Well folks Version 5 is now on the OP, Features a section where it goes briefly acapella then as soon as Bruno says UGH the beat slowly fades back in, Timing in the first verse should be on time I did three different mixdowns to get it right picked the third one obviously because it was on beat, It's ok Satis5d this one was tougher in terms of structure cause this particular AWB Song didn't really have a vocalist, I never have done a original song vs a instrumental probably never will do it again maybe never say never I imagine, So comment and critique once you get the chance!

Dude, you are at like 23.83 Karats with this one right now! The structure is solid. There are still a few individual phrases that need a nudge to the left or right. When I have a few minutes I will point them out a bit more specifically. In the mean time you should give it a few more listens and see if you can hear what I'm talking about. (I don't think any of them were in the second verse...)

And the final bridge sounds much better...but something still isn't quite landing just right. And the few seconds after that sound a little odd. I will also take a crack at that last section myself and post a clip once I dust off the old DAW!

The actual ending sounds great, though. Very close to nailing this one!

The seventh and last one is here, I have made some changes with the timing of the first verse and bridge as in V6 it was still a little off, Plus I added a little bit of extra talkbox in the middle section plus made the BG Vocals come in a little before that, Comment and Critique once you get the chance! Thanks to all who have taken the time out of their busy schedules to provide Feedback!

I came in here at V7, listening to that and none of the others, and it sounds very good. Everything's set up well, audio balanced well, and I could only find one nitpick. At 2:17 "ranger" is a bit off in timing.

Fix that one minor issue and it'd be 100%.

That section has now been fixed if it isn't then I can edit it out but I looked at the section and the mental was falling off the beat which caused the vocal to be momentarily off, Comment and critique once you get the chance!

Yep, version 7.5 completely fixed it.

I had told the team that I wanted to hand in my mod badge due to not being around enough to do the duties, but I'd be happy to recommend this here right now. Bravo!

I didn't listen to any of the previous versions, to be honest, as I am not familiar with any of the sources and this is not really the style of music I enjoy or can judge.
There's others on here that can judge this style, but what I listened to in the latest version,
it sounds technically absolutely nice to my ears and I would just give this a second RECOMMEND, so if any of the other "judges" is unsure about certain parts or anything, please frontpage this for me, as I am really not the right person to FP this style of music.

It's a great mix, but there are still some timing issues to iron out. :1shocked:

0:23 "Put your.." is late
0:29 "What you tryin' to do" is late
0:32 "24 carat magic in the air" is late
(but those background vocals at 0:38 are spot-on! :1smiley: )
0:40 "look out.." is late
Most of 0:42-0:53 are late
But curiously, you're ahead at 0:59.

Those are by far the worst spots. There are some more between 2:00 and 2:30 but let's deal with these first. You're VERY close to having a hit on your hands. :1grin:
