    "Taken" with Pedullist on the bass

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Pedullist has given me the order and authority to post this for review, after several scuffles with track alignment issues, all my fault as usual. But today I stayed sober and figured out that little problem, so please let us know how the mix is. Having his real bass track really gave me a better perspective on the rest of the mix too. because it is, naturally, so much more alive than a keyboard bass. Now whether or not my mix is good is of course the question.

    I think the interesting part of this is how we did it. He asked me to send a Cakewalk file (.cwp) of the bass part so he could read what i had written for it. Then he played that part virtually note-for-note, but with his own style and feel. From there he sent me a 192k MP3 for me to mix in. I admire his skill and ambition. Very much so. And the speed at which he works is efficient as well, so communication is smooth and progress is more easily guaged.

    Anyway, I thought that might be helpful info for the evolution of our collaborations.

    Thanks a ton!

    Ok the timing couldn't be better. Yeah it looks like Jack Skeleton is back in action. The percussion in this one is putting this totally into a theatrical realm for me. Arrangement and writing are stellar and i like the feeling not just the lyrics are telling a story but the music itself is telling the same thing in parallel. Great job on the bass Ped this must've been a kick to work on.

    KIDNAP MR. SANTY CLAWz!!!! AAAAaaaAArrGGGH!!!!

    I'm going to enjoy the videos that get made to go along with these. or movies. right? right?

    Hey Khomp...thanks a lot man. Actually my girlfriend is a former film student. We are definitely going to put some of this stuff to video of some sort some time soon. She has a nice Canon DV camera and some good software and we'll just need to learn how to use it well. Should be fun though! Trick will be deciding which song to start with. This one has some visuals to play off, but so does Feathers and Bones and others, so we'll see. You got me wound up now...
    Thanks man.

    Oh ya... I wanna do it. Let's draw straws.

    This is insanely good, as usual. Creatively, conceptually, and execution top notch. I'm not kissing ass, I just can't find anything to criticize. Honest!

    Thumbs up

    Complex stuff, great! Excellent playing.

    This is perfect, can't find any fault worth mentioning.

    Smooth, ultra tight, and clean guys. I hated to see it end. Loved the sound of that acoustic being worked like it was. Ped, you got a warmer smoother tone on this one, sounds good. Enjoyed the story...
