Nothing deep this time, just a song about being too shy to ‘plight one’s troth’, as they say. Technical notes:
The drum track was made using Toontrack’s EZ Drummer, starting with library beats which I then tweaked. I programmed the bass MIDI part from scratch, with sounds provided by IK Multimedia’s SampleTank 3. I used PG Music’s Band In A Box to make the initial electric piano and organ MIDI parts, which I then tweaked. Sounds for these were then from Steinberg’s Halion Sonic 3 (electric piano) and IK Multimedia’s SampleTank 3 (organ). I used a BIAB Real Track (i.e. audio, not MIDI) for the rhythm guitar part which you can hear panned right.
I provided the guitar solo using my Epiphone Flying V and Scuffham’s S-Gear 2 guitar processor plugin. Vocals were done using my usual RØDE NT2 mic, with some sweetening (EQ, compression, reverb) done using Cakewalk’s Pro Channel tools. I sang the two-part chorus harmonies and used Celemony’s Melodyne to make corrections as necessary. I used iZotope’s VocalSynth2 for the ‘vocoder’ vocal effect.
