I got this song, posted it a while ago called ‘turn around’ with Simone on vocals.
I just can’t get it to work, the mix I mean. I normally make electronic music but in this one I use a sampled piano.
It’s the steinway in garritan’s personal orchestra. And to be honest, it sounds just not good enough.
Not really a surprise, the package cost 169,- 3 years back and it includes a whole orchestra, brass, violins, orchestral drums, pipe organ, piano’s etc.
So I can’t really expect the best but…
Is there a fellow cubase user outthere with a great piano library like vienna or whatever that wants to help me out.
I send the midi file and then you send me a rendered version back so I can mix it in the song.
Here’s the mix so far:
I used a side chain to hide the piano behind the vocals, I did that a bit to harsch but the piano sounds so thick and cheap, I couldn’t find another solution. I totally pulled down all mids, all lows used 3 compressors and a pultec and cambridge EQ, but polish a turd, it still is a turd or how do you guys say that in english
(In holland we say, give a monkey a golden ring, it still will be an ugly thing)
If you want me to do something in return, program drums, mix or master something, I will gladly help you out!
