I write dream pop and some singer songwriter. My new mentor has said I need to start playing out and connecting with audiences. So, which do I follow? Play just me and a guitar out there, OR break out the iPad, load it with stems in Multitracker, and pretty much karaoke the dreampop stuff?
Im not talking about the strings, im talking about this descending plucky thing, idk what that is.
I thought it was something like a handpan but its definitely not. Im pretty sure that its some kontakt library and not an actual recording (if it is an instrument lol). So if anyone knows what it is and what specific library that would possibly be, id be very thankful. I really love the mechanical noise/pluckiness of it.
I have no place to record vocals without sound bouncing of the walls. But theoretically if I had a field, no walls equal no reverb right? I use a at4040 and am wondering if I record in a field if it will be equivalent to a booth or treated room. If this works will my vocals be so dry to the point where the range of my vocals are lost?
There seems to be a lot of overdubbing, chorus/flanger, and panning on the guitars. Drums are very upfront but I can't seem to figure out what's going on with the vocals... sounds like a stack of three maybe with track delay on one and one? Any insight is appreciated! Thank you!
