I finally got the nads to record one of my songs... I know I overuse autotune, but w/e. I'm so excited. I thought I'd share it with your guys.

Composition, lyrics, and production...?

Besides, I can do it OK without the autotune, though it's harder because it's a slow song... using autotune was a style choice.

Any composition done is kinda ruined by autotuning, plus, the backing track kinda sounded like a default setting on a keyboard. The lyrics... were interesting.

Mainstream radio would disagree. :P

To be fair, I don't have an army of musicians at my disposal. All I have is my voice, a keyboard, and a guitar... so, yeah, most of the instruments were MIDI files that I ran through filters. I wrote all the music though. >_>

I don't know what that means, but haha.

As in, it was I who wrote the backing track and manually inputted all the MIDI.

Decent song, but I have to agree with the idea that autotune lowers it by several levels :(. In some songs a continuous use of vocals with autotune is perhaps appropriate, but I can't see that here.

Couldn't listen to this when you first posted it, but well done for getting it done and having the balls to put it out.

It's certainly not to my tastes and to be brutally honest I found it slightly nauseating but it's definitely an achievement to have constructed the whole thing yourself. The song structure and arrangement is definitely there, I don't like the sounds you've used but they seem appropriate for the genre you're going for.

As far as the autotune goes, I don't see how it detracts from the composition of the song, but I do think it detracts from the vocal performance. If you can sing, then sing; if you can't, then don't. It may be that you are uncomfortable hearing your natural voice recorded, which is perfectly normal, but if you want to sing then you better get used to it. I think autotune can be cool when it is used creatively to make melody out of speech and alter the melody of a sample, as in this vid, but when it's used to just disguise a natural voice, as in your track, it can be a bit annoying.

Good luck with future projects.

Hey, that's a pretty good song, PoeJoe.
