Sinking 2011 release candidate 1
I am in the process of doing my first solo cd ever (after doing numerous albums for other artists and playing in diverse “whorebands”) and this is the second song I’ve done for that cd. The first was “Altered State” from some months back.
Get it here:
I am posting this to get some input on the mix.
I’ll do some more “whizbang” on vocals later (melodyne, delay efx etc)
Vocal dist at 5.15 thanks to my cheap Behringer mixer LOL.
The mic/preamp/tube tech compressor is not distorting neither is the signal going out from the behringer mixer, the max signal coming into Cubase was -1 db so here we have a classic example of the mixing board saying “I’ve had enough it’s too hot even though it isn’t” hehe
As I said this is a release candidate and it was a hard one to do for Håkon.
John Reggs from NY did the 2003 original and he is a tough man to beat to say the least.
But I think Håkon pulled it off just fine adding a lot of himself to the song.
We will fix a couple of vocal lines manually (it means redoing it for real, hehe) the rest I’ll fix in melodyne. So… no vocal fix at all on this version, just the best takes glued together.
Vocals: Neumann U67 to Behringer Ultravoice to Tubetech lca2b.
Frog if this does not sound good nothing does, hehe
Guitars: Fender USA hss (humbucker, single coil, single coil) strat+ (ash body and all the trimmings, hehe) going into amplifikation crème plugin
All overdrive sounds from this plugin, the clean guitar on the verses from amplitube fender.
Bass: Trilogy on the verses, the rest is me on a real bass through At3
Drums: Superior Drummer 2 Allaire kit with one extra tom and two extra cymbals.
Synths: Hypersonic 2
Please, let me know what you think of the sound so far….
