  1. Music: Recording Studio
    This is pretty much the first thing I've ever recorded. I have no clue about mixing, mastering, or how to apply effects to make things sound good. This has no effects applied, no compression, no EQ, no anything, because I don't know how to do that. And it only took about 4 hours to make this...
  2. Music: Recording Studio
    Quick and dirty recording. The guitars are done through my axe fx 2. This is a 7 string in B standard but it's pitch shifted down to 8 string range. There's no post editing at all on the guitars, Drums were written by a friend (Singer in my band actually) and are superior 2.0 using a stock...
  3. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    since i've been doing so many videos with the ultra-high-end Axe-FX2, i thought it'd be fun to go in the opposite direction and record a track solely with a tiny 4 watt, 4-inch-speaker Ibanez micro amp. all effects were added in the computer (except for an Electro-Harmonix Soul Preacher...

    I haven't recorded an entire song in years, so I thought I'd have a crack at one. This is a song I wrote around two, three years ago. It's supposed to have vocals, but I can't sing, so it has to remain instrumental. I was getting pretty pleased with the mix, but it got late and I've had to turn...

    Neither are finished, and they both have loads of room for tightening up and general improvement, but I'd love some feedback. This one is a proggy.. thing, I learnt the hirojoshi scale and made a riff using it, which turned into this Hirojoshi by Theo Goslett on SoundCloud - Create, record and...

    It's not super amazing, nor are there fantastical riffs. But I did spend a lot of my time on it, and I'd like to know what you guys think :) Kirlian by TommyChao on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free warning: there is 1 djent in this song, just in case that'd ruin it for...
  10. Music: Recording Studio Me on leads. Greg on rhythm guitar, Troy on bass. my younger brother on drums - used a V-drum kit provided by Sacha aka ENDITOL's studio to record him then ran him through Superior 2 Avatar & Metal Foundry for the drum sound. Axe FX on guitars...

    Hey fellas, just wanted to share this little thing I recorded to explore some new techniques ( for me). Excuse the sloppy playing, as I did this more to practice mixing than to practice playing. Also, I'm more of a bassist. First of all, this is only 1 guitar track. I used the Hass...

    I'ma get right to the point. Here is some music. Listen to it, then tell me what sucks about it.
  14. Music: Recording Studio
    This just came out today: I've been lucky enough to have had access to this for a while now, and it is easily the best sounding out-of-the-box metal drum sound I've ever heard, I can't recommend it highly enough. I've been sneakily using it on some...

    This probably sounds like shit since I used multitrack on my iphone, and there's a few mistakes in there. Is this something I should keep or just scrap? Critique is welcome.

    Yeah, I totally loved Final Fantasy VI (on the SNES) when I was a kid and it had some of the best music in video games (even to this day). One of my favorite themes was Atma Weapon (aka Ultima Weapon). Around 2000 and 2001 I learned a ton of songs from FF6 and FF7 on guitar after replaying...

    Band name = Horizons, label = monarch records. Small, new label, hardly roadrunner, but still, I'm a happy engineer.
  18. Music: Recording Studio
    So I'm in the process of redoing a lot of my songs, and with this one, I decided to do a solo at the beginning (some of you may have seen this on Google+). Well my roommate gets home from work yesterday, and I ask him if he had heard it. He says "Yea, and your friend on Google+ was right, your...

    Hey dudes, I just tracked a solo for one of my band's songs, I'd love to get some feedback on it. I deliberately wanted a slightly slippery/loose sound to it, do you guys think it works? Cheers!
