So....I am learning the ropes with all these fantastic tools here and I feel I am going to be charting more than just the one song I started with in another thread. In fact, I am currently working on many different ones. Figured I would start this thread instead of doing a separate post for each song.

 

 

WIP

 

ABC - The Look of Love                     RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Vocals.

Cameo - Word Up                              RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Vocals.

Dokken - Alone Again                        RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Guitar, Vocals, Harmony, with full multitracks.

Dokken - In My Dreams                     RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Guitar, Vocals, Harmony, with full multitracks.

Dokken - Just Got Lucky                    RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Guitar, Vocals, Harmony, with full multitracks.

Heart - How Can I Refuse                  Tempo mapping.

The Motels - Take The L                    RELEASED - Drums and vocals.

Quarterflash - Harden my Heart        CANCELED - Finished by Dash Riprock

Steely Dan - FM                                 Instruments and vocals complete. Currently testing.

Styx - Lights                                       CANCELLED - nsw1-6 has it in progress.

Wings - Silly Love Songs                   RELEASED - Drums, Bass, Guitar, Vocals, Harmony.

Zebra - Bears                                     ON HOLD.

Zebra - Tell Me What You Want        RELEASED - Drums and vocals.

 

 

Green text = new update

Black text  = Same since last update

Blue text    = Released 

Red text    = Cancelled

 

 

 

My process so far has been like this....

 

After I feel I have a good tempo map (IMPORTANT!) I chart the drums by hand. I do it all by sound first, then if a midi does exist I use that for reference. Call me crazy but I enjoy it this part of it =)

Trying to do vocals by hand was tough at first, but I think I am getting the hang of it (prolly gonna suck lol). Not sure about the DRYVOX thing. My mic sounds like I'm talking through a pillow for some reason. Gonna have to find a way around this somehow.

I will do bass and guitar if a good midi falls in my lap but I am really not interested in doing those by hand. I'm all for it if someone wants to collaborate. If I have multitracks, I'll do both guitar and bass (which is what I am doing with a few songs).

Testing process has been interesting. Tweaking the overdrive and things took some learning but I hope I have it down now. Watching others test your stuff is quite satisfying!

Cant stress enough the importance of that tempo map! 

For the drums I am reducing the level of difficulty by hand, but for bass I am using CAT in Reaper.

 

 

I find that working on just one custom at a time is ok for a few days, then I seem to go batshit crazy by hearing the same song repeatedly so I have to switch it up.

 

 

I will update the thread again when I am able to report something significant.

 

Thanks for reading!

The Korn cover is pretty good, but my friend is a purest and wants the original so I guess I'm making it.
