"marco polo (4-21-10)2.m4a"

played with the drums a little to make them less robotic

added some "video game samples" that are really just a bitcrushed 909

added a little vocal clarity?

rachel if i can get clean vox from you that would be amazazazing. i like the distorted sound, but it would be nice to play with it to give the vocals more movement. it also limits how clean or loud me and fred can be cause we really shouldnt overpower you

just uploaded "marco (metal guitar).m4a"

before i had 2 copies of the same rhythm guitar part playing throughout, with the 2nd one turning on and off in different parts. this new version has 2 rhythm guitars throughout both playing different things. the one on the right kinda follows the drums more and makes it more dancy, but then in the middle section it follows rachels original guitar and does a kinda black metal strummy thing.

yay or nay? i think it adds dancability and heaviness which is always a good combination in my book

(dont mind the sloppiness, i just wanted to get the idea recorded)


..oh, and that party sample is just there as a place filler, seems like a good spot for a sample, but probably not a party one

new "marco polo 5-11"

tried to liven the drums up a little, not really sure if it worked.

do an A/B comparison with the last mix

i broke the drum track apart into individual drums and started mix/matching drums from different kits

the snare is still kinda bothering me....

i need to make my vocals more post-punk and less b52s

i dont know why, but somehow thats a fine line

maybe i just need to think more about the impending doom of the cold war while i sing and less about geological crustaceans

i want to make it sounds a little more 70s and a little less hiphoppy

kind of like a "come together" tonality

marco polo 7-18

refined version of acoustic version

transition to first electric guitar part might need a little work
