Hi all.

It's been a while since I managed to find time post a song, but I discovered this one sitting on my computer from a while back, just waiting for a mix. It's so old that the backing vocals were still done by Ellie and Jessie and they've been at university for over a year now. Not quite sure what genre this fits into, so judge for yourselves. There's an effect which I haven't used for years, but I thought it might be appropriate for my vocal on this track. It uses a vocoder, but using white noise instead of a synth as the carrier, with the voice as the modulator. I've kept it fairly subtle and it sounds a bit like stereo phasing.

Hey, there's actually some RTs in there for a change -
RT 494: Trumpet Jazz Ballad
RealDrums: Hip-Hop

Anyway, here it is.

SWEET DREAMS
Every time I see your face
I find myself
Floating in outer space
And every time I hear your voice
I'm drawn in
It seems like I don't have no choice
I get sweet dreams floating round my head.

Some say, "Is it right
To waste your time
Dreaming both day and night?"
But I think that it's so good
It's just fine
That it works out the way it should
I get sweet dreams floating round my head.

As usual, many thanks to everyone who has the time to listen.

Cheers, ROG.

Very, very cool ROG!!! Heard a little Petty, little Floyd, and a trumpet part I never would have thought of trying which worked perfectly. Love the trashy drum vibe you got. Really great all the way around!! Take care. Greg

Rock. That covers a wide area musically.

Cool tune. The vocal FX works. Not in your face, just a touch.

Loved the breakdown to the trumpet.

Nice guitar playing.

I couldn't help thinking of Annie Lennox as I listened.

ROG,

That might be my favorite of yours!

Good opening guitars. The vocal effect works really well! The girls BGVs are perfect.

Love that snare sound! The subtle synth stabs are nice! Cool trumpet...

Gorgeous guitar lead!

The mix is a real stand-out!

REALLY enjoyed this!!!

Sounds like something Ian Hunter might be singing from back in the Mott the Hoople days (ha, ha). Sounds like a good old gem that you mixed up just right. Are the girls still doing music?

Good one. Nice trumpet part and lead work!

ROG, You've done it again. This is a killer track. I never thought the trumpet would work but it does. Good thinking outside the box on that call. Great vocals both lead and bg. Super guitar playing. The mix is outstanding with the bass occupying a great spot sonically. Rock on Professor!!! Tom

Hi ROG,

Well, we really dig this vocal effect!
Backing vocals are great too.
The song has got a very nice drive to it.
We also like that subtle chorus guitar. The 494 RT is a good choice for the solo, especially followed by that great guitar solo!

My oldest son snarkily said it was the worst Eurythmics cover he's ever heard. laugh

I enjoyed the song, and loved the guitar solo.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Great sounding track! As already said it has a great groove going on with the rhythm section. The trumpet is sweet and I love that guitar solo. Cool vocal effect too.

ROG,
Glad you pull this one out of the files. Cool stuff in here. The effects are awesome. I loved your guitar solo and the trumpet solo as well.

Good one Rog. A little spooky and slinky and the trumpet sounded pink floydish.
Very good fun. Cheers.
