Cheers zim :xx:



just keep trying new things, it's all experimentation. I'll add this to the 'expand and finish' pile :redneck:



if I can manage to write some lyrics I'm gonna record a death metal track that I've had in the works for about 2 or 3 god damned years. I suck at finishing shit.

Mastering is really important in FL studio. On the master track, boost the overall sound with the FL overdrive plugin coupled with some EQ (use two EQs - one to find the perfect overall sound you like and another to kill the very top and bottom levels to avoid peaking)



The main reason for FL's muddiness is it's low volume output.

Serious Beak have finished writing 1 new song which goes for something like 15mins and have started on a new song which could be described as "Danny Gatton goes Doom/grind".



aiming for more ASAP - just hard sometimes with 2 of us with kids, and 1 with his Mrs up-the-duff & other shits/work/study going on.

Track I've been working on somewhat more seriously. Contains a sample from that Tunak Tunak Tun hard-on bearer and an Akercocke track, pretty random, but sounding cool.



Mainly using it for practicing getting more creative with break beats. Also, need to start practicing making better bass lines/sound.

I'm in a band by myself (no, it's not black metal) called Treeweaver. The link to the bandcamp page is in my signature. I have a demo and I'm writing a full album right now, which is over half way done. There is a preview song up on the page right now but it doesn't have any vocals, just drums and guitar. I play guitar but I use Drumkit from Hell to program drums because I don't have the ability, physical space, or cash for a drum set and I don't know anyone who plays drums.

You need to work on your production, mang. How are you recording your guitars and what are you using to mix?

I'm using a webcam microphone right now - I don't really have any other options than that aside from doing a line-in recording, and I don't like the tone I get from doing that. I use Audacity to mix everything together and I use Reaper along with Drumkit from Hell to make the drum parts.



I'm working with a pretty bare bones set up, I know - but I don't have much else to work with at the moment.



Thank you for listening by the way!

Yeah I've needed some new guitar stuff for a while. I've had the same one for three years. I actually had to get it repaired this past week - the input jack got all fucked up. :(



Thank you though, I appreciate the comments. :)



EDIT: I actually just uploaded a version of that song with different production so if you see this and choose to listen to the updated version I'd love to hear more opinions.

I think the recording quality is good, lends it a dungeon-y character. Not everything has to be sterile and produced to perfection.

From a gig about a month back.

A tune I wrote, that was originally done as part of my remix project and worked it for this band.

http://www.amfrequencies.com/blog/2013/05/gramafone-stash-hr-re-fleshed-volume-6/



and another track from the same gig - I wrote this song in about 1999.

It only now managed to see the light of day.

Just an easy little bluesy shuffle thing.
