That was great...that Bonnie Raitt song, along with 'All at Once', is to me a masterpiece in melancholy songwriting...the lyrics are just so from the heart, and of course, the music....sheesh.
thanks Gene....well done.

I had posted my first mix of this here before...Chris Cavell just did a fine job of mastering that original mix...this is the new version.
thanks, Roy

Here goes nothin...

My new track (East Side, Baby!) is ready for listening. This is my first track I've made with Pro Tools and my new 002r, so it was definitely a learning experience. This is also the first song I've made in 2 years or so. I think it is my best track yet. I have some work to do on mixing technique, and next on my list of gear to buy is some decent monitors (probably KRK V6). I need to work on my levels too. Due to some peaks in the song normalizing it didn't get it as loud as it should be. I'll do better next time.

The lyrics were written by a friend of mine and performed by my brother, friend, and I. Please be gentle, none of us are really musicians, and are definitely not rappers. Please be sure to clear some space around your booty while this is downloading so it will have some room to wiggle.

Get it here (192kbit) or or here (128k) depending on your bandwidth.

Re: Mac Mixes!!!!!!!!
I decided to start this thread form the beginning and MAN, this band is awesome! This is definitely my cup of tea. Great job on the production also, EricHSound.

Well Roy,

You know I dig it!

(If anyone would like to collaborate on anything just shoot me an e-mail...I'm sort of "between jobs" at the moment and have a lot of spare time for this kind of thing right now...or if you hear of any employment opportunities out there you'd like to pass on to me: chriscavell(at)cavellstudios.com)


I know you're out of town for the weekend, but I went ahead and took a listen to the preprod. takes you've got up. Good stuff. As for recording and fidelity, I think the last two have the best sound. The tunes could definitely use a producer to envision and translate what you've got into a final album. I'm thinking for the drums you'd do best with a very simple equation: ride+hat+crash+snare+kick+floor tom+nothing else except a kick***** drummer = great music! Get a drummer that can play brushes for real...you know, flip back and forth between the front and back end of the brush mid-swing and never miss a beat. For the bass...go demeter baby! We've talked alot about pre's lately...and to be honest, I'd go for a 1081 on him. The 72's aren't the same, but the 73i's should sound identical to a 81 when not cranked (there's a third gain stage in the 81 that only comes into play when cranked...otherwise they should be identical). I'd rent or borrow a vox mic and depending on the tune use a 72 or a 73/81 for the pre. What kind of vox mics do you have at your disposal these days?

Cheers to all and have a great weekend,

Re: Let\'s hear your latest stuff....right here
Cozmo...I dig the old-school hip-hop beat and feel to East Side, Baby! On occasion it's a syllable gets lost here and there. A little voiceover compression on the vocal tracks would clear that right up. Nice Work!

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

Great job on the live stuff! BTW, Mike Reid wrote "I can't make you love me." Keep it up, it's really good work. These small coffee shop style live gigs can be some of the most difficult to get a good product out of.

Re: Asian Sun - complete piece.

I don't know what to say...Asian Sun is a GREAT composition. I really dig it! (post more please)

Great tune...and you may want to keep those flu-ridden vocals...it might be that it adds a sense of strain to the tune you'd never be able to recreate in a healthy state! If I've got time I'll send you an e-mail about it...so watch your in-box...

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

What's this song I've been listening to here on repeat?

Oh...Of Madness and Magic. A beauty. Really.

I can't say I'm a big (or small) fan of guitar
instrumentals, but this one breaks down my normal
aversion (boredom). Is that you on the lead guitar?

Damn...the phrasing is so nuanced and it's all so
beauitfully, emotionally rooted in great melodies.

(Jeff Beck an influence?)

The repeating (mandolin?) motif is just enchanting.

I'm gonna keep repeating it here in my office
on this Friday. Fits my minor hangover very gently. Thanks.
