Feedback for my a capella/electro sound

Post by Dan Senseï » Tue Jun 15, 2010 1:20 pm

I have three songs that I posted so far, but you can comment mostly on the first track: Everything is Free. It's based on a poem by George Elliott Clarke.

I used my APC40 to help with the songwriting process (very handy!), a Golden Age Project Pre 73 + Edirol sound card, + a mix of a KEL condenser mic and a SURE standard 58.

I'd love to hear any feedback as to how I should tweak it. I'll use soundcloud for any future postings.

Thanks for the help!

This made me laugh! :D I don't like the reverb on the main vocals, though. It is too big of a room, and it detaches the vocals from the rest of the mix. There is way too much of it, too.

your drums are lost in the shuffle.. try to make them louder and vocals quieter. just try to find a nice balance between the two.

Both Groove and Jack make excellent points. I do like your idea though. Thanks for sharing and welcome Dan.

I love it till 1:40, but I think you should stick to the lo-fi style, and delete the synth and drums.

Very original :)

Wow! Thanks for all the comments.
Yeah, I'm definitely less experienced with synths then with my voice, but it's a learning process.
I'm going to try to do it again with louder drums and less reverb on my voice.
What a nice welcome!
