you have Manuela, your support and advice have helped me to improve, using buss channels sidechaining reverb delay all on separate channels, so i have far more control, your explanation about blending dry and wet, i can use 4 vocals with different fx then blend them together im using less EQ, i here things clearly now quite a lot of my previous is pitched to high, im altering the mids highs and lows, using less compression on the vox too and your advice about keeping my main vox centered adding reverb/delay at the end of statements. this is valuable advice, i've still got a way to go tho this is the true meaning off being a community and building it, sadly not all are on our page. and having no forum does'nt help, i have one coming for the people who don't take part, you possibily wont like it, its agressive not your thing, its the truth tho' :))
next but one, its dimestop cabaret next :))

Good morning, Paul. This is also a very beautiful lyrical text. I like these types of texts that identify people's daily problems from everyday life. I think you've discovered a new creative vein for yourself here. Away from the blaring, accusatory rap lyrics towards more sensitive but profound words. The music is very beautiful and your singing is constantly developing. You also worked a lot in the area of mix and master and developed a lot here too. I still remember old songs of yours where we talked about mixing and mastering techniques.
Great song from both of you, a really successful collaboration!
Kind regards and a nice start into the new week,
Manuela

thanks for the feedback Manuela, i was really happy with how this came together and the text i wrote, im glad you have gotten to know me too, i can be argumentative and like a little controversy, but i am just trying to find an identity rapping gave me confidence as i have a bad voice, but the help and feedback gave me confidence to keep stretching myself and push further, yes i stand my ground at times but i am really a caring guy love my family and friends and im loyal. i like to write sensitive text, i know whats right really Paul is nothing like dimestop. and my contact with you made me change the way i reply as you know text dont show emotion Paul is emotional dimestop has no feelings and yep i've got 2 cabaret tracks to come next :))

Very Cool Mate, BTW Congrats on beating Serbia in the Euros. Your getting some smoother controls over your voice. You are able to sustain without vibrato which is not easy to do. Keep on Brother!

thanks for the listen cru, it was a nervous watch against Serbia. we always start shit, we have the talent but do they have the nerve, the opening 30 minutes was positive but then we resorted to same old same old sitting deep and trying to defend a lead instead of going for the throat, Trent Alexander didn't work in midfield and Foden was shit none existent, im a massive footie fan im 58, i was 3 months old last time we won anything,
and yeah my vocals are improving . thanks for the positive comments Steven its always appreciated

Wat up Paul! Glad to see ur still holding it down around the community. I've been insanely busy with a bit too much on my plate, and while I'm gone everything around the whole site changed seems lol. I like the aesthetic though the site looks really clean and new. This has definitely got your signature sound. And I don't know if you got a new mic or a new wave recording your vocals or whatnot but it sounds a little bit different a little bit clearer to me maybe it's just my imagination either way man good work as always. -Aaron

sorry for the late reply Aaron, i had a long weekend break in my home town, no music just family just back home in the midlands now, yeah new set up, i Beta tested it, it looks fresh but the forum should be brought back i think.
no new kit slightly different vocal chain and improvement in my mastering now using better sidechaining, reverb glueing frequencies, stereo enhancements ive also not used as much EQ more my natural voice really only used one youlean 5 band dynamic sometimes i use 4-5 and mix it together, thanks for the positive feedback mate

Good track Paul! Really painting a picture here. Is anything really beyond repair...? Your lyrics have led me to ask today. When I do some traveling we should grab a beer, or if you do. Hopefully sometime soon.

Anyway nice track. Got a new one coming, going to leave the one you've heard up for another round.

Thank you,

the words are so very true great work. As for what ValveDriver was saying about community, I was always wanting to see some remix comps hosted on here in view of driving comuniy

thanks for your time bro, yeah a bit of comp would be good, it inspires productivity and hunger and is good for improvement, nice to meet another west midlands artist :))

ValveDriver 13th Jun 2024 01:27 - 1 month ago
There was a while there when the community aspect kind of dropped out around here. It's definitely back, I believe. It's different now than it was before, but it's still a good place. There are still a lot of very supportive people, and that's always good.
Anyhow, have a good one, brother.
Take care.
Aaron.

your so right Aaron, they're a good bunch and i enjoy myself here, it would be nice to see more comments on peoples tracks but you can only hope, some just aint got the time, but i think it encourages artist to keep delivering and improving especially collabing. i sometimes think its not about how long your here but what you give back when you are here, always great to see you bro.

ValveDriver 13th Jun 2024 00:15 - 1 month ago
Funny thing is, Dime, I'm also working on a remix of this one. Except I won't be including my vocals. I don't have the gift of song when it comes to that department. Nobody wants to hear Valvedriver sing!

Kudos, man.
Take care.

Description : To me this sounds like a late night jam when everyone in the band but the drummer is half toasted and things could fall apart any second. Funnily enough that's pretty much what it is only I'm the band. One take on guitars vocals and bass, minimal edits. Could be a complete mess could be not. Either way happy if you let me know.

Description : Hey guys! Something different this time. I pulled from my teenage angst for this. As well as listening to a lot of indie artists, Ryan caraveo being my favorite. Let me know what you guys think! I know this one isn't going to be too popular but hope you guys like it! I feel like it might be a little bass heavy but tell me what you guys think!

Description : This track is a collaboration with another Looperman member, Salve Clements, a very talented vocalist from Australia. Salve wrote the lyrics and composed and recorded the vocal melody and lyrics.

In working on the mix, I simply wasn’t able to achieve a proper balance in the overall sound. So, I got some help from Wytse Gerichhausen of White Sea Studio in the Netherlands. He was able to fix the problems I had created and got it sounding the way I had hoped it would.

Description : In 2017 my little cousin took his own life. My entire family blamed themselves for it. Never questioning what he was going through or what he may have been feeling. For a long time, I wanted to create a song where I put myself in the shoes of someone hurting. This song has a long way to go before it's finished. I wanted to share what I have thus far in hopes it inspires me to finish it.
