    Stoned? Get stoned with this...

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Here is a track. I wrote, played the intruments and recorded it yesterday evening and this afternoon.

    I used a pretty nice mic (the AT 4050) as the OH and vocal mic. On drums I also used an SM57 on kick. I DI'ed the bass and clean guitar parts, and miced my Marshall JCM800 for the distorted parts. I DI'ed the synth.

    How do you like it?

    Definitely a "bud light" song (LOL). I like the vocal harmonies, they remind me of Pink Floyd. Good tune....
    As far as the mix goes (just my .02 FWIW) maybe bring the vocals up, bass guitar down, bring in the rhythm guitar more center.

    I'm not stoned unfortunately, but i like this song. Very trippy and spacious feel.
    It all comes down to flapping paper in the end.

    NIce work for an dday & arvo.
    I agree with Ido - but would add that thedrums are REALLY up front but sit in the middle of the image - I reckon you need to pan them some more - even just trying to replicate a kit's spacing.
    Kep at it - as the WHOLE thing works well & just needs tweaking.
    Cheers

    Very, very, very cool.

    Really love the feel to this. Vocals are great--could be a tad louder in the mix.

    The drums are a bit hazy, but I don't mind the 'mono-drum' recording--sounds like 60's drums.

    I'm definetely feeling a bit stoned now that I listened to this--well, back to work!!!!

    Thank you all for your kind words

    I remixed, backing off the drums and bass about 4 db and taking some reverb off of the rhythm guitar. The vocals are up a bit now too. Sound better?

    As an Australian I can only assume the joke is in terms of putting on some head muisc & lighting up a few buds - sativa preflower buds that is - as against squaffing a couple of cans/bottles/tinnies/longnecks/schooners/midis/ponies/glasses of light beer.

    & don't feel too left out, it's a cultural thang.
    Oh, the remix is ACE.

    Bud Light - maybe I should have said light up some bud (rayc had it right!) . Anyway - the remix sounds better now - drums sit better, vocals easier to hear, touch less reverb. Good song Mike!
