    My first crack at the grinder

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I just wanted to share a little something of what's new on my end.

    I'm currently working with a band called "Alpha Beta Base". Interesting sound, I must say.


    I had a chance to post an unmastered version of a song called, "Push Me". Give the guys props, they have worked really hard!


    If you want to have a listen, let me know what you think. Easy, I'm a bleeder!


    just kidding. Enjoy.

    Sounds like a good and punchy mix man. Not much to say, as it sounds really good here. Nice performance, and it came out well.

    Thanks man ...


    I guess at this point I'm just probably thinking of ways to really get these vocals going a bit more...


    can't really think of anything for the moment. Probably reworking the lyrics a bit seems to be some kind of option. Any ideas are always welcome!

    Hey Lee,

    Sounds great on my work pc speakers!
    Very clear and each instrument distinguishable, I like the guitar tone, but I think the main mix drops down in volume too much when the vocals enter!....or is it the vocals too up front for the rest of the mix!..........That is purely a levels issue!

    I love the synth sounds of strings!

    The vocals definitely come more alive as the song progresses!

    I really like this tune Lee, I am going to download and play on my home stereo!

    Nice work!....Thanx for sharing!

    oh most definitly. I've gotten that alot since I started showing the mix. Probably why I got so into ABB in the first place.

    Very cool, the vox are particularly good. Nothing for me to nitpick here, its a good mix and a good band. Nice stereo effects. I would of course use real string players.... but the string thing sounds good. Well done and props to the band.

    hehe!


    about the vocals, I think that will probably settle a bit better once we get to mastering.

    I of course wish I had the ability to do it myself, but I think that parts far beyond my equipment and knowledge. I feel more useful as a track/mix engineer, anyway.


    Oh, plus hey....I activated the download, so you can definitly have at it.

    Kind words guys







    By the way, did anyone catch the reference? Alpha Beta Base is a reference from a movie which happens to be Neds (drummer) favorite movie. One of mine as well.


    I'll give you a hint,


    "This is Buck Burdock, calling from Alpha Beta Base"

    "Who's Buck Burdock, Ted?"

    Oh you don't know how bad I wanted that! It just came out too expensive.

    Next time around, I definitly am fighting for real strings. (cough cough)

    I personally am a huge fan of live string ensembles, but we ended up settling with the reason strings.


    The original wasn't supposed to have strings, but I started fiddling around one night with the sounds and out came that part. Showed it to the band the next day and they came up with that Zepplin "string battle" thing.


    Kinda cool how that allowed us to rewrite the second verse of the song.

    WARNING WARNING......NON GENERIC GUITAR SOUND
    Nice touches on the periphery: the psych guitar that noodled in the L speaker for a few moments at 1.30, the light percussive touches in the right.
    What did you use for the guitar sounds? Just far enough away from generic to sound meaty yet mighty.
    Some of the lyric phrasing is a little stilted around 1.50+.
    The B/vox sit nicely.
    The string wars would'v been nice real. Can't have it all - BUT....
    The line has a very eastern feel - something that The Tea Party do so well.
    Well done in the recording & pretty good work in the playing too. It all hangs together like it belongs.
    Cheers
