Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Thanks for listening guys. I understand that the song needs work. The vocals need to be squashed some. Talking to Mr. Cavell he gave me a few pointers that I will try. Thanks for listening. I will post the other songs when I get them done. They are a lot different than this one.

As for the UGA thing. I lived in Riverbend club. Used to sit in at times with a band called "Day by the River." My roommate was good friends with a band from S. Carolina called "UNCLE MINGO" great band! Great funk!

Loved A-town a lot and wish I could head back there.

When I go visit my folks up in Franklin, NC, maybe we can get a S.East DUC get-together...


Thanks again for listening.... So far I like the guitars, but do need to cut some lows....

Alright, tweeked it a bit. Lowered a lot of the lows and I think that I got the BOOMINESS out of it for the most part. Headphones are your friend I guess. I also added Autotune to her voice in the key they played and set the thing so that it worked but was not always throwing it out. I think that it helped it some. There is one part that I may bypass it in the beginning, but I am not sure. Also, took RVox and squashed the hell out of it. Set it to 20 and -10. Gate was somewhere in between the settings.... Seemed to really level it out and take away the unwanted dynamics of the vocals. Took some lows out of the guitars and lowered the bass a tad too. Also notched back the kick and snare some too.... Eq'd the toms a little better and lowered them in the overall mix too.

Inputs are welcome please. Still trying to work this vocal issue. Onto the next song until then.


Thanks as always,

Hi Doc,

bbj's right, it sounds wwaayy better, alot tighter. Just a couple thoughts...that's a pretty busy bassline, anyway you could bring it out a bit more. I don't think it suits the song IMO, I'm just thinking the song lacks some foundation, again IMO. Also at the end there's a distorted/fuzzy guitar that doesn't seem to sit right...you guessed it...IMO.

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Funny you should ask that on the mic. It was a AKG D112, but it was the first time I was mic'n the Gretsch that I just bought and the front head was not right. Should have taken it off, but I did not. Had a real lousy flab sound, so what did I do you ask....? I took Strip Silence (control-U)and isolated the kick tracks to just the hits and the tails. Then I consolidated the track and used SOUND REPLACER on the kick and replaced it with a sample of a DW Kick that I have. Also slapped RBass on it and worked it at about 69hz. Thickened it up a bit... Worked a lot better. Did the same for the snare, but lef the overall MEAT of the original in the overheads. worked better and gave it more of a rock attack like feel.

ScottDog - I can bring that basslline out a bit more yes. Actually reduced it due to being too busy. These guys are pretty young and again, this was their first recording experience so it was a shock to them with all the work involved. The distorted fuzzy guitar is actually there the entire time. That is their other guitar player. Pretty sloppy, and they really wanted him to be way back in the mix.... so he is there. I may cut him off quicker at the end. thanks for that...

Also, I added 10 samples on my Studio site below. Look under the sounds page. There is a band that I finished up a 10 song album with . Ole' school rock, but it turned out great and was a killer time to work on.

thanks again,
- Doc

Sounds GREAT! You have a wonderful voice.

Did you do the mastering yourself or send it out?

Is that all you playing, or is there a band?
