My first C6 Project
Hi there people
Ok it is not entirely finished but it is getting there. I consider it about 70% done at this point.
Norwegian pop/rock with verses in 5/8 and choruses in 4/4… anybody of you up for having a listen to something like this, hehe?
This is a track from my former vocalist Håkons upcoming cd.
It’s his song and my arr.
It’s called “Heksedans” or “witch dance” in English and you can get it here:
This was fun to do because of the odd beats here and there.
Since it is going to be released on cd, I’d love some pointers on the mix.
Bd too high or low, bass guitar too prominent, too much high end etc…
It is supposed to be traditionally mixed IOW like a 5 piece band in a studio, not too many frills just good sound and performances.
Main vocals have no autotune things whatsoever, the backing vocals has some mild auto tune here and there. All vocals by Håkon, the rest by me.
Mic was ADK Hamburg. Eq and comp were Sonalksis, reverb: Redline reverb
All vocals were done in approx 1.5 hours.
Guitars were the new C6 amp thing from Steiny. The 50w plexi used for overdrive and the vox emu for the clean parts
Acoustic guitar intro thing: Håkons Seagull acoustic guitar plugged in and run through 2 fabfilters in series followed by Waves supertap 2 to make it less like a normal ac guitar LOL
Bass: Amplitube 2
Keys: Halionsonic SE
Drums: Superior Drummer Avatar kit + some stylus rmx loops
90% programmed by me
Pre mastering: Waves and PsP plugins
Oh I almost forgot…
My Klipsch promedia 2.1 speakers broke down some weeks ago so I have bought new monitoring equipment.
Nothing fancy but very much better especially in the mid tone area. More revealing so to speak, hehe
The new gear:
Mordaunt Short 10i speakers:
Denon Stereo Amp:
Hope it reflects in the production
Please lend an ear and let us know how the song sounds this far.
All the best, Kim & Håkon
