Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Hi Chris,
I can only speak for myself on this, but I keep all my stuff copyrighted, and I own the rights to it all. These days, one can copyright any group of songs as a 'compilation' the same as copyrighting one song, at the same small fee ($30 currently). As far as posting some of my originals here, the way I see it, owning my own music gives me the right to present it any way I want, including to this limited forum of fellow artists. But also, if my music were promoted, distributed, and sold without my permission, I have a right to sue for any money (and more) that it may generate.
I am currently collecting writer's royalties from 4 dist. sources, and I understand how it works. But, I also think it's healthy to 'audition' stuff to fellow artists, writers, engineers, etc. These guys are not your girlfriend, family, or your mama, telling you you're a misunderstood genius... instead, they hear exactly what you're doing, so it makes one strive and become better at it. It has me, anyway. So I think it's creatively healthy, that's all.
thanks, Roy

Hey Matt,
I liked your mix. I agree with Roy - you could boost a little bass - I liked the highs, personally.
Good job.

Here's a mix I just finished for a 70's influenced band whose album I'm mixing:

Keep Me Waiting

that's a great sound. real nice and warm and natural sounding. good guitar tones.

Here's a track from an EP thingy my band recorded:

The Reason

edit: i realized this one is more interesting from a "production" standpoint:

Ready To Talk
you can probably skip to around 2:30 if you just want hear the dynamic shifts and things. we started getting tricky around 3:30.

We did it in our practice space with a borrowed 001. The guy we borrowed the 001 from "helped" us for a while, which meant he messed with EQ and levels on the console WHILE we were tracking. it made mixing a nightmare. also we had no clue what we were doing. it was the first time we'd ever used pro tools or even really tried to record anything.

so be gentle.

Re: Mac Mixes!!!!!!!!
 
I had this melody in my head and managed to record it before I forgot it. The memory ain't what it used to be, but then again I don't remember what it used to be !

I hope you enjoy.

thomsbrain,
You guys did a great job considering the conditions you mentioned...These are good songs, man...interesting, refreshing arrangements. Couldn't understand the lyrics on some parts (like the choruses of 'The Reason'), but I think if these were remixed in better conditions, it would bring out what great songs they are. Good writing, IMO.
thanks, Roy

And yet another song. But this is a funny one. We where tracking, but the bassplayer had to leave early. And since we where setup to record drums we decided to record this track as a guide. So only the drums are ment for real.

The vocals are done through a Shure SM58 Beta, and the guitar is done with amplitube through a DI (to make it possible for him to play along with the drums. The singer was just outside the trackingroom, and could peek in through a glass window.

I posted it because to me it sounds funny like it is, and i like the open acoustic sound of it.

This singer is amazing. He only starting singing for about 6 months ago....

We plan on redoing the guitar and the vocals...

Good job on the mix, sir Bastiaan.

Yeah, this was a good sounding tune, I was especially impressed with the drums, that's what jumped out at me as being very pro sounding and musical.
The vox were great too.

Man I wish I had access to a drummer, I'm sick of loops. Someday,.
