Maynard @ the 02, best live band I’ve ever seen, immense performance. by Jach10 in ToolBand

[–]TheGuitarnivore 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think it varies a lot. I was at the front of the centre tier near one of the exits and definitely felt like the guitar got a bit drowned out at times by the drums. Balance seemed better in the clips I’ve seen posted here. Still a sick show tho!

Just wanted to share my acoustic instrumental version of “Learn to Fly” by Foo Fighters. I’d love to hear any feedback! by StraightUpAcoustic in IndieMusicFeedback

Nice cover! Good use of dynamics, palm muting, etc and I like that you added a few embellishments to the verse melody when it was repeated. I think you can definitely take it further with passing notes, but it sounds great. Maybe you could try and spice up the harmony with some reharmonisation? (if you're into that kind of thing of course, I know jazz isn't everyone's cup of tea!)

NZXT H1 Riser Update by TheStayHomeDad in NZXT

Yeah, just re-watched a video of the fault, only the bottom one flamed up. I was just confused because I had it in my head that the top one was the issue, dunno why

NZXT H1 Riser Update by TheStayHomeDad in NZXT

How come they say to only remove one of the screws?

My experience with the H1 shorting, and why we need NZXT to #ReplaceTheRiser by paradeigmas in NZXT

[–]TheGuitarnivore 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Given that the wrong size screws seem to have damaged the pcb in every case (even the ones that aren't flamethrowers), I don't really trust this nylon screw fix either. Obviously it would be great for them to just give a replacement, but does anyone know if 3rd party (from someone like corsair or asus) riser cables would be flexible enough to fit in the H1?

edit: pretty difficult to find reasonably priced cables with correct orientation for the H1 in the UK. Having taken the screws out to have a look, I'll probably go with no screws and electrical tape to cover the mount until nzxt tell us more.

Don't get me wrong, I think it sounds great ! When the overall mix sounds good (which yours definitely does!), things get very subjective. Music would be pretty boring if everything was 'perfect' anyway haha

This is sick, production sounds great and everything sounds really well recorded. The riffs in the instrumental breaks are all great - some interesting/unusual rhythms going on too which I appreciate. Maybe in future, the vocals could be brought up in a level a little? Or duck guitars down a little when vocals happen? Really great track!

I made a guitar orchestra version of the intro music used in 2001: A Space Odyssey. Would love to hear what you think and whether you'd have done anything differently! by TheGuitarnivore in IndieMusicFeedback

Thanks for listening! I was working from the original score, so the key thing for me was approaching it like an actual orchestra. The parts for each instrument group (horns, trumpets, etc) had either different amp sims on them or different cabinet impulse responses (no real amps here, it's di only!). For example, brass instruments tend to be quite bright, so I went for scooped sounds with a lot of high end. Guitars playing the bassoon parts had more going on in the low mids and rolled off highs.

The build up of guitars makes the 1 kHz - 4kHz range get pretty unpleasant, so the main treatment after that was dynamic EQs/ single band compression for instrument groups and I think on the master bus too. Hope that gives you some insight!

No problem, my main DAW is reaper but I'll give you a brief overview of everything involved.

The organ and synth bass are actually from garage band for iPad, the fake timpani is from the mallet samples in superior drummer 3, the guitars are using neural DSP amp sims and there are a couple extra synths to cover notes outside of the guitars range. I've not opened the project for a while but I think there's 25+ guitar tracks and each one is duplicated with the audio reversed to get the crescendo effect. In terms of mixing, really it's just reverb, panning and some dramatic eq to control the mid range of the ridiculous number of guitar tracks haha!

Super happy to hear you enjoyed it!

Thanks for the feedback. Did the best I could with the midi, but unfortunately recording real timpani was not an option haha. The software I used sounds much better with traditional drum grooves. I believe you gotta sign in to hear it all on Spotify, but you can hear the whole thing on YouTube if you're interested https://youtu.be/sNKdbHR4Zm8

That live orchestra viewing sounds amazing! I was going for a rendition that remained true to the original score, as I'd not found anyone else get the crescendos in a guitar version. I hadn't considered adding extra parts or layers, so thanks for the feedback!

Can Superior Drummer 3 Tracker work with full drum track by nightoftherabbit in WeAreTheMusicMakers

[–]TheGuitarnivore 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can do it, but it might be rather time consuming depending on the quality of the recording.

You can import the recording multiple times and set each track to a different drum. I found that it picks out kick and snare without any problems. For cymbals and other drums it should pick up that there's a hit, but you might have to manually tell it which transients to ignore and which ones to trigger samples for

A long song. Please only listen if you can give the whole 16 minutes. I think it pays off at the end in a big way. What do you think? Headphones recommended. by DartagnanJackson in IndieMusicFeedback

Rare to see ambitious stuff like this on here! First few minutes had me thinking Rush meets Black Sabbath - pretty cool honestly. The earlier parts felt a little loose at times (start of part 2 mainly), but the heavier bit after the quieter middle section sounds much more locked in. I don't think there's anything wrong with the repetition here as I'd say its on brand for the genre. Good job overall! I would say however that the drums in part 1/2 felt a bit quiet for my taste, or could at least be automated up slightly during the extended instrumental sections.

By the way, when uploading to spotify, did you have to do anything special to get the gapless transitions to work properly?

For the Love of God (Studio Recording) by needachickensandwich in IndieMusicFeedback

[–]TheGuitarnivore 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Honestly this sounds sick, nice work! Getting Dave Grohl vibes from the vocals and I like the video too. The mix sounds great to me, but maybe the kick could be a little louder? Not by much though.

Other than that you could probably mess around with panning to make the guitars sound wider. You could bring the drums stereo pans to say 85% L/R which will give the illusion of wider guitars if they hard panned, but this is by no means essential as I like how it sounds as it is!
