  • Gameofmetal Sorry for not getting around to helping with those songs, just got sidetracked and busy. Looks like you got them taken care of already so that's a shame I couldn't help. (btw you're supposed to respond in the other persons shoutbox)

  • Final Origin No worries man, always like to collab with other people when I am doing my own recordings too :) Looking forward to hearing your album!
    July 16 06:40 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Seriously tho dude, thanks a million for doing this. Literally did what I was hoping for! That's the album done and dusted :D. ****ing finally....
    July 16 06:32 PM
  • Final Origin Haha i know the feeling xD As long as the song works and sounds good thats all that matters!
    July 16 06:27 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Dude the session file for this song is a ****ing mess XD, but it works so I don't care anymore.
    July 16 06:14 PM
  • Final Origin Ah fair, well completely up to you, I was looking very hard for faults haha.
    July 16 06:13 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Cool beans, yeah the beginning I was thinking maybe that could be for effect? I dunno, I'll fix it now haha.
    July 16 06:12 PM
  • Final Origin Actually, the only thing I noticed was the very beginning when you used the chorus rhythm guitar, at the end I could tell it was the end of the track as you could hear the cut off. But, I did send you a new clip of that with the ring off so that should be a simple fix. Other than that, I heard no issues at all, seems to be okay within the mix and is not noticeable at all.
    July 16 06:07 PM
  • Final Origin Yeah sure send me the link and I will have a good listen to find any noticeable cut off points.
    July 16 05:55 PM
  • Drummerboy123 In fact mate, shall I dropbox the link to the mixed version? See if you can identify the cut off points. If they're noticeably audible I'll use the other mix.
    July 16 05:32 PM
  • Drummerboy123 In fact, If you've already started then go ahead and do it. I'm listening back to the final mix and I can kinda still tell it's not 100% cohesive but I don't think anyone who is looking out for it would notice.
    July 16 05:26 PM
  • Final Origin Haha oh man, well its uploaded if you want to use that mix instead.
    July 16 05:20 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Dude don't bother I managed to get it all working somehow haha. You can't hear the sudden transition in context of the mix.
    July 16 05:17 PM
  • Final Origin Okay I have sent you another email with the new clips, along with a message explaining what I have done and the solutions to the problem. Hopefully everything should be alright from now on :)
    July 16 04:55 PM
  • Final Origin I found out the reason why it does not sound cohesive, it will be because the reverb effect won't carry over to the next clip when I cut them. It would be best if I send you the whole guitar track for the lead guitar so it keeps the reverb ring out, which will also allow you to cut the track yourself if you need to make any changes. I will adjust the rhythm guitar clips and make them longer so they ring out too.
    July 16 02:54 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Coolio dude. If I have anything else to add I'll comment on your shoutbox :).
    July 16 12:25 PM
  • Final Origin Posted the link on the email, they are all 96khz AIFF files inside a .zip file.
    July 16 11:51 AM
  • Final Origin Cool, im uploading the AIFF files now to dropbox, will take a while due to the size of them. Will shout you again once its done.
    July 16 10:46 AM
  • Drummerboy123 I think that's pretty much it mate, there's some structure issues still but hopefully I'll be able to organise it all. In terms of sending over the files, again make sure its 96khz AIF but then make sure to send each guitar track separately.So it would be 2 different audio files for the chorus of the 1st track, then 2 for the verse, then the 1 guitar melody in the bridge, then the one guitar melody at the beginning of the 2nd track and the tremolo melody at the end :). If that's clear.
    July 16 10:04 AM
  • Final Origin Sending you a dropbox link by email showing you the changes you wanted, hopefully its what you wanted.
    July 16 09:11 AM
  • Final Origin Ok sweet, I am going out for a bit so might be able to finish this late this evening or early tomorrow.
    July 15 01:01 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Yeah add another melody on top of it that's kind of subtle :).
    July 15 12:56 PM
  • Final Origin Okay thats cool :) So you want me to add a rhythm over the lead melody on 1:37, or do you want to replace the lead melody altogether?
    July 15 12:55 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Oh yeah, make sure to put another melody in around 1:37, then that's it, I swear! haha
    July 15 12:46 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Yeah that's the reason I'm asking so that I can organise the melodies out.. But that's pretty much it. Next version should be the last. What I mean is that from 0:57 to 1:11 is the wrong melody. 0:57 is where the 1st verse begins but the chorus melody is still playing.
    July 15 12:43 PM
  • Final Origin There are three guitar tracks on this, one has the lead melodies, the other two are rhythm on chorus and the tremolo at the end of the second track. Ill cut out the tremolo between 7:03 and 7:48 and replace it with the chorus-like melody but softer picking. What do you mean about the guitar melody from the chorus in the first track going at the very beginning and also how the first chorus goes on too long, is that something you are going to do?
    July 15 11:53 AM
  • Drummerboy123 As for the tracks themselves, the tremolo picking should come in when the synth comes in at 7:48 and there needs to be another guitar tracking going off with it. The first track is pretty much done apart from having the one of the guitar melodies in the chorus at the very beginning and the fact that the first chorus goes on longer than it should.
    July 15 11:34 AM
  • Drummerboy123 Quick question, do you have all the guitar melodies on one track? Or is it split into different tracks?
    July 15 11:29 AM
  • Final Origin About to send you the third version now on email, hopefully getting closer to what you are looking for.
    July 15 11:07 AM
  • Final Origin Okay, I will give that a try and see.
    July 15 10:28 AM
  • Drummerboy123 You know what you did at 3:25 with the tremolo style picking? Do that, might work.
    July 15 10:19 AM
  • Drummerboy123 Maybe a slower version of what is in the chorus of the first track. Since both songs are in the same key and the synth at 7:48 is the same synth melody in the chorus of the first song. Reprises ftw! Haha. Kinda simple alternate picking that picks up in intensity towards the end.
    July 15 10:17 AM
  • Final Origin What kind of melody are you looking for at 7:09 onwards?
    July 15 10:11 AM
  • Drummerboy123 In fact basically what you did in the second chorus of the first track, copy that for the other 2 choruses in the song.
    July 15 09:42 AM
  • Drummerboy123 Try to write another melody to go over the chorus in the 1st track and another melody at 1:24 that leads up to the second chorus. Otherwise first song is done. For the second song make sure the melody comes in at 4:29. All?s good until around 7:09 or so, not really a fan of the melody there. Otherwise pretty sweet. Just those refinements.
    July 15 09:27 AM
  • Final Origin About to send you the second version of the song by email, let me know what you think. If it is okay, I will then send you the guitar tracks in AIFF 96khz.
    July 15 08:23 AM
  • Final Origin Haha okay, I will be able to do this tomorrow, ill send you a link then :)
    July 14 04:54 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Oh yeah make sure to put something around the 2:30 mark as well during the bridge but then leave it at 3:00. I like what you did at 2:45, do that at 2:30 as well. I swear that's it now haha.
    July 14 03:14 PM
  • Final Origin Sure i can put it in AIFF 96khz no problem, ill link it when its done.
    July 14 02:22 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Once the guitars are done just dropbox the stems to me as well :). In AIF 96khz if that ain't an issue.
    July 14 02:19 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Sweet man, whole thing should sound great when it's done!
    July 14 02:14 PM
  • Final Origin Awesome! Yeah I found the 1st chorus fairly tricky on the 1st track, I will have another attempt on that. I will also add a bit more at the end of the 2nd track, probably use the same notes but continually alternate pick it then. Also will add another guitar track in some places.
    July 14 02:00 PM
  • Drummerboy123 The 2nd chorus of the first song around 1:52ish is awesome! Try and come up with another guitar track to go alongside it too.
    July 14 01:12 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Yes man! Literally what I was looking for haha. I LOVE what you did on the verses! Maybe something new for the chorus of the 1st track and something a bit more towards the end of the second track when the glitch drums come in, kinda like alternate picking. Pretty much nailed the vibe first time tho! Just go over those ideas I mentioned and e-mail me back with the additions and that should be it!
    July 14 01:10 PM
  • Final Origin I have had a go, going to send you a dropbox link at your email address very soon!
    July 14 11:01 AM
  • Drummerboy123 As long as you can have it done as soon as you can all's good :).
    July 14 10:58 AM
  • Gameofmetal I got it, but Im gonna be away from home until wednesday night unfortunately and can't record
    July 14 08:42 AM
  • Final Origin That would be awesome, thanks!
    July 13 08:57 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Btw man, I'll be sure to feature you when the album comes out ;).
    July 13 07:37 PM
  • Final Origin That's cool man, I will get it done ASAP. I work pretty quick once I focus on a project. I will shout out on here once I have something :)
    July 13 06:38 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Once you're done man make sure to give me a shout on here! Then just dropbox me the parts or something :).
    July 13 06:33 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Ahh dude I was planning to get this album done by the end of the month hopefully still but like I said I've been having issues. As quickly as possible pretty much. I'm not really on a deadline or anything but I just want to get this album out there haha. I'm pretty proud of it all.
    July 13 06:29 PM
  • Final Origin Alright sick, I shall give it a good go and see where it takes me. Just found you on Soundcloud and followed you as well. One more thing, how urgent do you want this done?
    July 13 06:22 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Oh yeah, make sure to put some guitars at the beginning. Tho that'll probably the same guitar melody that's in the chorus at 0:30.
    July 13 06:07 PM
  • Drummerboy123 Ermmm I'd say the ending to the whole thing once the acoustic guitar comes in at around 8:50 or so and the piano fades out, yeah leave that as is. Other than that you've got free reign pretty much :). As long as it's post-rocky and fits I aint fussed haha.
    July 13 06:06 PM
  • Final Origin Just went through the track you sent me, pretty sick stuff man! About the guitar side of it, are there some places that you do not want me to touch at all, or are you not fussed about that at all and you are giving me the freedom to do what I want?
    July 13 05:58 PM
  • Mongi123 It's up bro!
    October 29 02:00 PM
  • Mongi123 Really pleasant, uplifting listen man. I particularly enjoy the title track and In Contrast a lot. As a whole didn't blow my mind but I like it a lot.
    October 24 05:31 PM
  • NonApplicable The Monuments leak you have at 256kb/s is a transcode from 192 web rip. They all are.
    June 16 10:04 AM
  • DatBeefPudding how are you liking new monuments ;)
    June 14 10:27 PM

  • SabertoothMonocle Dude, I bought the actual album for Blackest Beautiful at warped tour, it still sounds like s***. Sorry for your loss
    July 1 08:28 PM
  • XfingTheSullen Ok dude, sent you two songs on mail. Hope you like 'em :D
    June 15 07:53 AM
  • CK I be listening to Boards of Canada right now, the album you rec'd me. I always thought they were a post-rock band. Damn was I wrong ha
    April 18 12:04 AM
  • LunaticSoul dredg's discography is incredibly good, just avoid Chuckles. It's not the best album to start, rather the best album to finish as half of it sucks and you can think about how much the rest is good. ;)
