Let Me Go

Recommended Posts

Hi Forum Folks,

This is a track off of the album I'm currently working on called "The Westerly Sessions Vol. VI". As always, any comments or critiques are welcome, and thanks for listening.

I sang the lead vocal with an AT4040 through a Warm Audio TB12 preamp - and I also used the Voxengo Voxformer on it, along with a Rob Papen delay vst.

The rhythm guitar is a Fender Strat through TH-U, and the lead guitar parts are my Gibson Les Paul through TH-U.

The bass is an Ibanez SR500 through an ART MPA Gold preamp - through TH-U.

The organ parts are UVI Retro Organ Suite.

The drums are AD2 - I put the Waves Abbey Road Saturator on the drum buss - it made the drums really come alive for this song.

For reverb I used REmatrix from Overloud on the main bus - just a touch.

Here is the song:

Your stuff must be fun to perform live.    Another great song from *the westerly sessions*  The drums sound a little different in this one.

:D

Well done Douglas.

we all paint very different pictures... on my monitors I can hear over saturation...  just a little bit harsh on the top end.

Nice work.  Great guitar sound and nice riff, the guitar part in the verse reminds me of "Gimme All Your Lovin'" by ZZ Top.

I like how much the snare cuts through it as well without overpowering everything.

I really like this one, Douglas!  It reminds me of early Stones, especially your vocal.  I guess I'm going to have to unpack my TH-U and start playing around.

Really cool track, but I would have expected more"life" in the vocals.
Your voice sounds good, but I find the interpretation a bit monotonous.

Thanks Gary - I put the Abbey Road Saturator on the main drum buss, and I had the Abbey Road Vinyl plug on the main stereo mix - perhaps that adds up to a bit too much saturation overall - thanks for your ears.

Has a real 60's vibe.

Thanks Kurt - it's probably the organ that gives the song a 60s or 70s vibe.

Thanks Tom - I've never played a PRS - I'll have to stop by Guitar Center one of these days to try one out. Thanks for commenting on my other song as well.

Thanks Kev - I'm glad you noticed the snare - I've put more concentration into the snare lately in my mixes. I keep learning as I go along.

Thanks Lynn - yeah I like TH-U.  I picked up Positive Grid's Bias FX recently on sale, and that sounds pretty good as well, but in this one I used TH-U.
