I just wrapped up a new track this weekend- First project using Ardour 6! Hope you enjoy
Holy Porcupine Tree Batman! Is that Steven Wilson on guitar?
Enjoyed the details and overall vibe of this a lot.
Thanks, Robin! - I am humbled by the Steven Wilson comparison. This time, I allowed myself to go out on a limb more than usual… I am very glad that you enjoyed it!
Thanks JD! I am humbled by the Robin comparison!
Nice work! Enjoy I did!
Great mix and mood, love that fuzz on the lead guitar and the quasi middle-eastern scale stuff you were playing. (Sorry I don’t know anything about modes and all that stuff).
Thanks, GMaq! Glad you enjoyed it. The fuzz tone is my ProCo Rat pedal, which is quickly becoming my favorite distortion pedal For the scale, I stuck mostly to the E Phrygian mode (except for some dissonant G#s in the beginning).
Rat… nice pedal, never had one but almost bought one a few times, maybe you’ve pushed me over the edge…
I’m curious about what you did for the drums?
heh - When I was a teenager (90s) my friends and I used to disparage the Rat for being too “heavy metal”. Then, later in life, I heard Dave Gilmour sometimes used them for smaller rigs and gave it a second look.
For the drums I used the x42 Black Pearl multi-out plugin. I routed the drums, snare and toms to a parallel compression bus with Calf Compressor I added a little delay to make to give it an extra rhythmic ambience. Also ran everything through AirWindows’ DrumSlam plugin and added reverb via Calf Reverb.
I thought that was the Black Pearl, you’ve put it to good use, nice work! We’ll be revisiting all of the AVL Drumkits and adding a new small Bop kit and a percussion set in the near future…
Awesome - Those are some great plugins and I look forward to the Bop kit
