No worries mate and thanks for your thoughts on my layering of stuff. We are all just learning and doing our best remember. When we think different to that, we may as well pack up and go home!!
I have a remix I will post next week. @TheSheep (Sean) has done the final mixing and mastering, which is a good collaboration thanks to MMWA. Now, as you say we just need singers!
Yeah, the Vengence stuff is really good. I use Kick2 from sonic academy. That is really good for shaping and tuning a kick.
Don’t worry with reference to your own vocals. Play to strengths and for now, if you think you are off key, then just make an effect of the auto tune. Later, you will have the singer that you wish you had now. What about using fiverr.com? You could send someone the track without vocal and with your vocal as a ‘guide’. They could send back dry vocals and even add their own flair/harmonies if you ask them to.
Keep going Jacob, you are on the right track…
