9-2-5 Routine


Author Comments

Had a week late start due to some misunderstanding. It's totally my fault. But here it is. Mostly done, probably going to spend more time mixing and mastering later. All the vocals and the guitar were recorded by yours truly. Hope you guys enjoy this. Let me know what you think about it.

I like the relaxed, bright mood at the beginning. The snare sample at :08 wasn’t my favorite. It might have a tad too much treble for my tastes. I also think the piece could use more bass in general at times. The texture at :33 has a nice and refreshing vibe, and overall I really like the melodic sections of the piece and the glitchy rhythmic details. The piece gets a tad repetitive towards the end, and probably needed some more variety on some of the main riffs to hit it home. Some more structuring might also work well, as it’s relatively short right now and lacks a full-length breakdown or bridge. Still, the sound design is really fun here, and I’m enjoying the mixing and melodies as well. Keep at it, icantpronouncethis! :)

Wow you have such a cool and unique style. Super neat stuff

icantpronouncethis responds:

Thanks a bunch. I'm still tweaking a few things right now. Hopefully it can sound a bit more cleaner next month.

Love your style. Your quirkiness works so well, and yes midimachine is right on about the guitar. I'm a fan. We need more originality like this in the world.

Thanks for checking it out. Even though the deadline for NGADM 2019 is over, I realize there's a lot of tinkering I have to do. Already made a list to add/fix for this track. Cant wait.

sounds like u got some mastering tips from some idiot recently :^)
the octaved guitar sounds so hot! love this style

icantpronouncethis responds:

thanks so much for that. Still needs some tweaking for sure, like the kick seems a bit too loud and I want to emphasize the mids a bit more towards the end. Just had to finish up what I had before the deadline.
