I will post a Drum Track created by me
The contestants will take the drum track and add whatever instruments they want to it
They will mix their track and post it on their accounts (Purevolume, myspace, Dmusic, etc.)
So after a nice break, I thought I'd resurrect this from the dead


I already have a drum track pretty much laid out, just need to record it, then you people do your magic.


RULES:

No tampering of the drums track....that means no looping of segments or deleting parts.

You must submit the finish product on your accounts, 7 days after the track has been posted, if not you will be automatically eliminated from the contest.

There is no limit on how many instruments/ how many layers of instruments can be used and vocals are considered an instrument.

The system will go as follows.
1st place: 3 points- 2nd place: 2 points - 3rd Place- 1 point

I'm going to hold off on signing up for now...i want to have a listen to the track first.
Plus with classes starting all out this Monday I'll be busy and have no idea if I'll have much time to record...

thats the exact reason why I don;t post the track right away. the whole point of this contest is to put you outside of your comfort zone and to improve your songwriting.

Actually less time to record does not put you out of your comfort zone as much as it is less time to do things... School kinda takes quite a few hours out of my days now too. Although next semester I will have a class where I will get to play guitar I hope it is sweet and that the teacher is awesome.

Cool. I was hoping this would come back... but wasn't the last track slow and simple? I was hoping for something at breakneck speed....

Edit: oh yeah I'm in also lol

It's an expression, maybe you don't know it, but it means very fast.

I was just pointing out that the last drum track was also slow simple, and I rember you saying you wanted to do something fast...
#14
oh yea Im always ready for fast , yea I felt the last one was BY FAR the weakest one. Less of that crap more aggression or at least a fair mix.


2 more people and I can post the drum track

You can do shred at any tempo, but maybe not thrash.

cool,

you get all your problems sorted out then??



kinda, the buzz isnt gone so I just used a basic 2 microphone set up, it turns out Im going to wind up buying a hush pedal/noisegate or a noise reduction thing.

So excuse the bass-ness of the kick drum, its not that bad

it definetely does a tiny bit, which is my fault admittedly, I just started a new band and I play guitar, so, my drumming isn;t as tip top as it has in the past. If its that bad, I'll rerecord it!

#39
nah, it should be fine. i wouldn't re-record it now since other people may already have some stuff written up for it. i got some neat ideas for this one tho..

congrats on the new band!
