Description : A collaboration between Evisma (bass guitar), Valvedriver (synths+ guitar VST) and everyone's favourite Nomad (synths, programmed drums, electric cello, production, mixing, mastering). A heavy, groovy, electronic, mystical, Eastern track made by three guys who've known each other for years but never met in person. Interesting comments appreciated.

    I haven't seen The Joker so can't comment on the soundtrack. But I've heard the film is great so will get round to watching it sometime, bearing your comment in mind.

    Bladerunner is good but I think I prefer the soundtrack to the actual film.

    Glad to hear you liked the track.

    WTF ! I remember getting total freaked out about some powerful superhero team ups back when I was reading comic books, like when Ghost Rider hooked up with Wolverine and The Punisher, or when Spawn and Batman got together for an ish, and even Kick-Ass and Hit Girl got in on some action together (not what yer thinkin), but this grouping has got to rank among the heaviest I remember since I've been here on Looperman. I really dig this track and dont know how I missed the first posting. I do agree there's some compression issues though so hopefully you can work that out and re-post soon. What do you think about "Warriors Three" for a band name after the Marvel group consisting of Fandral, Hogun and Volstagg?

    Yo.

    I hope I didn't freak you out too much with this collaboration between such extreme musical heavyweights. Look out next week for my collaborative track featuring Steve Vai, Maynard James Keenan and Enya. It's something rather special.

    We actually made this one about 3 years ago and were hoping to do enough for a whole album together. Or at least a group Looperman account. But that hasn't happened so I've uploaded this one here for people to check out anyway.

    Warriors Three? Not a bad name but I don't love it. We suggested so many names between us but didn't really love any of them so went in the end with The Bastard Files. Because we're a bunch of bastards and we send each other audio files over the internet. A bastard file is actually a type of file ie the metal tool used for filing.

    Damn those compression issues! I'll try to fix them but I've already put a huge amount of work into mixing this at various times in the last 3 years. So I can't guarantee much improvement now.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    What's happnin?

    Yeah. It's pretty cool to hear this one again. I had almost forgotten what it sounded like. It was a pretty fun little number to work on, too.

    I do hear issues with the mix. We can talk about that later.

    Hopefully, Mr. E. can find Parallax. I kinda forgot what that one sounded like, too.

    I guess, at some point, I should probably add my contribution, huh?

    Anyhow. Get a hold of me about the mixing and whatnot's.

    Mr. V.

    Raging greetings, Ancient Valve.

    Nice of me to be able to remind of some of your previous work. Your synth contributions (ie in second half) are perhaps my favourite parts in the whole track. Or my programmed guitar parts starting 2:01.

    Damn these mix issues. I need to go back and scrutinise even more to remove the problems that other people are hearing which I'm not. A bit of a challenge.

    Yes, hope he finds Parallax though I might have all the parts on my hard drive. Certainly some. You did add some synth parts to that track. Mostly just wooshy background synth stuff, if I remember correctly.

    Super cool track. Nice job all around guys. The mix sounds great up until the 5-minute mark where it does get a little compressed sounding. Still a great track.

    Thanks very much. I think it's a pretty interesting and unusual creation. Not sure what happens to the mix around 5 mins. I still hear everything just fine. Shame it's not a more dynamic looking waveform. Perhaps I'm just trying to cram too many sounds on top of each other.

    mix isn't great but good idea

    It's a shame that the mix seems to be the main talking point and problem here. I've worked very hard at it and feel I can hear everything that's going on in the track, which is a lot.

    Not sure what I can realistically do to improve things but I'll have another think.

    Thanks for the thoughts.

    Greetings, great and powerful Nomad.

    It's nice to hear this on the loop! Really enjoyed the few additions you've made since I last heard it. I believe I contributed the least out of the three of us. Listening again, I hear that your early lead guitar parts are in phrygian mode and now I can noodle with your riff a bit and know what I'm doing. Didn't know how to get that eastern feel till learning the modes.

    As for the mix, I listened through a stereo system and it seems a bit compressed and there is some slight unintended ducking, fluctuating volume in spots. Nothing major, and I definitely enjoyed it. Especially the bass playing. Tasty shiznit there. I'll try to find Parallax, but I may have lost it when my recording setup died last year. New stuff from me soon, with vocals.

    Evan, innumerating all that he's to do.

    Salutations, small and pitiful gonad.

    Yes, nice to hear it on the Loop. It's only taken three years for me to upload it.

    "I believe I contributed the least out of the three of us."

    I believe you did but those bass parts are very useful, especially the tone, which I'm not able to get.

    But you know that it's the bass player's job to shut up and sit in the background, merely providing some low end and rhythm, never anything fancy. In most bands, the bass player will be immediately unplugged if he's seen or heard fingering a chord. And then made to leave the band immediately. Even if it's mid-song during a massive stadium gig.

    I know very little about modes so don't know the phrygian though I have heard of it. Early lead guitar parts? There aren't any until the middle breakdown. Unless you mean The Valve's chugging early distortion.

    Unintended ducking is certainly unintended. Shame about that and the apparently sub standard mix.

    "Tasty shiznit there."

    Yes. Whoever you got to do those bass parts can definitely play!

    Yes, please find Parallax. Would be good to complete it.

    As you've already worked out, there's a whole new album of Maynard lyrics to use for signoffs. So I give you:

    Great And Powerful Nomad,

    Calculating steps away from you

    Nice composition and overal inmpression\vibe. Not that good mixing\mastering (especially athe end and heavy parts). I personally don't like guitar tone, its flat and muddy.

    Hi, thanks for the honest feedback. I like that.

    I've just uploaded another version over the previous file, this time without the limiting on the master so I hope that solves the muddy, compressed sound. My mistake for previously trying to make the track very loud and badass.

    I'd be interested to know if you can hear a difference. An improvement would be great!

    I think the guitar you mean is the heavy, distorted stuff. That's a programmed guitar VST (Shreddage) made by Mr Valvedriver. I like it and can't tell it's not the real thing.

    Yes, I like the overall composition and vibe. It's certainly unusual.

    Thanks again and I hope you'll listen again.

Description : This is my newest creation, at a stage very near to completion. No third-party mastering or mixing, as with all my tracks. Just have to fix a few tiny things. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO MIX EVERYTHING IN THE SAME SESSION. This song has all human-played instruments - no quantization or MIDI! My brother does all the vocals except for the interlude part, which I do. My other brother plays the rhythm guitar (a Gibson Les Paul Custom - only one of 12 in the world!!) and I play the accompanying guitar (a Johnny Mar Jag and PRS). He has a lot of guitars :P A good friend of ours, Ronnie, plays the bass and another friend, Freddie, plays the drums. The drum track was done in one take (had to use an electric drum set due to time constraints - but acoustic kits are so much better). Overall, pretty satisfied with the result. Let me know your thoughts.

Description : The first track I sing on. Cheap stage mic & no fancy plugins. Heavily guitar laden to the point it's got a bit of a shoegaze thing going on. I pulled the lyrics out of my ass & yes, they're a bit silly.

Description : I wrote this song some time ago when I was living in Florida. It's even more true today.

Vocals by Arthur Granquist, guitar by the great Kevin Lysen, drums by Marc Karmatz, also the recording engineer.

The idea musically was to take some rock and some bluegrass elements, mash 'em up and see what happened.

Every day is a struggle to do better in a crazy world.
