Of course, I doubt it.

But encouraging nevertheless.

would be nice if people came to senses again ... dynamics is so undervalued nowadays Icon_sad
too bad the record is inexcusably terrible... Neutral


there's something really unwholesome about hearing axl through heavy melodyne.


good news on the masters though! Hahaha

i think you should put something on the SC mastering page explaining your stance and telling people how to make their own shite slammed to fuck master, so that if thats what they want they wont waste your time and complain that your version isnt as good..
I don't mind what I've heard of it. Bought it for my gf as it's our anniversary, she's a massive fan. Did sound lush in the car, just didn't read into it.

Might be a step in the right direction at the very least.

Dodz - as I don't analyze things that much, what are the traits of a Melodyne'd recording?? Just pitch perfect?

well, you can clearly hear it most pop recordings these days.....listen carefully to the transitions between pitches and the lack of irregular vibrato and the like....it sounds 'humanesque' but not human.

for a dude like axl, his voice can't work for me aesthetically without a little stink to it....it basically sounds like the vocal equivalent of how he currently looks, which is suppose makes sense.

Nervous


tbh, there's no way that album could have delivered anyway....too much hype, too long coming, no original members, axl's completely batshit crazy, it sounds like dance music for big sections, completely unmemorable....

i'll just live in an eternal state of 'appetite nostalgia' and carry on... Lol
Not heard it but how could it be any other way...

BTW Autotunitis/melodynitis is SO incredibly prevalent that people literally don't hear it any more. It grates on me no fuckin end.
