I found another one of those Remix Contests this week... seems most people submit Rave/Club type entries - not my cup-o-tea honestly. So, for this one I tried to work up a bit of that famous Muscle Shoals sound - I don't think I got there but it is a lot different than the original artists track. For your amusement ;-)

Citizens - Made Alive (Shaved Shoals Remix)

Everything except the vocals was done in Real Band;

Trap: RD Blues Rock Even ^1
Bass: RT 909 Elec Blues Pop
Guit: RT 1718 E.Rhythm Texas Blues (Brent)
H-B3: RT 673 Hammond B3 (BB Background)
EPno: RT 2157 Vintage Funky Groove
TSax: RT 403 Tenor Motown 60's...

Well, there you have it... a hot mess in some areas. ;-)

Here's a link to the Original composition for comparison;

Cheers!
Don

Hey Don, you did a good job here. Good choice of instruments and a good mix.

Thumbs up, I love the variety of music folks are doing with BIAB.

I like your version much, much more than the original.

Thanks for the feedback! I've submitted it as-is. While I don't think the production value is quite the same as the original I'm still amazed every day about how much we can accomplish with just BIAB & RB.

I know lot's of folks are pining for 64-bit DAW's and plug-ins and oodles of memory... I guess I just don't need them for most of what I'm trying to accomplish as a Producer / Arranger. Most of my RB mixes are almost totally dry anyway.

I suppose if I were a better player trying to improve my chops or were looking to PG for Pro-Tools type functionality I'd have a beef. IMO, they have a perfect niche as-is... why complicate a fairly robust tool with bolt-ons most of us will use infrequently, if at all?

Again, thanks for the feedback, yielding the soapbox ;-)

Cheers,

Don
