Pretty self-explanatory, fun with SONAR X3.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> Nocaster w/TH2 Overloud, Sonitus comp and 'verb<br /> Taylor 614C (direct) w/comp and maybe verb<br /> P-bass (direct) w/comp

Nice. That sounds like it was pretty fun to put together. <br /> <br /> 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! <br /> <br /> 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!

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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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. <br />

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. <br /> <br /> Having a teenager myself, those lyrics are close to home!<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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'). <br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <br /> 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).<br /> <br /> 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 (!!!).<br /> <br /> 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.
