thanks for checking this out...
Yeah I've clearly not 'nailed' the drums but not for the lack of time and effort haha..
Now, a funny thing.. in the middle of the track, I have got a separate snare track with a sort of snappy marching beat but clearly it is too blurred so am guessing there is just the suggestion of a snare that triggered your thoughts?
No-one has mentioned the broom, am wondering if I underplayed that, I had a lot more sweeping but ended up cutting it back, does it sound like a broom????
It's a 3/4 beat and I don't mind it being a bit disjointed - I didn't want a waltz beat but will re-visit that for sure - ta!
Thanks Andrew - Great to hear from you ta!!
Yeah that big hand drum is the culprit.. it is drenched with transients.. as are the bass and descant wooden recorders and I suspect the drippy reverb I poke in from time to time is messing things up more... the drum sounds fantastic live, but even in my 'dead air' studio it has the most dense frequency range. I'll have to play round with it some more, this was my first recording with it and I layered it with the SD drums, trying to combine the midi and real... hmmm, more work needed... all good though! THanks again!!
Thanks red... great to hear from you and yep.... I agree too... hehe..
did you notice the broom sweeps by the way??
Gawd I tied myself up in knots with the layers, yet again
Hey there skua, great to hear from you ta!
And yeah, as I said to Stan, I did actually pop a wee martial snare bit into the middle part but am guessing it is so buried in the mix that it just gives a suggestion rather than a presence?
As usual, I spent a ridiculous amount of time tweaking trying to turn the thing into a 'something' that my ears have become quite numb... oopsy!! Thanks again for your kind words!!!
