I can't hear the DC offset click! Where exactly is it?
I just realized that I've been mistaken about what a DC offset is, so sorry, my bad. What I'm hearing in the song is a click due to the vocal track clip not starting at the zero-crossing. A fade was supposed to correct this but got deleted for reasons unknown.

The first song I ever wrote back in the early 80’s. My playing isn’t Up to the standard that people on here are capable of and the vocals are definitely not so apologies for that. Still getting to grips with recording, mixing etc so not that polished either but this is pretty much what I had in my head for about 30 years before I had the means to record it. Looking forward to any comments.

Lot's of interesting stuff here! I guess I may as well throw one in. This was written and recorded a long time ago.... approx 1990....just before Nirvana came out and turned everything on it's head lol. I was listening to Trevor Rabin, Mr. Mister and the like. This was a co-operative writing effort between me, singer and keyboard player.

Since there’s no sub forum for this. I’ll start with a song I wrote with my good buddy in a cabin in the forest. https://m.soundcloud.com/user-141562468/wreck-a-silly-nation

Looking forward to hearing original stuff from members!

I can relate with that. I've had some songs that were either stuck in development hell so to speak, or because I've been a bit more particular with how I want the final recording to sound. Unlike a live performance, recordings are there to stay, so that had me tarrying on releasing something in full for quite some time.

In a previous post on here I said something similar. I’ve got tons of ideas I’ve recorded that just need to be arranged and turned into a finished song but I keep going back to older stuff and tweaking certain elements and not liking other parts. It became a bit obsessive but I think I can put it aside now and get something new completed. Finding the time right now seems to be the hardest part of recording.

I wish i could as i have recent material but i have no way to do it as i don't have a computer online but rather a dedicated 17" laptop for recordings. Its great to see posters here.
