Nice guitars (late 80s vibe), cool drums (Toontrack, I guess?), well balanced mix, everything played “in-the-pocket”. Maybe I’m missing a little bit more low-end, but that’s only personal taste.
You’re late for posting! Hopefully you sent it to the email in-time?!
Good luck to you. 🍻Jerry HayesParticipantJune 27, 2023 at 2:35 pmPost count: 6
Thank you for the listen and review! When this competition started I had just received a few new studio items including main monitors. Extra challenging! Would love a DW drumset but I need a tiny bit bigger studio. So Kontakt for drums, Modo Bass, (keyboard controller for midi trigger on both) reamped clean signals for guitars.
On the last couple days Modo Bass kept “not outputting” sound from midi.. thought I was doomed but kept restarting and it sorted out.
Thank you for commenting about being a little light on the low end. My new main monitors are Focal Solo 6be with 2 10″ subs and room correction software. I had 8″ KRK 3rd Gen speakers which weren’t real accurate.. So I was 2nd guessing everything I was hearing with the Focals! Truly great speakers to track/mix with! I can hear details that were hidden before.
I tried to stay true to Lianne’s song structure and emotion. Loved working on this!
I think I had a couple hours left on June 2nd when I submitted. Lol, Modo Bass glitched out on one note but no time to fix!
Thank you for taking the time to comment and share your opinion. Greatly appreciated.
And thank you Warren and Lianne for the great experience!rentarootParticipantJune 28, 2023 at 7:31 amPost count: 252
Thanks for sharing! Yes, a change in your monitoring is always a challenge!
I’m using my Yamaha HS-7 as main speaker. They have a really flat response. It’s amazing listening to music you know by heart since your childhood, and suddenly hear some never heard fresh details! As a “magnifying glass” I use Focal Listen Professional headphones. They are great for cross-checking, and can reproduce a nice and tight low-end without having to take care about the room-issues… 🎧
Don’t care about the Bass glitches. It’s better to capture the right feeling, than doing all perfect (imho). I also had some “blue notes” in my organ playing, which I did not edit… 🎹
Now let’s wait for the results. I’m curious as hell…!Jerry HayesParticipantJune 28, 2023 at 8:10 pmPost count: 6
Thank you for the reply to my (as usual) long winded reply. Cheers!
I was given the Focal Clear MG Professional headphones for Christmas! (by request). Great headphones and ridiculously accurate from what I’ve been told, But of course they don’t match my Trio 6be speakers perfectly.. I guess I should trust the headphones more as my final say before releasing anything. My room is acoustically treated as much as this human could make it, but I think only outdoors could be a perfect environment to mix in? It took a year from start to finish. When the pandemic hit I went from being extremely busy to full stop! As we all sat around wondering what to do (besides nothing), I couldn’t stand it any longer and decided to build a studio in my house with all the advice I could find. Home depot delivers! Amazon Delivers! UPS delivers! Fed EX.. etc. So “Stir Crazy Studio” was born. LOL most apropriate name I could come up with.
I’ve had a long history starting with Jazz in high school, then paying to play in bands, then running live sound. So I thought I’d give recording and song writing “another” shot.
Still working on stircrazystudio.com
Your right about glitches and some mistakes being second to Feel and overall performance. I’ve made some mistakes and on playback its like, wow that is cool! But good luck doing it again?
Sorry for the long read, still in stir crazy mode I guess.
