    Well it's in my sig now, so everyone knows in advance I'm not as good technically as they think they are, and a couple of guys fun is ruined before it's started. Should be fairly straight forward showcase threads from here on in. :bow:

    I think you should cut everything above 10K and everything below 120KHz, use a 12 second reverb on everything (only Altiverb will suffice) and compress everything with a 20-1 ratio on the 2 buss if you want to compete with the big boys. Also, if you don't use Nexus 2 on every track there is no hope for your redemption. Heed these words or suffer the consequences of a life behind a mask and only a big pink cat for company.

    ... I wouldn't mind mixing a batch for ya Judge. So if ever...
    I'll keep saying it, there's a 'sound' there. Like Ultravox, or Kraftwerk. Really signature. Highly recognisable.
    But mostly; enjoyable!

    I could sing on this, but I'm not very sure at all, right now, that there is really a need for a vocalist with these tunes :wink:

    As @artwerkski said, "there's a "sound" there (...) enjoyable" ; surely it could be enhanced with some mixing/mastering, but the supposed enhancing mixing must be done with a very, very sure taste, to not ruin the "signature" that is there :sad:

    This has some sort of "monumental" quality :wink:
    ...Something uncontrollable, something fateful, a kind of an epic breath, I'm at a loss of words (english being not my native language) :rofl:

    Although English is not your native language, I grok your meaning.

    I think that many of the songs could do with a heavy does of stringendo to avoid attenuation, and maybe make small tweak using Izotopes Phrenic Transmorgifier....that will set you on the right path. :cool:
    Seriously, Judge Dredd, this isn't what I normally listen to--though I don't mind it at all--so, instead of any technical advice (or bullshit technical advice [See: above] I'll just say that Games I Play, Northern Lights - Southern Crosses and Hello World (which both sound kind of similar,) and Second Choice are my favorite tracks; very listenable.
    I usually play my tracks to friends who either don't listen to Hip Hop or Soul (or whatever weirdness I make from time to time,) or people who can't stand it, I find if I can get a response: "These tracks in particular were my favorite because....," or a "They all suck shit because they're not Metal, but these are the most tolerable tracks," it's a solid indicator that I'm at least on the right path....not that I always follow the path, but at least then I know where it is.
    I don't think that anyone who likes one style of music can't at least appreciate another, as so long as it's quality. That being said, as I mentioned, this is very listenable. Well done.
    :shalom:

    (I do Graphic Design (see links below to an unused album cover,) and if you have an idea or a theme for an album cover and want me to tool around with it, let me know. The worst that can happen is that nothing comes of it. :yes:)

    ok ya got me there.. but still the hippies sort of "appropriated" (stole) the term from "Martian" language
    as they were wont to do, among other things, such as not showering, sleeping on the floor, and smoking up
    everyone else's weed while no one was looking, on and on... :bleh:

    If only you could have Alison Goldfrapp sing on these, I hear a similar style.

    "I don't have any issues with my tracks as they are. I'm not an engineer or producer, I just don't have the ears for it, and I work on the principal that if my songs are ever picked up to be released, it doesn't matter how 'correct' my mixes are, everything will be rerecorded by a label anyway. It's a waste of my time to use it to try and perfect pointless mixes I won't be able to do when I can be writing more songs instead.
    I genuinely appreciate and value advice and technical tips given, though understand, whether right or wrong, I'm not, and never will be, able to act on them."

    Enjoyed the listen Judge.... good album !.....even gooder comment ! :like: :hifive: :goodpost:
