They're a ton of mistakes in it, but I'm pretty committed to the Hanna-Barbera quantity over quality approach.
Mistakes? Like, "wrong notes"? I would think you would not believe in such things!
Yeah, the slide is unforgiving. The cello isn't any easier.
I can't listen to a melodic onetake without wincing several times.
My friend recorded all the bass guitar on his album by using a fretless bass thru Autotune. That's pretty funny I think.
Haha. Yeah, I'm having trouble imagining what that would sound like. Electric and bull fiddle?
It was more for pitch correction than effect, right?
Yeah I think it was more for pitch correction than effect. If done properly it would not really be noticeable at all... Basically the fretless bass is always sliding into the "correct" note for the song. A lot of it was atmospheric metal, so the bass was more for just low-end than properly composed "bass parts"... but I haven't listened to the album in-depth enough to even notice the bass specifically.
Well, I just listened to an online excerpt and it sounds like there ARE specific, jazz-like bass parts. So it's possible that the autotuned bass is only on a few of the songs, and that he got a session player to be on others. Interesting, though.
Yup. Right now, especially since I'm focused on live stuff, I only use the computer for mixing, EQing, compression and such.
Plus warm, frail and beautiful aren't really words I'd use to describe the plugins I played around with a few years ago. Maybe things have changed since.
I was looking at live setups and LCD Soundsystem had it listed. I think it's exactly what you'd expect.
I just thought it was funny in that seemingly silly instrumentation way.
I mean, they have a bunch of folks with two hands on stage, but they use a little box to make hand clap sounds.
Also, I'd like to hear what equipment are you using for your guitar stuff.
I'm using my cheap electric through Native Instruments' Guitar Rig app -- sooo cool!
Holy shit. I'm watching some Guitar Rig 2 demos without the sound. Looks incredibly fun.
And you've never had your comp crash on stage?
Yeah Guitar Rig is a lot of fun. Heaven't tried/seen v2 yet.
I'm just talking about "studio" stuff.. haven't used Guitar Rig live before. But no, I've never had my comp crash when using Guitar RIg. I have used Reason live, however, with no problems..
Somehow I'd managed never to hear any of your music until now. That's good stuff.
It's essentially a musical blog. Everything is improvised in a single take and mixed down the same day. Kinda like a public archive of freewrites. Nothing too amazing, but I know its helped me develop without having to put out an album.
I tried to find something of yours to read once, but I could only find reviews.
Pretty much the same sounds as before, but I'm trying out new setups. Like, I used foot pedal for this one.
You know, every night of this summer that I've spend on this, I get closer to this vision of a gonzo interactive performance that I've dreamt of for the last 12 years.
Also, you should post about what you've been up to sometime.
