Another Cover Mix I Did
 
This is another cover mix I did for Rebecca Roberts over in the UK of "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic. The interesting thing about this track is that the vocals were recorded in Russ Hughes's studio in the UK...the Pro Tools Expert Russ! I arranged with him for Rebecca to record her vocals over there. For the track I again got hold of a descent midi track for a starting point, and then went from there. A lot of the orchestral sounds on this track are from either one of my Yamaha Motif XS8 sample libraries or Structure. I also used a bit of Xpand for a couple of the synth sounds.

The drum kit came off my Motif as well.

Tell me what you think.

Not bad, not bad at all. I'd have placed a plate verb with some pre-delay on the snare a little, it's pretty dry. But you pulled out a good rendition of the song.

Thanks, Manny, really appreciate it! The hardest part of the whole project for me was getting the right blend of orchestral sounds. Fortunately, I had some good options to choose from between all my Motif sound banks plus several I had with Structure and Reason. Between them, I think I got a descent orchestral effect.

I just listen to your track I really like it I would like a little bit more bass frequency (just a personal preference) and personally I really like the sound of the mix ( the guitar voice relationship) @ 1:10 and then as well @ 1:50 that's the perfect sound for me with the guitar/voice relation.

To me the 1st verse the guitars are fighting the voice too much. Listen at 1:10 section and the 1:50 section they have a better relation.

Sounds good

I think the voice needs a boost somewhere around the mid high-high range listening back I think.

How would you suggest boosting the bass frequency of the overall mix? A simple eq boost?

Thanks again for your feedback!

After over a year of recording, mixing and mastering my wife's(Amber Bowen) EP - The Count, is released and available to stream on soundcloud and to purchase on iTunes:

https://soundcloud.com/fbrrecording/...ep-amber-bowen

I made the jump to Pro Tools after recording her first 4 song demo and having a system crash in Nuendo. It was a quick transition, with ups and downs. With the help of the users in here I was able to get a solid handle on the features in Pro Tools that matched my workflow. Thanks for all the help guys, and gals. These tracks are recorded in the old trailer I was renting prior to buying our house, and a great deal of the vocals were done on location. Mastering was done at Baker studio's, by Joby Baker in Victoria, BC.

Follow myself FBR recording and my wife Amber Bowen on facebook to keep up to date. You can also find our stuff free to stream on the CBC radio 2 webpage, just search for Amber Bowen. Thanks again for all your support, now off to the studio to start tracking some new material.

I like it 👍


Aahhhhh. I got it now(sort of). Should have got it before. Trying to remember all the Freq. 😳
Still need to treat my room though.
Thanks for the help YYR123.
