Pretty self-explanatory, fun with SONAR X3.

I played and sang everything except the drums which were a loop that I slightly sped up in Amazing Slow Downer and edited to fit the arrangement of the tune.

Nocaster w/TH2 Overloud, Sonitus comp and 'verb
Taylor 614C (direct) w/comp and maybe verb
P-bass (direct) w/comp

Nice. That sounds like it was pretty fun to put together.

Of course, it was great playing as well.

Excellent! I don't know if it's Soundcloud but some of the snare smacks sound heavily compressed. Great writing and arrangement, and damn fine Nocastering.

Thanks Te, that means a lot coming from you. Rigby yes it's an ongoing thing with my boy and I and the tune had to come out!

The door slam made me mess up two tracks though because I put it in early as a marker (I couldn't do a scratch vocal at that hour!). It came on REAL LOUD and startled the bejeezus outta me. Then I finally lowered it in the headphone mix!

Rockit!

Little--yes they are (snare smacks compressed). That may be Soundcloud but I pushed the limits during mastering. I don't seem to hear it too much on the .wav file. The mp3 is 320 so it shouldn't be too bad, but soundcloud doesn't stream it full I do not believe.

Sounds great Tyrone. What a fun project. The only thing I heard were some sibilance issues. A lot of the "T" and some of the "S" sounds were over driven a little. Other than that, which is very minor, it sounded very good. Great guitar playing as always.

Edited for wrong words used....

Nicely done! Love the country guitar sounds. And the bass is EQ'd perfect.

NIN--I used a hand-held vocal mic and the proximity effect allowed for the real bassy vocal lines, but I'm sure it also contribute to the sibilance issues. I /should have/ used separate tracks for those lines but alas, I did it all at once live.

Mark, that's a '64 P-bass straight in with some compression. I wish I could take credit, other than where I chose to strike the notes, I futzed with that till it sounded right.

Tyrone, you could probably find a plug-in for Sonar that would fix those problems. I assume Sonar uses VST plug-ins. I am certain there are sibilance controller plug-ins in the VST format. I probably have some. I use Pro Tools but if there is a cool VST plug-in that I like, that is not available in the RTAS/Pro Tools format, I have a conversion, or wrapper, program that will make a VST compatible with Pro Tools.

That's some subtle & tasty playing and great tone! The mix sounds good too.

Having a teenager myself, those lyrics are close to home!

I've been playing with X3 as well; have no idea what I'm doing but having fun with it.

Thanks both! I'm looking at some de-essers and there are free ones about.

2Left, there's lots of info on the forums, and if your version is new enough to get phone support they're very helpful.

Tyrone - my first attempt at recording is a Dregs tune (that was a mistake - I should've picked 'Mustang Sally').

So between time signature modulations and trying to simulate the genius of Steve Morse, the Dregs, and Ken Scott it's been a really frustrating exercise.

I'm using guitar rig 5 and came up with a patch for the main guitar tracks that I found appealing but after listening I think it may be a little fatiguing on the ears.

Anyway - my respect level has gone up for both musicians (who don't get 'red light fever' and can capture the musicality of a tune along with simply playing in time) and engineers/producers who go through the exhaustive process of their art.

I would guess the more you do it, the more you routinize things that come difficult at first.

Step 1 if you haven't already, is learn how to use the auto-punch feature, so you can give yourself enough roll-up to play along with, but have the machine punch in right where you need to fix or continue playing. If the tone you're using is all VST-based, it's after the guitar goes onto "tape" so you don't have to worry about clipping the reverb when you punch in, etc.

oh yeah - I've become well-familiar with auto-punch and the take lanes; awesome feature! And I've learned that sometimes that single note I replaced sounds out of whack in relation to the notes before and after (usually performance-based).

I've also learned that if I change my strings after completing 75% of the tune, the new clips aren't going to sound the same (!!!).

I'm learning all kinds of stuff - painfully!

You're one up on me with the take lanes. I know they're there. I'm just confident in myself that I can roll the dice and get a better one if I say I have a better one. If I'm really not sure, I'll use a new track (I'll use the clone feature so all the FX transfer). That saves me from having to remember which take. But I do think I need to learn about the take lanes.
