You Lied to Me

I thought to try something completely different ...

40's Big Band

I used BIAB for most of the Horn sounds, but I couldn't get
a good solo clarinet from BIAB. So I used VST Helicon Sonic to play the first part of the solo, and blended in a BIAB clarinet solo for the second half, it worked!

Used Reason for DAW, vocals, and extra strings and sounds, mastered in Ozone 6

Hi, Elliot.

This is one of those songs where, as soon as you started singing, I knew I was going to really like it.

And you did not disappoint.

Love the lyrics, arrangements, and melody. Great ending. Clever hack for the clarinet solo!

The only thing it's missing is a "soft shoe" break. wink

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

I like the intimacy of the dry vocal.

I'd suggest it needs some balancing in the mix.
