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
Total tracks: 3
Total length: 10m 11s
>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.
