    Re: GL - the band

    I'm so sorry this post is so long but I've been thinking for a while now about how we can do this. And if this is where we're gonna brainstorm, well...

    Microphones
    Yeah, Zoks, I'd consider returning it if you don't like it simply because you don't like it. See if they'll take it back. They should. You don't have to tell them it's 'cause you didn't like it - tell them it didn't work right. I mean, technically, it didn't - it's not working the way you wanted it to, right?

    Then again, I don't know if the difference between, for instance, a $10 mic and a $40 mic is going to be as noticeable as the difference between those and a $100 mic. We recorded What if God Was Stephanie on a $100 mic and it was awful - all the static and everything. Alex did a great job of hiding it but that song put up against the songs we've done recently with my new mic is worlds different. I mean, it was still leaps and bounds better than my old headset but I guess what I'm saying is we just can't shoot for studio-quality stuff 'cause we'd all go bankrupt. Unless we could get a sponsor out there to put up a few K for some good mics...

    ...yeah, didn't think so.


    Recording
    So...I was thinking about it and trying to come up with some sort of plan for how to tackle the songs. See, it's not like we can all just sing with the instrumental versions and incorporate that into our file and send it to Ultra Magnus - he can't make a mix of us all singing/playing along with the track - we will have to send him just our voices/instruments. The only feasible way I can figure out for us to do this is to:

    #1: NOT USE AUDACITY!!!!! Audacity sucks so bad that we made a parody song about it. For some reason, it just screws up the sync so bad it'll make poor Ultra Magnus's head spin. I'm not even kidding - even if you don't mix it down with the instrumental, it just sucks like that. So find something - ANYTHING else besides Audacity. Audacity is good for recording speaking stuff or stuff you don't have to sync up with some other track but not for something like this.

    #2: I guess the easiest way to do this is to get out an iPod and listen to the instrumental (NOT the track with the vocals) while you're recording. It would probably be nice to give Ultra Magnus a count-in like "two, three, four [sing/play]* to make it easier for him to gauge where he's going to have to trim the tracks we send him. I dunno, maybe not - do you have an opinion, Ultra Magnus?

    The big thing is to make sure to get as little surrounding nose in the recording as possible. Even make sure your headphones aren't too loud so that the music doesn't get picked up by your mic. The best place to sing is a room that's got clothes or couches or carpet all over the place. The more sound-absorbing stuff in the room (like cloth), the better. Or better yet - if you have a laptop, sing in your car!

    Anyway, those are some suggestions. There are a million & one things that can totally screw up a recording and, eventually, the mixdown but if we're just doing it for fun and not for the technicalities - I think it'll be a blast!

    I was thinking it'd be better to keep this kind of thing to PMs.
    That way we don't end up boring everyone else who's not involved with all the details they don't really care about.

    And with that, I sent a PM.

    Ya know, the song I've got my heart set on right now goes a little something like this:

    "Bing bang, cookin' by the book, 20 times up and 20 times dooowwwn.
    You. Are. A PIRATE!!!"

    Either that, or someone's editing your posts to try and make you seem like not so much of a complete anus as you usually are.

    Re: GL - the band

    So it looks like right now the thing to do is pick a song and just work on it. For instance, I think Zokita's taking "We Will Be Friends". I'm going to try and tackle either Bing Bang (again) or the Cake Song chorus with perhaps Ultra Magnus (and Zafa?) doing the verses (or vice versa). I might do Galaxy if enough of it's in my range. Other vocalists should pick a song they want to do (it can be the same as one of those three.) The rest of you who want to instrumentalize should probably focus on one of those three songs. Unless, of course, the musicians want to do their own song straight instrumentally.

    You do realise that you just named everybody who cares, right?
    Well, almost.

    And didn't you get my PM about different keys and stuff?
    I was waiting for you to get back to me on that.
