This one started as a more electronic composition, but slowly “evolved” to something a bit different. But I hope some might like it.
Here is the MP3 and you can read more about it in its blog entry.
But basically, it was sequenced, recorded, and mixed in Ardour, the synths are Diva and Yoshimi, drums are DrumGizmo (using CrocellKit), and the guitar was the HX Stomp for cleans and tamgamp for solo parts. The plugins used were mostly LSP, x42, OvertoneDSP, and u-he.
Thanks, Glen, for the kind words and the plug! I really appreciate it!
Thank you very much, Paul! I cannot thank you (and the rest of the developers) enough for your contributions. This would not be possible without Ardour.
For some context, I had no bands for the longest time (I swear someone put a curse on me!) and missed it greatly. Then, I found Michal Oswald’s videos Audio Production with Muse and Ardour. After watching those I thought: “Hey, I could do that with my own songs!”.
Recording my own music on my own made a huge difference for me. It allowed me to still play and write, and it felt great! This would not have happened if I hadn’t found Ardour. It really had an immensely positive impact on my life.
Wow ! yes indeed quite a professional grade production ! That sounds terrific ! And the song itself is great !
Thanks for the blog entry, it’s nice to read how you achieved this result, what tools were used.
I’m impressed (and jealous ) by the sound you managed to get out of the CrocelKit !
Well done, you can be proud !
I’m off to listen to your other pieces, the Chick Corea cover caught my eye
Thanks for listening and for the kind words! I still struggle quite a bit with mixing, but I think it is slowly getting better. I have just listened to some of my older recordings and fell very disappointed about how they sound… I guess I just need to keep practicing and at some point remix my older ones.
I hope you like it! It was fun making that one. A lot of credit goes to the person who made the original MIDI. I changed it a lot, but I don’t think I could have done it all myself!
