Hysteria - Def Leppard Cover - Progress

We spent Monday evening mix hammering out ideas for drum parts for Hysteria - yes a Def Leppard Cover we have had in the works for a while. The song has been sitting in some form or another on a hard drive since 2010. It's been recorded on at least 2 different digital platforms and with different levels of gear. As with all these songs, or relics we import our existing tracks into our DAW of choice "Reaper" And then it's track cleaning time. Then we listen to see what tracks we need and if there is room for improvement. Because there is always the possibility that the boys from Def Leppard may hear this version some day we will work painstakingly to make sure this song is worthy of the groups approval. What we can tell you is that we have stuck very true to the main guitar melody lines and the vocal lines. What we can also tell you is that the guitar solo/bridge section is modified and we have added a whole new outro section to the song which we think compliments the track well.

Our scratch of drums was sent off to our session drummer in Niagara. If we get tracks back this week then we will be at it again… until then patience is a virtue.

Mix - It went down Last Night!

Another mix session for Believe has come and gone. Through the week Trevor spent some time mixing guitar sections of the song Believe. A little eq and a little room setting. Last night Mark and Trevor convened the mix. There was a little replaying of what Trevor deems as the oriental section of guitars in the bridge. Then it was straight to the vocal mix and plugin setting up on the vocals. The music is pretty much completely premixed. Now the big focus is on Vocals. The music sounds fantastic. The band is very excited about how the music sounds with live drums. It makes all the difference in the world. Sounds very organic, very real. A big thank you to Jim Casson for providing drums for this song!

Stay tuned… Yes stay tuned! We are almost there. Red Light Masters

Small Setbacks - Believe

Tonight Red Light Masters was hard at work on Believe. Mixing, eq work and one guitar replay part tonight. And to top it off a left studio monitor that was causing problems. The monitor issue is resolved for the moment. But this little setback will cause the band to need one more mix session to finish the song. Trust us... It will be worth the wait!

Close - Almost There - Believe

Mix session happened last night in Red Light Masters Nation. Did we get the track done? Not quite yet. It's almost there. Vocals sound smooth! Great presets using Nectar 2. The eq settings and saturation settings really gel well together. There are 3 drums tracks that need editing yet, but those will just pop in automatically and then it's the final overall mix that we attack next.

Do you Believe… We sure Believe! Red Light Masters
