Hi everyone. This is a funky soul song I did several months ago, and I've just finished. I started the song in BIAB and did the structure there (BIAB is soooo great for this kind of job). I liked so much a couple of tracks (electric piano and tenor sax) that I used them in the final mix, with a little bit editing here and there. Main drums were programmed, and sound through Addictive Drums. I programmed a couple of electronic and percussion loops too, and bass and guitars -and of course vocals- are real. Everything was mixed with Reaper, the mix is still work in progress, so any suggestion welcomed!

Here's the link, I Hope you like it.

This is a hot rod song and a good mix to my ears -- well done!!

P.S. I thought the sax sounded a little "under-powered" from 2:44 - 3:07, but after that it sounded great!
At 5:09, it might be about a minute too long.

No suggestions. It sounds pretty well near perfect to me. Stunning in fact.
I LOVED the slinky key changes - wow! The vocal is beautiful - I assume your wife is a professional singer? She'd give Lisa Stansfield a run for her money.
Excellent song, arrangement and mix. And those key changes...woooh....!

Ok, put a gun to my head and I'd ask for the drums to be louder, but that's just me.

I love R&B / Funk tunes and this is outstanding Cerio. Sounds like you hired studio musicians to create this. If it is all Biab, you sure know how to get what you want out of it. Impressive indeed !!

Yes yes yes to all the above. This is sheer class. Love everything about it. I love this kinda stuff. Just wish I could write it!

The vocal is amazing. Just sooo good.

I've been playing this to all my friends and they all love it too!


Looking forward to your next post with eager anticipation.

Good luck with it!

Martin

Really liked the spacing of the vox

The overall feel of this piece is very evocative

Vox are outstanding – soulful and sincere. Loved the rap section too!

Sometimes there are 2 reps of some sections when maybe 1 would have been enough which results in the whole thing being maybe a little long

Also , the drum sound maybe a little over aggressive

Overall, this is big league stuff Cerio. Well done to both of you!
