It didn't sound half bad, and i enjoyed it. Except every now and again the harmony wasn't doing it for me. It would sound good then i was like whoa thats just completely off key.

I'm pretty sure thats how you meant it to be, but that was to me the big down side to the song. Too much dissonance for me.

Hey I was wondering like w/ my track earlier, I had 2 guitars for the rhythm each panned like 40% to each side. On the solo part though, I had it mono to both speakers, should I split it towards one side or?

I dunno i play with the panning so much that you can do alot with either way really. Doing the mono style really isn't that bad of an idea. Granted what you could do is.. track record two different guitars doing the rhythm on both sides and having the solo in the middle. I've done this a few times. I'm actually doing this write now as i write this. But often times in the past what i'll do is.. just have about 35% on each side with one being rhythm and the other being the solo.. So it just kind of cuts through a lil better.

Bet as for yours it actually doesn't sound that bad how it is.

Yea, i could probably point the bits where the harmony is shite... i'm fixing it, just couldn't be bothered then :)

Here's a track I recorded for my senior project. I admit it's not too good, but I got an A on though, but maybe that shows how much effort it requires to pass highschool. As you can hear, alot of the later sections are way off time, and the vocals are far from perfect.

I did the same fucking thing haha. Although my song was about the WTO (world trade organization) and was a punk song hah. But i dunno its kind of hard for somebody else to give you a harsh grade on a style of music that they may not like.

As for you're song. I actually liked it. I'm not that big on death metal but it didn't sound half bad. Granted the guitars were an eq nightmare but everything together wasn't bad. Decient sounding drums. And the lil end slow down i will admit was pretty fucking awesome. imo

I'll have to steal that idea and maybe incorporate it somehow.

Not a death metal fan but i liked it.

Thanks dude. Yeah, the guitars were purposely EQ'ed to scoop because I didn't want my off time riffs showing up. But yeah, I had fun recording it, and thats really all that matters if school is involved.

Hi guys

I've been coming to your site for the last year or so and I have learned a lot
from u guys. From picking techniques to recording. So I think the time has come
to show off what I've learned and what I can do.

You can listen to the song here


The solo isnt very good, but that's cuz I'm not that skilled... yet!

Equipment used to record and mix:

Jackson RR3
Creative X-fi Platinum soundcard
Zoom GFX5 (yeah yeah I know)

Fruity loops for the drums (thnx vileangelofdeth for the manytone tip)
Magix Music Studio6 for all the mixing.


All Critisizm is welcome exept for lame ass comments like 'u suck' or something.

Sythke21 2006-05-27 03:44

just listened to it lord_behemoth, im personally not a huge fan of black metal, but i think what youve done is pretty damn cool, i really like your tone, and the drums fit very well, the solos sounds good, although the song sort of ends abrubtly. but i like :D

*insert name here* 2006-05-27 04:31

u suk

Sythke21 2006-05-27 05:03

*insert_name_here* your not even funny, go away you loser.

While im flaming, ive come to post a sound clip based on what u guys said last time to fix my recording quality up.

last time u guys said my sound was very muddy, and needed more treble, ive also made guitar 1, and guitar 2, sound out over different speakers. i think it sounds quite a bit improved.

could u guys give it a listen, its the Raining Blood one (i know the triplets are out of time)

thanks.

Sythke21 2006-05-27 19:19

sounds good cyber waste, really clean playing and everyhing sounds perfect, but i dont think it sounds heavy enough though, a little to light, maybe recorded another track over it?

I agree with what was said before. I'm not the biggest black metal guy but i actually really liked this song/recording. The hi hat was pretty annoying though. i must say. Basically sounded completely out of..... place with the entire song.

I want to hear vocals too. :)

I fucking quit!
Nah i have no idea what song this is either. :p

Drums definately need to be a lil more defined and louder sounding. Guitars were a lil too dominate.

I dissagree with you Sythke21. I kind of liked the tone/sound of the guitars.

Song needs some bass for sure. Would smoothen the sound out quite a bit.

Not bad though.

thanks.


I did a comparison between the actual slayer song tone and you'res. Not bad. Pretty key on. You definately are still lacking the higher highs. You don't need alot but you definately need some. Might be a good idea to lower the volume abit, to prevent unneeded distortion. Might want to slightly curb some of the bass freqs in a final product.

But overall i thought it was pretty solid. Not bad. What setup are you using to record?
