Re: SONGWRITING COMPETITION - SWC033 May 2020 - Winners announced

Anyway ... I'd love to chime in with some feedback as well. Mostly technical in nature for some productions. I just can't help it - if I hear a sample package that I know/use myself, I just want to reach out and help you improve. That is what the Mix Challenge community is all about. :phones: Great...

When I rate the entries, I pay more attention to what I like, personally, than the grade of fulfillment of the mission. I think that the composers making stuff pleasant listening to, should know this. There is no problem with that but most of your comments doesn't tell anything only that if you lik...

No they are not presets. Every sound is made in the piece. Sorry, they are not what you wanted them to be. I forgot to ask you first. Next time maybe. Reason I used quotes on word stock is that in that they do not have enough organic feel to them and they sound very same during performance/play. It...

No, that was one things: "a production in the so called "Avant-garde Metal"/Funk Metal genre" Which was explained by MrFox: "But the genre is basically nothing more than a blend of Experimental and Progressive Rock/Metal mixed with Funk elements. " So two genres, and there should be switches betwee...

Because the track is collaboration project I include comments from both of us. Jilliam (Richard Watashi) send me his feedback so I add them here. I will mark it so you know who said what but I will always start with his words. I do also, as always include basic statistics for track to compare. Jilli...

One criterion for my system of calculation of points was that I was expecting to hear both 1) funk and 2) hard rock elements within song. If I felt that one or both of those genre elements were missing or were not there clearly enough, I dropped some points. What I see are two different styles " GE...

If your talking about the solo-type part, it was, in my head :smile: I wanted to inject my personal style more, and wasn't feeling it on the keyboard. So I composed a solo with a guitar in mind in my head, then figured out the notes on the keyboard. This was one element of track that I like. You us...
