My entry from Mash-Off #73. I figured it would have lost to SMASH’s entry, but I threw it in the hat anyway. There are some quirks I can already hear need fixing, but let’s hear what y’all have to say...

I love the combo! :1grin:
From 1:00-1:08 Aretha sounds like she's ahead of the beat and getting faster.
The same things seems to happen leading up to 3:41.
Just before and around 3:00 she might be a bit ahead as well.

Otherwise, I am prepared to recommend this one.

Duuude this is a cool combo!

I wasn't around the time of the competition but certainly would have considered giving this my vote :1grin:

I'm with Satis5d in regards to the vocals; maybe they need a good thorough warp if the original had a variable speed. I also think this has a cool opportunity for a remix, though I'm moving PCs so without any software at the moment :1undecided: maybe once I get ableton up and running we can collab on a remixed version?

If you have a moment to adjust the vocals then that would be ideal, now as I check the site every few days I'll just go ahead and recommend it with the knowledge that one of the team will FP if you can make the small adjustment :1smiley:

Okay. Version 1 is up with some timing fixes, among other subtle mix stuff I tweaked. I was hoping to do something more with the album art too, but I just don’t have the time right now. So, I hope this covers all the issues...

@DJFirth - Thanks for the high praise! Let me know when you’re ready and we can certainly talk about the remix! :1grin:

Version 1 is a definite improvement. It's not lock-step with the beat, but I see what you're doing there. The Queen of Soul would not allow herself to be locked to the beat for an entire song, so there are places where she must be set free to show some "soul." In those previous trouble-spots, I feel that you've captured this essence of the Queen very well.

However, I will delay putting this on the FP for a few days to give others an opportunity to agree or disagree with my assessment.

Yes, you are correct. As the vocals come from a percapella, I had to preserve Aretha’s "soulful timing" to some degree to keep the beats together. Version 2 is up. I tightened up a few more spots this time…hope there are no more rough patches.
