I made those a little late because I thought it sounded groovy. Maybe it’s a little too loose though; I’ll take another look. And yeah the tones–especially the one in the second verse–weren’t that great to me. I should probably even re-record that lead guitar in the verse.
I use REAPER. That has these time-stretch marker things which might be similar to what you’re describing. I’ve used them before and they can be handy. There might be a few spots I can easily notice for improvement here, but I don’t want to get too nit-picky about it because it drives me nuts in no time haha.
@Emma Thanks for the feedback. I hear what you’re saying about the vocal. I’m usually really focused on making the vocal shine too, but I guess it was because I didn’t think I sang it very well in this song that I was okay with it folding more into the song. I definitely need to do some more detailed automation and such though so that the volume feels consistent. Maybe I can give it a little more of the mid-high frequencies or harmonics or something to help it stand out more too.
I’m gonna work on this some more and post another version later this week… it’s so easy to get burnt out on a song and it really helps re-invigorate me to share it and get some feedback.
