You’re working that Katana man. That’s badass.
Sounds really good
Sounds real nice. That beginning riff and guitar sound sounds real familiar by a popular band. I can't put my finger on it yet. Wait, Is it Radiohead I'm thinking of?
DOD BONESHAKER, you say? Huh, a DOD pedal I haven't heard of, lol... I've gotta look into THAT! Thanks, hoss!
Thanks, Bluzy! Workin on the lyrics and melody currently... I THINK I've got somethin that'll work... I hope so, anyway, lol...
Ahh, that would be Steven Slate Drums version 5, I think, and I'm runnin it in Reaper... And I'm actually usin the FREE drum kit in SSD5... Literally ALL I use is "budget" stuff... But my "trick" is; After I get the drum parts programmed EXACTLY how I want (and I do it ALL by hand, no premade loops), then I render (mixdown) a track of JUST the drums... I leave the original SSD5 drums at 0 volume, then drop the rendered or mixdown into a track right below my original drums, and I usually add compression and a lil high end EQ to the mixdown and keep the volume of the mixdown slightly lower than the original... And I've been gettin pretty good results, in my opinion...
Well, like I said, I was kinda goin for a Queens Of The Stone Age/Desert Rock/Stoner Rock vibe... As for Radiohead, I've actually never listened to 'em... I've heard "Song 2", "Creep", and "Karma Police", but that's about it, lol... I've kinda always seen Radiohead as a band that "cooler" people than me listen to, lol...
Gracias, Tony... Yeah, I like to futz with it, lol... People never believe me when I tell 'em that I'm usin the "Acoustic" channel, lol, but I am, lol... BUT I AM usin the onboard MetalZone as a "preamp", lol...
Nice work! Good, tight playing and use of dynamics.
A little different from Les' New Sound.
EDIT: But carrying on the multi-tracking tradition.
Sounds great. I like the snare too.
Freaking horns \m/! Yes your acoustic channel I presume is cleaner than the other.. Its kind of like what I have to do with my JC-120.. I dont have a gain function, or a effects send on the amp, so these types of shaping have to be done in front.
Sounds like Katana is giving you that access to duet where and how you want it on the amp. That Katana is tots fo sho!
Nice tight, sneaky, dirty, slot eq goodness. As far as vocals go, kind of sounded like some Phil Anselmo type vocal are might be cool.. Meaning his range..
Nice presentation sir!
Thought the same mehself.. Nice drums.. Reminded me of a boss kit years ago.. Tight..
Thank you, Rodie! I've got an idea for the vocals... Might run it by you guys, but the idea is kinda "Emotional Weather" and how this storm is "you and me"... I'll post my idea soon... But thanks!
Ive got a version of those slate drums on deck, it may be awhile as I have to build a new platform for recording.. Lol. I have that Emmissary plugin. I just need to get to it.. recently I had to delete out guitar rig five as it had integrated all over my daw.. Weird deal it was..
Just listened to your presentation again.. That mix was fantastic.. Cool sound on the guitars.. Definitely a thick brick in the mix..
I still use a recent fall in from Gstomper for drums, but ive dallied with other kits as well. Yes i know what you mean on the drums keeping them under the 0 db level.. Rendering does strange things to level.. Best to get the drums like you like them with a shell for quickness.. I aint a drummer but when you build your drums it will drive you nuts trying to get them right, and keeping you from getting to the meat.. I like to write them from scratch at times with several kits to see if i can get a vibe.. Used to do more of that with fruity... I like me some good templates coz i dont know where everything goes..lol..
Yes id like to hear what you put together on the vocs.. Good upbeat music shell to spit it with fo sho!
