New song

Post by CDB Studios » Thu Jan 31, 2008 8:15 am

Hello everyone.

I know noone really remembers me, I havn't been on here in a good long while. Still receiving TapeOp and reading it, just been busy recording and the life thing. Marriage, daughter, touring, etc...

Here is a cut from our latest CD called One Cold Winter

What do you think?

Thanks for listening!

The damn 16 track 2" Ampex mm1100 is on the fritz, again!!! But I do love me some tape.

It's my love-hate relationship

Thanks! It's a fantastic snare made by the Bison Company out of Illinois. Plus the drummer aint to shabby either :-)

Nice song. I really like the guitar work and I thought the kick and bass work well together.

Just a couple things stood out to me.

1) When the whole band comes in at :11 sec it sounds really loose and there is an audible click. Bad edit? I'd tighten that up.

2) There is another click at 1:41

3) When the band fades out and the vocals are solo, the vocal reverb seems a little tubby/boxy to me.

Matt,

Thanks! I hear that too. I think it's the compressor on the vocal changing that creats the first click. The second is, I think, lip smacking. As for the reverb when the vocal is alone, that's what I was going for. The singer is alone and boxed in :-)

I'll get those clicks fixed, thanks!
