Rob Balder came over the other night to sing the vox track for another FuMP tune, “Needlessly Noir”. It was a little anti-climactic, since I was really hoping I could show off the multi-take recording and quick-swipe comping that I can do now in Logic. But of course he nailed it in a single take after one measly warmup pass. So we monkeyed around with some keyboard, but threw those tracks away because it “added something musically, but didn’t add anything comedically.”
Ideally we would have timestretched Janny’s vox and written them out with some reverb or compression on them, but I didn’t know how to do that yet, so we let it go.
Listen to Black Box, my newest song about software testing.
It has 4 tracks: vox, guitar with the shaker egg, straight rhythm guitar, and djembe. I’d like to have added more vox tracks and bass, but enough was enough in terms of time. I’m actually pretty happy with the way it sounds. I sent all the tracks through a bus with the Logic Space Designer reverb on it, and did nothing to it other than turn down the intensity. Then I compressed the shit out of the djembe and vox, and put some EQ on the shaker guitar to turn down the really cutting highs.
This was my first use of the multi-take recording feature in Logic and it really kicks ass.
