Well, ummm, at least it's my most freaky progressive djentyish creation so far. Like or not like?

Once you finish what you think is definitely your best and most mature song so far, and you upload it to the world your unspoken assumption that they will all take notice is of course always shattered Smile

Anyone? Smile

been there. i´ve had a couple of songs i thought would hit like a bomb and nothing, not even a wet fart. that said, the song is good but not as special as you make it out to be with the title of this thread. but don´t let that get you down. if anything it slaps you right back to reality and makes you work harder.

the song is cool. sadly the mix just doesn't hit well. the guitars are very week if you ask me when they should be making you think "Holly shit" once they kick in.

you should consider printing the raw files for people to have as "mix practice". I think that would be beneficial to the community here. its a killer song composition wise and with the community is always asking questions about production. so everyone having the same files would make it easier for the more experienced guys to share their knowledge in a more practical way. also would give you more mix's to hear and compare to.

Just an idea, I my self will gladly mix this song for free for the benefit of this community gaining more knowledge and experience.

I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL!

i thought one of my songs would take the internet by storm, that people would look past the crappy production and just listen for the melodies. now i know better. im gonna have to redo the whole production on my new setup.

i really do like this song but it has the same problem. to me, music is all sonic communication meant to stimulate emotions. for that to happen all the pieces have to be there melodically, rhythmically, compositionally, aesthetically and production must be good as well. I think opening this song to the public to mix is a great idea, you never know where some of us will take a song like this. plus joey offered to mix it for free, i'd do it. but don't for the free mixing, do it for got-djent.

-sincerely, someone who liked your song.

Hi Joey, that sounds like a plan! You're on Wink

I need to put some effort in splitting the (SD2.0 with DFH EZX) drum tracks into separate tracks, but that that can be done I think. I've done it before once.

I assume you want the raw tracks without any effects etc?

Yes, and of course anyone is allowed to mix it. And yes, of course, I would welcome the educational character of such a public mixing class! I am not that good at recording, mixing etc so I am very keen on learning in this area.

yep that's exactly what I mean by raw. unless said effects are important to the sound. such like some odd sounds and such. all EQ, delay, verb, compression and what not should be removed when bouncing.

Let me know once you have the files and I'll start a new thread. that or you can start the thread. I think a new one will be a lot easier for what we're going to use it for.

how about a general thread where people can put their tracks and everybody can download, mix and upload it to? not sure what i´d call it, though. 'educational sample mixes'? but i see another sticky ahead Big smile
