    * Welcome to the MacRumors Studio *
    [​IMG]

    We want to hear your TUNES!!!

    This is a comfy cozy place where we can share
    our own music creations with fellow musicians
    and accept constructive criticism warmly.

    For fun lets judge each song in 4 categories.

    1 - Originality - 1
    2 - Technical - 2
    3 - Catchiness - 3
    4 - Overall - 4


    We'll use the emotions to represent 1(low)-5(high)
    for each category,
    1=:mad: it's Bad
    2=:( it's ok
    3=:) it's good
    4=:D it's Great
    5=:eek: it's AWESOME!!!

    Example:
    "You Rock My World" -Micheal Jackson
    I didn't care for it but have to give it credit from a technical stand point and
    the overall catchiness.
    :mad: :( :) :mad:

    So, Lets get Started !!!


    * If you have no way of uploading your songs

    what the hell.

    Rain

    this was recorded (iirc) in 1994, by my old band Shovel Choir in our old basement studio. i'm the keyboardist. we pulled this off the original 8-track tape a couple months ago and did this roughmix.

    enjoy.

    Ida B. Wells

    this is my current "band" (actually more of a recording project), Box Set Authentic. we recorded this in my house a couple years ago. it's another rough mix (we're kinda bad at finishing things). i played the keys and did the mix.

    btw -- the song name in the mp3 tag won't match, we've changed the name

    cool...

    very neat, atmospheric and dissonant. I'd quite like to hear a final mix of it.

    If you don't have these albums already, you should pick up "Eccsame The Photon Band" and "In The Presence Of Nothing" by the Lilys. You'd probably like them.

    good job

    nice work...

    I can't imagine how you are able to keep track of something this complex! Well-crafted...

    you and me both :)

    quick anecdote about the recording: the 4 of us there are musicians and, to some degree or another, engineers. after the two guitar amps were set up and mic'ed, i placed another mic in the stone-tiled shower of an adjacent bathroom, as kind of an affected room mic.

    the others made fun of me. until we listened to playback. the guitar sounds in that mix are mostly shower mic.

    thanks for that.

    thanks. i wish we'd not hit the tape so hard, the tracks were hard to work with (too compressed and lacking in high end). i'm not certain how familiar with the tune anyone is, it's an old Beatles b-side.

    we're all kevin shields fans, so i'm not too surprised. thanks for the compliment!

    the piece i'm supposed to be listening to is 'Exploration', yes?

    i love your use of the timpani at 0:29. the piece evolves nicely throughout. good work.

    edit: i'm an idiot. i just located Rediscovery. that's the piece. listening now.

    edit2: Rediscovery: nice piece. have another listen to the crash (?) cymbal, though, it wasn't working for me. perhaps a cymbal with a longer tail?

    Thankyou! My inspiration came from Final Fantasy 6 (ff3 in America)
    The King of the mobile Sand Castle Theme.

    thanks! i made those sounds when i was in the phase where i'd make sounds from scratch with my ensoniq eps-16. instead of sampling, i would program in a square wave, then go to town with filters and such. all the synth sounds in Rain were made like that.

    How long does it take for your tracks to load? I have waited for over 5 minutes.

    I've got a project I'm doing called Dante's First Circle. I'm in the process of writing a concept album based on Dante's Inferno. The intro song is up (It Begins). The other three songs are just ones i came up with before i got my idea to do this.

    http://www.purevolume.com/dantesfirstcircle

    I used reason 3.0 and garageband on every one
