Thanks for your comment and insight on 'your deadly silence'. I tend to do my mixing with headphones and should probably get some good monitors to mix with. now you've got me paranoid all my vocals are too up:)
@gerrybhoy Mar 18
Hi TC, thanks for all the listens and the very kind comments, much appreciated, catch up at 50/90 I hope.
@valeriecox Mar 18
Hi T, thanks for commenting on my newest MAWM song. I will defintely try rolling off the bass instead of just the frequency straight cut that I did. What happens is the bass sounds too present in headphones, which is an obvious thing to happen, but I didn't think it would sound like there was no bass at all if listening on a laptop. Listened in my car this morning and there is some bass, but not much. It's frustrating because I've occasionally had this problem before, but then sometimes the mix seems fine using the same setup. Thanks for the helpful tip.

T.C. : )

@ange Mar 7

@johnstaples Mar 5
T.C. thanks for listening to some of my songs tonight and for your thoughtful comments. I appreciate that so much! It means a lot coming from you because I really like and respect your work!!
@klaus Feb 28
How wonderful. Another watchlist add.
I wanted just to say thanks for your kind words. But I ended up listening. I had to stop because of time, but I'll be back.
@johnstaples Feb 28
Just wanted to tell you I really enjoyed listening to your music this month and sharing mine. Take care and keep writing!!!
@dragondreams Feb 26
*Stands up and applauds*
Love it, Mr Elliott. Love it!
@dragondreams Feb 26
Ooh! I like surprises!
The trouble is, I only spotted this when I got into the office. And now I have to wait another seven hours or so before I get chance to take a listen.
I'm sure what you've done will be excellent though.

Here is a link to the first ten seconds of my corpse segment. https://soundcloud.com/complexissimple/fawmonster-corpse-teaser
Have fun! (And by fun I of course mean insanity.)
@johncrossman Feb 25
I was going to say, don't be a stranger, but I think it is me who has been a stranger this fawm. Before it gets any stranger, just popped in to say I'm looking forward to checking out your tunes!
@dragondreams Feb 25
Thanks for the update.
I'm getting quite light-headed and dizzy with excitement and anticipation...
@explodingmary Feb 25
re: nun, you got that right!!!
@spiritdancer Feb 24
Thanks for busting my Zong on Spirit Dance (ZBAD visit)!
@kahlo2013 Feb 23
Hey who's calling me hooky? Seriously, thanks for listening to Just US. Glad you enjoyed it! Liz
@accosmi Feb 22
Gaaah, I've been having trouble with my demo links all month. I'm going back and uploading them to Bandcamp now, so it should be working now!
@spiritdancer Feb 22
Thanks so much for your warm praise for both Fortune and Spirit Dance 2. I appreciate that you took the time to listen and comment!
@mschizzle Feb 19
thanks for your nice comment on Float On!
@johnstaples Feb 17
thanks for listening to I Am Not and for your kind words! I really appreciate it.
@snoozin Feb 16
Thanks for your feedback on 'I Am Not'...I have the demo up now in case you want to have a listen.
@writeandwrong Feb 16
Thank you for your feedback. It probably won't have music to it before the FAWM boards shut down. We're working on a bunch of stuff to get ready for the summer tho. I'm thinking it just might be one that gets worked on within a few months tho. If you want to keep track of what we are doing after FAWM, we just put up a FB page: http://www.facebook.com/TheIanBlackBand

@michiel Feb 13
Thank you for your kind feedback !
@sophielynette Feb 12
Thanks for the comment on Saint Charles. I'm pleased somebody got the MASH reference.
@johnstaples Feb 12
hey thanks for listening to No Second Chances and for your kind words!! I'm gonna get busy and check out more of yours tonight!
And, BTW, I LOVE your profile pic! I kept looking at the small version and couldn't quite figure out what it was. Then I came to your main page and...
@yarsky Feb 12
Hello! Thank you for the heads up and for the kind words. Listening to "Bound to be Trouble..." Keep the witty-tune biz alive!
@barbara Feb 12
Nothing I do with my cellphone earbud mic ever seems to qualify as a hi-fi masterpiece. I don't get it; am I doing something wrong? (Thanks for seeing through the fog!)
@mschizzle Feb 11
wow, thanks for all the lovely comments! always nice to make a new fan
@jdsmith22 Feb 10
Thanks for the kind words!
@mccannrs Feb 10
Thanks for commenting! You did great too!
@downburst Feb 10
It's up! Thanks again.
@downburst Feb 10
Thanks! (As I said in my email.) My email's on my profile (isn't it? I thought it was).
Can't wait to get a listen!
@petemurphy Feb 10
Hiya TC! Thanks for the comment. Yeah, the string sound thing I use is a program called EWQL symphonic gold. I don't really know what I'm doing with it so I just stick on a cello sound and layer melodies up. I tend to break out that program every time I record anything that comes near to 'ballad territory'. I know that it has been used on a few albums that I like and sounds really good on those, but I'm not technical minded enough to add the right effects/eq to take away from sounding fake. Wish I could get a string package that has some close mic'ed options. All the ones I've seen cost too many $$$
Hope all is good. Enjoying your work so far... I'll check out more soon.
@barbara Feb 8
Boy, you've been busy! I've got a lot of catching up on listening to do. Just got full time work, so it's hard to get it all in! Thank you for giving some fawm-love to my dark little story. If it didn't just introduce itself, I wouldn't know where to begin to try to create one. Strange how skirmishes do that, take you in a direction you wouldn't consciously plan. I hope I can fit in a few more!
@kenficara Feb 8
Thanks for your comment on "Countdown." The last third of the track is both vocal and harmonica, going through a long and heavily modulated analog delay. It's an Moog 104M, on its longest setting, with the LFO set to sample&hold at a fairly slow rate, so the delay time is jumping around.
@jdsmith22 Feb 8
Thanks, I'm glad you liked it!
@brzan Feb 6
I thought that guitar sounded like DD's! We've shared a folder before for collabs, so that's probably what happened. I will let DD know! Thanks!
@brzan Feb 6
Hi TC! Came back from vacation and found some "tcjam" files in my drop box. You're the only "TC" I can think of, so I'm wondering if you're the kind person I should be thanking?
@johncrossman Feb 5
Light it up!
I'm just saying...
@colourcodedchaos Feb 4
Sorry! I thought I'd already replied to you. I'm really excited to see what you're going to do with Bound, and I can't wait to see - well, hear - the finished product! =]
@adamhill Feb 4
Thanks TC! I'm here, off to a slow start, but I'll be rockin' all month long, don't you worry
@andygetch Feb 3
Hi TC, looking forward to your songs!
@seanbrown Feb 3
Dearest PJ, I hope to have now met your expectations. I'm just leaving the house, but I'll be sure to check out your music you've written this year.
@natchdan Feb 3
Thanks TC! I'm concentrating more on things like hat patterns and things this year, it's amazing what a difference it makes.
@dragondreams Feb 3
And yes. That's the new "DD VIP" amp I'm using with Frankie.
Wow! You done got four songs for me to listen to!
@downburst Feb 2
Thanks for the comment. And wow, look at all those songs. You're on track for 56!

Hi! Of course I'm up for a collab this year. Truth be told, I wasn't expecting to survive into this year, so I guess that means happy songs now! =]

@gerrybhoy Feb 1
Hi TC let the Smithing begin.
@johncrossman Jan 31
Wait a minute, am I expected to rock this joint?!?!? I thought that was your job. Get a job, hippie! Er... yeah, I'm simply ecstatic to be back here with you and the gang. In that order.
