Original Samples

I created the guitar, the bassline (well, this is keyboard and very close from the guitar but...), and the drums...

Process

Well, I didn't know how ccmixter works, so I clicked on the button "a cappellas", and picked up the first one I saw (by the way it wasn't the first on the list).

I listened to it several times, didn't know what to do with it, took my guitar and improvised on the a cappella. The first riff came soon, I recorded it and put a funky sound from Guitar Rig 2 (the exact preset is "Funky Autowah").

After a few difficulties to adapt it, I recorded the same riff for the "rock" part.
Well, we don't care. I recorded all the guitars parts, step by step according to the voice.

Then I recorded the drums, with the Axiom pads, automationned everything, adjustings the errors...

A applied some mastering presets, "Rock Room Kit" for the drums (I changed the Multipress preset from "Punchy drums" to "hi-fi drum"), "Male Voice Solo 01" for the voice, adjusted the levels and tadam !

Other Notes

Sorry I'm French, my english is crappy.
