<Over-used title mode>Message in a bottle !

Hello, first post on the propellerhead software users forum, feels great !

This post has the following purposes :

- having feedback on my songs, that are actually not "songs" because I can't sing. I'm not handicaped, but I sing really bad ! Everything you'll hear on my soundcloud will be instrumental/digital.

- getting advices about "how to improve my songs/songwriting abilities/mixing" (some of you will notice that peak levels are not exactly the same with every song), etc.

Nota bene : music I make is essentially "rock/pop" and people who have an exclusive taste for techno/electronic music won't appreciate my sounds much. I love electronic music too, but my preference goes to instrumental sound recording !

Here is the link : https://soundcloud.com/florianchampourlier

Hope you'll enjoy listening to it !

Bye, Flo

Very nice!

I was just listening to your stuff... very nice! I especially enjoyed "Quiet groove".

Are you using Reason exclusively?
I would enjoy seeing your gear/software list.

just gave it a listen. Damn, would love to play like that
and thumbs up for not singing if you allready think you can't haha!
better than to think you do... etc ^^

"Sunset Lane" (love the melody of the delayed guitar combinated with the dry snare), "Crystal Jails" and "Quiet Groove" are my favs!
"Hope and Sorrow" seems too overcompressed for my taste, but might be on purpose?

cheers!

I don't know if "Hope and Sorrow" is over compressed or if the others are undercompressed...not a pro in the art of mixing sounds, but I hope getting better ! maybe should I turn down the "makeup" value in the compressor, to get the same level as the other songs.

Love to read that you loved sunset lane...it's been a hard song to record and it reminds me of a great challenge...I promise I will tune down the compression of "Hope and Sorrow", and also "Emotional contradiction" that has the same problem.

Cheers!
