Fully Woolly / NeoSoulKeys + Galileo2 - Fusion Rock
I think I spent more time trying to get the mix right on this stretch than any other track.
Here’s why: 1/track somewhat flawed to begin with (almost abandoned on first hearing as just the piano / bass track I recorded left something to be desired. 2/ trying to get the guitar, organ and EP into balance and come in at appropriate times. 3/listening on different headphones and monitors were so diverse on the first mix that I had to go to sleep. However, I got up this morning and tried again. There are a few dips and swells I could have lived without, but I have come to accept the frayed edges. So you tell me, was it worth it?
I recorded with the CUbasis metronome engaged at 140bpm and added Lumbeat’s synced Rock Drummer afterward. First time doing that, but found it a great way to not be distracted by a drum track while improvising.
NeoSoulKeys EP, BeatHawk Classical guitar from the Baroque in-app (quite great, recommended!) and a preset from Galileo2 ( also wonderfully authentic). Four tracks.
