@Mo I agree with @Mora Amaro La Loba that the words are quite difficult to understand. That is not only for the singing itself, but they dissolve in the strings too much. Possibly you could find a way to lift them from the instrumental part? The instrumental part itself sounds good to me.

Really like this one @Mo

The strings with your voice have a very dramatic distinct sound.

The only bit I'm not sure about is the drums at around 2.02 - I like the idea but they sound very much like a drum machine - or is that the intention?

Some songs sound good with drum machines - i.e. Radiohead have some songs that seem to have a drum machine that works for me because it isn't trying to sound like a drummer (if that makes sense)

But that's a small picky point.

Overall - a really strong song.

cheers

Your vocal style is SO unique @Mo . You are using your voice so much as an instrument that even though the lyrics do get a little lost, the feeling is still very strong. Toward the ending......which is very cool.....you bring the lyrics up nicely. On a second listen it seems like you are bringing the entire song up toward the end....that is actually a pretty cool thing.

I actually like the dynamic of that drum machine when it comes in. You could soften it a little with some high frequency filtering.

Little sister

Hey little sister,
HEy little maid.
Hey little sister, don't be afraid

You, who made them hear,
 was hidden for thousands years,
 'bout female secrets those to fear.

I wanna hold your cold pale hand.
You  knew there is no final end
just strength to understand.

Hey little sister,
HEY little maid.
Hey little sister, don't be afraid

I wanna have you won't ignore
we are three  and there are more.
Too flat to drown' em is the shore.

So much beauty left while others quits
when were glancing through the lids
and saw mothers sometimes eat their kids.


Hey little sister,
HEY little maid.
Hey little sister, don't be afraid

Hey little sister,
HEY little maid.
Hey little sister, don't be afraid

@Pleudoniem Thank you , i will consider this effekt for the future, :-)
but indeed with this song here and with a view afterwards that  it was clicked at SC more than 600 timers caused by the SC dynamics  what I didn't expected, i'm rather totally ok  with the  voice  and words assimilating strings . I think not really ordinary everybody need to understand them. I saw by the new followers that message was received by the right persons also without clear talking words.  But of course for sure I get your point and as said I will pay attention to it !! ::thumb:: ::thumb::  I still try to improve my pronounciation but somtimes i just forget about while I singing.... thants bothers me

Thank you @Jurgen , I really like it if you like it!
Because i thought to me, that this i consider a dramatic topic I choosed the orchestra. Yes it sounds overdrawed and pathetic a bit but yes, that was the pic to paint.
I rather  can imagine a lot of other  instrument play and scenario;  what in real would so much better.....but as mentioend I'm bound a bit to the GB instruments. Thats the reason i end up often in this staccatto wise sound...... its because .... i'm just able to play the chord progression then.....
Yes the drum machine was there and choosed intentianally.

Thank you my friend @Leonard Scaper ,
 as someone who don't play an distinct  instrument very well or good enough to compainging  myself Im totally happy to have just this.
 Yes, I see the drum mashine went louder  in the compressed file as it in the origin seemes.

I would like it very much to know how i could  soften the frequenz here and there as i could need it vor some voice peaks too. But i don't have a glue how to do, I think I will start a topic maybe in the kitchen cafee or in  the gear section.  Thank you for always take your time for us!  ::thumb::

@Mo There are quite a great number of free VSTs on the Internet. I don't work with GB, but I am almost certain it allows you to implement 3rd party VSTs. I know that some musicuians on the forum make use of them, and to great effect. Possibly you might want to look around and see if there's anything that might add to your palette. I am not sure if you might be interested, but look here:

https://www.powerdrumkit.com/download76187.php
https://rekkerd.org/category/downloads/plugins/
https://bedroomproducersblog.com/?s=Top+40+Freeware+VST+Plugins+Of+2018

...in case you didn't know them ;)

And for free filters, look here:

https://www.meldaproduction.com/effects/free

I think Melda produces top notch material, and some if it is free. You might want to download those. Admittedly, some of the really great ones you need to pay for, but the free ones are nice for starters already.

Possibly you wouldn't want to change the instruments in this composition, but for future ones, possibly?

Aww, thank you for the links @Pleudoniem, i will check them out!

I admit don't be sooooo much interested in the technical stuff of producing.... its like with my car it just need to run.... thats alll lol.  Well I know its an issue by nature with that......
But I see, i need to improve a bit. Thank you  again, i will do me the lecutres next days!!! ::thumb:: ::thumb::

@Mo I understand what you mean when you say you just want it to run. Fortunately, implementing VSTs doesn't require a lot of extra difficulty, or car fixing as you call it. Most of them are ready to use when you implement them.

Possibly some of those filters might be a little intriguing, as you need to find settings you like. And yes, some instruments may be difficult to understand, but you could avoid those, or use their presets only - just click on one, and ready. If you only look at how some of them may greatly add to what you've made, and all the extras that you can make use of without too much of a hassle, I think you will like experimenting with them ;)

I like playing instruments a lot, and I also technically like to tinker with sounds, and yes, that is helpful. But I can also be lazy and pick a preset in a VST of which I just tweek the knobs a bit.

Just to make sure: my tips are not a covert way to tell you to improve ;) Please just keep on doing what you've done, as that appears to work fine for you. I am just offering you some links that might be helpful there.

Oh @Pleudoniem,  don't worry i really appreciate all your suggestions.  Even  if you would  think there is something that need to  be improveld  i would like you would mention. I want learn and thats just possible if someone  dare to point to the 'faults' . I see thats easier  to create when you are able to grab your things out of a greater pool of options.

If I would do this in a longer run i defenitley would like to  change the instruments in my comositions.  I mention again that this here is just a compromise - but again, I won't complain  about  because  I'm happy to have.

I will get me an overview  about your links soon.  Maybe start with just a simple question.... what rather   ist VST the short form for?  ::dj::
