Truman Sparks on the stereo
So I was listening to the new CD from Truman Sparks this morning, and trying to come up with a theory about how something had gone slightly wrong in the mixing booth -- based on how great and together the music is, but how some of the vocals sound like they were poorly overdubbed -- but before I work on that theory any more, I just want to point out that the final track, "Enter TROG", is just magnificent. Everything about it is right on. (And that is billed as a remix, so clearly the producer had something on the ball.) And, because my CD player was on repeat, the next song was track 1, and I noticed all over again what a great opening the record has, until a minute or two in when the vocal strangeness kicks in.
Duly noted on the vocal mixing. We'll re-visit that for sure.
Thanks for digging the remix. Our bassist Jon Hampton was the
mastermind on that.
I couldn't quite tell -- is track 6 a remix of the same recording
that is track 5? Because some things sound different in a way that
I didn't realize could be done in the mixing booth, like
specifically the chorus vocals sound much fuller -- like a larger
group were singing or better singers.
Hm. Track 6 was mostly from scratch, with some sampling of "The
Chronicles of Trog" off the first CD. The vocals were indeed done
in multiple tracks overlayed, with many people singing/yelling.
Yeah ok, that makes more sense then. Thanks.
