Authors' Notes

Quick song, slightly thrown together. Not possible without Rez and its excellent arp presets, helix and its excellent presets and vocal correction!! :):) (And loops)
Just have to submit. Luckily the programs are doing most of the work. I was going to use all of directionless's lovely lyrics but I just don't have the time right now.

haha yes! those lyrics gave you the cheese you needed. Very nice. Like the arps too.

Oh man! You're really hitting your stride here lately Paul. I'm loving this. Possibly my favourite I've heard from you. Smooth and emotional. I can feel it pouring out. The bassline is awesome, simple beauty. Too bad it's so unfinished feeling. Basically, you need to keep working on this and make it a full song.
Awesome awesome :-D

Pleasant music, nice voice part, maybe drums plays little bit silently (it probably because I like drum-lines more than any other), but in general I like this track. Good work, ambtax1.

loved the lullaby-esque echo-ey beginning. very lovely chord sequence, and vocal harmonies. i like the snare that came in about 5/8 of the way through, and the ending was lovely. all in all very emotive and beautiful.

the vocals sound a little Sting-like, but they seem not to be fully in sync at some positions. I assume you used the Renoise xdxx effect to adust it. And I think this technique doesn't work very well. It's to unprecise and unhandy. I wrote a feature request to the Renoise development team to support pure waveform channels and audio clips like those that DAWs (Cubase...) have. With that you could adjust your vocal clips precisly. They answered that it is planned to integrate this feature in the future. So there's hope ;-)

Ok.. back to your song: I really like the melody. It's really nice. The bass is a bit underrepresented. Maybe instead of using the stereo expander you should use channel paning. That would create more room for the bass in the center.

All in all a cool song and I like that vocals are integrated. This inspires me to try something similar.

Vocals sang into renoise and altered with melodyne/decca buddy. Timing is DEFINITELY an issue. If anyone knows how to get audio recording/timing right in renoise (don't quite understand
the sound card and latency issues???)

.....let me know :) Will comment on others soon....cheers

Airmann - That is awesome, I really do hope they implement that feature. It will really bridge the gap and make Renoise a truly professional program.

Paul - not sure what you are talking about there with soundcard/latency, because you end up triggering the vocals at the right part in the pattern anyway. So latency shouldn't matter. And of course you can adjust the timings with Melodyne :) (Which I did heavily with Summer Angel because she sang it so loose with the rhythm)

Nice elements in this unfinished song, you should definitely complete it! Good singing and chords progression. I like the beat change and the solo lead at 2/3 of the song, Vocals should return hereafter off course :).
