November 25, 2019  -  User Showcase Song - The Narcissist's Wife

Here's a song built from the ground up with BIAB.

Mixed and augmented in Reaper. click here to listen

1st guitar as played by my co-writer from 76 - Eric Drabwell... click here to listen

2nd BIAB CELLO solo... click here to listen

I used two lots of compression as well as overdrive on the cello to help it cut through a thick mix.

I started with a couple of chord progressions and the lyrics, (rejected by a couple of potential users because of the theme).
Chord sequence placed in BIAB and a full arrangement built in there.
I then, slowly, replaced the BIAB guitars & bass with my own playing to get the sounds/riffs I wanted.
Stephen accepted the challenge.
The vocals have been manually de-essed using a pre-fx volume envelope. In the choruses I opted for a send parallel vocal track set up with overdrive and a flanger & blended with the original to give the vocals a boost & some grit.
Vantage Bass, Fender Squire Bullet Mustang, Fender 12 string acoustic, super cheap spring reverb pedal and some handy Marshall Cabinet impulse responses helped liven things a little. I also double tracked the arpeggio guitar - one set DI & the other mic'd amp.
BIAB Real Drums, organ & Ahhs remain from the build process.
I HOPE to have a real solo by next week.
