[Ambient] Sound Like Waves (mp3) Vocals, guitar & electr

SOUND LIKE WAVES

This is another song I've composed using a combo of vocals, guitar and mod tracker.

http://www.bluebloomer.com/blains_music/blain_hosford_sound_like_waves.mp3

First I compose using guitar and voice. Then I build the basic mod track. Then record vocals and guitar before importing them into mod tracker. Then I layer it all up and get it sounding how I want. Lots of subtle piano, distant sounds, strings etc.

gosh this is great!

imho this is perfect and a nice combination of tools.

Do you play and sing consistent enough to keep the audio a whole track or do you sample it?

Thank you for listening.

The vocals were recorded as 2 parts, one for each verse.
Generally I do lots of takes and then choose what I like best.
Guitar was recorded as one take from start to finish.

Guitar and vocals are mixed as one full length track. I then use a tool to slice audio tracks into samples which import into mod tracker. And then I create a track as 1 instrument with the samples. The final mix is not done in mod tracker, but what I hear in mod tracker is very close to the final.
