Love....The Old Fashioned Way.

Hi Friends,


In continuation from my last track Plea! Thanks for the enormous support to BioRhythm, all in all 5,000 trees have been dedicated to friends, fans, family, acquaintances and Magix for the year 2011.

 

........................................................................................................................................
 

80s music holds very special meaning for me (I guess for almost every music lover around my age), I wanted to do a Pop song with the feel of that great era by doing my own lyrics and needed a singer, for that reason I purchased Yamaha Vocaloid Prima through Zero G technologies…..which was kind of beginning of a nightmare for me….after endless PC crashes Mr. Dom Koffe from Zero G technologies informed me that it is not going to work with a 64 bit system. Cutting the long story short… I won’t recommend any Yamaha product ever to anyone as I am sitting with a software which has given me nothing but headaches and a Yamaha Keyboard (PSR S 900) with a burnt out LCD display.
 

Coming back to the topic… composition was ready but I had a PC full of bugs and whatever little time I did manage to squeeze out of my hectic routines got spent towards fixing the PC issues (at times I feel I have become a better hardware & software technician rather than a good composer). Going through my sample collections I found appropriate lyrics and vocals from MMM 15 soundpools for the composition.


Here is a special present for the month of love… in an old fashioned way, if we speak of today many would sing that “my love will always be true…till I am with you”.


Love to me is the binding and bonding force that keeps the Universe going, accordingly the song finds its place under the cause BioRhythm which happens to be the CD title that I am currently working on. There has been plenty said, written, drawn, acted and sung for this powerful emotion. Everything has been declared of being fair in love, so next time when you get a traffic fine, tell the inspector that you were under the influence of love.
 

For the Tech Savvy…
 

Progression is in G major, BPM 120, Host FL Studio 9.8 Beta. Sample rate 48,000 - 24 bit with 320 kbps mp3 export.

 

Synths – Sytrus - two instances (or Channels), Absynth 4 - one instance, Albino 3 – three channels, Predator – three instances, Melda Large Drummer – one instance, Two channels for modulation, one for Vocodex, second through Midi Out for Pitcher and Antares Auto Tune, 17 channels of vocal samples and five channels for automation / mastering envelopes.
 

Effects used in the mixer tracks are Limiter - four instances, , MDE-X – four instances for varying level of reverb, Stereo Shapper – two instances, Fruity Reverb, Fruity Delay, Mda dynamics, New Tone, Parametric EQ 2, Equalizer, Pitcher, Antares Auto Tune, and compressor – one instance each. 16 tracks have been side chained (for vocals interlacing).

 

It's just one singer in the song - trust me on that!!!
 

Rise in LOVE always & enjoy it forever....…

Nice cover design.

Best Expression of thoughts specially about Yamaha

experience.

I read what you have written and thinking how did you learn

all this mixing, using different equipments.

Is it possible you can explain some main equipments/software

and how to use them to polish music compose on computer(no live recording)?

I knew you are busy guy if you can do that I will appreciate.

 

And finally your song and music is great. I too got this Soundpool 15 too and noticed

you nicely worked on vocals. I like it very much.

 

Thank you for sharing.

Hallo und vom Aufwand ein großes Stück Arbeit.

Doch einiges fällt auf. Sicher ist es nur ein Sänger, da ist viel Delay und Reverb Arbeit drin. Nur warum auch noch ein Flanger? Erinnert an japanischen Pop. Geschmacksache sicher. Nur was am der Sytrus schon im ersten Teil fängt das an, der läuft komplett gegen die Melodie und Rythmus. Zudem quitsch er und macht damit die Stimmung der Voice zunichte. Ein Albino ist Klasse und geht immer für Trance und Pop beim Sytrus ist es hingegen nicht so einfach. Bei dem nehm ich meistens den Acid3.

Für das Grundthema und den Gesang gibt es volle Punktzahl, für die "störenden" Geräusche leider Abzug in der B-Note.

Hi Rana!

Danke,dass Du mir noch mal einen Song geschickt hast!

Die Musik und der Gesang gefällt mir sehr gut,macht sehr viel Spaß und Freude anzuhören

 

Meinem Vorgänger gebe ich Recht....die Synthmelo,die ab und zu auftaucht, passt auch für mein Gehör von der Tonlage nicht  sehr gut hinein....

 

Es ist aber eine sehr gute Arbeit und ein aufmunternder Song!

True, you've created here, good pop music of the 80s. Beyond your technical problems, you still have succeeded a small feat. By cons, it is true that the voices provided by Magix, are used so often, they are not attractive, for use, even if we torture them to get new sounds, they become tiresome ....

Former users wrote on 1/29/2011, 3:26 AM

hi rana!

 

was mir gut gefällt ist fast ganze Stück

doch ein paar Stelle man kann noch minimal besser machen.

paar Stellen, was nicht so ganz 100 pro passt

 

aber zusammen alles genommen ist wieder große Klasse!

Hi Rana,
again a very nice song from you, the synth is a little inconsistent for my ears.
But this is total package. Good work from you

Despite all the work and technical difficulties you had with this song...

 

...to my ears... many things don't seem to fit here.

 

Since I am not a musical expert... I can't point it out in detail... it just doesn't feel right...
