Hey, lots of talk about these 220 some odd tracks and there is some explaining to do I thinks. The actual project track count is 226 tracks. However many of those are vertical take(s) or stacks. For instance there are the sung “I don’t wanna love nobody but You” parts. Those mainly consist of 3 tracks. 2 on pitch and 1, a harmony track +5st higher. Yet it was produced from perhaps 9-20 takes, that were spread across each location. Each take went to a seperate track. Suffice to say, that was a lot of tracks right there for just that phrase or phrase(s). Mind you on my end when I record takes I may have 10-20 takes per track, in which case I call each take a “lane”. It can be thought of as similar in nature to having multiple tracks in one. Confused yet? I am… LOL
While getting our mugs on camera might be cool. I am camera shy and dislike plastering my mug on the Internet these days. It no longer is the innocent, warm, fuzzy place it once was. Sadly, to me there are bad actors out there that want to take advantage of you and information about you. My daughter NaNa is very photogenic and I would love to film her for videos. But she won’t do it for the very reason I relate to. Maybe someday I will post a guitar only vid for ya. I did post one on my YouTube site. See “Friday night jam with Lbro”; on my channel. Better hurry though as I may take that down…
All the best, thanks for stopping by and do take good care Gordon!
LBro and his compadres back at it, that was really cool and seeing that you took a song performed by Gwen Stefani really surprised me in a good way! Over 220 tracks well our cover of GFTNC was easy peasy then for you to sort out, man that Reaper file must have been like >1GB large! All the best spotless production and really enjoyed it
Glad this one caught your fancy mate! This is my hobby, so the track count, spread out over time was not too bad to deal with. I was more worried the thing would crap out and corrupt the project when it crashed. Thankfully that never happened!
Wow the three of you have blown this one out of the park! Excellence in every one of the eye watering 200+ tracks. Gorgeous singing, gorgeous playing of guitars and musical, masterly midi tracks. LB the work, time, patience and attention to detail you give your projects shows in every aspect of this superb production. I reckon the Russian would be very impressed.
Gwen was just along for the ride Adie. Blake was the guy I was after on this on. Yeah, you are right on the track count being more sain on the collab we worked on together! Reaper project files are small. What is not small is the project folder. With all the backup and undo files, I had over 25GB… Once I nuked the 2 file types out of the project folder it went under 5GB.
Thanks for your great comments and all the best mate!
