Waiting for

By leafo on January 10, 2016 11:49 pm

Wow, definitely forgot how to make music. This is my first serious attempt at singing for a song. Naturally I don't like how it sounds, so I covered my voice in effects. I also tried using this percpad thing to play drums, but I don't have a kick pedal for it so it wasn't that helpful. I was also reminded of how much I hate trying to master and mix. So much tweaking for such unsatisfactory results.

not too shabby for someone who's forgotten how to make music haha. I think the vocal effects work well, has a sort of shoegaze-y vibe. I'd just mix them a bit higher, maybe create a notch EQ (boost mid-highs on the voice, reduce that same frequency in the instruments). nice track overall though! excited to see what you cook up in the coming weeks.

Good song for a disappointment smile

This might not be what you had in mind, but it is a cool rock track, and worth working on, if you want to.  Digging the progression and the vocal melody.

Thanks for the tips, this year is definitely going to be me spending a lot of time figuring out how to mix vocals. Any resources are greatly appreciated.

Good stuff. I'd be interested to hear louder vocals.

Definitely a good start to the year! It's a little ram shackle sure - but in the best possible way. It makes me want to put on a Guided by Voices or Pavement record right now.
