I play drums for a local band and we recorded our first song. One of my friends as TONS of old sound crap in his basement. We used and old reel-to-reel he bought at a yard sale. Any coments would be great.
sounds pretty good! I think you are good w/o vocals if that's your goal....lots of bands are totally instrumental. Keep in mind live shows: with no vocalist, you have to have AWESOME stage presence, or be TOTALLY mind blowing for people to love you.
and, I think your keys are off somehow. He changes notes at the right time, but the "modulation" (for lack of a better term) in some places is out of time with the song, and overall it'd be better without themin there at all, right now. If you get it modulating with the beat and work a little on the mix (keys kinda came it suddenly and loudly) it would work just fine though.
thats my friends band, they have a another local band that recorded them for free. they have a little shack for recording then i belive they mixed it with cool edit pro. the bass drum is too loud on those but its a good quailty.
