Maybe 80's-synth-vocoder-track

Post by deHaan » Mon May 31, 2010 10:08 pm

Hi there

I have just finished a new song, which is much more synthesizer based, than what I usually do. It is also my first track with vocoder.

http://www.bandbase.com/kravlegaarden/T ... igh-Heels/

What do you guys think about the song and the mix? I think it's hard to get the vocoder to fit well into the mix, any ideas?

Best regards Nikolaj

I won't be able to help you with the mix...everything sounded good to me. Not sure if it was 80s but either way it was really cool.

Okay, thank you :) Can your hear what the vocoder is "saying"? It's a bit hard for me to judge, because I know the lyrics...

Actually, no :D No you cannot.

Not everything anyway. Some words that stand on their own come through a lot better.

But it's just the nature of vocoded tracks I think. I was recently listening to Flaming Lips, one of the newer tracks has vocoder and I'm assuming it's all professionally mixed, but you can't understand shit :D
But noone complains because it's so bad ass...take that as a compliment

I like it a lot man, it actually gave me a few ideas on things i can incorporate into my own tracks. I like how the drums fade in rather than out. For some reason i have never thought to do that! Sounds good big ups
