Progressive Rock Recording - "Against the Tide"
After literally 100s of songs I am narrowing down some for my 3rd album. I have never publicly released any of these; that'll be the next step. I've experimented around with a lot of different sounds, so I don't consider this song representative of everything I have done, but it would be great to hear back from others. It's so hard to tell how things will sound on all the different systems (and even various models of professional monitors).
I originally started on Cool Edit Pro 1.2a, then progressed to Adobe Audition 1.5 and Cakewalk Music Creator. Since then I have tried Sonar 5 and 6 as well, and of course, Ardour. There are still some features I would like to see, but all of them have already been addressed and are in the works for future versions.
Anyway, drums are from Hydrogen, synth effects are from Rosegarden using Soundfont 2 banks, Ardour for tracking, and a few commercial plugins that I have yet to find in LADSPA. Guitars are using a Digitech Pedal utilizing the cabinet simulator, and going straight in to my mixer inputs. Enjoy!
