Shit that YOU MADE

Jody Hatton (@xdude) 10 years, 4 months ago

Hello! My name is Jody and I’m sick of seeing people post stupid shit that other people made.

Not on here — on Facebook. The latest plague seems to be quote images. Not text quotes, images with nothing but words in them. UGH! Consume consume!

I’m not exactly sure why I’m so threatened by it all — I mean, as a creator, noticing that 99% of people don’t make their own stuff should give me comfort.

But anyway. Here’s some stupid, pointless, mediocre shit I made — BUT I MADE IT!

Please post something YOU made!

<3

Here is a link to one of my band’s songs. We aren’t huge or anything so we don’t have a record album yet. But if you appreciate live music, perhaps you’ll enjoy :)

@qualohuasca, Oikein hyvä, reminds me of the 90s. Super funky and energizing.

You could get more clarity in the mix if you cut the low mids a little though, in my opinion.

@manimal, thank you. You may be correct: I usually mix the songs so long I grow deaf to them. :D I’m still learning, thanks for the advice. I was kind of having trouble hearing where the mud was.

Your stuff’s very good as well! Very deep and bouncy. The “riff” is the kind you don’t get bored of very easily. I am missing the action at around 12k though, you know, the sparkle. I forget to concentrate on it as well, but it can really add “excitement” to the sound. Yummy!

@qualohuasca, I appreciate the feedback.

I know that feel, I’ll wear my ears out and think I’m doing a fantastic mix, just to listen to it later and find it’s rubbish. I always manage to screw up the final compression.
As for the 12k, yeah you’re right… I’m always too careful with the treble, I think my ears may be overly sensitive to frequencies above 5k.

Mud/wood is usually very easy to tame at any stage of the process. Most mastering people make a gentle dip somewhere in the 200-500 range, right where the mud is the most present. Not only does it reduce muddiness, it also puts a slight gap between the bass weight and the rest of the track, which makes the sounds more chiseled and textured.
A lot of the time, a dip around 4.5k-5k is a good idea too, to tame the harshness and make it sound less digital, more easy on the ears.

Keep up the good work, I really love the track you posted.
