I really like it; thanks for using me! I guess the only nit I would have is the delay on the vox seems to confuse things a bit. I LOVE the rooster!

My working method was to run a sample slicer over the whole track, and then to manipulate the
resulting sample in the slicer to achieve the resulting song. This introduced the delay (and the mild vocal morph). I thought it was fun when I heard it, but if I were doing it the next time, I’d just layer the vocal in at the end and apply some light fx to make it a bit more dynamic.

I thought it was cool that you did a redux of your first cirrus, and
this modest mix was a note of appreciation for the “pick yourself up, dust yourself off” nature of that effort.

Nice spin. I really like the softness of this track. That’s some good mixing.

Thanks, Teru. The methods I used here were the extremely simple methods of my very first mixes here, except that I have learned a lot more about the slicing software since that time.

Someday, if ever you have a chance, it would be fun to read an FAQ on how to write a backing track for an a capella. I realize as time goes on that I do a lot of bpm and in particular pitch things either manually or with imperfect software, and it would be fun to hear how a really great mixter like you does it. I’d say “gear it down to the basic beginner”, because although I might know some of it, it’s also possible that my ignorance is more boundless than anyone realizes :).

Has a nice ambience. The cock crowing is very real - slightly alarming. Moses reaches the Red Sea.
