I respect the hard work you clearly put into this. The vocals at first were kind of off, but then got better as the song progressed. I think the main problem with this song is the mastering. I understand it can be VERY annoying and difficult to master a song. Sometimes it takes years before an artist understands how to properly do it. I would strongly recommend taking your mastering questions to the aduio forums. You need a bit more depth in here with less clipping on those high hats. Youve got great style though. Keep up the hard work and next time get a professional to record your performance.
I'm'a reply to dis hurr thang. To begin, the vocals were MEANT to sound off at some parts. I know what I'm doing in the mixing (as you say, "mastering") department, the problem was that I didn't have enough time to do it right. There's no clipping on the high-hats, so I have no idea what you mean, they're just loud as fuck, so your headset might need replacing, unless .mp3 made it clip.
You see, what I needed to do was layer the instruments, equalize the fuck out of the vocals, fix the percussion, do the vocals with a better microphone, do more with panning the choir vox and take more time to do all this. I really just didn't have enough time before the deadline (I scrapped my original song and started a new one), so, rather than being a loser and not submitting anything, I decided to just go ahead and submit an incomplete song.
I know what I have to do to make it sound better, but the vocals have to stay virtually the same, since I can't do too much using a PC headset mic. Another thing is that this is electronic music. I'm still getting my kicks with this stuff as it's more difficult/tedious to control velocity, timbre and other such things than it is when I'm playing guitar or saz. That being said, it takes me longer to fool with it than it should.
Also, there's no way I'm letting a, "professional," mix experimental music. I'd be on his back with a scythe the entire time he'd be doing it.
In any case, thanks for reviewing my song.
Does anyone see any other errors? I did, afterall, post thi after 8 hours of work at 6AM lol.
Yup, "aduio," "afterall," "Youve," and, "thi". (lolololol)
