GP,
I just noticed what you wrote, and I really appreciate the complement. I think you're right about the solo.... I should probably add one about midway through.....

Thanks, Roy

Currently doing a remaster of a country artist I produce, we originally recorded this stuff on ADAT, but I've transferred it into my digi001 setup and we're remastering the entire album

This is a rough mix of one of the songs:

Clarence Bouse - Alive and Well

Let me know what ya think!

We just posted the third Second Skin track we've done. "Still My Love" is the title, and it will be featured on Cleopatra Records' upcoming compilation titled "Kiss The Night".

Hope you enjoy.

Geeesh! This mp3.com thing took a while to post my song. Anyway, I'd appreciate any feedback you cats can give. This is my VERY FIRST attempt at recording a song, so go easy on it. It's kind of a sappy song (compared to some of the awesome rockin' stuff on here), but please check it out.
The song is titled Love&Pain and you can find it here:

Canteenboy.For a first attemt,youve done yourself proud.I could give you some pointers,if you like,although I am only a jedi apprentice myself.Would you like them posted or emailed?

Please email them, unless of course they're general tips from which others could gain. Either way, I'm excited to hear your advice.

Canteenboy,
No need to shoot. Nice tune. Sort of a raw sound which goes with the tune quite well. Not overly produced. Mixed OK, at least by my ears here at work. Liked it. Wish I could do that well.

Just finished listening to "This Life". Thanks Peter. Your talent is amazing! Truly amazing. The mix is so defined, and moving. Without clutter yet rich with sound. Another I'll add to my portable MP3 playlist.

Roy Howell 11-09-2001 02:35 AM

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Peter,

Just fantastic... I am so glad that 'This Life' is as good as 'Over and Over'.

The great actor James Earl Jones once said of Marlon Brando, "I can learn from that..."
And that's how I feel about your incredible production quality. It's not so much the song, as in how you've treated it, with such finesse. Just great, great......

Keep 'em coming ....... Roy

Canteenboy 11-09-2001 03:12 AM

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
 
Mark & Last(Peter)-

Thanks for the nice words. I appreciate the tips.

Last-
I just had a chance to listen to these two tunes, and I must say, I have some mixed feelings. I can't decide if I should be excited at the possibilities in my future of music making as I learn more about recording, or if I should just reformat my audio drive and hang up the towel. Your recordings are just soooooooo perfect. I am really speechless. Wow. You have raised the bar for all of us, and in time, I'm sure I will thank you for it. For now, I'll just grit my teeth and say, Great Job...damn Great Job.

Yes its a chello,and a violin,with some midi strings,all double tarckced a lot.I find when doing midistrings its best to use layers and layers of different sounds and play each of them in manualy,thus giving the big string effect,and,if possible,mix some real strings into it.This intro was cut out from one of the choruses,cause I wasnt happy with the songs original intro(guitar),which caused the strings to make the song back heavy.I cut it out and did some dubious fade ins and outs to make it work.Although the stings in its original form represents 50%violins,25% violas,and 25% chellos,I like highlighting different layers of it in different parts of the song.This gives the strings more life and more realism.When you listen to an orchestra,they sound different from moment to moment as the room changes,you move your head and the 1st violinist's period starts.This is a big reason for one midi patch not being able to crack it.The artifacts you hear in the mp3 version(slight flanging) isnt meant to be there.It isnt audible on the wav.file,but its still there,it was created because the vocalist decided at the last moment that the song ought to be 2 semitones lower,after everything had been turned to audio and the strings mixed.So the whole song was pitch shifted track by track.Two weeks later she came in the studio and said she is considering asking for the song to be raised a semitone.What happened after that got me fired of the project,about which I am very happy.

Ithought it might be something like that

Peter,

Interesting... One question, what did you use for the light, in-pitch, conga-type percussive sound? I think it's at the beginning of a verse. (going from memory).....

You can EMail me if you prefer, and thanks,

Roy

The instrument itself is some mid african drum that I just cant remeber the name of lol.What I can remember tis that it is some distant relative of the tabla.A friend of mine(a producer)gave me a couple of loops of a session he recorded of an african drummer once a while ago,using this instrument.I cut samples out of this and assembled my own loop.It was one of the things I didnt pitch shift,because,even though it has a pitch to the ring,it still seemed in the envelope of the shifted song,so I left it alone.Sorry I cant be of more help.There is a regular tabla loop in there too,but I ninja mixed that so you'll only hear it if its gone.

Vouts,

Thanks for the complement. I know it's a strange piece, but it's mainly an experiment in writing music backwards, and adding it to music that's written forwards. A little bit of theory in reverse. But, that's OK, it's good for me, and it was fun.....


Thanks, Roy

Here is a direct streaming link to some music I have been working on. It is a live recording of some old 60's music, "You Keep Me Hangin' On" by Vanilla Fudge.

Recorded with 16 tracks of ADAT, imported digitally to Pro Tools at 48k, 16 bits. Mixed internally using Waves R-compressor and R-EQ. MP3 conversion with N2MP3.

Three part vocal harmony, no overdubs, no samples, real drums.
