So I was playing around with some arcade-style synths on ReFX's Vanguard, and I thought I'd do something a little dubsteppy to go with it. Then, 8 bars into the project, I was talking to a friend who was next to me and I said "Hey, you know what would sound good with this? Gershwin's Summertime." So I conscripted our amazing jazz singer Amber to record the first verse to a simple backing, and we only needed one take before it was on its way into the Cubase file. Two days later, the production is finished and it's time to go into the studio for mastering. I worked a little differently than I have before, this time chaining auxiliary channels as effects buses into a master. This seemed to work a lot better than putting all the plugins on the single track and it was also good when chaining a few compressors together, being able to alter the input levels straight from the ProjectMix. I'll probably remaster it with some final tweaks, but until then, I'm uploading it here for you guys. I've not done much dubstep (and never actually completed a track), so I'm quite pleased with this one - a nice start to producing the genre. It was almost a shame to destroy Amber's voice with so much reverb and delay, but I can find peace knowing that I have a few pure jazz tracks underway with her where I can produce her voice for what it REALLY is, not a synthetic, overprocessed icy long reverberant line that's the staple diet in electronic production. Anyway, here it is - Summertime feat. Amber Creaven.
