  • new song...please comment

    Hi all,

    Well, I've finally done it: I got an mp3.com account. And now I need your
    opinions!

    I have completed my first "original" tune, called "Can't Stop", and I want
    to know what you folks think. I'm primarily looking for comments regarding
    the sound of it, production etc, not the songwriting. Any comments at all,
    however, will be appreciated. Please go take a listen and let me know what
    you think.
    www.mp3.com/Subtle_Nuance - the song (the only one there) is "Can't Stop"

    Thanks in advance for any comments!

          Well done ~redbrick~ , even if it's not my type of music . I assume you used your DSP FACYORY to record. I purchased one not to long ago but I am in the works of getting a music computer happening. Can't wait to start recording with my DSP FACTORY.

            I think it's a good recording with good levels and I think the drums and cymbals sound great. I would like the bass to sit up a teensy bit more and the toms to have a tad more depth, but I ALWAYS say that..

            Most excellent job!

                Thanks to all so far for the comments.

                Stevo: Not sold on the keys? What does that mean? The elec piano or the stuff at the beginning or the bass guitar?

                Just curious where YOU think I need to improve.

                It's interesting to me how many different people think different things. I have gotten everything from "I love the guitar" to "Get rid of the acoustic tone...it stinks" and "not conviced by the keys" to "I love the Rhodes sound" (not a Rhodes, it's a Wurli, I think, but whatever, it's just a passable elec-piano-like sound) and "The intro is really cool" to "That sound in the intro sucks...get a new one".

                This is why I post many different places for opinions. Each place will have it's own "flavor" of constructive criticism.

                Thanks again for the comments.

                PS. Yes it was all DSP Factory, SW1000xg, vdrums, real guitar, vocals, via Sonar sequencing. I DID use a Quadraverb for the chorus effect on the back vox, as I ran out on the dspf, but I could have done things 1000 different ways.

                  Clarification, I like the elec piano sound but it's the 1/4 and 1/8 note stabs during the verses that could be done differently. The guitars are already setting a bit of rhythm with that sort of feel. Perhaps the keys could be doing something different?
                  Don't get me wrong, I do like it. All done with the DSP too? Good effort!

                    A really good recording!

                    I liked the harmonies a lot. Very Boston-esque, real pretty.

                    I liked the switching on/off of the huge reverb on the snare too. It has inspired me to add that to a kit or two as a chain.

                    The drumming was nicely supportive and not overblown - the opposite of my tendencies! -and was really tight through all the transitions.

                    How did you record the song in regards to this?

                    Did you lay down a basic beat, add the other instruments, and then go back and play drums over them?

                    Or did you memorize the whole song in your head and just laid down the finished drum track?

                    Or some other way?


                    Anyway, kudos on a fine piece of work!
