Hey, Ben... lovin' the sound of your voice... and the "playful" nature of your tunes... so magically "Queen"-like... you(and your music) are simply awsome! -M-

Thanks for your input on my blog Ben. I do appreciate it.

Confession: I do listen to my music too. Mostly in the car....

All your songs are great! You are a Pop song Master my friend.

Hi Ben - thanks for reply and visit!!! Def free form from our point of view - the tracks were all done in 1 take live!!! Glad you enjoyed our offering!!!!

Keep up the good work!!!


1/6/2008 12:47:49 PM

Ben - sounds like some tight production is going on here!!!

Listened to 'Give yourself a Name' and it's TIGHT!!!


1/1/2008 5:36:47 PM

Hi Ben,

Talking about your mix: There's nothing lost and everything to be gained by saving your song file but starting a new additional version - Getting the "flow" you want is crucial (you can't polish a turd if the original part isn't up to it!). But also try to avoid too much reverb and usually it's a bad idea to use different reverbs in the same song - Try sending the reverb to a Bus (Logic definitely, possibly GarageBand?) where you can control and audition the exact amount of the same reverb fed into each track. Reverbs use complex algorithms which can have unexpected consequences when mixed with others. Slight panning might also help. Try the stereo Spreader (in LogicPro). Just experiment on a copy. It's difficult to offer any real advice without sitting in front of it.

Sometimes just a small change can help everything to fall naturally into better position - Sometimes not!!

Someone else might have something more to advise.

As I said before, I think the song is strong and your voice good and confident - It's only a matter of improving the clarity of the mix - You'll get there!

HAPPY NEW YEAR Ben ... and have yourself a GREAT "08 !!!!


12/31/2007 10:27:51 AM

"Take The Gold" - You have a great voice and it's a very strong song/melody. But, to be honest (no point in me being otherwise), the mix is a bit muddy - Not quite enough spacial separation, especially with the keyboard parts. All rescuable though.

- Just my opinion and don't let my opinion discourage you!

Respect from Robin
