A Little Bit - REMIX 05 Apr 2020

Recommended Posts

Here's another pass. Better drums, more mixing and tweaking throughout. Suggestions and comments welcome.

Lather, rinse, repeat!
The "Jack Bruce" bass is growing on me; I must admit.
Now the bgvox is "supporting" the lead, much better.
I forget, you're using EZD?
If so "drop" a two or four bar kick and snare (don't "tap" it)
in the search field, it'll kick back a bunch of "patterns".
PM if you have issues with it, we'll get it sorted, you'll love it.

Much better my brother, and the song deserves it!

I just replaced the drum kit and boosted the volume on the snare.

What is 'EZD?'

Not sure what you mean when you say ' so "drop" a two or four bar kick and snare (don't "tap" it)
in the search field, it'll kick back a bunch of "patterns".'

And yeah, I was too lazy to re-record the bass 😄, I just tweaked the EQ on that in the pro channel.

Thanks for the input!

If EZD is 'Easy Drummer', then no. I just composed a simple pattern using the step sequencer.

I enjoyed the listen - it's a cool blues song.  I like your vocal, as I've mentioned before.

My only crit - that drum track could use more variation - more fills for example, and bring in the ride on the chorus.

A very good point. I'm still pretty weak on drum composition, and new to home recording in general, so specific recommendations like yours are very helpful, thanks.

Here's a quick example of what EZDrummer 2 can do with its search function.

Not trying to proselytize here, and bear in mind here I have a rather "extensive" collection of ToonTracks' midi content.
Its akin to getting a "deal" on an inkjet printer, only to find that the "ink" is where they make their money...

Its general midi drum clips and should work with whatever drum VSTi you are using.
Just replace the TTS-1 instance they are assigned to with your VSTi of choice.
Let me know if you want some help.

Fascinating.  Nailed the BPM. These sound good. Any way I can outright steal these? LOL.

I don't consider myself knowledgeable enough at this stage to put too much attention on the drums. This is my very first CWP, after all.  But this is compelling.

I like this - but have to agree on the drums - that could really turn this into a great track

Good stuff

I liken EZD and Superior Drummer to Brian Wilson walking into United Western Recorders
and handing the charts to The Wrecking Crew. Hal Blaine is sitting at the kit, and away you go.
The grooves and performances contained in the ToonTracks libraries are a "work made for hire".
I paid for them...
Now they are yours!
If you require any more assistance just reach out via the PM on the forum. Glad to help...

I find most of grooves require a little "massaging", but all were laid down by drummers, not guitar players.
need I say more?
