The official "LISTEN TO MY RECORDINGS" thread.

now stop whinning and bitching.

post clips, discuss techniques, yada yada.... try to keep it on topic and avoid personal attacks.. if someone's clip suck balls in your opinion, go ahead and state your opinion, but don't let it get out of hand or i will regulate on your punk asses.

I found it to not be too bad. A few notes of crtique.

Definately need to redo the eq all together, i mean everything needs to shifted more towards the highs mostly because it comes out muddy. I mean It sounds like it could be decient as long as there were balance of a full range on the spectrum of freqs.

Next i dont' remember off hand, but when like... mid way it switches from one... riff or whatever to another one. One you don't hear in the beginning.. (its a big switch) Its a good switch other then the fact that the music literally stops for like .5 seconds and throws the listener off, in a seemingly unpleasant and confusing way. If you could just work the timing on that change it would actually be a really good change.

Overall i enjoyed the recording other than the nit picking things i noticed.


Edit: I probably need to put this in since i didn't realize this until after i posted. I guess this is a cover of the song. I actually haven't heard the song but it sounded pretty decient.

Thanks, i know it was far from perfect, i was pretty hasty last night to finish it, as it was late and needed some sleep.

Ive just gotten a new amp (roland cube 30) less then a week ago, so im still strugging to set my EQs to something im pleased with. this recording was done with bass 6, middle 10, treble 6.

i think the obvious problems where, the timing, the tapping sounded average, the 2nd interlude didnt sound quite right, and the solo went out of tune.
thanks for criting tho.

Somehow i thought so haha. Not too bad Granted you're not gonna get the best prime sound doing it that way (obviously).

But oh well, not bad.

PFFFFF. haha i don't know who told you wrong. But thats the BEST way to record. You get somewhat accurate representations of what the sound actually sounds like, moreover some emulated sound. I have heard of people using both direct out and recording it, but i have yet to do this, and dont' really see myself trying it.

Getting a decient mic/condenser mic and a preamp teamed up with decient mic placement can do some wonders.

You must have missed the point of this in an earlier thread last week. Guitar forum is for GUITAR. Point being that if you want to have more than you're cool riffs and guitar playing judged and critqued.. i.e. recording quality, microphone use, and what not and what not, (this is clearly a GEAR oriented and music production oriented) you would come here.

Which makes perfect sense if you ask me.

Yea, well i suggest you channel your 2 guitar tracks (if thats what you got there...) left and right instead of having some muddy mono guitar sound. The drums are barely audible (turn them up) and well... thats about all there was... The filler riff was pretty "bendy" sounding and off time. keep trying, and use the tips we gave you to make some better stuff.

Not bad not bad. I actually haven't heard a pod recording before. I've never even really seem em. Doesn't sound too bad. Probably should split the tracks up at least a little bit.

I thought it was a pretty decient recording. Probably could use a lil more mid on the bass drum to define it a little more. But its not a bad sounding kit.

ok cool thanks, i made the drums quieter on purpose, because they sound a bit dodgy, just being a midi file extracted from guitar pro, and ill definetly try putting guitar 1 on left, and other on right.

Track by myself (4.1MB). Recorded using my POD, through the poweramp of my Laney (tube), then into my 'custom' open backed 2x12 and recorded with an SM57 into a behringer mixer. Hasn't turned out too badly, not perfect by any means, but im quite happy with it
