At Audiotuts+ we irregularly put up a reader track for workshopping and critique (find out how to submit a track). This is how it works: you upload your song, and every week or so we'll publish one here and step away from the podium. The floor is yours to talk about the track and how the artist can fix problems in and improve upon the mix and the song.
Thanks for your submissions everyone - and keep them coming. We have enough to publish two or three a week at the moment. Let me know if it gets too much.
This track has been submitted for your friendly, constructive criticism. They have put their track (and their heart and soul) in your hands to learn and get useful feedback.
- Do you enjoy the song or track itself? Does it have potential?
- Can the arrangement be improved?
- How did you find the mix? What would you do differently?
- What do you enjoy about the rhythm track? What can be done to improve it?
- Is the choice of instruments relevant and effective for the style/song?
- Are the lyrics (if any) effective? Does the style, arrangement and genre of the song suit them?
- Can you suggest any specific techniques that might improve the track?
- Do you have any other constructive feedback?
Monster Forestry by Light Rain Ends
Description of the track:
Not sure what to say about the song itself, other than that it's about reflecting on people that influenced you in your 'formative years' (heartbreaking first girlfriend, cold alcoholic parent, or what-have-you).
I 'finished' this version a week or two ago, but I'm thinking about starting again from scratch on this song. So, I'm really interested in getting some arrangement/production advice: tempo, instrumentation, etc. Are there different directions you could see this going in?
