sources:
Snoop Dogg + Dr. Dre - Nuthin' but a G-thang (acapella) C# major
Ed Sheeran - Happier (acoustic guitar) instrumental C major

version 2
I pitched the mentioned second syllables (-by, -zy, me) each 1 semi up.
Also pitched ba-, cra- and pays different.

to compare two loopable versions of the changed 10 second part

version 1:
Varispeeded Ed up to C# major and 93,37 bpm, extended intro with repeat-edit and extra edit on guitarstrum (around 0:10,5) to make it less repetitive :1grin: .
Some stereowidening (125%) on mental, sendreverb on vocal (between 500 and 15.000 Hz).
Cut out a high pitched vocal at the end (that was a repeat anyway) and replaced that with a Sony simple delay on 'chill till the next episode', then returning to original vocal outro.
A number of timing fixes on vocal, that is now chillier, happier and campfirier. Ed definitely likes his hiphop.

Hey CVS,

great work on this one. I love it. I was listening to it on loop here for 20 minutes
and there is just one minor thing that bothers me a bit.

At 0:27 "baaaaBE", at 0:30 "craaaZY" and at 0:32 "paaaceMENT" they sound off key
in the second part of the words, might just be a little nudge on that transpose button. ;)

Sorry for being extremely nitpicking lately, I've been listening through a few Rock Wars
preview tracks I got sent lately and I am trying to listen very in-depth.

Usually this wouldn't hold me back from frontpaging the track, as otherwise it's definitely nice.

If you're in the mood to give it a try on these parts, feel free. I'd appreciate it. ;)
I'll re-think if I am too nitpicking this time. I might just go ahead and frontpage it.
I'll think about it. :)

Cheers
Chris

Thanks DJAxcess and TheRayman, I pitched the three mentioned second syllables 1 semi up. For some reason they were 'offending', so I lowered their volume as well, and made them come in slightly later.

ba - same volume, same place, one semi down (!)
by - 1,4 dB softer, very tiny bit later, one semi up

cra - 0,4 dB softer, same place, same pitch
zy - 1,0 dB softer, very tiny bit later, one semi up

pays- same volume, same place, two (!) semi up
me - 1,6 dB softer, same place, one semi up

New full version (with 'pays '2 semi up) is in O.P.
Also two loopable :1grin: parts, one with 'pays' 2 semi up, the second with pays 1 semi down.

That's it, CVS! Perfect work!
I can't hear anything else bothering me now.

Up to the FRONTPAGE you go!

PS: for some reason the frontpage didn't accept your cover art and is showing black only.
I'll contact Paul to hopefully get that fixed for me. :)

And sorry again for being so picky. :)
