We are slowly coming close to the mission’s finish line, with 3 more weeks to go….. and this is a good opportunity to mention that this album also be a perfect holiday present to your prog loved ones, so consider getting them a copy of the CD, T-shirt, book or anything else ;) …. You do have prog loved ones, don’t you?
Marco totally blows me away here, recording a section of “I Believe in Astronauts”.
Here is a live version of the second tune in my coming album, called “Gravitational Lensing”. We played it here for first time on a show we did in Berlin a couple of years ago.
So how do I get such complex music to sound great in the mix? Here’s a bit of a geek talk about the mix project of “Somewhere in this universe, somebody hits a drum” tune from my coming album.
Admittedly it’s a huge project, much bigger than anything I’ve done before, mainly because of the many tracks and different instruments in the arrangement. So quite a challenge but I’m very happy with what comes out.
Autotune Yay or Nay has been a long running discussion in the music community ever since it was invented. But that discussion became “personal” when decided to take up the vocal parts in “Somewhere in this universe, somebody hits a drum”. I’ve realized that it’s okay to use it, for final touches and make everything sound “perfect”. I still think it’s not meant for compensating for lack of ability to sing.
What do you think? Is it legit to use in some cases?
What do Astronauts play when they don’t play Astronauts?
Matt is giving a little demo.
