    Sexy Sadie...Beatles cover.

    Did everything but the drums for this a few weeks ago. I just bought a new snare, so I did the drum track this afternoon. I'm still trying to dial in the new snare, so it might be a little off. Sometimes it sounds great to me, sometimes it sounds boxy, still getting used to it.

    This is a Beatles cover. Let me know how it sounds so far.

    Thanx

    Sounds good Rami....I'm still hearing a little clipping on the piano in the beginning though dude....maybe it's on my end???

    If you want me to be really, really picky, I'd say give the leslie guitar just a little more high end, but that's just being picky...

    Man, your vocals are really good, everything is really, but your vocals are really good....

    New snare sounds good too man, seems (to me) it's got a little more "woody" sound compared to the drum track you gave me, but this one's in a mix too, so I may be way off....

    Good job man!!!

    It's a tight, bright snare. Sharp transient. I think it's nice for this tune but I wouldn't rely on it to drive a punchier song.
    I like the kick on this one.
    I can hear some clipping on the piano as well.

    Really good imitation of the original lead tone around 2:10.

    Might be, because someone else thought they heard it clipping when I posted it a few weeks ago. I'm not sure how it would be clipping, since it's coming in at WAY below 0db. But it might just be in the sound itself.

    Nothing wrong with being picky. I have no idea how to get a good Beatles type leslie sound, and I think I forgot to keep working on it once I got the new snare. So it might need more attention after all.

    Man, your vocals are really good, everything is really, but your vocals are really good....
    Thanx buddy. I have to say that this is a comfortable, easy song to sing for me.

    Great. I can probably still work on it a bit. If this was an original, I'm sure I would have spent way more time on the snare, the Leslie guitar, etc....I like using covers to try new things or record new toys. I'm sure I can get more out of this snare, and I will as time goes on.

    Thanx dude. I really appreciate that.

    Thanx man. I actually mic'd the bottom of the sanre and turned up the bottom mic more than I usually would just for this tune. If you listen to the original, it almost sounds like they only mic'd it from the bottom. It's also a very sharp sound. When I mute my bottom mic, it actually sounds like a sound I would use more often.

    That clipping on the piano is really puzzling me. Mainly because I don't hear it, but also because I know I'm not clipping on the recording. There's obviously something in the sound that's giving the impression of clipping.

    at 0:04 when you hit the chord real hard, I can undeniably hear it go kzzzk. Before that it's a bit subtle.

    I first thought that it might be my system when you posted a version of this in that snare thread but now I'm on a different system in a different country and I can still hear it.

    Oh, don't get me wrong. I believe you guys. I just don't hear it. I can try another patch no problem. Like I said, it's not actually clipping, it's impossible. But the sound itself might just have that quality to it.

    Could be the culprit Rami...I've noticed a lot of stuff sounds weird with these things at times, I've got some drum samples that have a weirdness to them like that.....

    I wouldn't sweat it too much dude...Meant to tell you, I'm listening in 'phones too, so I hear just about everything...

    Is this why you were looking for leslie effect? Great version of this song. I too hear the buzziness of the intro keyboard. A good, tight, performance, instrumentally and vocally.

    Yes, the Leslie I was looking for in that thread was for this tune. How is it? Lacking some brightness?

    Thanx a lot Gecko.
