Re: QT, .mp3\'s ready DL & Streaming URL BELOW ;)

a bunch of cool stuff here, Marcus cool song, very nice recording.

"mouthful" is a cool song, very good quality in the recording. I'm guessing both you guys have some nice mics and pres to work with.

Man, my kingdom for a real drummer. The loops are just not doing it for me any more. Roy, as to your earlier question, I don't use reason, the drums on my last tune were just the free mp3 files from reeldrums.com which I cut up a little bit.

Also, editor, your stuff is very cool. "i think I'm listening to "tommy boy", it comes up as 'track07' in my mp3 player.

Flipping thru the 'series six' piece, some great stuff there. Nice grooves.

keep em coming,

great sound.

Country songs...

I Think I read somewhere you are from TN. and, if so you might be a country music fan. I wrote a country song called wishing well. Almost all of my friends say its the best song I have ever written. Its been in several B. Movies and got me a record deal, offered through a friend of mine, who hooked me up with some country music label, I don't even remember the name now, because I usually don't write in that style. I like all styles, I just usually write in a harder Alt. rock format... anyway give it a try at the URL below. Its an .mp3 called wishing well. Thanks for checking out what I am doing, ....later on.

Good recording quality, when all the guitars come in on the song (Death) at the peak of the song, I hear a bit of a fight between the cymbals, guitars and vox.

Thanks. It was recorded on INCREDIBLY modest gear. Yeah I hear what you're saying, I think this is caused by the MP3 compression more than anything else. The top end smear in the MP3 versions compared to the original 24-bit mixes is pretty noticable. I personally wanted the vocals louder but in an act of diplomacy with the rest of the band we compromised on the slightly louder than audible side. I would've argued more if these tracks were for formal release.


As I listen to it, it seems the band is centered around the drummer. For me I would like to see the vocal come in quicker. I thought it was a jazz instrumental for a long time, til' the vox came in.

Yeah the vocals are almost incidental, the arrangements are still getting worked on but we're not really striving for top 40 into the chorus in less than 20 seconds market


Just my 2/100th of a $, your miles may vary, IMHO, etc, etc...

Thanks for listening!

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

Very nice, man...this is the first thing I've heard from you, and I'm glad it's good.

haha .. thanks Roy, yes I know I can get very vocal and opinionated around here but I mostly know what i'm talking about


Vocals just a tad low on 'slices', but all else sounds great to me. Cool chords and time changes, all well executed. And of course, well recorded... good job, I would say.

Thanks again, yeah, as I replied to Editor the vocal level was a compromise between me and the other guys in the band. The MP3 compression also seems to fuzz the top end definition which made the vocals lose a bit of clarity and bite (they were placed carefully against the kit top end and the guitars).

Thanks for listening.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
I finally got a chance to listen... thanks for making the files more accessible. You have a unique style indeed, and I enjoyed listening. I really do like 'Wishing Well', and didn't even consider it limited to country (I'm in Memphis by the way, not Nashville). So other than vocals, do you play guitar on these, or what is your main instrument?
thanks, Roy

I have to sign up with SoundClick to listen, which I plan to do... sorry for the delay.
pk, can't wait to hear your new stuff.

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

Here's one for you to give a listen to. The song was recorded in one take except for the Odubbed vocals. The band was looking for a singer and did the track for a demo. The singer on that day didn't last, so this is the only time you'll hear this ensemble. ..... I thought I'd jump in with a take of a decent band in a 16X16 room (no iso booths here, it's just my personal space). Let me know what you think.


Hi Martin,
Sounds like under the conditions you described, you did a good job capturing these guys. If and when they find the 'right' singer, be sure and post some stuff for us to hear.
thanks, Roy
