Hi

This is a cover of a little tune from a 1986 Black Sabbath album Seventh Star. This is a great album, but it was originally supposed to be a Tony Iommi solo project, but the record company insisted he used the famous name. Glen Hughes provides outstanding vocal performance. I higly recommend this album, a hidden gem.

But anyway, I covered this track, In Memory. This is my first project using Sonar 8 Producer and I used EZ drummer for drums and tried to get as close to the original drums as possible, and I think it´s pretty close. Guitar Rig 3 is used for all guitar and bass sounds, the accoustic is a little harsh sounding, but it´s hard to get a good accoustic sound recording only direct line through onboard (Ovation) preamp. The song is a little longer then the original, just to make room for some solos of course. wink.gif


Check it out, both my cover and the original if you can get it, it´s a beautiful song. smile.gif

Sounds very good playing wise and the drums sound awesome. There is quite a bit of clipping in the mix though.

Back the leaves down some and see what you think.

Very nice composition bro smile.gif

"Think of a guitar solo as a paragraph. You need a clear beginning, a middle, and an end. Look at musical phrases like sentences, and make sure you break them up using punctuation—or space. You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

oh man, I LOVE this song.


Indeed a GREAT album!!!!!

Nicely done. Yeah, the clipping makes it tough listen.

How are you liking Sonar 8? Did you upgrade from 7?

Thanks

I like Sonar alot, but it takes a little time getting used to, the user interface is a little tough to learn, not as easy like Cubase, but it´s worth the effort to learn it, many great features, like the 64 bit engine, and it uses multi core tecnology. I did not upgrade from Sonar 7, I was a Cubase user, so Sonar 8 is my first experience.

About the clipping in the mix, I can not export the project in mp3 format, because you have to buy the encoder seperatly, so I exported in Wav format and there were no clipping there. But Wav is too big to upload so I used AVS audio converter to convert from Wav to mp3, and then I got all this clipping and dropouts. I don´t know why that is. :/

hmmm. I've never heard of that happening...Whats ACS?

7 has the 64bit engine and multi core support as well. Of course I WANT to upgrade to 8 but I dont know if I really will see any benefits.

Thanks skennington. smile.gif

jer: Sonar 8 has no major visual change, but there are some new features, but I´ve never used early versions so I´m not sure if it´s worth upgrading, but it´s always nice to have the latest version. smile.gif


I fixed the clipping, it was not AVS converter´s fault, I just lowered the sliders in Sonar mixer, and it sounds fine now. I adjusted the mixing as well, I think it sounds decent, but what do you guys think, anything you would do different, I´m still not pleased how the accoustic guitar sounds, it stands a litle bit out of the mix. I´m working on my mixing skills, and great to get some feedback. smile.gif

That sounded very good!!

Perhaps I'd try panning the picked guitar a little to the left, solo guitar seem to be a little bit to the right already. Just to try and see if it gets more roomy, I belive the picked guitar is very much in the middle now.

But I must say I'm impressed by how good all the instruments sound by themselves.

Set the gain on your pre-amp about half way and level all of the 3 eq sliders to the middle. find a studio vocal patch in your modeler and you should be able to find a nice clean acoustic tone that you like. smile.gif

Heres a recording I did for Skillet's Santa collab using my Ovation C24 with a studio vocal patch...

Great playing man, Awesome solo tone, very smooth and defined. The clipping seems a bit weird for how your desrcibing it, Maybe its just due to compression and conversion? Im not sure, but either way. Great job.

Great advice guys, that´s a great tone on your clip skennington. What modeling are you using?

Thanks man, I'm using a Toneport UX1 and this one was done with a vocal preset in the Gearbox software.
