I Really Do Love You org/Yamaha PSRE403/Big Baby Taylor/SP1 mic/Cl1 interface/MC5

Post by The Cracks » Sat Aug 17, 2019 6:23 pm

This song I started maybe a month or so ago by recording the basic piano track and jibberish lyrics. I finished it up today by writing and recording real lyrics, adding some additional instruments, and mixing it. It is a song that I imagine could be played at the end of a movie. I wanted to keep it simple, stark, and no longer than three minutes.

The way I recorded it was:

I played my keyboard (PSRE403) into Mixcraft 5 via Cl1 interface
I played my Big Baby acoustic guitar into the SP1 mic and recorded it into Mixcraft 5 via Cl1 interface
I played strings on my keyboard (PSRE403) into Mixcraft 5 via Cl1 interface
I sang both vocal tracks into the SP1 mic and recorded it into Mixcraft 5 via Cl1 interface

Here is:

You write some really good stuff. That woe filled tone in your voice is so sonorous massaging the lyrics the way you do, excellent! I gave it a few listens. Really good!

Wow Sean! You really nailed this one. You really created an atmosphere of weariness with your voice and the slow tempo. The second verse is very creative. Good stuff! Glenn

I don't know if it is but it certainly feels and sounds heartfelt.

Effective use of words. A simple message, simply delivered.

Cheers

Dick

Thank you so much Roy, Glenn, and Dick.

It is heartfelt but not because it pertains to anything happening in my life now. The music created the mood.

I was afraid one of the lines in the second verse was sung a little behind the beat (because I missed a word), so I recorded the second verse again. The line was about the mother. I missed the word "has". It's funny how one word can throw off the beat. The correct line is "Even you own mother has found grounds to sue". :noway: I brought the strings up in the mix too.

Thanks again.
