I have a certain song that created 6-7 years ago on my old
Yamaha DB50XG daughterboard. The original version is only
DB50 and Cakewalk. I believe 3.0.
I used a synth that sounded much like a violin in the original. I can’t seem
to find any sample that is similar. I will try tweaking some VSTs later
for the right sound. Did find a nice bass guitar VST instrument for remake.
I ended up changing the drums a half dozen times. I still think they
sound a little bit off. They are standard 909s. Are the drum samples
off or too sparse in the mix?
Original sound really had no emphasis whatsoever on percussion. There
is a cool sweeping snare that is nice and just some short kick and a bongo type sound. Non-standard stuff. This time I used normal drums and
I don’t like it. I know about the noteoff in the wrong place at around
a minute and 40 seconds! hehe
Any “constructive” advice would be greatly appreciated. I would like to
just use the original, but the quality isnt the best and thought I would
make a newer verison in renoise.
I spent about 2-3 hours on the remake.
