96 Tears - In Progress

Get Flash to see this player.

I had to reupload this because I had the guitar track muted the first time. Took me a while to figure out why it sounded so weird. Well, maybe still sounds weird. Just testing out mixing down this version of 96 Tears. Will try vocals one day but for now am using a simple synth line to fill in the melody part. Nothing great but still took a lot of work.

I have a bunch of stuff at the "80%" stage and I may be uploading those to just get a feel for sharing them. A lot of stuff I hear here is pretty darn good and I do not think I am so hot, but I would like to share my thing even if they are only in progress still.

Just upgraded my interface preamp to the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 and so far really happy. So many problems with the one I had before after I upgraded to my O SX Mojave. This baby on iMac is just plug and play. Thanks.

Hey KC
That organ sound is from Kontakt, a library called vintage organs and I am using the Farfisa one. No matter what you do you sound groovy baby.

I thought Farfisa then I saw your comment!

That sound is so evocative.

I'm not sure it needs vocals tbh.

Sounds great



I've got a Saffire Pro 14 but Logic still defaults to my previous Fireone and I have to change it each time! Neither Apple nor Focusrite have been able to sort it out!

The interface stuff can drive you nuts. I had some problems at first with Mojave and the Focusrite and just about cried but then sorted it out. Had to go into system preferences and change something. Found what I had to do online.

I hear what you're saying about the vocals. I may try it to just practice doing it. Or I may do a version with the guitar doing the line, like the Ventures did. This is more for reference right now. But the synth line sounds sort of like that, like some guy is using it as a guide or reference track. Let's see. Thanks.

Just a guy running out of time and not much time left to do it in. I play some music but not very well. Not looking for fame or fortune. Enjoy what people do here and hope I can contribute something half way decent now and then. I like to stick to... [see more]
