Nice! There is something very ripply and water-like about the guitars in the beginning that fits your lyric so well.

Edgy and spirited as always. You go girl (ok so that’s a little dated, but then so am I ;-) ).

When the tanned dude is done with you can you send him in my direction, I’m flailing out here!!

P.S. nice to know you’re feeling better.

Always a pleasure to hear you..always..You sing better and better, just sometimes, some notes…not’re great..
Just a question..How do you find the time to record..?

The stems were so excellent that I really mixed most of this yesterday morning while waiting on hold with AT &T, to get cable in our new house. The vocals came very quickly this morning at 8 am.

Another example of your keen ear and great writing- everything meshes nicely, and as usual, very powerful and expressive.

oh god I love you..
the vocals seems way too loud in the mix, but your voice is so addictive!

edit: how do you record your vocals?

I am glad you like the mix- one reason I posted so quickly is that I knew the stems would get mixed a lot- they are so great.
I usually mix my vox in pretty high, just because I guess I want to hear myself, and I am half deaf due to years of loud music:)
I use a low end mic (sure beta 58 A) and record with pretty standard 2 point eq and a little delay & compression (in ableton). In this case, I took two vocal tracks and put one through multi band compression and the other through an amp simulator with a pretty extreme phaser (on garageband). The two vocal lines are a little out of synch (something ditto ditto taught me) to give them some fullness.
I know, they are pretty loud. You can always remix it though, to your taste!

wow, sm58? sounds like a good condenser to me. you have some pretty good remixing skills, my good madame.

I’m very new to recording and working with vocals. Mind sharing what preamp and interface you used for this?

you have gotta be pulling my leg. usually I view my position on ccmixter as the sad, tag-along little sister that doesn’t know what the hell she is doing.
It is an m-audio fast track pro 24 bit pre amp. In terms of interface- I record on ableton live (6.10) and then render to an aif and finish on garageband.
I seriously sometime just press a whole bunch of buttons until it sounds ok. Some of my earlier a capellas involved over 18 eq points.

haha, you’re too humble. if there’s anything I admire, it’s being able to make and sing lyrics that resonates so well with the music and beats. I’ve always wanted to find such an elegant vocalist/collaborator to make an electronic album with, but alas..

have a nice day!

Another gem from the VOICE.
One little nit pick. Like it was said before, the vocals are a bit high in the mix for me, but it’s about preference.
Nice work.

Once again your vocals are first rate and the delivery spot on.

The backing production is very good but for some reason I felt it at odds with the vox. I’ve only had one cup of coffeee this morning so maybe I’m not fully awake yet.

This is still a great sounding mix maybe its a 3 cup one and not a single regular!!

Another memorable demonstration of your vocal capacity. I like a lot. Thanks for moments like this.
