This is nice! I like these songs ambience, airy with a faraway nostalgic feeling.

I’m not sure I’m fan about the 20 kbps compression… I would have prefered something like a tape-recording, even on an old tape, that would have gave I warmed sound, but it’s a personal taste.

Gave a quick listen and like the overall sound – dreamy, hazy, lo-fi – reminds me of Sparklehorse (RIP) or early Beck recordings. I’ll listen more – keep up the great work and congrats on the release!

Thank you for taking your time to check it out and share your feedback Fabrice and Ted, I appreciate it!

Ha I just understood that 20 kbps is the name of the label, not the real compression rate! Sorry! :upside_down_face:
But that seems there is something downsampled in. Anyway, pleasant album!

Yes lol, and I made the album to be 20kbps ogg vorbis format in celebration of 20kbps Recordings, which is my favorite netlabel and lobit netlabel of all time

“I Can Only” sounds kinda like one of my favorite kind of Post Rock/Shoegaze bands, named “Slowdive”. Maybe you know them.Really good, I like the mood. Keep it up! :+1:

“The First Battle of Bull Run” sounds like a mixture of Johnny Cash and Alternative Rock combined with Shoegaze, which I also like, but I clearly prefer “I Can Only”. Anyway, I’m always fascinated when someone creates a guitar song on a tracker, so: It’s cool! :slightly_smiling_face:

Thank you for your feedback TNT.
Also, Slowdive is one of my favorite bands and I’m delighted that you noticed that I wore their influence on my sleeves when recording I Can Only!

Recording guitars and vocals in Renoise with the #Line Input device seems to be intuitive for the way I tend to be producing lately. Usually my guitar and vocal parts are between 1 to 4 patterns long… occasionally 8 patterns or more. So I don’t really need to rewire renoise to another daw for recording and multitracking. I just ‘plug’ into renoise via #Line and have fun manipulating what I record with DSPs and collected VST effects

Awesome awesome awesome! I love these songs.

Very nice tracks man Congrats.I know you are trying for a signature sound and to my ears you have achieved that but like other songs of yours that I listened to i would like a little bit cleaner vocals,not much because it could destroy the overall feel of the tracks.

Thank you orrigans for listening and your feedback!

stoixman Thank you for checking them out and I appreciate your constructive critism very much. My brother, also a musician, has been telling me the same thing about the vocals. This is good to know and am working on ways to fix this
