Thanks for the support. I initially wanted that echo-ey, booming tom sound, too. We tried a bunch of different drums and mixes and decided the more resonant sounds tended to muddy things up. (And artistically decided the flat drums had more of a "highway" sound.)
And yes, Woodman and everyone else, there's still much to be done on the vocal eq. Don't know why this one is so hard. I think I'll just go back to flat and start again.
The "lead" guitar in the break is more a noisemaker. I think the parts are there, just have to figure out what it all means.
It's hard to sort out which drum is which...there are 9 percussion takes. I'm going through with headphones searching for conflicts.
I did revisit the bass and brought it up a bit. There's not much low end on it because it was getting lost.
I'll repost when it gets close to finished.
This was recorded in GarageBand, mixed in Logic. The vocal mic is a JoeMeek JM48. Guitars are recorded with a 57's, (the "affected" rhythm guitar is part of the scratch track, it'll probably be recut.)
Thanks again for taking the time to listen and comment. It's really great having all these ears on this thing.
We've got really strong songs and a wonderful band. I'm so afraid of screwing this up.
And for something totally different, Bluebirds
. It's still missing parts but a friend wanted to hear the progress on it.
