I have a CD submitted to another site.  Looking for other suggestions (alt rock/progressive sites).

I like his writing style, said a lot with minimal words.  There's a few errors, like sOng instead of sIng and Iommi's name misspelled (which I contacted him about).

 

More importantly he seems to 'get' the musical aspect of what I try to accomplish.

It is!  And I made the most of it on this prog site where they allow a lot of flexibility on the band page design:

Nice work again, Kevin. Excellent moody guitarscapes and the bits of electronica that sneak in here and there are a nice touch. Really like some of your guitar sounds - do you use sims or mic up amps?

 

Btw, apologies for taking so long to check this out. I had meant to but got swamped in work and then I was gone on vacation.

Every guitar tone was through Amplitube.  I haven't owned a guitar amp in 5+ years.  :P

 

Thanks Dave!

For anyone who likes stoopid's guitars/amps sound and if your system can run it, Amplitude 3 is half off for $100 right now at B&H.

Here's the caveat. That price is for download only. Sweetwater also has it for download for the same price. I don't know if you get less stuff with the download than you do with the cd. That's a big difference in price,

I get all my stuff from Sweetwater.  The downloads are identical packages unless otherwise noted.

^ I might pull the trigger on it even though I won't be using it until I get a new DAW setup. My current stuff is old and weak. This could be cool as there's just no way I can get my amps or even my effects processors to sound like these simulations. I tend to go with Sweetwater too. They've got a cool staff. 

 

Btw, I'm not going to be just working on songs. I'm also heavily into animation right now and animation needs soundtracks.

stoopid and I are both big fans of Amplitube...while emulation can never match the real thing, it can get "close enough for government work" at a fraction of the cost.

Dude, Amplitude is great but I'm kind of dying after hearing the below demo of Native Instumrents' Guitar Rig 5 Pro. It's available at NI's website for $199. Sweetwater only sells it as part of a larger production package called Komplete 9 for $399 which is kind of too of rich for my blood right now. Still, for $99, Amplitude is a complete steal. Sweetwater says that price is good throughout August.

It's so close I don't miss all that bulky, expensive equipment a single bit.

 

I started with Guitar Rig 3, I may even still have it installed.  I don't recall why I started using Amplitube instead, but I typically stick with stuff for a long time before switching so Amplitube must have exceeded Guitar Rig in some capacity.  Maybe the newer product is better/comparable.

To cross promote my fledgling production company and new original music I created an audio calibration disc.  It includes many of the commonly needed test tones as well as some sweeps.  I made the sweeps available for free on bandcamp and the test tones as a digital download and/or CD through Kunaki.  I included two original instrumentals as is common on similar test audio discs (had I found mine I wouldn't have thought to create this!   :( ).
 
 
Recently I needed to calibrate a new subwoofer and pair of tweeters in my car.  I had a hard time finding all of this wrapped into a single package and misplaced my discs purchased many years ago, so once I was done creating the tones I needed it occurred to me that maybe others would find this equally useful.

Out of the blue one of the few sites I submitted to wrote a favorable review of Ordinary...

 

http://www.dprp.net/reviews/201519.php

 

 

Additionally, I've sold two of my audio calibration discs in the past 2 weeks (to random Bandcamp members).  Copy of Ordinary through bandcamp as well [might be just a coincidence].  Maybe there's slowly something happening here.  Trying hard for the next release (May-June 2015) to hit it out of the park, although it won't be very prog or even alternative.  Those tracks are still being written and explored, just for a future release (2016).
