Klinkt weer super goed BaoBou.
De muziek van Mark is natuurlijk ook heel goed en samen hebben jullie nu een geweldige track.
Mischien moeten jullie maar eens samen gaan optreden.

WOW! WOW! WOW! deliberately in big letters! Mark and you, you've really achieved something great. On the one hand the mix is so powerful but at the same time totally balanced! This has a great radio format. Great !

Kind regards, Manuela

BaoBou. We’re getting there. The next round will have more rounded edges sound wise with the overall mix. This has awesome bone’s. Peace.

hahaha I see I turned kingmt into making - what an idiot. My excuse is I've been exhausted after another covid episode... but sorry my friend!

Well you have succeeded in
creating your own "Brand", I'm
pretty sure I could recognize a
track you made, anywhere.
There is a certain kind of spontaneity
to your work that sounds like you're in
a studio and you're only going to do one
take, so it's gotta be good. I usually don't
listen to lyrics but, you seem to catch me and
make me listen on every track.

Great track. Faved.. PEACE...

nice to see someone out here sharing the love, big up, also a kick in the behind. in the kitchen (literally) with this waaavy song. interesting sounds, will give a listen with headsphones
BaoBou replied 23rd Aug 2023 - 9 months ago
Thanks a lot!

I like having lyrics that are not fully specific where pretty much evryone probably recognises a bit of the feeling, even if you haven't been in the exact situation. I hope that applies here too, my new track is a bit more specific... but I think it's still a feeling people can recognise :)

nice work mate really groovy, nice song and mix, great guitar too bou. nice bass and drums, everything sits ok with me just the volume levels, mixing and mastering tweaks. im looking forward to see what Mark does with it, the engineers are the people that perform magic. your an all rounder mate singing playing and producing is more important to you, as you say you don't really concentrate on that side and you have become a great friend, keep sharing your art
BaoBou replied 23rd Aug 2023 - 9 months ago
Thanks a lot Paul! Yeah totally looking forward to hear what Mark can do with it :)

It's crisp man. Like I can hear the separation in between the tracks. The vocals are on a dead center throne & their isn't a missing bass drum anywhere. Technically, it's a fantastic mix. That's Ableton live for ya. Beautiful job man. Kudos.
BaoBou replied 21st Aug 2023 - 9 months ago
That's lovely, thank you very much, especially coming from someone who I know is much better at that kind of stuff than I am :)

BaoBou The first note caught my attention right away. May I ask what are you using in your mastering chain/mix buss? The song has plenty of excitement. The arrangement is rock solid. What I noticed is that the overall mix needs a touch of compression. If I get some time, I would like to download and run it through some mix buss ideas. Your passion and drive is admirable, big time. I enjoyed what you've done here. Keep up the great and creative flow.

BaoBou replied 20th Aug 2023 - 9 months ago
I usually don't concentrate very much on the mixing mastering as you know; I try to come to some balance where the vocals can be heard well and no individual instrument pops out unless they have the lead.

Then what I did was (all this in Ableton Live):
- the drums right now are midi (I used to have a practice room with actual real live drums but unfortunately I moved away so I don't have that right now). I use a drum buss for that; I played around a bit with teh settings to give it a bit of punch, but not too much, plus a bit of reverb on the kick and delay on the hats.
- a high pass filter on the bass and guitar (obviously more low on the bass)
- I also tried to shape the mids a bit to give space for the vocals, but as Manuela indicated, not enough
- then the keys again I think a low pass filter
- I added a "sustain" return for the keys
- for the vocals I went lazy and used Ozone Nectar
- finally for the master I used iZotope 10, both this and Nectar with the automatic functions. I find it's generally not worse than what I would do and I find mastering extremely tedious and frustrating :D
Yeah, I'll send you the stems, no worries! I'm in the middle of a house move, so hopefully somewhere next week, is that ok?

Hello BaoBou, nice drive, great solo and well done ending. The vocals sound like,,,,, you know *smile. I don't find the vocals to be asynchronous. On the contrary, the slight time deviations from the basic clock are perfect for my taste and ensure that the song doesn't become too static. I just think that you should pay attention to the midtones when mastering. Great song that might need a little bit of fine-tuning, but it's already very, very good!
Greetings Manuela

Nice work on the track BaoBou, really has a nice groove and feel...Granted that I'm listening to this at 5:00am and haven't had my morning java...the vocals sounds on point to me...I like that the backing vocal is not lining up exactly with the main it a different feel. Love the guitar work too.

Description : This is my little 16-bar sketch of a Soul-style track... my purpose in making this was to experiment with Melda's MDynamicEQ, which allows you to remove resonances, and to apply EQ's from one track to another. I even EQ'd this thing to sound like a 70's jam.

Description : Here is another track we are currently working on for my forthcoming album, "Songs from the Closet, Vol.1"

Ed Cunningham was gracious enough to provide this composition to me for which I'm grateful. It's a groovy track and the lyrics, for the most part, wrote themselves. My project co-producer and I are working out the vocal arrangement. As per usual, this track isn't mixed. I repeat, it is a rough vocal and isn't mixed. I hope you enjoy the listen!

Description : Again based on a challenge - "ORGANIC PANIC, MAKE AN ORGANIC TRACK; feel free to interpret it any way you like, from the dictionary definition, organic genres, lyrics, style, sounds...."

So I wrote a lyric based on the title, added loads of organs... and then for good measure another great spoken vocal of Kamal Imani.

Hope you like it :)
