My Demotape Out NOW!!!!
My band, SYM4NY, has finally recorded a demotape... Its our first (and hopefully not our last) demotape and we were hoping this could give our band more exposure...

The demotape is RM5 and is available to everyone on anthroasia... you heard that correctlly... EVERYONE ON ANTHROASIA... that is... once i open an paypal account then it'll be available to everyone outside of malaysia... or you could just enter it in to my Maybank account...

Either way... the demo is what i and my freinds have been working on for 2 years... it is our sweat, blood and tears (ok, maybe not blood)...

If you guys wanna hear some sample of our songs... here are the links... =)

SYM4NY - The Breakup

SYM4NY - The Comfort Song

hope you guys like our songs =D

Wow! Congrates! Keep making nice music!
(Btw, next time please do fade in and out for samples, sudden blast of rock songs past midnight is a bad idea ><)

I guess, I should start forming a band or something.

RE: My Demotape Out NOW!!!!
Interesting.

Being from a vocal background myself, I found myself quite enjoying the melody and the beat. If there is one thing I'm being a little nit-picky about, it could be the vocals erring a bit on the brash in some bits of the sample. For example, at the start of the sample, the words ("if I shattered into pieces") has a choppy feel to it. However, the vocalist can achieve some pretty sweet vocals, especially later on in the sample ("and if I said I never loved you, would you cry into my face"), which I really like.

A mixer could help if you recorded each instrument on its own individual track on the computer, you might be able to adjust the levels independently to achieve a bit more balance between vocals and instrumentation. However, I'm happy with the blend of the various instruments, the tightness of the music... the fact that you've been working at it for two years shows and given the right amount of post-processing, it could easily slip out into the mainstream.


Good work!

Yeah i know... I was actually trying to keep it safe when i sang that song... it was my first and fav song i made... and FYI originally the second line of the chorus was suppose to go higher but after not hitting the right note (and having to repeat over n over) i decided to lower it...

the second song is actually Half English Half Malay... that's what happens when a bunch of guys come together to make a song and couldnt decide which language to go for.... so we did both...

That's quite a nice voice you have there. =)

The alternative to singing it WITH the band is to record the band playing on their own before recording your voice over it. You get tighter control over volume, you can repeat over and over and over again and you could multi-track it all. =D
