Prosper Proper songs (unique thread)

Hi,

my first song where I sing … Pretty scary tho. :slight_smile:
Everything is made with my instruments, my hands and Renoise with only bare plugins (and zynaddsubfx for some synths.)

Hope you’ll enjoy it !

ps: My voice is naturally awfull but I had difficulties to mix it correctly… If someone have some advices, I would be pleased !

Nice! Liked the lyrics too (as I can understand because I’m french. :slightly_smiling_face:)

About your voice integration, the voice track is certainly a bit weak, even in the mix, even that’s not unpleasant.

Thanks !

Yep, the voice track is weak, I think it’s related to my vocal techniques, I might try to sing a little louder to get more abrasive harmonics. I also use a beta sm58a mic (bare setup to take violin & with pop filter for vocals), it’s rather possible I’m not using my setup correctly but the sound of the nude track seems correct at first glance.

For this song, when I add more voice in the mix, the sound is not that clear and the voice remains desperately in the medium. I tried to apply some EQ to correct that but “t” and “s” became an unpleasing sharp ear killer… Maybe with better EQ there’s something to do, but I’d rather record new vocals and try to fix the source.

Next try this week end !

Pretty good track.As for your vocals if you try harder you wiil get better results for sure.Your voice is not bad at all

I’m going to post all my songs in a single topic, that prevents creating so much threads.

My last one (just finished) in a different style of everything I posted here before… Mostly punk/swing with a little funk inside. All instruments by me, with only bare plugins, as usual.
Again I tried to work out my voice, I hope it’s better than before.

Hope you’ll enjoy it

I worked a lot these days… So here’s another song I started yesterday and just finished:

Typical Rock… I think on this one voice mastering is rather good, I just have to work on my vocals to get a better sound :slight_smile:

Hi everybody,

I made a new (punk rock) song with a new Japanese fender stratocaster I recently bought… This guitar is so easy to play… Gosh, why didn’t throw my old aria pro 2 before ?

As usual, only drum samples and standard renoise effects (including all guitar dists… this cabinet simulator is pretty good… :slight_smile: )

Hope you enjoy it :slight_smile:

A long time ago, I was composing a lot of House/Techno/EDM… BTW that’s why I always used trackers, it’s sooo convenient for this kind of music…
This is the first House track I’m happy with since 10 years I’d say !

Hope you like it ! :slight_smile:

The mix between house music and real played electric guitar is pleasant, that’s groovy and chilled.


(zbouboutchi) #11

That was surprisingly difficult to play that with straight and clean rhythm. Usually I don’t play that fast, that was a good exercise (but it’s still not perfect…) !

Nice track! I really dig it. A lot of variation. Well done! :slight_smile:

Hey thanks guys ! This is heartwarming :slight_smile:

Another track I just uploaded, funny rock/mambo style… I still don’t like my voice, nothing new… :smiley:

yes for sure :slight_smile:

she took her bicycle
to go out and celebrate
when he saw her on her bike.
he invited her for a mambo.

after that long dance
they talked about their holidays
shared a mojito
on a coconut milk base

on the way back
she offered to make him a coffee.
under the spell of her attire
he of course accepted

he went up in his suite
she manages to take his hand
he wonders if it’s not going too fast.
she hopes he’ll stay tomorrow.

she reverts to her beautiful babydoll
the one she reserves for the evenings of celebration
she drags him under the sheets
by telling him that she’s a guy

he pretends to be surprised
happy to be in his arms
he admits to her that he is a girl
but she already knew that.

LOL … not my taste exactly, but I enjoyed it :slight_smile: … Great singing and top notch mix! I can imagine that this becomes a radio hit.
