Song3 Version4
Mixing Comments [Mr Mark Dollin]

  • I think I found my new favourite RPM song! What bliss and pain all rolled together! Listening through a few times to get a sense of all the bits. I’ll be approaching the mix using the same method as all the previous mixes. Low, to high, to vocals, to the whole mix. Oddies follow:
  • Fixing some buggy clicks in the kick drum – still gritty but not so clicky.
  • Lifiting the tone of all the drums, time for some punch!
  • Now to the synths, fixing spatialities and tones to make sure there’s nothing left but detailed high magic.
  • Bass is dissappearing into the kick in places so I’m adding a wide chorus to let it speak it more above the kick.
  • Now to sample cleaning! Clean clean clean…
  • Sending all the vocals to a group to get a nice shape to the sound. Adjusting the tone of each vocal sound to get it all interlock.
  • Now adding everything back with the vocals. Making more tweaks to vocal placements to emphasise the drama of the parts.
  • Putting a lengthend fade at the end.
  • Checking on headphones. Fine adjustments here and there.
  • It’s getting late so it would be wise to have a final check with fresh ears early tomorrow.
  • Earling morning session. Fixing some more vocal settings, getting everything flowing and balanced.
  • Time to check on the big speakers loud! More fine adjusting on vocals.
  • Back to the main speakers for one last check. Ok done!

#Rpm Day22 Song3 v2

I really think this song has a lot going for it I only hope I pushed it in the right direction. The problem is, if I didn’t, then I don’t have time to fix it up and tomorrow for me will tell if I did. I think it’s got a good 4-6hrs left in it to fix it up so I’m hoping I can do that this week. Scarey. I have 4 tunes to compelete out T_T

Hunz Song3 Version2

 

[Verse]
Couldn’t take this morphine
Even if it’s a craze
I’m so dumb I’m trying
to keep up with my age, oh no!
I’m so dark from hiding
But I’ve turned out ok
so much is overdone it’s
all feeling tame

 

[Chorus]
Soon, Soon, Soon, soon.

 

[Bridge]
To take it all it’ll break our knees
Consume more, it is our disease

 

[Verse]
the push keeps on pushing
through one shape that aint new
our heart ache is dire
money wraps it with glue, oh no!
I’ll keep up till happy
and I’m told it will do
this style is not my choice
I’m a product of you

 

[Chorus]
Soon, Soon, Soon, Soon.
I am seeing life
Beating up on me
I want it to stop
someone help me, please.

 

[Bridge]
To take it all it’ll break our knees
Consume more, it is our disease

 

  • Listening through it all
  • It’s all very strong so I’m just going to arrange this out and see what happens.
  • Finding some nice hidden patterns I threw away that fit in.
  • Creating a heavy sung section after the soft chorus
  • I think this will help the cut and paste feel of the song.
  • I am going to have it tack on the end of the chorus to see if it enhances it.
  • Working through the chorus and adding 80′s reverb to snare .. never thought I would hear the day I would say that.
  • Not enjoying the heavy part after the 1st chorus as much as I thought so I’m making a slow part.
  • Not completed but Bouncing the track down for listening.

 

Time for some sleeps, after my Song7 post.

 

#Rpm Day2 Song3 v1

Wow, I was so tired when I got home. I came into work early, got up at 6am, I know it’s not THAT early but I’m a musician so, err, shut it. Then left early to get home at around 5pm to start another music sketch up.
 
I got REALLY annoyed at the loop (or was I annoying it?) while I was working on this tune and then after dinner it all fell into place. I personally blame the kick (which is a bad motown tom) because it had so many BAD frequencies in it that .. well, hearing it so much hurt my alpha and beta waves in my brain, no?. This tune is getting there, it has some motown moments. I love soul music so I do anything to inject it into my music ..

Verse 
Couldn’t take this morphine
Even if it’s a craze
I’m so dumb I’m trying
to keep up with my age
I’m so dark from hiding
But I’ve turned out ok
so much is overdone it’s
all feeling tame
 

See you same time tomorrow O_o. I hope they don’t all start sounding the same .. PHEAR. Over the weekend I’ll attempt to output each pattern before I change it and then do a similar thing but with time break downs but you’ll get to hear it . . . phew.
