Title: Anyone fancy covering a MaSU song?
Post by: SJGamble on January 05, 2012, 03:19:54 pm
I'm bored and I was wondering if anyone wanted to collaborate and cover a Machinae Supremacy track.

I'll do the vocals unless anyone has any objection, but we still need guitar, bass and drums.

Let me know what songs you can play and if you're interested!

I will definitely try to help if I can. Imma play keyboards, so I'm your SID man.
Also, when it's complete, would you be willing to have it released along with the rest of the songs on the Little Freak Project?

But... there are three "I don't think you understand"s xD Two of them sung by girl (high and middle), and the low is sung by Robert on gigs  ;)

i'll put them into midi soon as proof.  :)

(and i forgot to mention my voice is much worse that it was once  ;D )

BTW. there are more backing vocals in FF :)

I know - I meant the bit sung by the girl in English.

I think it'd be cool to have someone read out the Japanese bit in English too, would really give our own stamp on it :D

Cool dude - just record all the backing vocals then as you see fit :)

If you can translate them, you can certainly try out my sexy awesome voice with it.

Yeah, that.

Playing a song you wrote live is not a cover version. It's "playing it live."

Oh so in that case it's a new or hidden song?

We're talking about FF (Force Feedback) with the "I don't think you understand" section being sung by a girl (the high and middle versions) and the low version being sung by Rob, on gigs. I don't get where the whole "cover song" shit came from.

Are you guys still doing this? How will you go by without a guitarist?

If you are, I might be able to help out, though I have had recording problems in the past. How are you guys going to put the mix down in the end? Who's doing the compiling of all the tracks?

I'm recording shit :P but it's still shit with my mic xD
looking for some vst voice correction effects (but, damn, not autotune xD)

I'd love to try my hands at real mixing.

I'm doing a Music Technology A Level Course at school, and hoping to go on to Uni to do it, so I a) have some prior knowledge b) would benefit from the experience.

Shapow.

Here's a free one. http://www.gvst.co.uk/gsnap.htm
If you're looking for pitch correction that is.

Cubase also has some built in tools, if you're using that particular DAW. VariAudio. I'm pretty sure some Mac DAWs like Logic have similar tools too.

The extent of my mixing would have been shitty work in garage band, so its all yours Hadou :)

I'm definitely still up for it, but It'll have to wait till the 24th for me, I've got my final A2 module then.

Yeah, I have exam modules (the most soon-ish of which is on Friday the 20th) but I will have time and stuff to do the mixing, especially since I should be "practising my DAW skills" as a sort of ongoing M. Tech homework task.

You guys chose probably the most technical song on A View for guitar :). I've started learning it off a tab posted on the forum early last year but it's incomplete and incorrect some places so I've started adding my own iterations - but blimey this song is pure shreddage for my fingers, especially that solo.

I'll get it eventually.

if you want to learn rhythm part with audio, then foo_dsp_centercut->sides should do the trick  ;)
(btw doesn't ff riff sound like shinigami riff?  ;D )

Woah, thanks man. Awesome plugin :D. It almost completely removes vocals except at the prechorus and chorus; very helpful.

It's a little early but I'll try to get some of what I've tried to learn down in audio as a sample. Try.

Awesome. Can I grab everyone's files so I can import them in and sort out where everyone's contributions will go?

I really wanna get this project moving, and get some form of WIP guide track laid out or something.

Just saw this thread about an hour ago, and figured I'd take a shot at doing the guitar track for it.

That's all I could get done for now, but I can easily finish it up tonight
