Re: Laser Tag (Failed Video Game Theme)

Very nice track! The sounds are well chosen and balanced. Changes are enough to keep interest through the piece. And I love the guitar! That was just what the composition needed.

Re: Love Songs - The Argent Grub (made with Ardour)

Nice vintage punk sound. Reminds me of early Joy Division, complete with undecipherable lyrics. Except that you sing in tune. :)

Re: Do you find it hard to work on more than one recording at a time?

I often have a handful of things cooking at the same time, but usually most are on the backburner. Right now I have three recordings started, but only one has seen progress in the last 6 weeks. I have a queue of songs that I want to start when these are done. I tend to work on songs "offline" with j...

Vocals sometimes are the hardest part.
Agreed! The human voice is a deceptively difficult instrument to learn.

Re: Mind Cavern

The drum track is Tom's finger drumming the Roland FA-06, using one of the stock drum samples on the synth. I received it as a single stereo track, and I don't recall putting any effects on that track. I could have used a multiband compressor, I suppose, to bring out the bass frequencies. Also, no h...

Re: Mind Cavern

Milo, Great song! I loved the harmonies, it's not common to hear these kind of harmonies in mainstream music today. The arrangement sounds great too, the piano leads the song but the guitar parts and percussion fits very well. I liked the way the drums were mixed, kind of low and not so loud. Great...

Thanks for listening! I have grown more and more fond of this song since we finished the recording.

Re: Garden Realities (binaural soundscape)

I'm curious to know more about your workflow. How did you make the field recordings? Were the original field recordings in mono or stereo? Did you use any spatial effects plugins, like stereo wideners, echo delay, etc? The result sounds very convincing in headphones.

Re: Cloud castles (melodic electro)

Nice, interesting piece. I could hear this as a game soundtrack. I like the symphonic sounds over a danceable beat. I'm not familiar with the scene you were aiming for, but I like where you landed with this.

Re: Hammond Fried Eggs (feat. Dave Williams)

Nice jam! Sounds like it was a lot of fun to play and record.

I love the Black Pearl kit samples. Did you use the AVL Drumkits LV2, or Hydrogen?

Re: On The Road Again (Blues)

This song was new to me, so I didn't come to the listening experience with any expectations. It reminds me of the early British rock adaptations of blue songs - not quite the gritty American originals but something new and quite different, and good in their own way. My only critique is that it seems...
