Hi All,

Here's a new song call "Autumn Coming Down" - created in BIAB w/RT.

Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy it.

Bob

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=9917822

The leaves are blowing round in the alley
Birds headed south for the rally
Count ‘em off and take a tally
Flying past the moon
She’s looking back on a life she found
Returning to a familiar town
And getting ready for autumn coming down

Daddy he was a man of music
Give him a verse and he’ll use it
Playing his guitar just to prove it
Remembering the words
Cigarette butt on the hard cold ground
The night has quietly come unwound
Smoke is rising and autumn’s coming down

See the clouds just drifting by
What’s behind them way up high?
It’s all the summers
And times gone by
That’ll live forever
In the memories of the mind

Now when the night is long
His spirit comes along
She knows she’s not alone
Safe within his heart
Piano bench and an old LeMans
Hands in his pockets and half a frown
He’s keeping watch with autumn coming down

Hi Bob,enjoyed the song but the lyric which was really well thought out could have been a poem.I like you overall sound listening to it through my nearfield studio monitors.Perhaps you would pm me with how and what you used to get that nice reverb sound on your vocal and the overall mix of the song.Enjoyed it.Thanks Frankie

Frankie, thanks very much for the kind words.

For the overall sound, I exported the finished track from BIAB into my Tascam DP-008 digital recorder. From there, I record the vocals and perform the final mix. For the vocals in this song, I doubled some of the parts (end of each verse and bridge) and then added a touch of reverb from the Tascam (Hall 1). I also used a little reverb on the instrumental track as well - just to fill it out a bit.

Bob

Frankie, thanks again. You should be able to get some great results with the vs-880 - that's a great machine.

Hello my friend,

I was wondering if you could help me? I just got the TASCAM DP-008 to add vocals to my BIAB songs. I am pretty new to both BIAB and the DP-008 and don't know how to move the finished BIAB song to the DP-008 so I can then add vocals on to another track. Could I get some advice?

Thanks in advance!

James

Hi James,

Wow! This is an old thread! LOL!

I no longer use the DP-008 and have transitioned to a Mac and GarageBand. The easiest way to get your BIAB track into the Tascam is to use your line-out jack on the PC (usually the headphone jack) and go straight into the DP-008 line-in and record the track. Just watch your levels on the Tascam and make sure you don't peak the lights into the red - I would usually set the levels on the Tascam around 1 for recording the BIAB track and set the level on the PC line-out at a decent volume level.

You'll need to play around with it a bit to get the desired sound you want.

Hope this helps.

Bob

I must have missed this the first time around.

I’m sure glad I caught it this time.

Another first class production from rsdean.

Two thumbs up.
