not on board a space station/10

should be in this forum; http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/foru....php?forumid=52
the timing gets pretty bad at the chorus, seems you need to sync things up better
like your voice though

I had to record everything in mono because of a problem in my software, but if I may ask, how did you know that it wasn't stereo? I'm still new to recording and can't really tell the difference

I didn't really notice a timing issue. I honestly didn't try to come up with something extremely similar to the original, so I made that line a bit shorter, but thanks for your feedback I was looking for a Cover Songs forum, but couldn't find it. Should I remove this post from The Pit?

Yea there's definite timing issues throughout. If you didn't notice it at the time it doesn't surprise me that you don't notice it now, but it's pretty obvious. Especially around the chorus.

Your voice sounds pretty good though. Play with a metronome all the time, or learn the drums

Well, I'll make sure to download a metronome app of something. I didn't actually do the drums, my friend did them for me, since I can't drum x)

You need to make your voice more British.

The timing issues aren't your fault, your singing and guitar playing is tight but the drum samples just aren't synched right. The second kickdrum comes in too fast during the first few measures and then the snare is off too on several occasions. But don't worry about that, I dig your voice and it's a nice cover. It clearly took a lot of time judging by all the overdubs so be proud!

You made me laugh, good sir x') But I actually think you're right, I'll keep the accent in mind on my next cover

Thanks for the feedback and support! Our drummer can't keep a steady beat even though he's an incredibly fast metal drummer :l He's starting to practice with a metronome now. It did take a lot of time. Two months to be exact ._. I was learning how to record as I'm going along. I'm very glad you like it and thanks again for your support

It just comes with time and developing better ears, and it's definitely more obvious with headphones. I dunno man, you can just hear that there's no width. I'm always listening for the individual sounds and when they're all panned center it's a dead giveaway.

But even then, there's a quite a big difference between an old recording that's in mono on purpose (before stereo existed) and a stereo recording artificially converted to mono, which a lot of songs on Youtube are... It actually bothers that me that most people don't care or notice. You'll see pop songs all the time with millions of views in mono, with the audio clipping and shit because the average listener can't tell.

Well, I guess I'll have to try to learn when to use stereo and mono, then. Thanks for the info
