linger in the sun

What started as messing around with a sample of a Gaelynn Lea song turned into my Weekly Beat. (e-mailed to confirm it was alright to use for a cover project)  Had some fun messing around with slicing and making individual patterns.  I tried to spit some fuego raps in there to add some spice to it. (Ordering a condenser mic in a few weeks solely bc of how muddy these vocals came out)

enjoy!

Awesome dude!  The bass is so powerful on this, shit hits hard.  What’s that other instrument going on here?  Is that really heavily processed strings?  Sounds awesome.

Little tip for getting more of a dynamic mic, crank the shit out of your pre-amp and leave room between you and the mic... This pick up lots of crap if you have a noisy room, but you can get some more definition (at least this seems to work not too bad for me, my condenser mics are still at the rehearsal room which is not available at the moment, all the recording (vocals and even the acoustic guit on the waltz song) were done with an audix f5 or a samson q7 (wanna be sm57 and sm58).

Very cool song, soundscape reminded me a little of portishead.

Sometimes vocals aren't about the lyrics, sometimes they're an instrument to intertwine in the mix. This song does that well.

thanks dude.  I just ran the strings thru a timewarp vst to make it sound like a warped vinyl, and the bass is just a 3x oscillator with the 2nd and third oscillator turned down completely with the first wave pitched down to 12 on the course to make the sub bass.  Pretty simple track to be honest!

thanks a lot for this feedback!  I didnt plan on doing vocals this week but i'm working on a new track right now to incorporate vocals the tips youve given me.  My interface is like 15 years old and only has a mic gain and output knob so i might have to run vsts to boost the pre before i record my vocals.  I'm going to pick up one of those Scareletts i see a lot of people using, so when i eventually get a new mic, hopefully i can tweak to interface/preamp to help with the problems im running into.  thanks again for the tips!
