Hi all,

I haven't been around much lately, and haven't had many chances to work my way through the User Showcase.

I've been working on a song lately on which I'd like to get some feedback if anyone has a few minutes and would care to comment.

It's a bit of a sad song about a depressing relationship that so many people find themselves in it seems. Let me have it good or bad if you will.

Thanks in advance.

Hi toucher,

Very impressive. I liked the melody and the story scene you painted. Great vocal that really captured the emotion.

I would've liked to see the lyrics.

My only nit is that the harmonizer is distracting from her voice in spots because it sounds too robotic - especially for an intimate song like this.

Very nice indeed!
I agree with Josie about the harmonizer.

One single harmony might be sweet. Take the vocalizer and cut it down to either a 3rd or a 5th, and see what one lone voice does.

I posted already but it seems to have got lost.

Great singing and a great song! Like it! With my hearing the harmony sounded ok.

nice song and lyrics. as far as production i would bring the drums up in the mix and lower the crash cymbal volume. other then that it sounded pretty good.

Hi Toucher,

Really well written (sad) song! I agree with the comments about the harmonizer. But great job on the song!

Thank you all so much for the input so far, it would appear there is a confirmatin between this and another forum on a couple of changes. I'll work on those when time allows. There are so many knowledgable pros here that a consensus is usually something you have to go with.

I'll repost when I've had some time to process what I need to do and then find time to do it

Thanks again.

Can't wait for the 2012 version.............

Rob
