    Through the Devil's Gate

    Thanks, glad you liked it. Yeah her voice was a vst.
  2. Hip-Hop was my first love. It was how I ventured into music. I'm also an advocate at mixing as well (in fact, I'd say I am better at mixing than rapping.) But so far, your song was mixed together well I'd say. In my opinion, a female's voice will always be higher pitched than a male, so I would cut out any unwanted bass frequency that will live in the recording to make her voice more clear. Otherwise, the unwanted noise will put a stamp on the overall quality. Your sister's voice is perfect. It didn't take over the volume of your voice, and it was low enough so the beat took priority. This was put together well. Great job!

    My Lead/Rhythm Guitar Tracks

    Oh wow. Thanks guys! I'll keep those things in mind the next time! I was totally unaware that guitar players wrote in bars. I thought that was only for vocals.
  4. Trying to gather a few tracks I've posted before all in one playlist. Does anyone have any advice for lead?

    New Hip hop Track

    Personally, Radio Relish didn't get me to Bob my head as it played - too many ideas. It sounded like several ideas you had for beats all put in one. However, I loved it when the samples came in later on. Although, the samples seemed like one huge intro. Will listen to the rest soon.

    Ninja Blade - Lead Guitar/Suspended Chords

    Thanks @Monarcheon 😊
  7. Found this sweet backing track on Youtube. I just had to jam over it. I named it Ninja Blade because it has a anime theme to it lol. I love it. Wouldn't call better than Seismic Melody but I'll say this a close second. I played lead here and also some suspended chords. Also, to clarify (and this unrelated to the topic) I've had a couple of people ask if I still did orchestral composing. Answer is, I do but I'm just taking a break from that.
  8. I purchased a new interface for my computer and this is the very first, fully structured guitar track I've made using it. It's the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 interface. I've never mixed and mastered a track recorded from an interface before, so I'm not sure how well the quality is...but from you guys reviews it'll help in the future.

    Lead Guitar - Cold Redemption

    Thanks Luis. As usual, I have no idea what dissonances are. I just played. It's great to know someone enjoyed it, because as the composer, I hate it lol.
  10. Just finished a guitar track. I think it's in C# Minor - my guitar was tuned in C#. Forget what scale I used. Anyway, it was just something I messed around with. Mainly ideas thrown together over a central melody/rhythm I found on YouTube.

    new soundtrack

    I wouldn't say you missed any notes because only you know what notes should go where. I think the notes are fine, if you to change up your chords or switch to a different key and back it'll give your music diversity.

    new soundtrack

    I think this is the best one you've made so far. I like the grand gesture, your brass, and piano sections. I can't get over the fact that your chords are repeatedly being used over and over. It didn't sound so bad in the end but the build up was a bit boring.

    It's Then or That

    Know the feeling you get when you try and swallow your fear and go over to the lady at the bar asking her for a dance? That's the feeling I get...until around 1:20 or so. It's very jazzy yet very creepy. I've never heard of such a mixture before. It is very unique in its own right and I think this could possibly spark a new genre of music. Can't wait to hear it when it's full and complete; you're adding more to it? This...strikes my curiosity ten fold though I am at a loss of words at the moment.

    Revealing My Conviction

    This track is expressing my guilt mainly to my peers whom I've done and said things to that were out of line. Almost went into tears recording this. I think out of all the music I've uploaded to this site, this one came from my heart and soul the most.
