Hi All,

Here's something new - this is called Echo.

Thanks for listening!

Hi Bob,

Very well done with this song I liked it a lot.

Please don't take offence with my next question as it's meant for my education.

Which type of plugin for vocals do you use, as your vocals from past to present have a marked difference in presentation.

Regards

George

George,

Thanks for listening and commenting. Are my vocals better or worse? LOL! smile Actually, my setup has not changed that much over the past few years - I use a Blue Yeti Pro mic for all my vocals. I record them straight into GarageBand and then apply an Ozone layer to the overall song when finished. I'm pretty simple about the engineering aspect of things.

Let me know if that helps.

Bob

Robert,

I liked this quite a bit! It fits your customary delivery that includes the nicely formatted page and crystal clear mix!

I especially like the way you structure your lyrics in recurring patterns:
"I was looking..."
"I was peering..."
"I was walking..."
"I was reading..."

"There are things..."
"there are times..."
"There are nights..."

"I can see..."
"I can speak..."

It takes effort to take an idea then build all that symmetry in, but in my opinion, the final effect is so much more polished when the song writer does it!

Polish is what you do, Robert! On this forum you are the king of presentation!

You really nail these introspective
type tunes by striking a balance
that is both personal and yet
accessible to the listener. That's
not an easy sweet spot to land
on but you seem to always manage
it.

And this song both lyrically, vocally,
and production wise is no exception
to the above.

Both us enjoyed it!

J&B

Exactly! Bob, you have pretty much perfected this style and just waiting for life's experiences to provide new subject matter. Thanks for sharing.

"I can speak about tomorrow
In some "sorta kinda" way
But I stumble through the words
And all the noise remains
Like an echo going round the room"

I really like that, Bob.

And this...
"I was reading an old letter
In the things you left behind
I was looking for something
I would clearly never find
I can see the paper fading
In the shadow of your pen
And I'm on the second page
So I may just start again
Like an echo going round the room"

A good write...

Terrific production and mix. Just the right build for an acoustic ensemble. Solid vocal.

Very enjoyable. Very solid.
