#Rpm MixingMastering Day28 You Said Hello Song8 v7

This song is the mastered version. I never posted marks mix for it so I thought I would post both for you enjoyment. There are no mastering notes for this song, I started on the 1st few and then stopped. I nearly fell asleep due to bouncing down till 2am and Matt’s room is so softly lit it makes you sleepy.

You Said Hello [Song8 Version7]
Mixing Comments [Mr Mark Dollin] Day25

  • Ah! Now we get nasty Hunz. The lofi gore has arrived ;) Listening through a few times.
  • Starting out with all the drum elements and getting the tone right. Also changing some dynamics settings so things aren’t as snappy. Sending everthing to a group channel to lift and control the tone even more. Ok supper happy with the results.
  • Now to the instruments. Starting with the bass. Tone is now better. Onto the higher synths, making the lofi sound smoother. Ok, all the melodic elements together to check for balance. Tweaking little things to jostle it togther.
  • Now adding the drums. Squeezing the lead guitar compressor harder. Minor tweaks. Happy enough for now.
  • Onto the vocals. Cleaning first! Editing the vocal acapella and sent to a group. Wow some wickid distortion here! Global tone shaped. Now for channel edits: knocking out bass that isn’t needed.
  • Now adding all the other sounds. Food time, so time for an ear break.
  • Back into it with fresh ears. Slight adjustment on the bass. Fine tuning the lofi synth.
  • Onto headphones. Little out of the bass mids. Adding some clean dry sound to the lofi synth.
  • Checking on the big speakers. Perfect! Ok time to save and send!

#Rpm Day24 Song8 v6

Completed Song 7 this morning and then completed 8 this afternoon and about to–trumpet sound please–finish up the last song. Really enjoyed working on this song, AND I just noticed the guitar parts I had done by a friend in Nashville are too loud in the mix which I’ll fix later. Big thanks go to everyone leaving constructive comments. I get so caught up in everything that I forget to get a new perspective on the songs. Both Roma Loom and Nicheno have suggested and said things that have really rung true with me and changed the flow of this song and the the other 2 I was working on. So thank you! If you have ideas you wish to add, it’s getting too tight to change things up, hope you enjoy it, I certainly have even though I’m whiny to my wife a lot .. :P

Hunz Song8 Version6

 

[Verse]
I’m holding up this stop
This bus will come undone
All eyes are looking forward
it’s time to end this run

 

[Chorus]
And I know, what you do to me
you said hello and I followed you
my friends they just cautioned me
and I just followed

 

[Verse]
I want to go right there
but if we can’t lets fight
I’ll offer up my arms high
I’ll even say your right

 

[Chorus]
And I know, what you do to me
you said hello and I followed you
my friends they just cautioned me
and I just followed

 

  • Listening through. Song has all the parts, I just have to vocal it all now.
  • My cat just walked over to me, haha. I think he thinks I’m hurting, but I’m singing the chorus.
  • Hearing little background vocals in the chorus that are snappy and will lead into this bridge I have setup.
  • Putting strange distortion on verse vocals that is making it sound neat and placing building-up delays behind it to turn on and off with the beat.
  • Been having major Asio driver issues with my fireface400. It just starts stuttering within renoise and then stops working. Right now I didn’t save before reinitialize. Think I lost a chunk of work, just hoping vocals aren’t gone.
  • Ugh, resetting renoise T_T
  • Just lost all my 1st verse vocal automations. I save a lot when I make changes to songs so .. phew
  • Will continue to arrange this tune.
  • Lunch.
  • Completing out the arrangement going to keep this simple and clean. Created severe cut-off effect to accentuate the awesome mindblowing – ed. my wife is rewriting this :( groove.
  • Added Jesse Palmer’s Guitar parts. He’s a mate of mine in Nashville who I asked to write some parts for it .. THANK YOU!
  • created happy ending, why? Dunno, just felt like it could do it .. hehe
  • Wow, I think I mixed Jesse’s parts way too loud; I’ll fix that later .. eeep.

 

Wish me luck on the last tune people.

 

#Rpm Day12 Song8 V4

I’m going back to work on this song until I get some sleep, but I’m just enjoying where this Song8 took me. If you listen back you’ll hear that start, and then listen to yesterday and then today. It’s like chalk and cheese (i think that’s the lamest saying but ‘meh who I am to change things .. lol). The chorus is a bit, err, jazzish and um. So hard to describe. I think I tread this line of being really commercial, and it scares me. I really just want to push electronic music, not sound like some pop sensation.

 

There is no list today. I just wrote and got lost in the music, and I enjoy that the most when it’s teaching me things, and I’m tapping out beats and quickly adding chns and adding new percussion here and there. So enjoy.

If you haven’t already and you felt like it, vote for me at Garage to V. It’s the last days ,and I guess we’ll see if I get to play the V festival.

 

#Rpm Day11 Song8 V3

It’s been really muggy and hot here in brisbane. When I get home the heat in the house takes a few hours to go away. I don’t like summer at all, it’s so blerg. I created a strong beat build up that may or may not link into Song8 v1. I may ditch that movement as I find it a little cliche, sorry if you like it. Not much tonight, just a beat with bass. I can’t wait to hear this fresh later on and hear a really great melody over the top of it. I think I’ll save it and wait till I forget it.

Hunz Song8 V3

  • Working on sketch 08
  • Want to see if it’s going to go somewhere
  • sound card crashed
  • 3 reboots and then I changed Fire wire ports
  • Seems to be ok, will check the other port later.
  • Getting feedback from the beat
  • Adding a tonne of Scream Filter passes in it.
  • Just added more and more layers of beats
  • Changed the bass to trigger repetitive mood out
  • Like it but can’t seem to find a good vocal line
  • will approach this later.
  • Close file.

 

I feeling a bit over it tonight but I know that’s the heat. Work has been so full on that it just zaps the passion out of you when you get home but I’ll try to inject that frustration into melodies instead.

 

#Rpm Day9 Song8 V1

I almost just did nothing tonight. I feel blah about this tune. Purely because i wrote it for the sake of it, and it just highlights my style and the band cliche’s within it. I could be WAY off the mark but ‘eh. Did I mention it’s incredibly hot tonight, and I hate the heat. :sad: My perfect day is rainy but being indoors, and that coolness greets you. You taunt me so!!

Hunz Song8 V1

  • Created an instrument
  • I drew in the sine wave (I love renoise for this feature .. F11 (use 32bit) and then Ctrl+Shift+D and draw in the sample editor
  • I tweaked it in the Instrument editor. Using Pans/Volume and some Automation, it made me feel like I was listening to Plaid (I love that band)
  • Started playing in notes and put the click track on and something stuck out
  • I REALLY want to do a sliding bass song .. like a Fret less but crazy
  • My Microphone was setup, so I started singing melodies I was hearing. I like High parts that switch to low and then wobble around the breaking point (think Zombie by The Cranberries here people)
  • I’m feeling indifferent but I needed to get something out tonight.

 

Time for me to sleep. I have a 6am start in the morning, so FEAR my state in the morning. Thanks for all your wonderful words for the 1st song too.
