Hello everyone! We've made some changes to how The Musikians work. The old thread has been deleted, since no one submitted music before the deadline.
The wiki, along with our rules and about, have been modified. I highly suggest you to revisit the wiki.
Info & rules for The Musikians (MUST READ BEFORE SUBMITTING):http://themusikians.wikia.com/wiki/The_Musikians_Wiki
Submit your track in .flac or .wav format here:http://www.mediafire.com/filedrop/filedrop_hosted.php?drop=fbe0cc900b3c24bf4ee1beb2762ca58d6e28af32321edd955eb669effa4ad5a5
Good luck everyone!>picture unrelated
Since the new software allows us to edit posts, this is the progress post.
Album title: "25"
>Mandate of Heaven
>21-10-2017 - 31-10-2017
>Homesick (feat. Kerusira)
Total tracks: 8
Total length: 26m 51s
>A Goodbye Screwed
>Hash Pipe Swing (feat. Dead Cats)
I'll have a track to submit soon. It'll be sort of like NATBH and Aliens, from previous albums
There's no such thing as time on musikchan
I realized that I already submitted the track I wanted to submit…back on like the 3rd Musikians album. I ended up just submitting a live track. Hope that's alright.
Dear anon who submitted "Hash Pipe High": I'm going to have to reject this track, since it's skipping. If you can provide me with a version that doesn't skip, then it will be added to the upcoming release. Cheers!
Er, Hash Pipe High or Hash Pipe Swing?
Whoops, it's Hash Pipe Swing. Sorry!
Seems Insum had a Hash Pipe High haha.
That's my only copy of the track, I guess I won't be submitting it…
I suppose I have another track I can submit, though it's not as good as NATBH unfortunately. They can't all be hits!
Wait, can I submit a track that was recorded live?
Sure, I don't see why not. As long as the track's sound isn't all destroyed by bad live recording.
Cool. I'll have stuff to submit for sure then.
Time to pick up action on my part too, I've undeniably been slacking. Updating that list up top soon. :)
uploaded my file. hope you guys like it. it is a bit of a departure from my normal style, while maintaining the mzrt sound
The follow tracks have been rejected because they are longer than 8 minutes in length:
A Goodbye Screwed
how long is rooms? y'all should keep it, fuck the rules. the other one wasn't that good though so no worries
Finally got around to submitting a track. Recording quality isn't perfect, but I like it.
Submitted another! Might get rejected though.
I'm accepting sloppyjam, it's not a balanced mix but everything can be told apart well enough.
Gotta reject death though. The levels are way off; I couldn't make out much lyrics because of how lowly the vocals were mixed in. Is there any way to fix the levels of these recordings?
Both are nice tracks by the way, I like them.
Unfortunately there's not a whole lot I can do to them, it was a single mic recording and the best I can do is play with the EQ to try and bring up the vocal frequencies.
Nevermind that, I could do that too, but that will only create new problems. IMO not worth it.
The songs you've been submitting are killer though, y'all definitely need some proper recordings haha
Well, I did NATBH, #22, and Aliens from previous compilations as well…
My suggestion: No more rejections. if we were particularly good at making music we'd have our own projects….
The requirements for getting in are not hard. All you need is:
>proper volume levels
So that everything can, you know, be heard without ripping your ear drums open.
>minimal mixing effort
Don't leave your sounds fighting for space. Look at a spectral analyzer and observe which frequencies occupy what space.
>get your bass right
Make sure you can hear your bass and don't have it muddy or thin. Doesn't have to be perfect.
Again, doesn't have to be perfect, just not overly dull, ear-splitting or muddy.
You don't need to be on a level where you can run your own projects to be able to do these things.
Here's some good mixing tips I gave earlier: >>31593
Hell, if you need help with improving your recording, or need feedback on a track, just post it here or in our Discord server's #feedback channel. I can help you out if you need some.
How many tracks have been submitted so far?
7, of which 2 accepted. Imma update that status post
So uh, status update?
Updated the status post, 1 track has been added to the album. The chan seems to be pretty dead atm, haha.
It's unusually slow lately, for sure.
I submitted a track.
I'll have a track to submit soon.
Sorry for flooding it with like 4 tracks, but I found a bunch of old stuff on my computer. Hopefully at least one makes the cut.
I've accepted 2 of these submissions. Nice ones!
Yo homies, lets get this album done before Christmas. Last album of 2017!
fo' real dog, we gon do it, we be getting it on, like donkey kong man, don't sweat, shit will be lit my nigga. Musikians unite, feel the tide rise, riding down the south side.
May I make a suggestion?
End this year with a fucking banger, hardpress the release date on the 30th of december, who cares if this only has 3 tracks, 5 tracks, 6 tracks? just fucking deliver us from this Musikiansless hell man, I want my Musikians Boneless man, fuck man, just cook your shit up, fucking midi rage, dark spoopy ambient, metal machine music tributes, industrial bangers, fucking lay it on me, tease me daddy, tease me harder, please.
I am good with this suggestion. I really want to release another album soon. I am going to try and push it to all of the review blogs I can find and see if we can get some outsiders to review us.
What do yo guys think? Can we get this album done before December 30?

I see no harm in actually having it out on the 30th, it gives a bit more time to really apply that extra bit of shine and pull it off.
This also gives some more time for another track that could be made, more tracks is also good for the album :)
We need some of that NW fire on this album
I'm all in for it, make some more music and get those fire tracks on there! I'll start mastering what we have, so it won't bite me in the ass at the end of the year.
So I already have three tracks on this album, but I may have another track to submit. It technically isn't finished (no vocals) but I think it'd be a good addition regardless.
Working on my second track for the album.
Just submitted another track.>>31721>>31724
Awesome, keep the goods coming
Tomorrow is the deadline. Last call for tracks
SUBMITTING ONE SHORTLY
Badass, it's accepted.
*Submissions will no longer be accepted from here on.*
The album will be released shortly after. First I will finish mastering it.
Yeah, not really been my time, nor place so far, While 25 is a big number and stuff, I've never felt drawn to it; Now 26 however,…
I just noticed I had pressed yours as a reply, that wasn't meant to happen. I fucked up.
Any ETA on album release?
I'm trying to get it out between the 20th and 22nd
I have been sick lately and that impeded my ability to master, sorry for the delay
so um what happened to this
Some shit happened that caused the mastering on it to be slowed down.
derrr I'm a day late but doing some finishing touches… HYPE
I'm visiting family right now. This Monday will be the definite day of release, not any later. Sorry for the delay.
Guess who got a migraine yesterday when I started working on the album. :(
