Die Frau im Mond

Postby bluebell » Sun Mar 19, 2017 9:08 am

With my guitarist friend from olde times: a song about the very old game. A man who's acting very cool (at least he's believing) to convince a woman that she will want him.

With a little breeze from the medieval times:

What a great song!!! Cool! Compliments! :mrgreen:

Some positive meant critic.
For the tune which started at 11 sec i would have chosen another sound. For me this sound is a bit anoying cause to my honest oppinion it doens't fit between the rest of the song, and i think that's a pity.
But this quite well could be something personally.

Thanks for your feedback. I really wanted this sound and in the interlude I tried to set up some medieval feeling. I know that not everyone likes sounds like a (in this song used) schalmei or bagpipe. If it doesn't kill you it makes you harder :mrgreen:

Ach, maybe some Extremo in there ? Not too much, but some. Break the sequenced feel a bit. Make it jump out of the speakers a bit.

I'm saying this tongue-in-cheek :o , but still. Nice song, though.


For people who do not know Extremo:

Hi bluebell,

Really great, as usual excellent production and mixing. Everything instrumentally is spot-on. I'm usually not a fan of such over-produced 80's drums but they fit this arrangement so well and I actually really like how the kick drum locks so tightly and merges together sonically will the bass, together they sound like one instrument.

You never fail to impress and this one is no exception, keep 'em comin! :D

I broke their clean sound a bit with some medieval small drums playing the same pattern. So each 80's tom was doubled by a medieval drum (that would sound like an empty pizza box when played alone).

I made some dirty things with the vocals that ruined the s and sh sounds. I'll fix that in the next days. Oh and I made a wrong routing of the medieval drums directly to Master which makes them come "too early" 8)

In Qtractor, it's important that each track has the same number of "hops" to master out. So if you have a subgroup and route tracks to it then all other tracks have to be in another subgroup. They shouldn't be connected directly to Master, else they are a bit early because the routing of a subgroup to Master In adds one jack buffer of latency. It's hardly audible at small buffers like "-p 128' but if you have to increase the buffer size then it's audible. A good check is to start jackd with "-p 4096" and hear if the tracks are still in good sync.

The genre is not my cup of tea, but hats off for the professional quality, this really raises the bar ;-)
