    Within this thread, feel free to post the sonic things you are working on. Personally, I'd love to hear all the gory details about what went into each piece, but a simple link would be more than enough.

    I can host your songs if you don't know where to put them, just send them to my gmail account (same as this username).

    Here's one I made this afternoon:

    I tried to keep an open mind while listening to that, but gees, that's pretty full on. What 'genre' do you call that?

    Started out as an acoustic 2 years ago. Then just last month I was listening to the very first demo I had recorded of it, which i had used electric guitar, then I realised how good it could sound.

    I then recorded the above.

    Drums - Fruity loops using random samples
    Guitars - DI'ed through GR3
    Bass - DI'ed through my Joe Meek twinq mic pre(works as an excellent bass DI, the eq on that thing is fantastic for bass)
    Vocals - Rode NT1a through Joe Meek twinq

    Everything played by me, and arranged by me. Lyrics written by my friend

    Anything's fine but if you're posting your band it would be good to also post what your personal contribution was.

    Good stuff there :p. The guitar tone on the solo could be tweaked a bit. Revalver is good for that sort of sound actually, just make sure you turn the ultra quality mode on (its off by default)

    This is too short! I like the mix. And I like to know more about how you made this. I'm learning about home recording and finding out about what makes what sound is helpful for me and others.

    I just thought it would be good to record that song. I don't think genres are important to song writers! (even though I'm a very crap one)

    This sounds pro all the way, to me. That Joe Meek thing has a good clarity about it. I've never used a clear pre-amp before, only 'character' ones!
    Now I would just like to know more about what went into this production if you will? :)


    How I made mine (forgot this part in OP!)...

    INSTRUMENTS
    Prophet '08
    Deluxe Telecaster
    Yamaha violin
    Wine bottle cap

    GEAR
    Marshall
    JMP-1
    Rode NTK (mic)
    Yamaha AW1600 (rec)
    '70 fuzz pedal
    Fulltone Clyde Wah
    Great River ME-1NV
    Yamaha SPX90II fx rack
    Zoom FX fx rack
    Lexicon MX200 fx rack

    I recorded the synth to a click track, as this was my inspiration. Basically, I played a minor chord but a major melody. I dialed up a clean Marshall sound and used this (doubled) to fill in some spaces of the synth. I also recorded my finger nail scraping the ripples of a wine bottle cap. This was done REALLY close to the mic. I also recorded the first violin part (I can't actually play it yet!)
    After that, I mixed down to a stereo track because I'd run out of tracks. The stereo was flown back in and I added a few more violins and a lead guitar track. The lead guitar used the fuzz and the wah, both on full. :)

    The stuff I've done is up at http://www.lazygenetheory.com although it's 4 years old now and some of the files seem a bit dodgy. I've got a few half finished things in the works ATM.

    We probably have almost enough new posters to make it worth posting my old band again. Really shows how long I've been waiting for this new one to get it together.

    To fully appreciate this, I think you needed to listen to it in 1967, in the smokey lounge room of the twin sisters who hitched with you into San Francisco so you could see Jefferson Airplane and The Grateful Dead play to the Flower Children, before hopping back into the combi for more free love and free drugs... man.

    I couldn't find any music there, although I didn't dig too hard. I'll have a better look when I have a little more time mate.






    LOL... There was maybe a glass of grey label involved, but nothing harder! I hope this means you liked it??? LOL




    I really like that! It just sounds nice to listen to. Thanks for sharing.




    That rocked! Very original sound you fellas have too, IMHO. Good luck with getting it back together again, yous have some good music to make.

    I enjoyed the music more than the politics, that's for sure.

    Looks like we're back together. Songwriter has had his spirit broken, singer is taking lessons.
