no participants in SWC 10

No participants this month is hard. I've already thought something like that. It´s maybe not only because of the tricky theme, I think there a just to few musicans in here and 4 weeks are real short if you need to find musicans with time and lust to support you. 4 weeks for a mixing competition is t...

So I would pick the HORNET Songkey mk2 plugin.
Might be usefull for a drummer with less harmony skills.

Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC09 May 2018 - Winners announced

Thank you for your comments. Ok to be one out of three is nothing to be proud of. I took the chance for this month theme to do somthing completly different. :hmmm: I have lots of railstation and ambience samples from an earlier project and so I build up the story. What I don´t had in mind was, that ...

Mister Natural did a cover/remix of a Waterboys song. It is a very indiviual interpretation of the famous "whole of the moon" The sound reminds me to David Bowie. Partly because of the low pitched vocals. you hit a nice dark atmosphere in this one. Maybe the upfront drum sound does not fit in the at...

This is the idea of a radioplay or maybe a computer game cut scene, what ever. I used hundrets of free samples from freesounds.org and looperman.com and some other. The story is about a spy on the run. Starting at a subway station he gets help by a female radio voice and lead out to the harbour wher...

I don´t understand the sence of that sentence.
Under one major condition: it must not be just sound effects or one single sound source.
So it can. If you have only 2 options out of 2 , where is there a major condition? :headscratch:

holy crap! I thought the composing, arranging, lyrics and choice of Instruments/harmonics and sounds would be the main part of a song competition!? I thougt at least a 2 channel tape recorder should be enough to present a song composing. Now @FixInTheMix shows up that a loud mix and some clippings c...

Not easy to rate which song is better when they are in different genres. donkey tugger-Loosing Grip: This song reminds me of a late 70th Bowie. Could even be a soundtrack for some film noir. Comes in with a nice intro and a nice build up to calm down again. I like this arangement. Maybe the ending i...

So here is another coop production with Tbase and Nige doing all the vocals, bass and guitars. Drums are programmed with much love and detail. It all starts with some basic harmonic ideas and a theme for the lyrics. It´s kind of drama about a girl on heroine. Lots of work from the first scratch to t...
