Hi Robert,

Pleased add "+1" to all the above. I closed my eyes, sat back and just listened. There are some very powerful moments in these words and music. Floyd really has the knack for getting the best out of his BIABettes!

All the best,
Noel

I hope that Robert doesn't mind me "hi-jacking" his thread for a moment.

If you haven't taken the time to listen to this song you need to.
It is a beautiful, powerful bit of songwriting.

It was part of Robert's FAWN efforts. I really liked it the first time I heard it.
Josie commented as well that it was one of her favorites from Robert.
From the opening strains of the piano, I was hoping there was a gospel choir ready to join in.
But there was not. So I asked Robert if he would mind me trying to add one.
He graciously agreed to allow me that opportunity. And sent me a copy of the song.

Since Josie asked "how did you get the choir sound?" - I thought a brief
description might be helpful to someone....

The "Choir" is nothing more than me singing a couple of times and then
processing that in RB using the TC Helicon plugin (provided by PGMusic!).
I loaded Robert's song in a DAW and sang along with it twice.
Once normally and once in a falsetto - both times, the same melody
that Robert sang (no harmonies).
I loaded Robert SGU file into RB and then loaded the 1st vocal I had done.
And then processed that with the Audio Harmony plugin.
Choosing "1 down, 3 up", selecting the Gospel setting under each voice,
and "medium choir" at the bottom.
That generated 12 harmonies. I saved each of those to a folder - using the mpg
option and allowing it to default to what comes up - a very low resolution.
(figured with a bunch of voices, the quality would not matter and it would save some space -
and to use any other resolution that many times is a pain,
because it returns to the low res every time)
I then did the same with the falsetto track.
Loaded all those (24 generated voices along with my originals)
in the DAW panned them all over the place, added a reverb to
the master out and....
Viola! Choir!

I mixed all those voices to one track ("the choir") to mix with Robert's
original track rather than have to work with them individually.

Now... go listen to Robert's song. It is STRONG - even without the choir.

Sorry I missed this one the first go round, but now that I hear the choir effect and what went into recording it I am glad I waited.

Robert can write with the best of them and when you get a pro like Floyd to collaborate you have to come up with a winner.

Later,

Nice indeed! Great collaboration. Reading how the choir was created makes me realize how little of the power of all this software I use. As an old dog these new tricks seem to be about a step or two ahead of me.
