    Default Re: SOTW Blues recording

    I think we're struggling to get the last one or two current entries in to close off this edition.

    It sounds like Pete may run another SOTW Blues recording process some time after he has completed this one, if my reading of his responses is correct...

    DanPerezSax? You're finished now? [Impnt]

    Well, have we heard from cpete? I sent him a PM but he might have blocked me - not that I have any real reason to suspect he is blocking me 'cause I'm usually pretty much a not-blocked person (I think?...).

    If cpete is done and DanPerezSax did eventually get around to making his recording, we're done and might want to check in with Pete Thomas to see where we are at.

    Swansong? See what cpete and DanPerezSax are up to please? [Impnt] I'm not gonna pester either of them more than I have already...

    Yes, I will mix in some of the drums counting and re-send it.
    That was useful - the 1st drum beat was in fact not at the beginning of the audio file so something had gone wrong and I was able to line it up.

    OK it is up on the site at http://www.petethomas.co.uk/saxontheweb.html

    Well done everyone!

    (Dan Perez's is the wrong take we just found out, it may get updated if he sends me the right one)


    The next round will be a little way off, but anyone interested should now email me, not PM (as my inbox is hard to manage):

    CONTACT PETE ABOUT THE BLUES RECORDING

    and choose the SOTW blues option from the dropdown menu.

    Sounds great everyone. Bass clarinet sounded cool.
    Dan Perez, if that was the "wrong take", I can't wait to hear the right one.

    Talking Re: SOTW Blues recording

    Not quite sure how it worked out that way but mine's leading the beat by a whisker rather than sitting in the groove where I expected it to be on the backing... Just a fraction of a second, but it sounds 'strange' to me...

    And I love that bass clarinet...
    And Dan? Not bad at all for a 'throw-together'...

    Great mix all round, well done guys...

    Thanks again for all your hard work, Pete... And that little bit I did for the ending wraps the whole piece up well - glad you could use it...

    Well, it's exactly how I gopt the file, 2 bars of silence start bang on the beat then the solo. Do you want me to try nudging it a bit later?

    Ooh, ooh, I'd love you to! (If'n it's not a huge amount of trouble to do...) You'll find it sounds much better starting just a whisker later and deeper into the beat...

    I'm not quite sure how I managed to botch the timing on it but I'd love to hear it matched up closer to how I thought I'd timed it...

    Again, thanks muchly, Pete!

    The best thing then is to send it to me with the first snare drum count in on the track so I can line it up

    Thanks, harmonizer and Kenny D. I did work on this thing, and I think I had like 26 takes, which is why I sent the "wrong" one. It was not the one I intended, but I think it sounds good now that Pete's mixed it in. I'll send the one I'd intended when I get a chance, but since I've started this new day job I have had very little time to chill on my home computer and bounce that take. Probably I'll get to it on Saturday.

    Pete, I have always wondered how you can line up the timing of these tracks that you get from us, with the intent of the person who recorded their solo. On SOTW #2 I had intended mine as a more behind-the-beat kind of thing than how it came out in the compilation, but after listening to it I realized I had given you absolutely nothing in the recording I sent that you could have used as a frame of reference. I have a multitrack recorder, so I think if I had thought this through better I should have asked you how I could give you something to help with the lineup, like perhaps give you a stereo recording where one of the channels included the backing track.

    I line them up from two bars before they start. I ask everyone to send me an audiofile that starts exactly on the beat of the first beat of the (two bar) count in. Otherwise, I would not be able to line them up.

    If in doubt you can include the drum beats of the count in (what clarnibass did)

    I had problems in the previous round, as well - except I think I was further behind than I intended (Pete kindly fixed it for me). Perhaps different programs / methods add or take a way a hair or two when exporting the file. I'd suggest the best bet is to put the first snare beat in!

    OK everyone, this is getting a bit out of hand for me. I just noticed some people sent emails with the wrong subject header, most of those would have gone straight into my spam folder and disappeared.

    So please don't contact me using the address above, (and not via PM either) please use the form here:
