I'm amazed how well this works out. One thing though, I found Frankie's acapella to be grating coming in at 0:05, either due to the quality effect of it being pitched down or the harmonic mismatch with the Ghostbuster siren intro. IMO I would suggest either to remove it or if you want to keep it in, try adding a decent amount of reverb to it.

Other than other, ghost on! :1grin:

Agreed it was clashing at the beginning, so I mostly cut it, but kept a bit with some verb on it.

Frankie Says Call Ghostbusters!

Love this. The key gap (5 semitones I think) is a bit of a stretch, and it’s a bit noticeable, but for the most part I think you’ve pulled it off.

The use of the stems and the interpolation of the Frankie vocals is masterful, but more importantly, this is just a lot of good clean 80’s fun!

Some possible fine-tuning: Maybe I’m just overzealous when it comes to reverb these days, but I feel like all the vocals could use a touch more. And a touch of Chorus on the FGTH maybe to cover up some of those pitching artifacts, and maybe a boost in some high frequencies for some clarity...

In my head they were in key :1smiley: but when I tried it there was the 5th issue. I had stems for both so I split the difference and soldiered on.

For version 2, I went with heavy chorus for FGTH because it sounded cool, and then I eq-d up the high end a bit. For both FGTH and RPJ I added some reverb to the vocals.
