Description : TWEAKED took V's advice. another vox its multi layered to try give it some hype but its difficult when your voice is shit :)) but im having fun. wrote it pretty quick added reverb and delay all different on each of the layers. be as hard as you like ive got thick skin, there might be to much going on, you tell me though, i dedicate it to you all, its because of you im still here, could of give a bit more distortion on the bass. put some cymbal crashes in and a few percs to give it variety

Intro was cool mate!. Ok some serious notes at :45, take that delay off and go it clean. that advice was given to me on remixes by an Australian DJ friend and it rang true on a remix I did for Robert O'Connor. Do not be afraid to mix up the vocal FX treatments. That being said, it's a cool tune. I am a big fan of Sly and Robbie's work throughout the years, esp their work with Grace Jones, No Doubt, and their dub work.

thanks for the feedback mate, now that was a name from the past Sly and Robbie, i liked them too. i am finding my way around all this and trying new things all the time, i too think the delay could be taken off in places but my voice needs a little help i think. been watching videos about the different singing scales, i watched Bobby McFerrin explaning the power of the pentatonic scale 5 notes C D E G A thats were i think i need to be singing, eventually id like to think i could just EQ my vox, nothing else. i have been doing lots of research and learning things ive never ever heard of. i enjoy writing but now im trying to do things in a more regular way short hooks make them melodic and catchy they dont necessarily need lyrics just random words and ad-libs, repetition, getting a good chorus thats easy to remember with the verse giving the depth and back story to engage the listener and keep them interested. i never thought for one moment i would go this deep in to production but this place has changed me so much, i appreciate all the feedback and help i want to be better for me so try to be different, i also now understand what you were saying about my chorus in Sunrise being really good, at the time i was like what does he mean it can be so good, although i want to be my own person tbf all your feedback has been priceless

Paul, the tweaks and adjustments you’ve made has brightened up the overall mix and brought a greater clarity to your vocals in comparison to your very first upload of this track. A marked and quite noticeable improvement my friend.

thanks Mark three hrs with my headset mixing chopping overlaying, my ears were bleeding, i knew i was close but again not just right taking V's advice on board and a sleep i tweaked it to get it more balanced im glad you could spot the improvement, i know how to de=ease but because i like to jazz my lyrics up with overlays and doubles with different fx on other layers i tend to get clipping even with low pass filters and the compression takes some of the pronunciations away but now a can pan around add saturation separate and change the latency to get much crisper vocals. your feedback is important to me as you know and we've got plans afoot maybe if we can get interest :))

Vocals sound pretty good layered like that with a reverb, it gives it a great reggae feel I really like. I would probably eq the vocal track a little because the of the reverb it's sometimes a little muddy...(idk I think, lol)
Well done bro, def a worthy track. I enjoyed listening to it.
dimestop
dimestop replied 16th Jul 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks for the listen bro and the feedback, ive tweaked it a couple times i tried to keep the main vocal clean no fx and keep the panning delay reverb on the layered tracks and used stereo separation and increased the latency on each individually. i did use a low pass filter on the master , my ears are bleeding from listen to hey hey haha, im glad you had a good listen Alien

Everytime it starts to sound better Paul.
I like what yo do with your voice .
Its nice that you get advice here what to do and how and that you learn from that with succes.
It is noticeable that you understand what is being explained.
I don't understand it and I don't know if it's because of my bad English or because I don't know the music terms.
What Valve is explaining to you?? i dont understand it.
But you didd a good job in 2 years Paul.
see where you are now from nothing.

Rita as you know a few of us bonded on here and have grown our friendships immeasurable, we play active rolls our community has lost a few but we've gained a few aces too, were still a strong bunch and we are all able to critique too because we want whats best for everyone, the helpful detailed comments and fixes from highly talented individuals have been priceless for me, and you lady we will put it down to bad English :))
wat V uitlegde was al mijn zang 8 lagen waren centraal, dus ze waren modderig en knippend dus houd je hoofdstem gecentreerd en pan de lagen van links naar rechts stereo scheiding geeft de woorden duidelijkheid en duidelijke definitie daarom gezien de hele songbreedte

hope that was a help, thanks for your support, every minute i gave you is worth it

ValveDriver 15th Jul 2022 19:51 - 1 year ago
That right there is exactly what I was talking about!

Yeah, this sounds much better. The vocals are separated from each other, but still work together. The bass is much more centered giving the panned vocals room to play. The levels seem to be more balanced, too. I don't notice any clipping.

Excellent work, my friend!

i really am grateful V, constructive criticism with the answers should be a bedrock among us, thanks for givin it a second whirl, everybody's time is important so thanks again your lesson in stereo separation and panning was excellent, i will take this forward on all my work. you actually here a physical difference with even the smallest amounts added and a huge difference visually in the waveform

Sound has always been my biggest connection to the world, and how I connect myself to it. The best music, to me, brings the strongest emotional response/cues. This track gave me that-specifically, for whatever reason it made me recall a childhood memory I'd forgotten, and that feeling lasted through the whole song. Excellent job man.

On a side note, vocal mixing is only slightly less difficult than rocket science, I have to be in a certain mood to even try. You're certainly improving on that front and using the feedback that u receive, and it shows.

Hey Paul, vox sounding confident on this one and better production too. A botanist friend once told me if you say something with confidence people will believe you. Think that's true with music too. Sounds like you to valve drivers advice, stereo field sounds pretty good to me.
dimestop
dimestop replied 15th Jul 2022 - 1 year ago
thanks Chris, i agree with if you say something with confidence people will believe you. i took V's advice about stereo separation and panning, the wave looks totally different now and the difference is easily heard. i am happy with the feedback i had from everyone. when you have your headset on for hours mastering it can be tough you start hearing things different as you tire out taking a break and coming back fresh is the way forward i think using that advice the vocals are much clearer and it gives me a good template now, feedback is vitally important good or bad as it keeps your feet on the ground as you become better all round, thanks for your positive comment mate
ValveDriver
ValveDriver 15th Jul 2022 00:37 - 1 year ago
Alright brother, here's my take on it:

Stereo separation and panning are your friend. (except when it's bass.) You have multiple layers on the vocals. Take the main vocal line and keep it centered. But the background layers with the effects, pan them out or give them stereo separation. Not only will it widen up the track, but it will make it easier to understand the lyrics. You said "...there might be too much going on..", doing this will help with that. With everything sitting in the center, it can get kind of crowded.
Remember that part I said up there about "Except when it's bass" what I mean by that is that the bass is generally the concrete foundation of frequencies that all the others dance upon. Keep that bad boy centered. You have to be careful with bass, though. It can get real loud real fast. When that happens, it starts clipping (going above 0db) and you get a distortion that isn't supposed to be there, or it totally Godzillas the shit out of your mix. You know, it stomps all over it.
I tell ya what, Dime. You have fun when you make your tracks and it shows. I think if you play around with panning, stereo, and levels, you could be knocking these even further out of the park.

Keep it up, mister!
Take care.
V.

thanks for the feedback V, ive already used so much on it and i took the stereo separator of after pissing about with it. i'll have a play with it tmro and check the panning on some of the presets i used should have checked but had my headset on for 3 hrs my ears are knackered now its just after 1.35 am UK im off to bed mate
and yeh i always have a laugh with the music, i dont take my self serious at all i feel in love with it 2 years ago i never knew a thing. now im trying everything having a ball invested good money in it too and wanna improve for me nobody else, but ive made so many great friends here, your like my family now, i cant give it up, so i'll keep trying my best mate :))
