This song has been a couple months in the making and guess what? I'm STILL not satisfied! The vocals are a little bit sloppy and off pitch at some points because I'm going to be redoing them in the future because my track sounds so fucking good but the timbre of the vocals clashes with the instrumental and sounds awkward. I'll get a new mic and do them again. I also did the backing vocals with a G-track and the lead vocals and ending vocals were done with a Logitech headset.
I had it mixed real good like, but I went ahead last minute and put a 6 dB mastering device on it just because I wanted it to be louder. Let me know how that goes.
This is a tribute of Long Time, a song off Cakes new album Showroom of Compassion (a tribute is like a cover except in covers you're trying to 'cover over' the original, get it?) I really dig this song and Cake is one of my favorite bands so I just ended up deciding to do this. It's not my favorite Cake song, but it's pretty damn cool and that leading synth in the original drives me wild.
There are SO MANY separate, live recorded tracks in this song, Audacity was skipping and shit while I was trying to make the song. Every track is recorded live by moi and recorded through a Samson G-Track or a Logitech USB headset, manipulated through FL Studio 9 Free Edition and Audacity and mixed in Audacity and mastered in FL Studio 9 Free Edition... EXCEPT for three tracks that were recorded by Mihai Sorohan and satanicpotatoe (Yeah, that's right).
NG users sorohanro and satanicpotatoe... Well, they helped out in a huge way; sorohanro recorded himself playing trumpet for the track and did, I believe, a fantastic job at it, a very talented musician with an already established NG existence and satanicpotatoe... Just wow, he did the drum track through some program, I haven't asked which but, damn, he did a badass drum track for this, I see him getting more popular here. I manipulated their tracks to my satisfaction and thank them IMMENSELY.
Instruments I used: B.C. Rich Warlock electric guitar, Crestwood acoustic electric bass, Casio LK-35 keyboard, Yamaha Portasound PC-100 keyboard, found objects and my voice.
I added my own flair to the song, you can probably tell if you know me, haha.
