She Does That To Me

My first offering, home recording, zero budget. Hope you like it. Acoustic guitar singer / songwriter style, hopefully sounds light and clean.

Hurray for zero budget home recording! Came out quite well, lazaruslong: very clean indeed. I like the tight slapback reverb feel—don't know how much of that is room and how much is effects, but it works well. Reminds me of some of the better Sublime bootlegs kicking around on my iPod.

Thanks cortex! I doubled most of the tracks and added the verb / delay on the duplicates so I could ride the wet signal up and down. The LE D-Verb isn't the best so I thought the delay might fatten it up a little better as well.

Dude, tell me you've got a duckass haircut. That would be the best.

And FYI, that made me go google for duckass. THAT was fun.

Hey Cortex, not sure if you read these once you've looked at them, but I was having a technical problem that I thought you might be able to help me with.

When I was bouncing the protools session to WAV it was taking my partial pan information and hard panning anything that was slightly off center totally L-R. I couldn't figure out for the life of me why! I tried upwards of 12 bounces attempting to fix the problem and nothing worked.

Eventually I took doubled everything and panned one hard in the desired direction and one to center to sort of workaround the problem, but it's really restricting my ability to construct a complex stereo image. I'm hoping I'm missing a setting somewhere...

Max OSX 10.4, Pro Tools LE, bouncing to WAV stereo interleaved. Have you run into this issue?

No Mac and have never used Pro Tools, so I can't be much help. That might actually be a good question to throw at AskMe.

(And yeah, like a lot of heavy mefi readers, I tend to see followups on threads I've commented on, thanks to the My Comments tool. Damned handy.)

Gotcha, thanks anyways. I'm going to try and troubleshoot it some more before I query the hive. Cheers! =)

Laz -- yes, it's a compliment! The song has a great retro '50s vibe to it, is what I meant. Partially in your singing, partially in the reverb -- it's a really nice package. Aces!

(Hopefully when Googling you found a page like this one.)
