    I think there's a topic for this but it's buried somewhere between the 50th and 67th page here in Off Topic...

    Anyway, yeah, I don't have any recorded material from my prior bands. Cause they sucked.

    Currently looking for a DJ partner though.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    I make music and DJ. I'm gonna try to get club gigs when I move to San Francisco but who knows.

    Does anyone want to collaborate on a song? Like, I'll send you a drum track and you put vocals or guitars over it or something. Completely for fun, not serious, and we can send it to a bunch of board members for their own additions and post the result. Yes/no?

    Most of you guys will probably like our stuff. We're shoegaze with coachella-esque influences like The Cure, Radiohead, Pulp, etc.

    I've got the old-school, the ridiculously old-school and the newer, but mostly just for fun up on MySpace. There's loads of stuff floating around out there.

    I am but a lowly drummer, though.

    Nice. Growing pains, even at my age.
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    I made a beat, what format would you prefer? I can just make a big wav file with loops so you guys can arrange it on your own?

    wav file is good. post it up somewhere.

    it's not arranged in any special way. it's mostly 4-8 bar loops so you can chop it up however you want. 115 bpm.

    BUMP!

    For all you guys that use a computer to make beats and what not, what type of soundcard do you use? Or do you use a USB?

    I'm building a comp to hopefully use in some sort of production and could use some advice/input, from what I've heard the USB is the way to go.

    Thx.

    Thx Jazz, I was going to get the FastTrack Pro, should I get the Smartmedia instead? And should I get any sort of specific soundcard or will a standard one work fine?

    Thx again...

    I never used FastTrack but SmartMedia works with just about every instruments memory. I use mine with Korg- Roland keyboards and samplers.

    has anyone started working on the beat Trick posted?
    ive been pretty busy..but i'll see what i can do this weekend.

    Dylanja.. i use a usb interface to record my stuff. dont really know if having a good soundcard would help with the quality of your recordings... one would think it would. altho i imagine a usb2.0 interface would be just as effective.
    but dont take any advice from me..im no sound engineer and my recordings sound like crap.

    So here is a song we finished mixing yesterday.

    The band doesn't have a name yet, so I just put "And Castle" which is sort of an inside joke. Anyway. I play drums.

    If you like it, tell your friends. If not, tell your enemies.

    The Thief

    Hey, I just got done listening to this. I'm really impressed, and I'm not just saying that cause it's you.

    I have some notes, and you can take them or leave them:

    -The first five seconds remind me of "Can't Change Me" by Chris Cornell.
    -Then when the keyboard comes in, it sounds a bit like a Coldplay intro
    -Then when the drums kick in it really becomes a song of its own, and sounds good.
    -The vocals slightly let the rest of the song down, I feel. The singer does not have a bad voice, it's just really unremarkable. It sounds like someone's uncle singing in the shower. Also he needs to be really careful not to sound like a singer doing an impression of another singer. That's the worst mistake a vocalist can make.
    -The instrumental with clapping at 2:10 into the song is awesome.
    -The only drum part I don't like is the three high-hats in a row when the singer sings "Cannot stay here" at 1:04, 1:08 and 1:12, and again when he sings "Falling again" at 1:40, 1:44 and 1:48. It just feels weak compared to the rest of the song.
    -The ending suddenly sounds a bit like System Of A Down and I think that is partly because of the guitar sound but also partly because the singer veers dangerously close to doing an impression of Serj on a couple of occasions. Like I said, he should be away of that.
    -Otherwise, it's a strong song, although there's a few times where it feels like it's building up to a really melodic singalong chorus which it never really delivers. Maybe that's intentional, maybe not. I dunno. Depends what type of band you are and what type of songs you want to write.

    Anyway, that's just my two cents. I really like it, and I want to hear more!
