way, way behind on listening, all sorts of cool stuff.

groovilator, I listened to two tracks from your cd, very nice work, very nice performance. Great vox work, and guitar sounds. "get your face out of my space" is great!

captain, your pride in the drum programming is justified. I'd like to hear more about how you got your sound, especially about the triton.
I may be emailing you about that.
bp

autohypnosis, great sound. I don't know how much this has been covered, but I think the bass could have more punch, I don't know if that's a question of eq, volume, or what. I've simply doubled the bass track, used different eq and pan settings and had good results.
but a very cool piece.

EyeCBatty,
For this genre, I think it's great. Good job on the percussion and vocal. Are you shopping this?

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Hey Roy im glad you like..yeah im trying to shop this around...the Vocalist is my best friend and he produces the beat himself and i record and mix everything...he's not signed..right now we're just trying to produce some good stuff so we can have a good package...

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Hey BP..glad you liked it..those synths are actually from a Roland MC 909...its one of those new groove boxes with synths...everythin was tracked through my Mindprint DTC pre and compressor...

Re: Mac Mixes!!!!!!!!
 
Just wanted to post my new album for you guys to check out. All protools, done with Robby Takac (bassist of the goo goo dolls) and Marc Hunt. The album is called "Your Window" and you can check it out at http://www.navar.net .

Hope you dig it...tell me what you think!

bp,
Just heard 'talkawhile', and really enjoyed it...another good song. You have a likeable signature writing/vocal style that's very unique. On the mix itself, the acoustic is boomy in places, but the overall feel is great. Again, good song.

Here's my first post in this thread!

I have a new clip that I've been working on. It's not fully mixed, just levels and panning, but I think it sounds pretty good already.
Comments would be cool .
The song is called, The Vitiating Hour

groovilator,
I like 'Get your face outta my space', especially those verse parts. Good job on the production, and definitely on the vocals as usual. I like everything I've heard from you so far.
-Roy

groovilator 04-17-2004 03:49 AM

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Thanks Roy! I really appreciate that. Your comments (whether they would be compliments or criticism) really mean a lot considering the fact you're, like, a pro and stuff. And of course, the fact that your recordings are always just flat out awesomely cool!

thanks a lot Roy, glad you enjoyed it. As for the boominess in the guitar, I think I need to improve my monitoring evironment. I think I'm going to pick up some "mopads", maybe that will help. I'm going to revisit that tune to remix it in the next couple weeks, maybe even retrack the electric guitar which clips in a couple places.

thanks for the listen!!

Ok.... the Allenstein machine worked flawlessly! The new project is finished.

recorded and mixed on an 001!

We're actually getting some airplay with it. Thanks fellow DUCers. Let me know what you think.

Those tracks are great. Very Impressive.
Can you give us some more information on what other equipment you used? Mics, preamps, converters, plugins etc.
thanks

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Hot off the presses! I started this song Wednesday night and I'm almost done with it. By far a new record for me. Hopefully it's a sign I'm getting more efficient with PT and not a fluke. This is a bluesy one... People on the Streets

I'm going to add real drums in the bridge and last chorus now.

Keith Owens 04-17-2004 05:40 PM

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Micah,

this is one of the best tunes I have heard in a long time.
Hats off. Congratulations on a song well written and performed!

Keith

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Micah,
What a great song...('people on the streets')...cool chords, arrangement, great vocals, guitars...everything. I was afraid the chorus would jump into something typical, but it just got better. Excellent writing, IMO.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Here's one of the mixes of my band's live show from 4/9/04 that I'm just about done with.

Sorry it's not an original tune, but the key is that it was all done live onstage with PTLE, so I thought people might still be interested to hear it.

A cover of Steely Dan's "Peg"



FYI, Guitar: me, vocals & keys: Damon Mollenkopf, bass: Jason Monro, drums:, Cory Cisler.

AD Apogee Rosetta
DA Benchmark DAC-1

Kick-snare-most vocals-some bass-most electrics

~vintech Dual 72 (neve clone)- Emperical Labs Distressor

Overheads, toms, some bass some lead guitar

Micah, this is a really penetrating song. Every one of us thinks this exact same thing when we're driving around downtown. But I don't think any of us has actually written about it before. I know I haven't. This is very inspiring. I've seen your website, Micah and you know what? I like you, dude. Thanks for being who you are.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
telepc: Man, this is a great @#%&ing cover! I've always loved this song and while I listening to it I was imagining sitting in a bar listening to the band play it in front of me and I was totally impressed! If I ever happen to be passing through Ohio (like that'll happen soon )I definitely would wanna check you guys out. Really nice (surprising) licks in your solos. Loved it! BTW, were you playing a telecaster on that? Just wondering.

Thanks groovilator and Roy for the nice comments. And yes I was playing a Tele. Check out our website if you're interested in hearing more Tele licks over songs that are "supposed" to be played with a Strat:

Ahhhh, I'm very happy to see you list all that front end gear. If you had gotten that result with the stock Digi stuff I would have sold up and given the game away LOL.

What Mics did you use?

Congrats again on the tracks, they are very professional.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
MilesWonderland – Great job on the album!

AfricanCaneKing – You’ve got some cool grooves and good tracks but the only one that sounds complete is “Get It Right” because it actually has fully realized vocal tracks. In fact I really like the vocal arrangement and the string stuff was really cool too. Are the others still works in progress or are you just going for a minimalist vibe? To me they sound like foundation for something melodic or some creative rapping.

Mark – Pretty song. That you singing? (Just kidding ) Did you record this, play on it or what? Details, we must have details.!.!.!.! My only criticism on this is that the lead guitar is a little harsh for this track. Everything else is so lush and pretty I think a smoother, less effected sound might have worked better. But the playing was good !

eventually i will get the newer tracks recorded with vocals. i like to build up about 20 - 30 instrumentals then start writting songs to them with my people i work with here in miami.

ACK

Yeah, a bunch of great stuff.

hmt, I liked your piece, but it was tough to make the vocals. Nice tune and production otherwise.


Micah, MilesWonderland, AfricanCaneKing, all very nice work. Keep it up.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Thanks everybody for the flattering comments. I really appreciate it. I've put some ice on my head to keep the swelling down. I tracked some drums for the song Saturday night but after getting back to my studio I was unhappy with the recording, so I'll have to do them over again. (still a beginner at recording drums)

bp- thanks for replying to my first song post, you're the only one (tear).

groov- I've been to your site as well... and I like you too, buddy.

Micah777 04-19-2004 07:00 AM

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Telepc- I've listened to a lot of your stuff off your site. You have an extraordinary band. Your guy's got a great set of pipes. I'm very impressed with your live recording, what was your process? How did you get such great separation?

Hi Groov
Gee, I forgot I even had that link there. Thanks for listening.
No, I'm sorry, that's not me singing lead but I am doing one of the harmonies. I'm mainly the engineer and drum programer. (I don't think my current gear is up to doing justice to real drums, and I'm also not that good a player LOL)

I agree about the electric guitar. I don't mind the sound in the general body of the song, sort of adds something different, but the tone for the solo is way too harsh. Well probably redo it. It was tracked using a Vamp2 so that's why it sounds a bit brittle. I just got a nice preamp (Buzz Audio SSA1.1), so we might even try dusting off an amp and micing it up! Novel idea

We'll probably re-track the lead vocal too with the new preamp.

The acoustics are an Ibanez (???model) played into an MXL V67M through a Mindprint Envoice. Always seems to record very nicely. There's also a bit of Maton (Australian brand) 12string in there too.

The bass was tracked with a Behringer Bass Vamp Pro (the rack version). Then compressed with the Nomad Blue Tubes Comp (my favorite comp at the moment). I also had a panning phaser happening on the bass at one stage..... can't remember if that version has it or not.

Anyway... Thanks for listening. There are a few more tracks on that site if you're interested.

Ha Slink, some clean stuff. The mix sounds crisp and clear from here. The filter at first is nice but maybe a little strong, maybe not? I would be a little more subtle with the transition. Catchy goodfeel tune. Very electronica/pop style to me. Nice job.

My latest, this demo/beat tape explores creative beatmaking and acapella mixing to make a tasty beverage for y'all to sip on. Heavy on the bass, and lo-fi on purpose and a little ironic, this journy is a night out on the town with DJ CUPS. Rest up cause this night goes on until the next day.

Thanks Micah. I'm actually really impressed with the live recording too! It was the whole reason I took the PT dive, and it was totally worth it.

The separation is just good luck and them some editing on the vocal tracks. Basically, we only reinforce about 8 channels live--vocals, keys, guitars, bass, kick & snare, so those went first to the board and then to my rig from the board's direct outs. (Simple Spirit Folio 24 Ch board).

The other 8 or so tracks--more drums, the stereo feed of the keyboard, crowd mics, etc., went directly into the rig.

The rig: Digi 002R, Behringer ADA8000 (yes, believe it or not), Gateway M500 laptop, Seagate 160 Gb external HD.

The drummer has his own set of drum mics (AKG I believe). The bass was direct, the keyboard was direct (stereo), the guitar was miked with an SM57, and the singer and I had SM58s for our vocals.

In the editing and mixing process I made sure to eliminate the bleed through on the vocal mics whenever the singer (and I) weren't singing, which cleaned things up considerably.

Thanks for your interest and your kind words!

Each one of your tracks feels really good. Nice job...'Get Right' does indeed seem the most complete (with vocals), and I'm sure the others will turn out just as good.
