A little something different…
This my own choral arrangement and recording of “O Danny Boy”. Currently working on a video for it. Here are some details:
It was made in Cubase 6.5 using a Sure SM27 Mic and a Steinberg MR816CSX Interface.
The arrangement was composed in Sibelius
I performed all the vocals.
I compressed the vocals on the way in via the MR816. No other compression was used other than some bus compression in the mastering phase.
The song is performed a capella.
Other plugins were minimal, only using Fabfilter’s Pro-Q and Pro-DS, (Fabfilter Pro-L, and Native Instruments Solid Bus Comp were used for mastering)
There are 24 independent vocal tracks plus a soloist (no copying, each track is a unique recording).
Syncing was accomplished with a conducting video that I made prior to recording.
A download of the 160KB mp3 is available for those who don’t want to suffer through soundcloud’s compression.
