At first, thanks to Zamzam for uploading a lot of cool stuff!!! This one offered me the chance try something new (for me). I absolutely dig the neo soul-genre (e.g. D'Angelo with maestro Pino Palladino on bass) and would like to learn some tricks which are behind it. I'm not sure whether this is going into the right direction. Perhaps you can give me some advice? :)

D'Angelos bandleader is my neighbor by the way.

Oh cool! That sounds interesting. Since you're so near to the source: do you know anything about the release of a new album? Wink
December 01 2014 19:41:03 alexjZamzam
Nothing mentioned. But he did say he could come do some sessions on some of my recordings :-D

nuno1959nuno1959 EXTRA COOL Soul on this Goat that's for sure ! Wink
ZamZam's mixes are VERY tempting but can be quite a challenge & you pulled it off brilliantly !
As i usually do, i read some comments below while listening & i'm sorry but i'm going to copy & paste the whole ''recording tips section'' of it…
This site is TOO COOL for words… Wink

haha! Grin

well yes, this site may be too cool for words. I'm not (yet) Pfft For me it's a learning process, very lucky that i got in contact to the recording thing by joining the loops and i think i can improve that along with having fun smile.gif

OliVBeeOliVBee nice track with lots of movement and small variations ... i like the control you have on your instrument smile.gif

Thanks, OliV! smile.gif

any advice for the mixing thing?
November 18 2014 21:38:55 OliVBeeOliVBee
like Dick said ... Zam² uses almost the entire dynamic range so lower the backing track and setup a comp/limiter on your stereo output ... adjust the output lvl with the limiter Wink ... this way you can leave your track at a decent lvl and make it sound more balanced against the drums in your mix Wink
November 18 2014 23:26:58 OliVBeeissiro
okay, thanks smile.gif

actually i've tried a limiter on the master output but the result hasn't been satisfying, since the mix was constantly on the 0db level, no dynamic left and it didn't sound very well Sad

when i'm back home on friday, i wanna try a comp, too. Do you mean the backing track by "stereo output" or the whole mix including my track?
November 18 2014 23:29:41 OliVBeeOliVBee
i mean the master output of course ! the idea is to bring back some of your bass in the final mix Wink
November 18 2014 23:37:55 OliVBeeissiro
ok then, i'll keep you in the loop Wink
November 19 2014 12:55:51 OliVBeeDick
...think we really should have a compression/dynamic handling tutorial @the forum sometime soon smile.gif
November 19 2014 13:29:56 OliVBeeOliVBee
that would be nice yes !
November 19 2014 15:08:52 OliVBeeDick
have a look at the "tips & tricks" forum, I had a little go smile.gif
November 19 2014 16:49:25 OliVBeeOliVBee
cool article Wink
November 19 2014 18:20:20 OliVBeeissiro
well done, Dick! smile.gif especially a fat thanks for explaining some parameters of a compressor!

DickDick 1:01 - what happened?!
thats confusing me A LOT Grin
repect for the quick-mute moves, thats hard to do. I like this! (louder!!!)

+2 November 18 2014 17:48:07 Dickissiro
1:01: Well that was actually my idea for going into Part B. Indeed a strange one, sorry Pfft

quick-mute moves: Nearly the whole track is played with three-finger picking technique + palm mute. That's the trick. smile.gif

louder: I'm the opposite of a good mixing guy. i even think it clips a lot in the way it is right now. heeelp!! Wink
November 18 2014 19:30:15 DickOliVBee
i like the stop idea !! Wink
November 18 2014 20:24:35 DickDick
zams tracks are a bit difficult to remix - he is using every bit of dynamic range, so you will have to lower the backings volume to avoid clippings when remixing Wink
November 18 2014 23:16:37 Dickissiro
oh sorry, i didn't see your answer before asking OliV. Thanks for your comment Wink

by the way...@ Dick: in the list of selectable styles, there is no "soul"-option smile.gif
Sounds like: [ neo soul ] [ soul ]
