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? :)

issiro 1:01: Well that was actually my idea for going into Part B. Indeed a strange one, sorry :P

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

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!! ;)

Dick 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 ;) +2

EXTRA COOL Soul on this Goat that's for sure ! ;)
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… ;)

issiro haha! :D

well yes, this site may be too cool for words. I'm not (yet) :P 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 :)

issiro Thanks, OliV! :)

any advice for the mixing thing?

OliVBee 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 ;) ... this way you can leave your track at a decent lvl and make it sound more balanced against the drums in your mix ;) +2
November 18 2014 23:26:58
OliVBee
issiro okay, thanks :)

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 :(

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?

OliVBee
OliVBee i mean the master output of course ! the idea is to bring back some of your bass in the final mix ;) +2

issiro ok then, i'll keep you in the loop ;) +1
