Reviews for "Cuckoo (Uncappella Project)"
Quote: (have I blown my speakers or is there digital clipping going on throughout the mix?)
I noticed the clipping, too, I just thought it was covered by "There are several things I realize I could add or clean up, but I don’t have any more time" -excuse.
I didn’t find the distortion disturbing, it somehow did fit in the mix, giving some kind of "old recording" feel.

This is just gorgeous. I’m really impressed. The backing vocals are just dynamite. You did a really good thing here. I think this approach is very winning and lovable.
Glad y’all liked it. Conceived it in my car during my commutes last week. I’ve written quite a few songs lately - I’ll post some ‘pellas soon (thanks for asking!). Yes, there are production issues I didn’t have time to fix (the clipping on the "answer" backups & the occasional out-of-tune-or-time note on the Cookie Monster bass line). I’m still learning production - and still learning to be effective using FL’s audio interface (it’s not the most straight-forward out there - still may get N-Track & use rewire). I think the clipping/distortion issues are part level setting issues during recording, part Audacity mixer ;), part medioce effects (pitch/time shift) on a couple things, and part inexperience at mixing/mastering on my part. I’m planning to find ways to address all those things as I continue to learn. thx for listening (esp Lisa - your note made my weekend!) —Chris

Man. Where do you live? If this one kicks me out of the top ten I’ll come and get you!
Dont worry be happy: Great arrangement! And delighting falsetto singing, really reminds me of BMcF.
Thanks for the kind comments; I had a lot of fun doing this one.
Thomas, I’m in Stillwater, Minnesota, USA (near Minneapolis / St. Paul). I think you have no worries re: the top 10; you’re arrangement is pretty brilliant. I’m still going to try that sometime. BTW - What tool(s) do you use on a project like that?

Nice vocals. Maybe you should post a few pellas on the site. Very nice voice.
