Re: A Concept Album?

Will someone please explain to me in layman’s terms what a concept album is? I love music! I don’t know what a concept album is and why it’s significant. I need some education here... :shrug :mope Just a rock album with some central theme... or concept, if you will. The Last Hero was a borderline c...

Re: The Fitness Thread

Did a 5-mile run today. Finished in 35:33.38. That's the fastest I know I've gone when timing myself on it, but I'm betting I can break 35 minutes by the end of the month.

Re: The Fitness Thread

I just got back into running again. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, but it was just longer jogging bouts (3-5 miles at a time, pacing myself relatively leisurely). My only claim to fame during this time was breaking 20 minutes in a 5K run (19:58.22, to be exact). Now I'm picking it up a...

Re: Underrated Alter Bridge Appreciation Thread

One Day Remains is a huge favorite of mine, and it’s honestly pretty unique compared to everything else. The pure energy from the first note to the very end is amazing. Some others I think are under appreciated are Buried Alive, All Ends Well, and My Champion. I was actually down on MC when it was ...

Re: The Chinese Democracy way of album making! Tinker until it's overproduced!

Yeah project files sorry! I do have the data files, but you're probably right that the computer can't find them, even though they're all in a folder with the project file. =P Do you know of any way to fix that by chance? I haven't really looked into it truthfully, and I've saved all of the songs as...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Oh, so these are project files and not audio files? It might be because the .aup file is just for the project itself, but there is a bunch of data that goes into folders for every project as well which saves the audio bits. Your new computer probably can't locate those files, or they might not be on...

Re: All this technical talk going way over my head.

A note about Audacity for those using a Mac on the latest Mac software, all of the Audacity files that I had transferred from my old computer that were made in older versions of the app no longer have any audio on them. All of the tracks are still there, but they don't play anything. I don't know i...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Hey, so my early impressions are that this is strong. Definitely gives separation between voice and instrument, removes the muddy midtones and lowers that kick-drum quite a bit (especially in the verses of Forever Falling, which some people in the loudness war struggle will claim this has made it lo...

Re: Walk The Sky Production Quality.

Update, I've made a better version for my ears, erased the muddy bass kick and made it more impactful and tight. Opened up the upper range a bit. Can hear the music much better. I know the album is now 6-7 months old, and maybe no one cares, but this mix kills my original mix, and embarrasses the o...

Re: Violinists deserve stalkers, too

Hey gbruin, I was searching for an old post of mine, and ran across these two that you made. Yes, they are very old, and possibly irrelevant now haha. Hmm. Was that really a good idea, Muffin? :shifty LOL she could always use another fan. Anyway, I'm doing a little mini-project of taking the BD audi...

Re: Battle Of The Track Numbers: Track 07

Hey jailman, I don't mean to hijack this other thread, but since the voting here is over I think it's fine to say that if you want to still put some numbers in, I'm doing album rankings on a Google spreadsheet if you'd like to enter stuff. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OBjFsEYA1UDj4yVezWcX...

Re: Alter Bridge 'Walk the Sky' spring US tour 2020

There is someone there. Right side, behind the two big lights. He's not "behind the stage," but he's blocked a bit from view. At the 1:20 mark of my video, look at Flip. To his left is a tech, and to the tech's left is the keyboard player. LOL I totally wasn't paying attention. Honestly, ...

Re: Alter Bridge 'Walk the Sky' spring US tour 2020

Seeing your video on Godspeed, I can't see anyone playing the synth. Is it just a backing track? Is someone else out there that isn't visible on the video?

All right. Here we go again. At the Regency Ballroom. Once again, first in line that’s non VIP and not taking guitar clinic. Don’t see myself getting rail, but maybe I’ll get lucky like I did at the Raleigh show. Ok I think my ears could be playing tricks but I think they are rehearsing Indoctrinat...
