Hey @budhabuilding and all the others,

I finally found some time to record those vocals. I made all three verses so you have something to work with, but the idea is that @Mar T. and someone else ( @Rachel_D , @Katze Konigsberg , or maybe even @Zedd has some time left again...) will sing one verse each.

There are two versions of the chorus, one in singular (My world...) and one in plural (Our world...). For the plural version I recorded three voices. Same thing here, I would only take one of those voices from me and the other two from the other "animals".

Those are completely dry tracks, coming directly from the microphone. I thought I'd leave the equalising, compression and stuff to the expert... ;)

Maybe @Mar T. could come up with an idea for some background "oohs" or "aahs" somewhere...? :D

Cheers,
Mark

Hi guys @Mark Luto , @budhabuilding , @oorlab and @Pleudoniem , sorry I was absent last weeks, family matter aGAIN. All is fine and under control now. I'll catch up on this project and deliver some results to work with this week.
Without having listened yet, I'll sing all three voices as well (that is.. if I can sing in that range) and deliver some oohs and aahs..
Is there already a intermediate 'mix'  so I can hear how it should sound all together?
Cheers!
Mar T.

@Mark Luto 
Sorry to get back so late
I have some technical problems with the recording...
It's to loud. They are distorted.

I think something went wrong while bouncing
could you render the stems again....

Thanks in advance.. :ok:

Oh dear, I'm sorry @budhabuilding ! I probably set the preamp too loud when I recorded.  :-[ Just realised that the the peaks are way too high indeed, especially in the choruses.

Now I bounced everything with -6 dB, but I don't think that's going to do the trick for you, is it?

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/25e4399pe3raufr/AAA74q67jJQ9M8VHtT7HNFuLa?dl=0

Let me know if I shall record everything again. I'll gladly do so, but it's going to take a few days again...

Sorry! :-[ :-*

Mark

Hey @Mark Luto and @budhabuilding , for efficiency reasons we could decide to use the clipping tracks for now as a guide.. That gives us the idea until we 'know' how we want it to 'be' (and who sings what part). Maybe that saves some time at this stage, not having to record everything again.. Is that an idea?
I'll add my vocal recordings for all parts (sketches as well) asap.
Just my 2cts..  ;) ;)

I think that's not a too bad idea @Mar T.  :)

By the way, we still need a penguin, preferably a female one. Any volunteers? ;D

Can any Polar bear
Tell me what you want me to do here?
Saves me time to read through 5 pages of Input! Busy as usual.
Like that Portishead fell to it btw.
If it is just a bit of backings I could help out. Not much time at the moment.

@Mark Luto  @Mar T. @oorlab @Pleudoniem @Chris Spruit

Finally had sometime to get all stuff in for a demo version. Still not clear what i want to do with the ending of the track. ???

@Pleudoniem i did a lot of editting in the bass but i hope you are fine with it...also did some cut and paste in the guitar. (still some little work to do ::Rachel::)

@Chris Spruit great that you want to take time to try the penguin part.
Mark Luto came up with the idea to use a poem from Andrew Blakemore.
I think it works great. you can find the poem at the end of this post. (hope to shorten you're reading time. ;)

@oorlab would love to hear you in backing of the chorus (you can try out your new Rode :thumbsup:)

@Mar T. can you do 2 version of the seal... one with full verse and one ending verse.. Just in case i change my mind with ending. ???


You can download the stems (music, guitar, Vocal, violin and backing )_ at
https://hanstimmermansdrive.nl/s/pw1K6m7ocd6rF4z

The last demo version... still beta (need a better verb, balance and some cleaning)












Melting Ice

I am a mighty polar bear
Who never did do wrong,
I raised a family of my own
And once my will was strong,
I liked to wander far and wide
Across the caps I'd roam,
But every year things seemed to change
It feels no longer home.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.

I am an Emperor penguin
And I have a tale to tell,
I raised a family of my own
Together we did dwell,
Each egg I cradled carefully
While bitter winds did blow,
But every year things seemed to change
I watched it slowly go.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.

I am a lonely Arctic seal
Who's resting on the shore,
So many of us used to come
In years that passed before,
But sadly now I'm all-alone
My friends no longer here,
Yet still I wait in yearning
That one day they shall appear.
My world is falling to the sea
I've had to pay the price,
I have nowhere that I can live
My land is melting ice.



 


Sorry :doublebonk: for beeing a bit slowwwww
what exactly
Do you want me to do :
The entire verse?
or just some Backing vocals?
..................................................
I am tapping in the dark :-)
