I’d live on the Arpanet Peninsula and move to TCP/IP. I’d imagine its inhabitants would consist of elders wearing robes, the builders of the foundation for the rest of this world.
I recently uploaded this track: http://audiojungle.net/item/desolate-world/6050046 to Audiojungle and filed it under Rock / Metal.
I’ve been told afterwards that it’s more in the line of motivational tracks even though it never crossed my mind while making it. To me filing it under Metal was a clear choice, but I’m not too sure in hindsight.
So for future reference it would be nice to hear your opinions on whether you’d file it under metal or motivational, so I can be more specific regarding which genre to pick next time when I upload.
I’ve got an appropriately titled track that might just be what you’re looking for -> http://audiojungle.net/item/war-machine/5220638?WT.ac=portfolio&WT.seg_1=portfolio&WT.z_author=Karisigurd4
It’s certainly different producing an orchestral track than just having one or two string lines in the background of a guitar, bass and drums track! Do you think Miroslav is up to it or should I be looking to invest in a more specialist package? Disclaimer – I’m not blaming Miroslav for my own shortcomings!
If you’re going for a professional and polished sound like the Hollywood trailers have, Miroslav just will not be enough.
I agree with the reviewer, the mix is very low-end heavy and lacks clarity. It’s not just the drums, the overall sound. Play around with an eq and reference with professional music while mixing/mastering.
Woah, that coffee maker looks freaky!
I’m very picky about my coffee, I’ve got a Dolce Gusto machine that can make anything from hot chocolate to cappuccino in less than 20 seconds!
Three sales so far, one for each day
Pensandos Place is a great show, full of useful information.
There’s also a great channel called “The recording revolution” on youtube ( link: http://www.youtube.com/user/recordingrevolution ). I love the 30 days to a better mix series that guy does, it’s always short straight to the point tutorials that provide invaluable and helpful tips on how to improve your mixing. I’ve learnt so much just by watching those vids.
I’m no expert, but I’ll share my thoughts.
This track would benefit from some more work on the expression. The instruments all sound very synthetic. The sustained strings and repeated harp pattern especially.
The pizzicato strings are a little to loud and heavy in the mix, the overall impression the mix/master leaves on me is that it’s a bit too dark, could use with some shine or more activity on the high end.
Very mystical and adventurous, conveys the feeling you were going for well.
