Thanks, guys! But this place would be nothing without all of you too. I think we have a nice community going here and hopefully it will continue to grow.

I need to get the newsletter going again, and keep them going on a regular basis. That usually brings more people in... I'm working on it.

2010 should be a good year!!

Scott

Wow that sounds magnanimous, paternal and, well, gracious.

Allow me to introduce myself to you.

I am an amateur songwriter. My name is Kent. I live in Minnesota.

I have written several songs, but do not have a band to perform them, so I have assembled MIDI generated tracks of the various instruments, and assembled them in Sonar (X1).

I have my daughters sing some of them, I paid a professional vocalist to sing a couple, and I even went so far as to pay to have one of them professionally recorded and mixed, which didn't turn out exactly the way I had wanted.

I love my songs, as they are basically from my heart. Other people are quite polarized on them. Some gush over them, some really really vehemently hate them.

A lot of people probably would have just given up. Thrown in the towel, but I haven't.

But that isn't my issue.

I don't really need help with that part. I need help with mixing the tracks. I am studying the topic in depth, between eq, compression, reverb, automation, etc.

But I don't feel like I'm getting any closer to being able to mix them effectively, but I have really learned a lot. I think the problem is, I do not trust that what sounds good to me really is mixed right. I know it's not, though, because I really don't know what I'm doing with it all yet.

I have insufficient funds to pay a pro. That is why I am trying to learn it.

I am studying "Audio Expert" by Winer and "Mixing Audio" by Izhaki. It is really slow going though.

Anyway...

Regardless of if you love my songs or hate them or are somewhere in-between, would you be willing to answer specific questions for me, via email, as I work through these two textbooks? I honestly don't mind if you don't like my songs, the arrangement, instrumentation, lyrics, whatever. I just am trying to find a 'big brother' type who can give me a hand here as I try to finish of these 8-9 songs.

Addressing only that single request, Kent, here's my standard answer.

Ditch the email request. Post your questions here and you'll get plenty of help (mostly) from people that have experience with your issues. If you have a question, you're probably not alone. With email, YOU get ONE answer. With this forum, LOTS of people will get LOTS of answers. That's why the forum is here. For the good of the community. Use it, and we all grow.
