Honestly dude just do everything to a click track in the future and it'll help you a million x.

Also the way the drums are mixed so snappy and so far in the front reaallyyy is a little unnerving. if you can tone them down and make them feel more natural and sync your guitar work up a little bit better to the drums then you're golden

Thank you both!

Yeah, that was my new band's first foray into the studio. There were some problems during the mixing process (studio flooded @_@) so we recorded that in february/march, but only Crossed was able to be finished until now

Honestly, we have developed so much since then that I cannot WAIT to get back into the studio and record something that's more representational of what we're doing these days. . I can sing SO much better now, we're all much tighter as a band, and we have so many new ideas

It's funny that you say Minus the Bear though. . . Minus the Bear have become a pretty big influence on myself and Jeremy (my conspirator in crime & 2nd guitar & 2nd vocals) but I was like JUST discovering them back when we recorded that stuff. . . hadn't heard enough for them to sink in or anything. Jeremy hadn't even heard of them at that point.

Now he likes them more than I do : P he loves to loop his guitar parts and speed them up/slow them down on his DL 4 (or rather, his gigantic multi effects pedal which consists of every line6 effect ever created) but he does it for more of an ambient effect, rather than looping melodic lines

Thanks for the feedback, ya? I also wanna post some live tracks now, so you can get a better idea of what we do. Check out http://www.daturany.bandcamp.com if you'd like

How are these recorded? I like the songs but I think they need some production to sound a little less bare. You guys are good though so once you get into a studio again you should make the most of it! KUTGW

We recorded in one day in possibly the weirdest situation I've been in. We were set up in a hallway of this warehouse with a crazy *** sludge band playing loud as **** in the next room. (They are actually pretty good, they're called Armed For Apocalypse) But we miked the drums and did direct input for everything else. We did the vocals the next day cause our singer got drunk waiting for his turn.

Do you know specifically what kind of production techniques would fill in the tracks? Could it be something as simple as doubling the guitars? Im not a pro at producing but I know the songs do have a "bare" sound to them.

1 is that there is just no texture to the guitars. you say you recorded DI, it sounds like your engineer just kind of mixed the guitars to sound a little hotter and called it a day

we doubled up a lot of tracks and a lot of our rhythm parts are more than one guitar tracks- one playing the chords clean and straight, one doing chunky distorted strokes on the 1, one on the acoustic, etc etc etc

the philosophy we follow is that less is more. . . break your guitar parts down into their simplest components, and then record that. . . then overdub playing your flourishes, overdub with the acoustic, lots of little parts that come together to make one big sound, as opposed to trying to fill as much space as possible with just one guitar track

a little bit of reverb or delay can also go a long long way

If you could even take those tracks and put in some overdubs to add a bit of texture and a bit more presence it'd make a big difference I think

there are drum machine samples, a converge vocal cover and a guitar mp3. feedback appreciated, doesn't matter how harsh. influences include the general stuff; pig destroyer, converge, dillinger, brutal truth, agoraphobic nosebleed etc.

Datura kick ***, if the vocalist practises a bit more (I like his voice, I just feel he needs a little more power) they could be something

Haven't checked out any others bands btw, before people get all insecure

IDM stuff I guess, I like it. And I've put an album up for free on last.fm
here: http://www.last.fm/music/Pickpocket+Plus/Pickpocket+Plus

Also, Noonward - I really love the bits I've heard of yours.

I think this forum should start some kind of blog for releasing all this music. But only good music, right?
