This is a new song I’ve been working on for an amp simulator demo. I wanted a light rock, Joe Satriani type vibe. Any feedback on the song or mix would be appreciated.
Really nice - Great melodies and tones, very cool swinging groove too. I love how you arrange the different tones to come in like different voices.
For the full Satch vibe, I was expecting the solo section after the drum break/breakdown to be a little more furiously legato, screaming and manic, with some big dive-bombs, perhaps? (Maybe something like the bridge in “Always With Me …” from 1:06 in that song) You went pretty smooth and laid back there…Something with a little more biting tone and aggression might provide some more contrast there… just a thought… still great as is though!
Mix thoughts: The low mids might be just a little too full - that bass guitar and the toms have a lot of low-mids in them. I’m thinking it might translate better across different systems if you trimmed that just a tad.
This is great - you should be happy with it - really nice composition!
BTW, what is the amp sim? Sounds excellent, but I’m sure the great sound is more down to the player than the gear.
Thanks. I’ll try to get rid of a bit of the the low mid mud. You are right I didn’t go all out with the solo. Maybe I should have. My guitar with the whammy bar is having electrical issues unfortunately, so no divebombs.
The amp sim is MTurboAmp(not officially released yet) from Melda production. I think it sounds good, but I’m biased. I’m happy to say I created all the sounds in the song(except the drums). I designed the amps, the impulse responses, bass synth, etc. It was fun to do for that fact alone.
Thanks for the feedback and kind words.
Beautiful music here @Chandler, I like this a lot. It’s great that you have your own sound for instrumental rock. I hope you post some more for us!
Sounding real good, @Chandler !
This song has a very nice feel. Very laid back and enjoyable. Nice job!
Very nice/cool…fav at 1:12 ish
