That's weird. There was a cowbell and cymbal track, but I removed them from the folder, as they were never used (and sounded a bit stupid). No idea how or why that would show up? I downloaded the rar to a different computer after up loading it and I didn't get them.

There should be 28 tracks of audio. Kick, snare, toms, O/H, hats, mono room, bass, 3x acoustic guitars, 2x hammond tracks, a Nord synth, fretless bass, sax, 4x vocal.

The files are 44.1 16 bit.

Have fun.

Yup, the cowbell, cymbal and a stick track only have their ghost wavs in the rar.


edit: Greg has answered this while I was typing.

OK, just ignore them, they aren't needed. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks Stefan,

I can only claim credit for the engineering though. I had very little to do with the song arrangement.

I did think you'd all enjoy this one though. I know I did. Very Happy

Dammit.

I'm stuck in Chicago for the week for training for the day job.

I have REAPER on my work laptop and a decent pair of Sennheiser cans, so I'll mess with it as much as I can.  Sad

Greg, the tracks sound phenomenal!

I should have been more clear....the recording is stellar.

Now, what to do with that sax.....   Very Happy

Saxophone will always be the hardest instrument in the world for me to take seriously.

Ha!

I though it was just me.  

The sax melody line works just fine, I just find the voice of that instrument inconsistent with the vibe of the song.  It's almost like having Professor Frink from the Simpson's sing the backing vocal.

I'm not really reading this thread yet, since I like to keep my ears from getting tricked by what I read...

but I can post this: thanks for the track, Greg.  It's different... and it can go a lot of different ways... i'll post some more specific comments later, but I don't want to predispose anyone's mixing.   I am interested in hearing how everyone heard and interpreted the tracks.. how they represented this band in their mix.

My mix is almost done, and I think I like it... it came together quickly... much more of a "faders up" mix than I usually find possible.

I don't know if it was intended to be recorded that way, but I had trouble with the sax. It sounded more like a trumpet. It took a lot to get that woodwind, air blowing texture out of it. I like the way it ended up though. it's almost like different instruments blending back and forth. Pretty cool.
