    Awww that is AWESOME!! I can only imagine how happy she will be when she sees that.



    I know it wasnt the intention but this is exactly the sort of thing you could get on a tv ad or something

      Phew - kids with overdub skills. Start 'em early.

      And which part of our grey island will you be visiting?

          I'll be in Sandwich. There is nothing to do in Sandwich. I'm bringing my ukelele. Usually I stay in Canterbury which is very cool. But Sandwich... yuck.

            Yes, apparently... robots use reverb.

                I had to Google Map it - Other than historic references to the Earle of Sandwich and his card game, it tends not to get a mention. I see why.

                    I said I'd wait to post this until I had a vid, but I ended up taking the advice of Ram and Aaron from the prior thread. I had my buddy send me a track identical to the toms except on the snare. I then overlayed that track on the tom track starting at the second chorus and gradually leaned it in the direction of the snare (using automation and EQ). I like it, but am open to suggestion.



                    I also did a few other things, most notably just after the high vocal note near the end of the chorus. I felt like that part was a little flat, anticlimactic, so I pushed the guitars and backing vox forward so it would stand on it's own better before giving way to the subdued finale. Also made some very minor automation tweaks with a few spots and added a bit more reverb to the crashes because I felt like they were too close compared to the rest of the mix.



                    I'm about 99% sure this is the final, but as I said above, if anyone is bothered by the new snare focus of the chorus please let me know.

                        OK... Oswlek... I fixed the blurry line (just for you!). Added piano too... really thought it was calling for it. The only part I'm sketchy about is the ooohhs during the bridge. I think I can do them better, but I have to go catch a flight... so it's as close as it's going to get for now.

                          Yes to the snare! Sounds great... you have my email. I'll take a copy please.

                                Really, really good guitar rock; very Top-40, circa 1978.

                                “Good Vibrations” was probably a good record but who's to know? You had to play it about 90 bloody times to even hear what they were singing about. What’s next? Rock opera? —Pete Townshend, Melody Maker Interview, 1966.
