Wow! I hardly ever post comments, in fact I hardly post at all, but your music really deserves some praise.
Awesome production quality! Plus that mystical atmosphere in your songs (just checked out your website and a few of your releases).
Really really nice! (and I'm not even a big pop fan)

I gather you've used Qtractor as the main DAW?

Thanks.

yes, I use Qtractor and pushed my PC to its limits. The background choir in the chorus is me, 3 different tracks (high, med, low), each track 6 times copied and a little bit detuned and shifted in time.

The chorus itself has only 2 voices and tracks, but I attached CALF vocoder to get a "pet Shop Boys - Go West"-like effect.

The female singer was made "smooth" with Carla as a plugin containing:
- direct path
- slightly detuned up path, panned left
- slightly detuned down, panned right

In the Master Out I had my dreamteam:
- Calf EQ
- Calf Multiband Compressor
- Calf Saturator (slider to the left, "tape" mode)
- Calf Limiter

The guitar is a real one, played by my friend Patrick Fey (http://red-raven.de/). I had 6 tracks for it.

All other instruments come from CALF-fluidsynth, Linuxsampler, Dexed, Whysynth, Zynadsubfx.

Mix and mastering has been done in one step, recording Qtractor's out in realtime with Audacity.

Those are just the kind of things I've been wanting to know about. Thanks a million!!
I feel inspired to do some experimenting now.

Again, excellent work of yours!

myownmusic.de where the music is stored is not my personal site, so I can't say if it works via TOR.

Since there are many attacks coming from TOR some server admins block TOR exit nodes.

Dazu muss man wohl ein gutes Video machen. Musik alleine reicht heute nicht mehr.

When it is said that it's "affengeile" then I must take a listen !

It has everything, the Formula is there. "Alles was du willst" is quite good too, notwithstanding the triangle which ought to go away. Good singer. The guy's not bad either. :) Ach, the triangle comes back ln "Regentag". Nice tune also ! The accordion in "Zauberwort" is a nice touch. "Schnee fällt" auch sehr gut. You have a nice album there. Very nice work, nice sounding, the feeling goes through the production.

Tschüß.

Thanks. Some criticise that the vocals are too well-behaved. I guess we should work on that.

Thanks. In Master-Out I am working with CALF EQ, CALF multiband compressor, CALF saturator and CALF multiband limiter to get the same richtness as with Jamin in the earlier songs. The integrated mastering tool Jamin was ahead of its time, I think. Kudos to the coders. And of course to the CALF team as well.

Thx. The Triangle is very tricky to mix because of its high frequency range. In my headphones it tends to be too loud, with HiFi or car speakers it tends to be too low. Not easy.
