And He'll Play His Rock and Roll (All Night Long), Zoom R8, original rough early draft, Rock

Post by Beatnick » Fri Sep 06, 2019 5:29 am

This is an early rough cut I did yesterday. I've been thinking about my early days, singing into a cheap tape recorder at my mother's piano a lot lately. I finally rearranged things so I have my keyboard going into one channel and a mic in another, so it's very similar to back then and getting me back to the basics a bit. This is one of those older songs from 88. Right now it's just vocal, keyboard, bass and a very basic drum beat. Most everything was done through the Zoom R8, except I ran the bass through the Zoom G3n. I'm rearranging again because I prefer to do everything through the R8. I'll still keep it where I can play keyboard and sing, but I'll have to switch jacks when I want to record bass or guitar. Anyway, I will probably add guitar to this later and remix it. Let me know what you think.

Great foundation to build from. I like the simple foundation of drum track, bass and keyboard. Your vocal is clear for the most part but does need some editing as you noted. I'm looking forward to hearing how this progresses.

Be sure to check out the Bandlab version. I am updating as I go along there. I added an organ track this morning and played with the mix a bit. Hopefully guitar will be next and I'll probably expand the drums some more.

Solid writing and, as Jim said, it's a great foundation.

Maybe it's my ears or the PC speakers I'm listening on at the moment but I couldn't hear an organ on the Bandlab version. It sounds fuller and the bass comes over more but the organ is lost on me.

Cheers

I heard the organ when I mixed it (I was wearing headphones), but I have listened to it a few times since then and it is buried in the mix. I can tell it's there because I know what I am listening for, but I can't really hear it. I think right now the way it is mixed you don't notice it is there, but if it wasn't there you would notice that it's not there. I'll definitely bring it up on the next revision. Hopefully I'll add guitar today. I've got a riff I'm happy with and I'm still playing with it a bit.
