This is an original tune I wrote for my wife several years ago, in the meantime it has taken on a life of it's own and I've sang it at a few weddings and funerals. A good friend asked me to do an original song at his upcoming wedding so I pulled up the original tracks and did a fix and remix in Mixbus 2.0.7 because I wanted to revitalize it a bit and have a better demo.
The main new recorded stuff is the rhythm acoustic guitar and a few vocal fixes because I changed the lyrics. Sadly the guitars used in the original track are no longer with me...a Gretsch Tennessee Rose for the electric bits and a really nice cherry Guild acoustic for the guitar solo that belongs to a brother-in-law. The Guild was like wrestling a gator to play but man did it project well with a nice tone !
The drums were done on my old Turtle Beach Pinnacle sound card with custom sample libraries I recorded myself and loaded into it's onboard RAM. The upright bass, cello etc. are from the onboard Kurzweil MA-1 chipset on the Pinnacle as well. Not bad sounds for a 1997 ISA sound card!
Plugins used were the Richard Furse Simple Delay Line and linuxDSP Channel dynamics on the vocals, I warmed up the imported mix of the MIDI instruments with the linuxDSP mkii EQ and the Calf Saturator. On the Master buss were the linuxDSP SRB2 Reverb, the linuxDSP PEQ-2A Equalizer, Barry's Satan Maximizer and finally the Calf Stereo Tools for a little widening.
