    So I have been into music my whole life and have just now gotten into a band that actually wants to move forward and it feels amazing. I wanted to create this thread as an outlet for people to share music they have made regardless of genre. Post away!

    Here's my band's first single. Feedback would be appreciated!

    I like it Shaddoll (y), it just seemed the vocalist was a bit too quiet at parts but other than that it was Sehr Gut :sneakylove:

    I like it, kind of a 90's punk and slight joan jett vibe

    It's alright man, certainly beats my crap. In most modern rock bands I fail to see them multi-track voices. It's easy. Super easy. Harmonize in any way. A lead vocalist could also just repeat the same line in a different pitch. So honestly do this and I'd probably be able to tell you apart from the different rock bands today.

    There's some parts where I could recommend some backing vocals, but that's my personal opinion.


    But for now great job, and uh the vocals are quite quiet. I recommend you turn the backing track down just like 10%


    But that's my opinion on your band's hard work. Don't take it as an insult. I'm picky anyway, and most of these bands that sound the same to me are actually very popular among the youth today.

    I rate it about a 6.5 or so out of 10. Great stuff, but is this the final product? Also who did produce this?


    I could go on and on though. A band Multi-tracking vocals, or simply having backing vocals will probably out shine the other bands that don't do that. However, some bands lack another singer. The thing is if you're standard rock setup (drums, bass, guitar and vocals.) then it's really hard to stand out in my opinion. Keyboards, piano, synthesizer, brass instruments. violins and harmonics. I don't know. Try to stand out.



    This has some multi-tracking audio, it's also a duet. This is ok, but the only complaint I have on this song is the backing track is too damn loud. Quiet it down. I love to hear singers. But I also love the instrumental. But when the two are balanced out, most of the time the guitars are shredding the voice.

    one sort of actual attempt at a cover of a demo song.

    A demo of a demo?


    Just need a piano track, but I record these at 12:00 AM, so not really possible. :(

    However, this is OK. But not the best. Can still be polished. In many ways.

    Hey buddies check out my bands very raw recordings, like every other LA band were broke as fuck but we are in the process to relase something very polished up so please excuse the grittiness of this demo. It starts of pretty loud so it would be wise to lower your volume before playing the first track lol
    Sorry if this isn't your style but be prepared.

    This is actually really good, aside from, like everyone else said, the lead vocalist being too quiet. Again, as everyone else has been saying, the vocals would really shine if you had backing vocals at an octave above the lead's. Still very good though.

    This is cool man. You have good ideas and chord progressions, but there's a lot of mud in your low-mids.

    This is rad. Definitely very gritty, but I hear a lot of potential.

    uhh, not a EDM head, but uh from 0 to 0:20 you built up a lot of drama and then let it just turn into synths and chimes making their gay sound. if you still have the project add more of a bass drum with snare and hi hat hit by a pedal

    but i mean i can't help u mix or master it because I never really learned your program that well. I've only got tips lmao

    and the second laugh i think should start low pitched (bass) and then scale down into higher pitched (adding more tenor) idk just an idea.
