With my previous setup I used the Behringer Truth 2031As but the bass was too heavy for the small room I record in so I had to mix in a larger room. Now I use Tannoy 6A in my small room and am very happy with them for the price. I have found that I can get the detail in the mix to 80% on my AKG 240Mk2 phones first.
I think Titan is referring to the other meaning of the title which you could probably find on google. I hate to say it, but I had the same thought when I first read this. English slang can be tricky!
After for me. I mix and master the main file, then bounce it to WAV for submission. I then start a new project and import that WAV and add another track for the AJ watermark. As I normally master to -0.3dB to -0.5dB, I place a brick wall limiter over the new master to prevent any clipping.
I do it this way for two reasons
1.Instead of the 10 sec loop, I use multiple instances of the single watermark and space them out from about 8 to 15 sec to limit rhythm clashes with the music and better utilize any quiet passages. But I make sure I don’t leave a complete “stand alone” motif bare (to avoid this part being ripped and looped).
2. I can vary the volume of each watermark instance to suit the loudness profile of the music.
I then save this with the same same as the mastered project with AJWM on the end to avoid confusion when handling the files later.
Although this may seem to be slightly outside of the AJ guidelines, I have never had a submission rejected for preview reasons.
As a sidenote, I used to have the watermark at the minimum level possible but I now make it louder due to the number of AJ tracks used on Youtube with the watermark intact.
English is my first language and I don’t see any pronunciation problems at all in these lyrics, especially in the context of a popular song. So I don’t think you need another singer.
However, some of the lyrics don’t read well in English and this may be the reason for rejection. For example “We try to catch a speed of life” and “But life for you is only one” (although I understand the meaning). You may like to check the reviewer’s comments again as I think the song may only need certain lyrics to be re-phrased.
I hope this helps
I have two.
The first has a similar style but doesn’t build as dramatically. The second is darker and shorter but builds to a crescendo before a reflective coda.
I hope this may be of some use to you.http://audiojungle.net/item/a-life-remembered/3947254 http://audiojungle.net/item/majestic-landscapes/5682475
The reviewer is not certain whether to accept it or reject it so has referred it to a second reviewer for further review. This could be for a number of reasons, normally not including quality. Maybe it’s a little different and may not sell here. I’ve only ever had one and it was accepted by the second reviewer.
I hope you are accepted. Best wishes.
