I have co-produced this song for the studio project Oceanwide.
I have been bringing some fresh new music arrangement ideas for the song and once the final takes were recorded, I have mixed and mastered the song.
On this song I have done:
► Drums & Beats programming
► Synths writing & performance
► Guitars co-writing
► Guitars re-amping
► Audio Mixing
► Audio Mastering
WOULD YOU LIKE TO HAVE A SONG OF YOURS TOO?
WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON YOUR MUSIC WITH ME?
This is how it works:
Customer typically sends me some basic music wishes (or an amateur demo of the song), some commercial references (customers favorite music) and the lyrics (or at least some parts).
Then I start writing and/or arranging the music, I do adapt lyrics and even add some lyrics for chorus or other parts of the song if needed. I send demos (including my guide-vocals recorded) during the songwriting process to the customer and we discuss everything, doing revisions and building the demo until we both are 100% satisfied.
Some customers (like Oceanwide) are asking me only for some fresh new ideas and perspective for already composed song so I do some music arrangements, additional parts and programmings only. No lyrics writing, no music from scratch. Only arrangements, enhancing the music parts and bringing some new colors and sounds.
Once the demo is finished, we plan the final vocals recording session.
Customer rehearses the vocal parts and is sending some work-demos to me and we do some remote revisions before we meet to record the final vocals.
During the vocals recording session I coach the customer/singer to get the most out of him.
There are always some things to correct such as phrasing, accents, melody and the last but not least, the vocal emotions.
Sometimes, there are even 2 or 3 vocals recording sessions needed to get the final results on all song parts. The final vocals recording session is usually 3-4 hours long.
Once the final vocals are recorded, I do audio editing on all vocal tracks.
This means I do some audio quantization and tuning improvements if needed (always needed).
Then I do the final audio mixing and mastering. During this stage we discuss all the sound quality aspects, the final sound design of the song.
NOTE: When songwriting or co-writing for a client, I do not ask for any rights. The client always owns 100% of the song's royalties.
HOW I WRITE:
Guitars were recorded and re-amped with Fryette Amplification Sig:X tube amp.
There was also used Diezel Herbert Preamp pedal into Sig:X Power Amp for alternative main rhythm guitar tone.
I have also used Carl Martin PlexiTone pedal in front of Sig:X amp to get another color for higher octave rhythm gyuitars.
I run my tube amp through Two Notes Audio Engineering loadbox into some legacy Audified IRs I have been capturing back in 2008 in Prague with my wife :)
In the song Adore, there were used 4 different IR cabinets at once - every rhythm guitar track had different IR.
And for guitar post-FX I use my ToneSpot Electric Pro plugin I have designed with Audified in 2019.
I use Steinberg and Toontrack virtual instruments.
Mixed and mastered with Audified products.
