    Default Solitary - Demo - Blue Snowball Ice

    I'm wondering if I should put harmony vocals in this on the the pre chs and maybe the chs too? Thoughts?

    I used the Blue Snowball Ice in Ableton Live for the vocals and in Logic, Predator, Firebird, ES2, EX24 synths and sampler.
    Guitars with Fender Mustang direct through cab sims.



    Solitary

    Wow, this song really sounds great! Your vocals sound smoother and richer on this one and aside from the synth patches that you've already mastered time and time again, the guitar sounds fantastic too! I'd go with your gut on this one; by adding some backup vocals/harmonization on the chorus I think it'll make the section "pop" more and stand out more. I think if used in lighter effect on the pre-chorus it would be a nice addition as well.

    My only recommendation beyond that is to change up the drums a bit to have it build more for the pre-chorus and really add some emphasis in the chorus. The song has a nice vibe and there's a lot going on with the synth section (obviously your passion), but the steady drum beat makes it all kinda blend together. You've got a great song here, so build it up and really make it hit home with the choruses.

    All good advice thanks man! Glad you like the song. I'll work on it some more late this coming week and try some of those suggestions. Cheers.

    Well, I tried harmonies but they didn't float my boat so I just doubled the choruses.

    Technically speaking, your songs are SO far outside of my realm I really should not like them. But, a good song is a good song and you write really good songs! This one is probably the most 'Morrisey' of the ones I've heard so far; would make a great closing credits song to the next Crow movie!

    What's that Morrisey song where he talks about her walkman starting to melt? Man, I always thought that was such a great line.

    Thanks guys for the listen and props, going through a rough patch and you put a smile on my face. Cheers!
