Glorious Unknown Collab.

Here's one that needs some filling out.  For sure needs some percussion and bass, maybe some other filler items.  Go ahead and add what you think fits. 
The song tempo is 134.  Key is A flat.  All stems line up at 1 1 1 1.

Here's a rough mix of what I have so far: http://www.box.net/shared/static/plr9qnoe4b.mp3

Here's a zipped file of the raw stems: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=NDM63GRA

Have fun!

Sweet song man. I'll give this a shot sometime this weekend. Sounds like a cool song to collaborate with.

How would you feel about some straight rock drums? I think it could work, and especially have some ideas of what to do as the song builds up a bit before the end. I'm not much of a drummer (i.e. can't do crazy metal/double kick or anything fancy like that) but I think I could knock out a set of drum tracks (Kick, Snare and OH's) that would be a good accent to this tune. Let me know if you're interested, and I'll try and get something on tape for ya this weekend.

I'm not a drummer and honestly don't know what kind of drums this song needs.  This site is all about collaboration, experimentation, and discoveration (huh?).  Anyway, anyone is welcome to take a ... (read more)

Hi,

When  I set my tempo to 134... it does not line up.

I set to 123 for the beginning part, and 3/4 meter, then it starts to make sense.
But then it does not, at the "Flood the banks inward" vocal it goes up in tempo, and then it goes into 134 bpm, in 3/4 time.
There was a start after bar 32, which was not on a downbeat... so I increased the space a little there.

Cheers

Here's a picture of what it looks like on the DAW :

Nick, thanks for clearing that up.

Hi,

Here's a very rough mix, with the added small space between bar 34-35... so you can compare to what you had. Let me know if this is ok.
The Meter is 3/4 all the way through.

Nick,

Sounds good.  I did notice on the first word "sky" your de-esser chopped off the s completely, so it sounds like "ky open wide".  Thanks for sorting out the timing.  I have yet to learn how to change tempo mid song in Logic, but I'll figure it out.

OK, I got the tempo thing figured out.  I've attached a screen shot of what it now looks like.  Nick, is this about what you have?

Also, I noticed that synth R tail got chopped off in the bounce, so I bounced a new one here: http://www.box.net/shared/static/hdof7phxue.zip

Hi Guitar Zero,
Yes, that is what I have. This works better for anyone using the DAW tempo bars. Thanks for uploading that synth again.
Cheers

I have been busy too... I did try some drums, and will try a few other things over the weekend. This week I'm babysitting my 4yr old, who has a nice tummy virus.

Yes its a little muddy but not too bassy.

OK thanks.  And thanks for putting together an "up to now" mix.  Seems to be taking shape nicely.

The bass was tracked warm & smooth thru an original LA-2A. As you said it may be a problem with your low frequency response in your new room or maybe just a personal taste eq issue.
