    Hey, thanks. It was my pleasure to listen. I'm defo up for a collab next time. Let's do it

  • @tcelliott  Mar 8

    You did answer your own question. Some of the reviewers find instrumentals to be a negative with the reasoning that no-one can know if it was really made to the prompt. That being said, I think it might be worth trying out to see what kind of response you get. It's a different beast and it might not be your cup of tea, but the community, small though it is, can be pretty cool when the chips are down.

  • @elliottlawrence Mar 7

    Thanks for the nice comments on my songs! I see you surpassed the finish line this year so great work on that. Definitely need to check out some of your stuff now. 😁

  • @cts  Mar 6

    Hey man - not sure if you're on the boards anymore, but are you near the DC area? Reason I'm asking is that Little Dragon, yes LITTLE DRAGON is going to be at the 930 club next month. I really want to see them. I was wondering if you'd be interested in checking them out.

  • @cleanshoes Mar 6

    Wow, thank you so very much for the listen and comment on Ghost! I really appreciate it!

  • @valeriecox  Mar 3

    Hey Hey Splitty! Mr. Booms. Sir. Thanks for the comments. πŸ˜€

  • @sbs2018 Mar 2

    Thanks for enjoying β€œLo-Fi Hi-Tech.” Nice to know!

  • @coolparadiso  Mar 1

    thx for your comments see you around the traps. ps I did one more electronic one. i wanna do

  • @thealphabettisystem  Mar 1

    Thanks for the comment on Measured Image. It is much appreciated.

    Korg Gadget is good even though I have only scratched the surface. If you want to try it out there is a free limited LE version, or there used to be. I tried before I buyed

  • @sci Feb 28

    RE: "Should I be afraid that this is NOT incoherent for me?" on "cow brell":
    probably not! i think it's a fun journey, but my inner artist is always going to be like "it could b more" lol
    but yeah, thanks!

  • @ustaknow Feb 26

    So, I read somewhere you don't like the one voice one guitar thing... wow, you're brake-ing my heart man! πŸ˜€ hahhh!

    Anyway, -- can't listen to all your, anyones stuff, -- I know they're all brilliant, at this point; you don't need another "sounds good like it" from me.

    And, this being the end here more or less, CU@5090 I guess!

    Keep synth funking along!

  • @scubed  Feb 23

    Thank you so much for your very generous comment on β€œWaiting for the Supernova”!

  • @hoppiern  Feb 23

    Thanks for your kind comments on Procrastination Station! I really appreciated them!!

  • @pokerowan  Feb 22

    Thanks for your comment on 'I'm Sure Of This'! 'Ent' is regional phonetic spelling of the way my dialect says 'ain't' hahaha πŸ˜‰

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 22

    Thank you also for your kind comment on my cold piece πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 22

    Thank you for your comment and support on I'll be the one. It was wonderful to collaborate with Amanda. A little correction: Amanda created lyrics. I only composed music πŸ˜€

  • @judypie  Feb 21

    Woah, have an eyewilleatu badge! I know ur comment wasn’t actually on an eyewilleatu song but it’s all i have to give out as a prize! Dirty projectors made pretty much my fave album of all time (dirty projectors) so for them to flash into your mind for eeeeven a second makes me V happy 😁

  • @ustaknow Feb 21

    Interesting, "sonic hedge hog", -- I looked up a/the preview. Hansom fellow, we look a little alike, well, I'm a little blue sometimes, anyway πŸ˜‰ ... (what's your super power? πŸ˜€ )

  • @fjorescent Feb 21

    Oh! This makes a lot more sense, thanks for the tip haha. While I'm here, I'm gonna check out some more of your stuff! 😁

  • @bandybum Feb 20

    Also, which synths are using?

  • @bandybum Feb 20

    Fantastic. Yes please email me whatever you've got so far πŸ˜€

  • @bandybum Feb 19

    Yep, sounds good πŸ˜€
    Also found the midi files for this track conveniently ready-made...

  • @mlm Feb 18

    Hi! Thank you so much for your feedback on my track!

  • @bandybum Feb 18

    Great that you're already familiar with Take on me
    Found this which is enormously helpful for the chords and midi patterns πŸ˜€
    How about you try reproducing the sounds of that track and I'll do the same for the other? Or vice versa if you prefer working on an unfamiliar song.
    I'm happy to work on our song arrangement and lyric etc.
    Never done this before, exciting! 😁

  • @bandybum Feb 17

    If it doesn't feel like your thing or just feels like too much pressure please feel free to say so. It's only for fun after all 🌞

  • @bandybum Feb 17

    Great! Glad it appeals to you.
    As you say I'm very happy to undertake the role of lyricist and singer.
    My plan is to analyse and mimic sound and song structure of two songs initially, A-ha's two biggest hits Take on me & the sun always shines on TV.
    If you can help cherry-pick and emulate some of their elements that would be fantastic ✨

  • @sunnymae  Feb 17

    Hey Splitty! I'm so glad you enjoyed Constant Craving.
    I pretty much laughed all the way through writing it and I've been cracking up listening to all the Skirmish food songs tonight. Great job everyone!!

  • @bandybum Feb 17

    Okay here's a challenge for you πŸ˜€
    How about we create an 80s track by throwing elements from classics into a melting pot and mix to taste?
    A pinch of Aha, a snippet of Frankie goes to Hollywood, etc.

  • @cts  Feb 16

    He and I go through this every year. We sit down and map out ideas. We have this long drawn out discussion about how he needs to be participating in FAWM. I'll do a few tracks with him so that there's some familiarity with his presence. He's amped up and then he kinda bails. Oddly enough we've started some great stuff, but he either doesn't have the interest or he's into his lady friend and producing her stuff. It's all good. I'll probably work on the one track we're close to finishing.

  • @cts  Feb 16

    Congrats on the win, my dude! I'm just about finished with my Collab commitments. Working on a few right now. Feel free to send over what you would like for me to work on and I'll get it done!

  • @bandybum Feb 16

    Really like your work. Maybe, at some point, a collab may be fun ?

  • @kable  Feb 16

    Man your comments always make my day. Thanks so very much. πŸ˜€

  • @coolparadiso  Feb 16

    it wouldn't help if I told you unless you speak Khmer. fortunately I do. the best one will be up maybe tomorrow.

  • @unkept Feb 15

    Feel free! Let me know if you need a file!

    It was my pressing the record button I think. This Zoom microphone is set to pre-record five seconds, so it captured the button press haha

  • @sbs2018 Feb 15

    Thanks so much for your comments on β€œDancing to a Different Drummer.” These days my ears mostly do the dancing.

  • @thealphabettisystem  Feb 14

    Thanks for the comment on Let Me Know, much appreciated.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 11

    Thanks for your comment! I am truly hoping Nick will put it to music!

  • @ustaknow Feb 11

    Thanks for saying so. I guess also, I am very fortunate you like that kind of music too! hahhh πŸ˜€

    Do you know who the australian shed man is this year? (You're familiar with that and Nick Cage πŸ˜‰ showing up, hahhh! yeah, right!) So, I saw folks doing "collabs" with him like the Shed thing last year, and well, that's my kind of humour too! So I added him to the 12 Bar Blues thing.

    You should do one and mark him as collaborator πŸ˜€ see what happens. But poke the profile, -- gotta do your part πŸ˜‰ hahhh!

    I asked him for a selfie with FAWM2020 in front of his arm tats for "proof", -- none yet πŸ˜€

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 11

    Thanks so much for your comment on Ain't Gonna. It was very kind of you! *blush*

  • @davidtaro  Feb 10

    Thanks for the comments on Raincoat. When you put it that way, old school sitcom theme tunes were pretty catchy and I shall now readily embrace this! Really loving your stuff too πŸ‘

  • @engebretsen  Feb 9

    OK. Thx for those kind words on "Weirdo". I change the text a little. You`re words was a really uplifting thing, because I do struggle these days. But that`s the way it should be! Thx again.

  • @theresaj  Feb 7

    Thank you for your very kind comments. You are really encouraging!

  • @barbara  Feb 6

    I really didn’t hear any of those notes as mistakes myself, just an evolving free form discovery that you seemed to keep salvaging with minor course corrections. I enjoyed the ride. I even liked the banging, lol! I know that frustration too. Banging is the next right move sometimes. Just wanted you to know I was loving your style.

  • @quork  Feb 6

    Hey man, heard you on the radio. Very cool.

  • @barbara  Feb 4

    I have a warm belly full of comment love now. Thank you very much for sharing your impressions and the memory that rises up to meet my music. I loved that!

  • @atam94 Feb 4

    hey, thanks so much for checking out my second song! I truly appreciate your detailed comments.
    And regarding the vocal synth... I have heard of AlterEgo before. That's cool! I purchased some vocaloids a few years back, which is why I was curious.

  • @seemanski  Feb 3

    The machinarium soundtrack is one of my favourite albums. The game is great and the soundtrack puts it in a league of its own.

  • @plog  Feb 3

    Enjoyed your thoughtful comment! Thanks!

  • @brandondale72  Feb 3

    Yo, thanks for the incredibly kind words on my song "Life's a Mess". Really appreciate the visit. πŸ˜€

  • @frozenlonesome Feb 3

    Thanks a lot for you considered comments on Space Patrol Super Cereal. I appreciate your kind words and am glad you enjoyed the track.

  • @kable  Feb 3

    @splittybooms really glad you enjoyed it! It's hard to make this style because of the complexity of the sequencing, but it also is very rewarding, like solving a difficult puzzle.

  • @engebretsen  Feb 3

    WOW! What an amazing review you give me on "Guilty pleasure" Thanks a lot!

  • @seemanski  Feb 2

    I basically read and tried to understand (failing miserable of course) this book https://www.amazon.com/Mixing-Secrets.... It also comes with a video series which is really interesting (also free πŸ˜‰)


  • @cts  Feb 2

    Thanks, man. It really has been tough, but we're all working through it. I hope to get it together before the weekend's over.

  • @evinwolverton Feb 2

    β™₯︎ I believe in you β™₯︎

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 1

    Thanks so much for your comment on Dreamcycle. Looking forward to hearing your work, too, this year!

  • @seemanski  Feb 1

    Thank you so much for your feedback. It was constructive and very useful. I really appreciate how you took the time to compare and break it down to my chosen mix reference. I'm new to this mix referencing and not quite sure what to look out for, I just kind did a brief side by side to see if it was anyway near the ball park. I wasn't sure I picked the right track, but I guess you have to keep trying and as time goes on you start to recognise what to look out for.

    Anyway, enough rambling. Thanks again, that was just the kind of constructive criticism I was after πŸ˜€

  • @unpronounceable Feb 1

    <3 Your comments tho! Nice to meet you.

  • @vrnsmth  Feb 1

    Also! The original lyrics included a sound out of doc saying β€œMARTY!” But didn’t out of dmca danger haha

  • @vrnsmth  Feb 1

    Thanks for checking out β€œTime Alone”

    I appreciate the comments greatly!!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 1

    Hi hi! I would love a hook up! It has become a tradition that I love! Love your style!

  • @tjfafterdark Feb 1

    What it do, my dude. I remember you from this summer.

  • @pearlmanhattan  Feb 1

    Hey there!! Yeah, me, aaron, YLM, ohgosh, curtiss king and a few other very talented professionals making sound packs...happy FAWM!!

  • @saumera Jan 30

    Nah man, not at all! I'm all for it

  • @quork  Jan 28

    Hey, hope you have a great FAWM 2020!

  • @ustaknow Jan 19

    You too!, all the best this year πŸ˜€

  • @sailingmagpie  Jan 17

    Looking forward to hearing more of your stuff this year. Still the best profile pic on the site!

  • @cts  Jan 15

    In my notes I've got a reminder to try a Little Dragon inspired tune. No clue as to what that would sound like,but I just want to make sure I don't forget to do it!

  • @cts  Jan 15

    Alright, partner - get ready for another round of sonic goodness!

  • @coolparadiso  Jan 15

    i gonna get a few electros out there! hope to see you around!

  • @metalfoot  Jan 15
