I agree with RZ the vocal is unique, a kind of cross between Frankie Miller & Bob Seger & Joe Cocker. Nice One.

So I'm curious as to a few things with this song. Are you using plugins for drums and keys/synth or are you actually working with external units plugged in to the laptop/reaper. What mic are you using and what effects were you using? Again, plug ins or external

This is all done on the new Mac / Logic Pro 9 set up - with a Focusrite Saffire Pro 14 interface - which replaced the Reaper/laptop setup a few weeks ago
Im using an NT1A mic -
Guitars are into the Saffire from a V-Amp2 -
All the keys and synths are plugins that came with Logic.
The drums are loops that came with Logic.
All effects are pretty much presets - again came with Logic
The Vocoder is a logic plugin also - I really like vocoders :-)
I squeezed the vox a bit with the compression stuff and drained the life out of them with EQ :-)
Mastered using a couple of mastering tools - again came with Logic.

Thanks for the kind words -

Richard

A very fine job I have to say. I've listened now a dozen times and enjoy it each listen. Got any more music made?

thanks RZ - currently working on a bunch of BSR stuff with the lads -

And kicking myself for not learning start points on bounce with logic - which has caused me a serious headache with importing wav files played against mp3s... :-/

of course the downside to the new kit is that everything is taking a lot longer to do :-)

But isn't it fun to learn something new? As much as the frustration of beginning, the challenge of conquest is so great.

indeed - just "discovered" the Logic amp sims and virtual pedalboard stuff - blimey - almost instant pink floyd - only problem is that you can waste hours on it :-)

I think the 4416 could use a mouse, but somehow it was dropped from the specs. Underutilized ??


the mouse feature does work on the aw4416
you must use a serial mouse plugged in before startup ...
it works for many features including naming, selecting buttons, parameters etc ..
just saying
