To bad it's too late for Christmass, otherwise I'd have been blasting this in the holidays. But big kudos anyway!

Just the way Sr. S intended it to be...


TIP: You need to add some boost to that solo. Would of put it all together better.. IMO
#9
thanks everyone. Derek - do you mean "boost" as in you feel it needs more gain on the amp? Or boost as in it needs to be higher in the mix?
#12

schecter c-1 elite guitar
fender standard p-bass
dunlop db01 'crybaby from hell'

i liked it--the only thing i didnt like was the fact that the whole grunge vocal voice thing u got going in the first two verses sounds like ur trying too hard... dont try to put TOO much distortion in ur voice or it just comes sounding corny
#15
i think you forgot to say,"the three words that best desribe you are as followed and i quote",-"STINK,STANK,STUNK!",idk for sure,i kinda zoned out around that prt,but i didnt go bak and listen

thanks. I have a bit of natural raspy-ness to my voice to start with. It's not something I 'put on', but I can definately push my voice harder and make it more pronounced. I don't know that I could explain how I do it, y'know? I just do it, I sing and that's the result.
#18
all I can say is that this cover is the shit! What amp do you have man cause it sounds killer? What Tab did you use for this cause now I want to sit down and crank a version out,lol. Great stuff man!

hahahhaha that was fucking sic!!

The vocals on there was great and i loved the guiatrs!...especially the solo
#21
thanks very much guys.

CSguitarvocal - sorry no tabs, bro. I learn by mostly by ear these days. for this recording I plugged my guitar into a DI and then into my soundcard. I used a really awesome amp simulation software called Revalver MKII. It's by a company called Alien Connections and they have a demo for download on their website (alienconnections.com). I highly recommend it as it's the best software simulation I've ever heard.

how long is the trial and can you record using the trial?
#23
um, I believe there is no time limit. I think the demo limitations are that you can't save presets, and that every three minutes it emits a sound, like a beep or something. you can use it in your vst host to record in demo mode too.
#25
Very nice, that made my day!

I was looking for some inspiration for my own sound, and I really like your guitar work. I have a busy day tomorrow

Ok i had to post again because i listened to this song more and it's right now in my top 5 favourite songs right now.

Edit: Is that your singing because it's really good
#33
thanks alot. yessir, that's me singing. I did all the parts, guitar, bass, vocals, and I sequenced the drums in samplitude 8 midi editor, which then ran through EZdrummer.
#34
can Revalver MKII record or just change the sound because I'm making a song but i need a recording program with good distortion.
#35
no revalver doesn't record audio. to record with it you need to use it as a vst plug in inside a recording host program. Like cubase/nuendo, sonar, samplitude, reaper, etc. Any recording software that is vst compatible will do.
#36
Amazing! The guitar tone is awesome, drums sound full and natural, vocals are perfect!
EDIT: I listened to Help! too, just amazing...how do you get everything to sound so full? Mastering software?

thanks. ha, i do TRY to master my stuff. don't know how good i am at it but i'm learning. i've used izotope ozone a lot in the past, but right now i'm using the mastering plugs that come with samplitude.

i've not been doing this for long, but there are a couple things that i've found work for me in making a nice "full" mix:

whatever you're recording, make sure you're getting a nice clean signal. if something is muddy or crackly or has too much background noise it's only going to muddy up your final mix. use good high quality cables and try to minimize any background noise when using mics.

don't record too hot. a lot of manuals for recording gear will tell you to get a signal as hot (hot=loud) as you can without clipping. I've found this makes the final mix sound pinched. you want lots of headroom in all your tracks. headroom means lots of room to turn something up before clipping. more headroom is always better for having a nice clean full mix.
