Can't Sell Your Soul

Recommended Posts

Here is something a little different than what I normally do. I might make more like this in the future. I enjoyed the music and midi programming in this. A few tempo changes as the tempo slightly increases. Modo bass, UJAM Iron 2, Addictive drums 2, Air Vaccum for the solos. I used a few libs in Kontakt for the effects at the beginning and end. Mastered in TRacks. I used a stereo spreader and Sunset sound studio reverb as buses. I ran my voice through an Eventide Harmonizer plugin to get different effects. The pic I chose is chopped here. Not sure why, so it looks a little odd.

That intro is something! I'd fade it in a bit. What's your overall level here (LUFS)?

Tim goes all ELP?

It's a bit over the edge in LUFS.

I'll fade the intro and maybe pull the total down. Thanks for pointing it out. I was concerned it might not be loud enough.

I am slow today. Not sure what ELP is?

Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer. Instrumentation reminded me of ELP, not sure on the vocal style...

As someone said to me re Pulsar it is Prog writing next. Not sure what prog writing is I think it is when you use more than three chords.

Nice as ever @Tim Smith

Thanks for comments all. 

I had planned to maybe take everything up to a different key but I didn't have the time. Occasionally playing a real bass helps me to hear a groove.

Tim, this is a gem!  I imagine that it is a fun song to mix, having so much on your palette.  I like the way you used Addictive Drums on this to give the song that deep undercurrent that is so cool.  Your creativity is off the charts!

Definitely a bit different, to say the least. And it reminded me a bit of ELP as well!!

It does sound a bit over compressed to me, otherwise all good. Cool Stuff
