WELL!!! Just about right down to the wire here LOL. ... My first ever submission to any sort of music contest. This was fun, altho I certainly don't care for VOPM all that much. It's okay, but I doubt I'll ever use it again LOL.
Much of this month was spent learning both LMMS and Reaper, as well as experimenting with various effects plugins, watching tutorials about mixing and mastering, and doing mixing. I probably did more than 10 version of the mix, but I think I finally got it. At least, I think it sounds decent enough. Certainly fuller and more open than what came directly out of LMMS. ... Mixing and mastering is something I've never really bothered with before in my tracks, but it's certainly something I'll do from now on.
I started out with the desire to do a electro-dub track, but it ended up kinda a electro-raga-dub somehow.
Anyhow, here it is. I couldn't come up with a better track title than Fuzzadub LOL ... I hope y'all like it.https://soundcloud.com/vox_saltator/fuzzadub
