Ceevro's Shantylong Collab! Time to get nauti!! 2021-03-21 23:28:26
Well we are back as promised! After a totally awesome collab on DRIVE, it has been decided that we should take this opportunity to hop on the sea-shanty bandwagon! We shall be doing the classic, "Barrett's Privateers," by Stan Rogers. Got a voice? We need it! Got a fist? We need it to be thumped! Got other skills that you think would make the song better? Skill us!!!
Here be how you join:
- Download the sample vocal and backbeat RIGHT BLOODY HERE!!!
- Place it into your DAW, set to 90BPM.
- Record yourself singing along!
- Because I want an epic sound, all entries must also give me a track of them thumping something (I personally thumped my laundry basket).
- Send it in .wav format (YES....wav is important for sound quality!) to me in a DM using a file sharing service like Dropbox.
- We mix all the entries together...then...we get the booty!
And a few suggestions on how to help us out:
- Please say hi, and keep up with this thread! If we've got questions, or need extra work, or have a rough mix to share, you will find it here!
- Use the highest sample rates you can, and make sure you're getting a good waveform in your recording. If you're topping your mic out, adjust the recording levels appropriately!
- If you can harmonize, DO! This is a vocal heavy performance, and we need those harmonies especially badly!
- It's just fine to submit more than one track, and also just fine to submit instruments. For the very first time, I did not submit a guitar...I will if the mix takes us in that direction!
- All instruments must be live-recorded, REAL instruments! No samples or MIDI.
- Tell everyone you know who can sing!
Jump on in guys! The water is...well...probably full of jellyfish...but it's no fun getting stung alone!!!
