Run With Me

Description
I have been working with this one for the last couple of weeks, then lost most of it with a "Circular Structure" error when adding some midi keyboards. Half the tracks now have this reverse echo thing. The weird thing is that if I go back to previous versions of the song I still get the error. Disheartening, because I was really digging the buildup in the outro.

Anybody get that error before and know any tricks to resolve it? Right now I am resigned to moving on to the next song, and I'll probably retire the midi aspirations.

This version is the latest decent sounding mp3 I could dig up.

Enjoy!

Lyrics
How'd you get to be my friend
Stuck it out until the very end
I've always been myself with you
You knew, you knew

I know that you'd always run with me.
I knew that you'd always run with me.
You knew, You knew

That's fantastic!
Really nice song and great singing too - touch of the Dave Grohls there if I'm not mistaken. I've never heard of a circular structure error!! but other people have:

although there doesn't seem to be much you can do about it. Back to the song - one of your very best, if not the best.

Hey
I don't hear the Grohl similarity but that's cool if others do!

I think I found a work around for that error, I just need to duplicate every track, copy the contents over and delete the old tracks. Seems to be working so far.

Thanks for digging it Smokey!

Firsties
That's not only first for firsties on this song, but the first for someone claiming firsties on any song of mine! Mega firstie!

Run With Me
I like the picked acoustic, and the electric lead sounds like Knopfler. Strong vocals and harmonies. Can't help with the circular structure thing, the few posts that are out there are inconclusive.

Good Ears
Pretty sharp, I did pick the acoustic, and the lead was finger tips a la Knopfler.

Yeah, that error is a strange one. The weirdest thing is the contamination carries over to earlier saved versions of the song, even before the error occurred.

Nice Pete
I'm sorry to hear about your CS problem and hope it doesn't come back. I checked the link smokey provided but no joy. It seems to happen most when adding stuff while the rest of the tune is looping, which is exactly what I was doing yesterday, but somehow avoided it.
In any case, this one sounds good, vox and lead.

Yeah
That's what kicked it off for me as well, I was doing some percussion fills in cycle mode and it lost it's marbles. Makes me wary to plug a midi controller in anytime soon.

Glad you liked what I was able to salvage!

Don't know about the "circular structure" error, but if it's taken you away from this song that's a pity - this is good! I like the clean guitar and expressive vocal and the simple lyrics that you use in a powerful way. Much enjoyed!

Have no Fear!
I have discovered a work around. Though I've already moved on to another song, I can revisit this one when the mood strikes.

Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks
That's what I've been striving for lately, to get everything tight and balanced. Glad to hear it's starting to come around that way!

Hope you had nothing valuable in that shed!

Really like this, Pete. Nice clarity in the mix and the guitars are sounding just right. I also like your vocal work in this a lot. Distinctive and expressive. (Very) Decent sounding it is! Regards, Peter.

Excellent stuff
Guitars are spot one. Dig the sound on this one. Kind of reminded me of Steve Miller for some reason. You're an excellent player man.

Acoustic
I made the switch to a condenser mic and am pretty happy with the results. The sm57 hasn't been retired though, I've got it pulling amp duty to capture those electro licks.

Thanks for stopping in and listening!

Very fine for a "salvaged" song.
There's some really nice guitar work in this. I love your style of playing. I enjoyed your vocals too, though I think they could use some adjustment to the levels. Some great harmony and bgv's. Very catchy tune also. T

Salvaged
Glad you liked. The levels are a little low but I couldn't get them adjusts after the error. But I've since found a workaround and will keep your words in mind. Thanks!

Great mix
. . some really neat guitar playing happening in there, and also enjoying the way you have balanced the vox with the backing vox, kind of nicely weighted but punchy in the background

Thanks for the dl
It is sounding just about there. I just had some minor level tweaks to do but I also was working on some percussion accents and string synths. Glad you liked it as is though.

Something about this
that grabbed me from the beginning.

Lovely guitar work.

Despite your concerns this sounds very good although the vocals seemed to get a bit lost after 2:00 for some reason.

Merry Christmas!

Cheers

Well then, thar, Pete...
This sounds pretty darned neat in the headphones. I love the vocal quality, and I love the acoustic lines and tones against the electric lines and tones....

It does have a neat circularity to it, doesn't it?

A great listen...
Pete_NB said 2116 days ago (January 1st, 2012)
Listening
Hey Ed, glad you had a chance to hear this. I was sort of addicted to the sound of this one when listening with ear buds.

I'm finally getting interested and spending a bit of time in working out the engineering side of things. So much so I just went and got Logic Pro (great deal on it at the app store if anyone is so inclined). It's a learning curve but I'm kind of blown away by the tool. Can't wait to get my first Logic tune out there!

Not sure what a CS is...I thought it sounded good. Like your vocals especially. The guitar was a little Mark Knopfler sp? flavored..sweet
