Description
Hello everyone. Here is my first post.

This song, "Otomatik" is an old one... I've recorded this on my PC-Cubase days maybe in 2005 or so...
Last month I found the cubase files of the song and exported each track to aiff and finished it on GarageBand.
Drums were made in those days with Acid Loops.
I only added solo guitars, mid section basses and guitars...
I have a bad habit: I can't pass onto a creating a new song until I'm finished with the current one.

Some things I don't like are: verse sections are in 3 measures and very poorly mixed.
Comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

Hope you like it.

MK.

Nice
I dig the transparent feel in this mix, clear and easy to feel all the players. (Altho the bass could have been a tad louder in my speakers.) When the lead plays over the rhythm, the energy kicks up a notch, nicely. I like the fusion funk feel. Laid back yet groovin' and exciting. Welcome!

Great funky fun
That is some impressive guitar playing... nice bass work too, although as Tobin said, maybe bring it up a little. How fun to find an old song and clean it up... and this one cleaned up really nicely. It has a lot of energy. Welcome to MJ!
ttfn,

So glad you liked it. Agree with the bass level comment. BTW, how is the song updating process? What do I have to do when I got a new mix on this song?
I have another long forgotten song which I recently found on my very old hd. I will update it on GarageBand and ask for your contributions asap.

So happy to hear you liked the guitar tones. BTW, octave playing rhythm guitars are made with POD2.O, leads are Amplitube3. Lead guitars were recorded last week, rhythm guitars were recorded somewhere between 2004-2005 :)

Hey Murat
Big welcome to the world of Macjams. Great first post, love your guitar and bass here, like most people I think the bass could be a little more prominent (Red Hot Chili type of deal) Liked a lot well done

Groovy bass. Echoes of The Crusaders and the Larry Carlton days. But that's only a comparison... Thinking that this is YOUR sound.

Dude,I don't see how you can use the phrase"poorly mixed" in the description.I'm listening with head-phones and it sounds great.

You sure can play that guitar(those guitars),,I love the tone.It sounds like you have the gain dialed up almost to the point of breaking but not quite..Nice warm sound....

This totally rocks!

I think I got confused with the terms while thinking in Turkish and writing in English :) I meant to say the mastering is poor. Thanks for the comment. And you are right about the lead guitar. The gain was almost there and I wish I had 11th level :) But I liked the way how it got to the breaking point. Sounded nice to me.
