August 28, 2018 User Showcase Song - Too Little Too Late

I kicked this one off with a rhythm bed and first verse before getting stuck and sending the SEQ file over to Eddie. He upped the tempo a shade, wrote a further two verses and added a bridge. It was obvious that Eddie was gonna do the lead vocal better than I would, so we changed the key a few times and I re-recorded the backing. Somewhere along the line, this resulted in the guitars getting heavier and the track losing it's Pop feel.

TOO LITTLE TOO LATE: https://soundcloud.com/music-prof/too-little-too-late

So, the lead vox is Eddie and I put in the harmony and BVs. There are two rhythm guitar Realtracks - RT362 and RT500 The other guitars and bass are live and the drums are sampled midi. The whole thing, from start to finish, was in Realband.

August 27, 2018 User Showcase Song - We are America

It's been a busy summer and I finally got back into the studio to record our latest song, "We are America." For those of you who love patriot songs, this should be the song for you. If you're not into patriotic songs, I challenge you to listen. The song isn't about how great the USA is but rather how great America is when we stand united as one nation despite our differences. The feeling is real and can be applied to many great nations around the world.

Here's the song link: http://sclk.co/s8771e

August 23, 2018 User Showcase Song - Deciduous love

I sometimes lurk and saw Noel's lyrics but thought that I could never write a song to those.
I occasionally messed with BIAB trying to discover tricks I didn't know and playing with the RTs that I have never used and came across 2708 Autoharp. And so emerged 32 bars of Em which needed lyrics and more chords!
THEN the gibsonator suddenly came back to life, took control and pointed to Noel's lyrics.The analogy of a year being my life arose in my mind. 20 years ago I was 48 ...I was in the Autumn of my life-ish!!! Aah hah Autumn's blade ..... BRILLIANT!!

Noel, you, without knowing, put my thoughts into words in a way that I could never have done. Thank you
A few more chords turned up and then Brent put those thoughts into notes.
This has been ready to post for quite a few weeks but circumstances out of my control stopped me. Here it is at last.

August 22, 2018 User Showcase Song - All There Is

This is a song from last year that I never posted here, Usuing the “Southern Rock” band I was thinking of Tom Petty and the phrase that fit perfectly early on was “hasten down the wind”.
https://kennyleverett.bandcamp.com/track/all-there-is

I knew that wasn’t my original idea but couldn’t remember who came up with it, a little research and I rediscovered a really cool song from Warren Zevon called “Hasten Down the Wind”.
I always intended to re-record this to polish it and make it better, just never got around to it. I don’t have any new songs, haven’t written anything in over seven months… you’re welcome.
Enjoy it, rip it, critic it, Thanks for the listens and comments!

August 09, 2018 User Showcase Song - The Brown Plymouth Arrow

My wife and I, Sandy, lived and met in Laurel , Mississippi. If you watch the show Hometown on HGTV that is it. They have a hamburger stand, called Phillips Drive In, PDI for short, that was originally a dairy queen downtown that was, and is a main focal point. Teenagers would gather in that parking lot and make the circle around the block, Sears parking lot, mcdonalds, burger king and PDI, My wife did have a brown plymouth arrow, and we did make that circle a few times, pretty much a true story.

We used BIAB for everything except the Main Guitar, and vocals HA. Enjoy Cliff

August 08, 2018 User Showcase Song - Angel's Canon

Recently Yamaha has released Vocaloid 5 and I bought an upgrade version of it. In order to get used to the operation of it, I am working on the music production using it very hard now. This song is also one of them.

Pachelbel's canon has been used often as a material of pops since long ago.
I think that the chord progression (I - V - VIm - IIIm - IV - I - IV - V7) is very compatible with the contemporary pops and easy to create familiar melodies with it. I tried making a simple canon based on Pachelbel's Canon this time as well.

August 07, 2018 User Showcase Song - Hamama

It's been a busy summer doing other things, but I have worked on a couple of songs recently, and this is one of them.

https://soundcloud.com/phil-leith/hamama-original

This song came about when a playful little pattern picking lick I found on the guitar (which doesn't appear anywhere in the song, but it did inspire the melody) met a lovely woman from Pakistan last weekend with a personality to match it. She was a force of nature, coming out of her shell. It was fun to watch. Sweet. Pretty. Opinionated. And trying things she'd never tried.

I didn't intend this to be a bluegrass tune. But considering the lick was somewhat bluegrassy to begin with, and the fact that I needed a very playful instrument like a mandolin weaving its way around the song to illustrate her lively personality ... well ... there was nothing for it. Add a fiddle and call it done. I think the conga drums make it a little different, though.

August 03, 2018 User Showcase Song - State Lines

Five years ago this song represented our complete departure from bluegrass (or heavily bluegrass influenced) productions. We had just completed a couple of collabs with floyd jane and he had set us on our new production journey with lots of mix counsel including mastering via Ozone. Thanks mr jane!

Audio only: https://soundcloud.com/mootsman/state-lines
Video: https://youtu.be/CkTtbmXIXjg

Time passes, things change and hopefully we have all grown regarding our production chops so we felt that it was worth revisiting the mix, etc.

We started from scratch with new effects on all tracks and and several completely new tracks. It was originally mixed in GarageBand and we had to move the entire production to Logic Pro X. And the video is also new.

Bluesy country with a hint of jazz, we guess smile

It’s a very simple little 12 bar ditty (lyrically and chord wise) but we hope you like it and always welcome your thoughts and appreciate your time to listen.

Vocal: Janice, Rodes NT1 interfaced to iMac via Scarlett 212 / Nectar 2
Bass RT 482: Acoustic Jazz Ballad / Neutron 2 / Waves Bass Rider
Drums: Nashville Brushes Shuffle / Waves CLA / Neutron 2
Guitar RT 1795: Acoustic Rhythm Dixieland / Neutron 2 / EMT 140 Reverb
Guitar RT 968: Electric Rhythm Country Swing / Neutron 2
Guitar RT 1514: Electric Solo Country
Piano RT 2047: Acoustic Rhythm Country Swing /Neutron 2 / EMT 140 Reverb
Piano RT 1884: Acoustic Solo Country / Neutron 2 / EMT 140 Reverb

Note: All solos and fills were comped from multiple tracks in an attempt to get a bluesy feel out of several country tracks and to make some ev parts play nice with the shuffle feel (or so I hope).

Mix: Logic Pro X
Mastering: Waves Multi-band Compressor and Ozone 8 (Limiter module only)
