This is a brief 1st sketch of a song I'm writing for my Daughter. It is called "Dear Tooth Fairy"!!!
It is recorded using DP4/Digital Performer software, using a MOTU 2408 mkII/PCI-324 system. I'm using a MAC g4 DIG Audio DP533mhz comp./Ram is 1.5GB. The drums you hear are the click tracks the 1 Guitar, and solo Vocal were recorded to.
These days, it is really easy for me to record using Spectrasonics Stylus RMX real time groove module. It works like a very musical click track(As a plug in synced to the BPMS of your DAW) at first then you can polish it more as you go to the max.
I used Vocally, an Earthworks QTC1 mic going through a Pre-Sonus MP20 mic pre. The Earth works mic is expensive(Matched Pair1500.00), the Mic Pre is Low Priced around 400.00 . . .
I used a couple of plug ins for compression from Waves, From their---> Native Gold Bundle . . .Using: KRK/KRock speakers for mixing. $450.pairThis Snippet/Song is just 1:27sec. long It is Just the intro, with the Chorus 1 time through then Outro./Ending is rough. Next I will record the Counter Vocal melody on the Dear Tooth Fairy sections . . .
Basically, it is a "Letter to the Tooth Fairy Explaining My Daughter Swallowed her Tooth" (laughs)
This is rough!
I might show you all the recording progressions as I finish the tracks !!!
Any Questions feel free!!! Nothing hurtful please.
I would love to work as a guitarist/Producer for people that need that !!! We Can bounce music around the world if you like!!!Rick Grant / ZragmanATaol.comCome on the FREE COURSE TOUR
