(Krzystof Komeda's) Rosemary's Baby - Electric Guitar Cover

Hello guys. This is my electric guitar cover of Krzystof Komeda's ''Rosemary's Baby'', soundtrack song of popular Roman Polanski's movie.

It was fully created by me, i did physically record, and after that i edited and mixed the guitars, and i recorded the piano  as a virtual instrument.

All these, of course via Cakewalk. It is my first full creation.

I hope you will like it. Thanks in advance.

I haven't seen the movie or heard of this soundtrack piece before, it's pretty neat! I realize the tuning in spots is intentionally sacrificed for creepy effect - but the guitar panned left was a bit flat I think - 1:16 as an example. I really don't know if it matters, might be something to check if it's not your dissonant intention.

A cool listen, thanks!

cheers,

-Tom

Thanks a lot man. What do you mean ''click track''? I am new to Cakewalk and music recording etc hehe. I've known the basics until now.

First of all, if you haven't seen the movie and you like classic horror films, then that is one of best movies out there. A masterpiece, in my opinion.

Now, about the effect - to be honest - i didn't have the purpose to use that specific pitch/fill pedal effect (that makes this dirty strange sound), but when i listened to that, i believed it was the right effect, because it makes the solo a little much ''horrorist'' , like the movie plot etc. In my mind, at least - that was my thought. Of course, it could be cleaner etc, but that's what i did choose. By the way, there is not much gain picked at the amp sim, only the drive pedal gives some - but the pitch does the job.

I have one question guys about output volume. Do you suggest leaving Master volume set at 0, or less at -5db, -10db etc? Do you think my main guitar solo is over-volumed or it's ok? I've left it at 0db, and the rest guitars (clean sounded) are at -9db.  Maybe it would be better to have the main solo for example at -6db and all the other sound some db below? 

So, my main question is which is the best max volume peak you suggest for master volume and buses etc?

P.S. I edited the song and re-uploaded on youtube (and updated the link above), with lower volume levels. To my ears it was too loud, especially the main solo and i adjusted the max peak at -5db, but finally the master volume peaks at -14db. I think it's ok. You can listen the lower volume edition now. Thanks.

Thanks, i think i corrected that to my audio file, but i won't upload the corrected again (because i've already did it before for volume decrease) - so i will leave the previous version on youtube. On that version (my link above) how do you see my master volume level? It's ok? I don't think it needs to be more loud, am i right?
