EXPL CVS- Shake That Feels (Eminem+N.Dogg+C.Harri

Post Wed Oct 31, 2018 11:42 am

Image
sources:
Eminem + Nate Dogg - Shake That (acapella)
Calvin Harris - Feels (instrumental)
It is a bit explicit. The intro sounds G-funky, that gave me the idea.

version 6 (thanks HCD for your review on Thu Jan 31, 2019 7:31 am (but maybe it was on an older version??)
New analysis tells me that pella is C#m, so I lowered the mental 3 semitones.
Because HCD started on Jurassic Park, I put a sample from that movie on the intro.

========================
to compare

version 5 (thanks Dra'man) I finally made an update to this mashup. I think the vocal placement is OK now, also added reverb.
Version 2 (Thanks Table + Legato for comments and tips)
Misunderstood you Table and put the pella two whole MEASURES to the back in version 2, to where it was in version zero.
Thanks DJ Legato for your 'start your project at 5.1 instead of 1.1' tip. I did that on this project and was able to easily pull the mental two measures (that should have been two beats) to the front. And with 'render as loop region' in Acid Pro, I get rid of the extra space at the front (that was my main reason for starting projects on 1.1).

version 1, 3, 4 and 5 are lost.

I really like it and it has a big potential, but I think you should try to shift the vocals 2 beats backwards like in the original version of Shake That.

This sounds good CVS, but i have to agree with TT on this one. The sync is off (or is that swing or groove in musical terms?)
It sounds like the pairing is alright with the key and all, but this may shift a bit when you move the sync (maybe)
Not sure how much you cut up the vocals, but moving the instrumental is maybe the easiest way to fix it ?
And a tip! that i tend to use, i always start my new project/mashup on the 5.1 or 9.1 marker in my daw, this way i have plenty of room to move around the sources to fix syncing problems or to make an intro etc. i never start on 1.1 :1wink:

Thanks @thetable and @legato for your comments and tips.
I was able to fix it in version 2 that is up in the orginal post.

hi CVS, i like the idea too
The structure & pella placement are uncorrect for me and Nate Dogg is OOk.
Sorry to be brutal but my english is basic and i go to the essential :1wink:

Thanks Draman for review, new version is in O.P.
I finally made an update. Also added reverb.
I think the vocals fit better now. I lost the version where the placement comments apply to
What do you think ?

The Eminem is great but the Nate is still OOK. :1cry:

By the way that Feels instrumental intro reminds me of this.

thanks HCD for the review and Jurassic idea.
I lowered the mental instead, thinking Eminem is monone enough to fit there as well.
new version in O.P.

It's the party section that's out of ket by at least 3 semitones. I like the idea but the keys are just too far apart for the pair to be workable.

Thanks HCD, I understand what (singing) part you mean with Nate Dogg
I found pellakey = C#m , to get there lowered mental in v6
I removed version 5 (the one from your previous comment).

Of course C#m can still be incorrect (making it an original difference of 3+3 semitones). I agree that is too much of a difference to correct. But I have got some good reactions to the original pairing in this thread.
Thanks for your review and time.
