  1. Hi Tom thank you so much for the feedback and suggestions. I'll go back and take a listen - next time I update it I will keep this in mind. Aaron is from England (on Bandlab) and he did the vocal...he does a lot of Beach Boys harmonies as well - he's got a much better range than I do. As far as the mix and when the bass comes in, it is something I have been trying to do some automation around. In this case, I boosted the bass and highend of the piano when it was alone and gradually pull it back, but it still did not bring it up to the areas where iZotope Tonal Balance Control was happy. It is something I intend to work on in the future. Some of those strings were actual acoustic violin which Michael Herter supplied (Bandlab, Germany). Steve
  2. Thanks Jeff - are you on Bandlab?
  3. Hey it sounds great - always loved that song and you did it justice.
  4. After listening to the Analogues on youtube doing the whole White Album live (!!!) - I did this cover of Martha My Dear. Italy, Germany, England and USA checking in! @sibviolin violins, @michelefortunato trombones, @azzronika vocals and myself to round it out. #beatles #rock #horns #violins #iinternationalcollab https://baselines.com/?p=5564
  5. Thanks a lot Mark - Steely Dan songs take a long time to learn! I'll let @kiwichrys know about your comments here.
  6. I got some info from @kiwichrys, and this is what she said. She also said it was probably more due to me using Nectar on what she sent, but I agree the quality is good. 'An old old rusty banged up 100% reliable sm58 shure mic with xlr lead directly into a focusrite scarlett 212 interface then via a monitor volume amplifier (cos scarlett is crap for monitor volume) straight into the pc USB and directly into the bandlab studio recorder.'
  7. Thanks a lot Paul - yes it took a few weeks to get all the parts! I'm not very good on guitar, so I had to learn and record it in smaller sections.
  8. Thanks Douglas - not sure. I've asked her for more info. She lives in New Zealand. I'll report back. On my end, I process vocals with Nectar 3.
  9. https://baselines.com/?p=5550 New Bandlab collaboration @kiwichrys on vox, @michelefortunato on the bones, @rabbitwithmachinegun on Flutes. I do the rest. Inspired by a recording engineer who flew to Haiti to obtain a quickie divorce. Dean Parks played the riff that Becker altered with a talk box. 1976 Royal Scam.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Maybe I'll take another try at it. It was hard to get the vocals right on this one.
  11. Thanks Douglas. The vocal was tricky here. You can probably tell I had to do a lot of processing to get it to sound close.
  12. Thanks Freddy - it was a great time to listen to music. I really loved his Sunday Papers and a bunch of others from that album. We were breaking into the music industry at the same time.
  13. Heheh - yup me too. I was reading up on the song while doing it and he actually ran into problems because certain people thought that it was a racist line. Lots of snowflakes in the world today I guess! Thanks for the kind words!
  14. My buddy Doug Cross on vocals (@thelonewulfproject on Bandlab) Do you upload to Bandlab? Let me know and I will follow you and leave you feedback there. Maybe we could collaborate. https://baselines.com/?p=5499
  15. One of the most human country voices is no longer with us. Of course, there was the First Edition as well. This song was always one of my favorites. Doug Cross (@thelonewulfproject on Bandlab) does the vocal. https://baselines.com/?p=5480
  16. Thank you! I try to keep the Beatles songs as close to the original as possible - I like doing things that way I always learn stuff.
  17. I saw the same logo, but no activity yet. There was a little 'about section' - I don't know whether they take that from the forums or not.
