Recordings

Haha, so many have asked about my music x) Some have even asked me to post it here!

Maybe I will, since it's a sort of "creation" of mine :)

Although it's mainly something for me to do at the moment, and also practice mixing and stuff like that, it's not something that sounds over the top. The drums are (at the moment) all computer generated and we record in my friends bedroom haha.

He's pretty good with gizmos and technical stuff, better than me anyway, he's taken apart his guitar-amp and plugged it into the computer, and with the computer we can generate different effects, like distortion, wah-wah, delay, reverb, pretty much anything, you name it! Same with bass-guitar!

Only downside to this method as that the palm-muting sounds sort of retarded, which you can hear in the track right here:

No vocals on it yet, and there are mainly two reasons:

1) I have no lyrics, at least not the complete song, I've gotten like, half a verse and a half chorus.

2) Vocals are hard to record!

They're hard to record mainly because of one thing. I'm not the best of singers haha x)
No, but seriously, we use a microphone that is intended for live use, and not recording, thus the sound is not the way we want it. I also lost my "pop-filter" which cancels the sound you get if you breath in to the mic.

But as soon as I figure out how to sing in the proper key in the song we're recording now (It's only on one part of the chorus, I just can't seem to get it right! The verse and the first part of the chorus are perfect, it's just this one part... Makes me frustrated!)

Anyways, if you listen to the song, I'm glad to hear some feedback! (Also, it's just a working title, tell me what you feel when you hear the song, if like... It's supposed to have a type of lyric to it, maybe it'll be easier for me to write the lyrics :D)

Anyways, thanks for all your support lemondrops! And sorry for such a long post x)

I'll keep you posted!
