So this is my first "OFFICIAL" IMP...and i have to say that although the song is not right up my alley...it has grown on me over the 100+ times ive listened to it. its totally different from what im used to and i love being challenged. all the IMP's ive done have been challenging and ive learned alot from them. thanks to J for putting this all together and i cant wait to hear everyones mix's. this is also the first track ive ever really taken things and mixed them all up. was never really an arranger...figured id always leave that to the writers.

I've been wrong before, but sounds like heavy compression to me...

the lead vocal is slightly distorted.  sounds like tape to me.  and like fibes said........motown baby.........

the purpose of this song should be obvious, ya'll are talking about it for three pages now.

to answer a few questions in more detail.

the vocals were cut in a bath room (no idea what mic) with a comforter hung over the shower bar to dampen the room down some.  everything else was done in a completely untreated living room.

the drums aren't really "left and right"  one of them is some crap dynamic mic about 3' back from a giant concert kick drum.  the other is about 4' above my head and a few feet off my right shoulder pointed at the snare.  the drum kit is a concert kick, snare and hi-hat, that's it.

organ is a hammond L-100, guitars are a 72 tele thin-line run to a 1929 "volu-tone" amp that i found at a garage sale.  sounds gorgeous.  i believe one of the guitars was DI'd through my evil twin for a different sound.  not sure though.

the upright was tracked here at Theta Rhythm about 3 years after the initial tracking.  i didn't dig the original upright and had it re-done.  i think i used a bunch of rubber bands to hold an earthworks mic in the bridge.

keyboard stuff is a moog mini and a sequential circuits 6-track, DI'd through the evil twin.

Yeah, I got that from the second beat.

Stop talking about this stuff until it's reveal time, you are coloring the results.

As far as the whineyeasternblockhead who is complaining about the tracks; this is amazing stuff compared to what gets sent to me by "big city" guys. So, if this was a real world scenario and you complained like that someone would be just as quick to return the favor of pissing in your yard. A large part of professionalism is hiding ones contempt whether it's justified or not.

Unlike poker, everyone here has been dealt the same cards and the only real key to success lies within them.

Man.  I can't WAIT until you here the sweet clog dancing solo I just added in the bridge.


Dammit!  That was MY idea!

I dunno...  hardly seems worth it, really.  I work on it all night, wake up, log on here, and see this.  Now I have to start all over.

Seriously though, I am really loving this, although I'm having some trouble getting the vox to sit up and bark like they mean it.

Also, I seem to hear tape saturation, not clipping.  Then again, I'm pretty much deaf anyway, so don't listen to me.  Smile

Nice track!  It breathes.

Man I wish I could convert those RAR files. I purchased a converter, couldn't get it to work, contacted the auther of the program and his response was "that I didn't have enough experience with doing this type of thing" Well at least he's right about converting RAR files.

Chance, can you explain what happens when you try to open up the RAR file?  Maybe we can help...

One thing to check is the file size of the IMP12 download.  Get Info on the file, and see if it is something like 211,427KB.  (that's about 210 Mb)

I just used winRAR (PC).

I hear distortion, I thought it was tube. It kind of bothers me on the female vox, is anyone else hearing it on those? I don't have a problem with it on the male vox if it's there, I added more distortion.
