Here`s my first effort with GarageBand 2 and the fantastic Jam Pack 2. I had lots of fun
with the Electroclash drum kit, new bass
guitars and some of the synthesizers.
All resulting in unashamedly melodramatically melancholy bedroom electro-pop.
The limitations of my Powerbook inbuilt mic and of my vocal chords leave me a bit more work to do on this - so any advice on how to improve that, and other aspects of the mixing is welcome. In particular, I don`t have monitors - just my JBL Creature Speakers, so I`m interested to hear how
this sounds on other sized speakers.
Thanks for listening.

Pretty cool song.
Can't help you with any mixing... I have my own
limitations there, however, as fas as your vocals go this
wasn't bad. My advice is to keep at it. Practice will help...
plus there are many people out there making money with
worse voices (I'm not implying anything, lol) so sometimes
it's just a matter of style over skill. Define your own style
and go for it.

Pretty cool song.
Thanks - I`m was trying to make the vocals sound fragile - but i think they
might be a bit too fragile in places!

shining through
If I understand the concept, it's trying to make romance work on the second time around, but I had a hard time decoding the lyrics. It would help if you'd post them. The fun you are having with the new tools shines through.

80's flashback
The music bed and vocals remind me of an 80's dance
tune. Please take that as a compliment!! This has a sound
of its own as well. I think your vocals sound good. I would
like to see the words as I'm listening. Makes it easier to
understand the lyrics. As far as pinhole mic recording...I
have similar problems. I just try to keep the mic volume
about halfway up, and sing quiet vocals about a foot away,
and louder vocals about 2 feet away. Technical, eh? Fun
