Everything and Nothing / Re: Remasters: To tweak or not to tweak?
« on: September 22, 2014, 08:23:14 PM »
To me when I was mastering my own music is not to slam it hot and add a compressor, etc. just to make it hot....
As one reads a lot of the old master engineers, they will tell you mastering is subtle, just to bring out the best of the song and album as a whole. To bring up the highs to emphasis something or bring up the lows to emphasis without making the song muddy.....
Mastering can be well done without having to up the levels.....each song should be enjoyed at it's normal, intended level the musician wanted.....

It's definitely not about the gear, it's about what's inside that drives one's passion and creativity to make music.
My gear is average, but my passion to make music is about emotions, images and conveying that as music......
That's what should drive one to make music and their passion may it be music or being a chef, etc....doesn't matter....find your inner passion and creativity and go forth and make it happen...

I appreciate your efforts, but the album I've listened from you - Alternate Realms 2, have good ideas, but the sound quality is not very good, I'm sorry. But this is what I'm discussing here, good ideas that are lost in the middle of weak setups. The weak link should always be you and not the gear, so if anything have to improve is the artist not the gear.

This also goes back to the latest trend we are experiencing in the music field is that everyone wants their music portable and streamed which is heavily compressed and low bitrate, etc....
Many articles on this current trend and why people like us can't really stand it, because we musicians want the highest fidelity and quality, but to reach the masses as of late, we have to cater to what's popular to get our music heard....
if you heard my album on an actual CD, you will hear the entire spectrum of my sounds, etc.:)

This is why I wish whomever within the government quit padding the numbers on unemployment, etc.....
They are telling us, the public that it is all peachy and rainbows, well, I call their bullshit.....
people are still looking for jobs. most have given up now and are economy is still pretty bad.....
whoever these government people are telling us that everything is looking up seriously need to take off their rose colored glasses and see the truth...
My girlfriend is still looking for a job here in Texas and supposedly they say Texas has the most job growth....
where oh where is the jobs then....:)

I wish you the best of luck man..

Art and Literature, Movies and TV / Re: Now Reading, pt 2

I just recently finished this book too and I thought it was good to read for action, suspense, etc.....definitely up there with his other Robert Langdon novels, but this one at the end, let's just say the game has now changed for this series of Robert Langdon books:)


Inferno by Dan Brown
This story stays pretty close to the Dan Brown mold: The main character, a Harvard professor, uses his vast knowledge of art history to save humanity from extinction. There is a young, pretty woman; codes to be broken; apocalyptic scares; many chase scenes; and plenty of plot twists. The book is getting slammed pretty hard by the critics. But, I don't need everything to hang together perfectly or be highly original when I'm reading for entertainment.

when your job sucks the living creativity out of you due to educated idiots that you have to hold their hand on every little thing, including technology that by the time you get home, you feel like a damn zombie....
I mean...literally, they call you 1 minute before class or something, saying the computer is broken and you go take a look at it, and you politely tell them the power was turned off and you push the power button and like magic, bazinga....the computer works:)

I think one of these days when teleport devices are made, then we wouldn't have to worry about mailing such things out, we can just zap the cd's, etc to someone right after ordering with in seconds:)
