also, chords suck. Never play chords using the electric guitar preset, something I don't think you did anyways. meh.
You're melodies are great. I love them. You obviously play music outside of garage band. If there's really one thing I'd say work on, it's mastering, the drums were horribly mixed. If you ever want to colaborate, I can help you with the drums. I use garage band and I'm a drummer :P
GARG, I HATE MASTERING IN GARAGEBAND! GAHADFKJASDLFJA
lol, thanks for the uber feedback my man. Actually, in regard to chords, if you write fifths, or simple two note intervals, the guitar doesn't sound so bad, but actually writing what a guitar would normally definatley does. Yes I do play music outside, and compose traditionally. This was just a fun piece I through together to see if I could, sort of like a timed writing. But, Mastering i really need to work on!
I like it. Starts of really simple and gets better and better as it goes along, still feels like it's missing somekind of heavy finalé though, keep up the good work!
either it's the crappy toplap I'm on now or stuff clips majorly when the big kick drum is introduces.
piano work is lovely, but the synthy guitar and drums drag the enjoyment I got outta it by quite a bunch. I think it's do better as an all-piano piece. Putting a bit more lenght and variation into it wouldn't hurt either
I think this is good composition, but one of the drums is too loud.
Good work. Do more!
Loving the beat and flow to this. The melody is pretty awesome also. It just goes on and the guitar kinda comes in.. but at 59 seconds the heavy kick drum causes some clipping in the song. May want to fix that! Its a good song! gonna wanna master it some!
Hey, thnx for the info. Imma gonna go and master it right now.
