    Default Your Assistance is Needed. Please.

    Okay. So I took my first steps into recording and mixing down today...
    This is the product: http://myspace.com/coruscateband

    IF you guys could take a listen and tell me how it sounds, it would be eternally appreciated.

    No rhyming here.

    You really need a full band. You probably knew that. There were some nice guitar sounds, but it was just really empty. There also was some weird timing with the riffs going on. Not in a Tool type way either.

    But I can see where you want to take this. It was not bad by any stretch. It just needs fleshing out and rehearsal and stuff.

    . the lead line is pretty cool, i can hear the hints of sitar in there. theres alot of flange(to my fucked up ears at least) too which i cant stand, but then again thats just me and everyone gives me a cock eye for doing so. the rhythm line is a little bland, the tone sucks to be quite honest( i should mention that i love greg ginn-esque shit tone, so im not a tone snob.) but it sounds like you are going for a more professional sound. i dont know what youre running through so i cant tell you if its your amp or your setup. your rhythm tone would be perfect for fucking sludge though. im just being honest but i hope it helps if possible. its just my opinion. whats your general setup?you record direct?

    Honestly it reminds me a lot of Neil Youngs work from the soundtrack to Dead Man.

    For the record, I liked the sludgy rhythm tone.

    Thanks for the quick responses.

    My setup goes: guitar> Toneport UX2>
    From there is goes into the computer via USB (which could explain some of the poor quality)

    Gearbox (digital effects program on computer) > Audacity



    From there I mixed it down to MP3 format, so it's not professional by any means. Just something to work with. It's got a distorted rhythm guitar line topped with a delay induced lead guitar... just improvisations. There's no bass or drums which is the reason for the "thin" sound.

    It's a good building block. Get a group together and jam on it.

    Thanks bballarl.

    Yeah... It would just be me in this little experiment. I've got a friend who could guitar with me, and another friend that might be interested in drumming though I haven't shown him anything yet.

    dont underestimate the power of a GOOD DRUM MACHINE. listen to big black and early NIN, to me i think itd fit well with what your doing.

    NIN industrial sound, and Tool's weird time signatures are definate influences.

    I guess I should also say.. that I recorded both parts on one take each... and it was all mostly improvisation.

    That would explain the timing issues between the riffs. Not that it was terribly off.

    Yeah... there were a couple places that I got lost.. probably could've turned the rhythm guitar track down a tad. I had a metronome going, but it took a couple bars to get into it.

    I thought it was very good.I had a suggestion that Gleam is a much better name for the band than Coruscate,but I Googled and there already is The Gleam.I actually think Good Days Last is a pretty good name(more memorable and easier to say).
