    Weapons of War

    i get carried away sometimes with production so it could be me was expecting a few more things on fire ahah. You have some great triggers, it stands out to me something like the lyric "war drums" which welcomes in a fuller drum beat to kick in on that bit, which is clever production sometimes but works. The great lead guitar at the ends when you hang off the notes, i would try automation with delay or maybe more reverb only on theose notes noit through all the lead guitar, sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.

    Weapons of War

    When you say "war drums" i was expecting some war drum beat to come in a push instead of the same 4/4, just an idea, not a criticism. I think on some of the cymbals clashes i would try and hit the kick at same time has clash to give it more thud, maybe. The breaks with the rhythm riff, i probably give it a bit more crunch saturation because its the weapons of war that need some destruction i think. On the lead solo at end all the backing instruments stay the same level and panning, i would swish or wave them about, maybe give some width (EQ) so lead comes down the middle to give more dynamics, again maybe bit more destruction sound on lead guitar and maybe its begging for tad of delay, which you could automate when you hang off those notes because that's a great led work and some great lyrics. So maybe worth bit more experimental on production.

    Awakening My Soul

    haha Cheers, my YouTube get very little views but oddly a couple of songs had a few, the songs i don't like haha I spend much more time doing music than video and i don't do lives etc. I think you need to do live videos and chats like Mike at Creative Sauce to build a following. Maybe i should do some general music videos on production tips on my soapbox but id end up doing less music... Iv'e got to sort a email list out for when i release a song on Youtube but the mail list platforms charge silly money these days. i did a real old song called "silence is deafening" or it was the chorus i cant remember.

    Thanx a lot Larry for the comment. Iv'e pretty much got mixing and mastering to a good level. I did work for ITV master control room doing pre-post sound production, so i have a good understanding. Yes, music is a personal preference, i try to do my own thing, sometimes I'm in a bombast mood and sometimes emotional feel, its all a learning experience. P

    Nice fat bassline... with a few surprises
  11. Yes Objeq delay and VX64 strip are the only two plugins i have audio dropouts and glitch's with. I know lots of people do so i just work round it. I don't use Objeq delay much and VX64 strip is ok if you don't have it on to many tracks
  12. Youtube wouldn't let you comment ?
  13. Yes i don't think there is anything going to be any better, seems i found a little gem there, it is just not sold at pluginboutique which is my account i use so probably a direct buy
  14. Yes i was thinking of purchasing myself, but was looking at Izotope Nectar 3 and a few others or seeing what ive missed. I just want to make sure i am happy with something first and then its job done. Joe's vocal strip is best ive seen so far, a better all round flexible sounds and proper GUI more about using it than fancy knobs. Joe vocal clients are very impressive, so i am guessing he big in the industry and his expertise with analogue preamps etc seems more real than just another plugin company, which is swaying me. I am just undecided if to build my own vocal strip or go for something like this what Joe created. I currently build my own with cakewalk compressors on pro channel PC 4K and 76 are good enough to be honest, plus the built in Vocal presents FX Chain you can tweak for great results. So if i am spending money i think its better to buy a all in one instead of singles. i also use limiter No6 which is surprising good for free plugin along with cakewalk exciter or soft tube sat, so cakewalk you can get real pro quality end product for sure. The only paid comp i use autoformer as i like the preamp harmonics it gives with some saturation and i use Ozone 9 elements to tweak eq with cakewalk quad pro channel eq, i use them both sometimes to de-esser. i just think the Breverb in cakewalk is amazing so why buy one and the built in delays are enough to do any delay, so i think its better to just get a vocal strip. Ive looks at CLA which is very simple and the JJP Vocals even more basic both by waves. EZ mix is not my cup of tea, fact cakewalk does better job than any of those ive look at apart from Joe Vocal Strip seems to be miles better. What do you think of it should i spend some cash
  15. Iv'e just been told Izotope Nectar 3, anyone used it?
  16. Anyone used this Joe Chiccarelli Vocal Strip
  17. Hi Guys Iv'e used the VX64 Cakewalk vocal strip, its a great plugin however can cause some dropout issues. Does anyone know of something along the same lines that's solid. I have developed my own Vocal strip FX chain but be nice just to use one plugin. cheers P
  18. yes i got this Objeq delay in a deal and i love it but it does cause hangs and drop outs (popping) on Cakewalk. So i don't use on track or bus but directly on the audio clip and once i get the sound i want, i bounce down but its a pain. I also have similar problem with the cakewalk VX 64 vocal strip
  19. Iv'e only got Melodyne 5 assistant and its £255 to upgrade to Studio so not sure i need it haha £85 to Editor. I do basic correction from time to time and don't use it for anything else however the precision-targeted de-esser function sounds good as i always haev sharp S's on my voice
  20. Was intended, i think all call it the marmite effect, love or hate thing. It was a experiment
  21. Cheers Freddy .... doing something a bit more simple next one , short but sweet P
  22. i do say opening lyric "you can't please everyone" haha i decided to take it in that direction as friends kid was dancing to it or i would have kept it more like the beginning
  23. yeh that's the first chorus where it start to go through the changes "Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful" is all in your individual taste's but i was messing with production technique's to see what work and what doesn't...
  24. another season in PL woop woop
