CVS -Angel Affair (MARCO J. Blige vs. Shaggy)

Post Wed Jan 09, 2019 9:20 am

Image
sources:
Shaggy - Angel [in the morning] (instrumental) (extended by me)
Mary J. Blige - Family Affair (Acapella) (extended, some cutups and repeats)
originally from: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5xSlZjghdE8

Thanks SgtMash, new research seems to point to:
mental = F# major, so D#minor (relative)
pella = G#minor, lowered 5 semi's with Elastique Pitch 2 (instead of my usual Acid Pro).
Now sounds like her brother 'Marco' and his friends from the All Male Choir joined in.
Intro is still unaltered Mary herself.
At 2:22 it sounds very strange to me...

I really like the idea. However, for me unfortunately this sounds ook in various parts. I don't really think these songs will work well together... :1undecided:
There is also a timing problem starting at ~1:09 which you could fix easily.
But let's see what others think. :1wink:

Bit spooky Oooky, but I like the syncopation between the instru & vocal... idk if it's fixable, but sounds 5th'y which along with the backing vocals baked in may make it a big ask to try spot fix.

Call in MashGyver for encouragement or a gentle let-down maybe...

One last thought - Steve Miller Band Ogg stems are out there - pretty much the same riff/hook/track, but more tuneable/ may be wortha quick listen/look xx

oh no I was too slow :1laugh:

Thanks SgtMash for your compliment on the syncopation, made a new version, now in the O.P.
Also changed the cover-art, as it now sounds like her (imaginary) brother.

I think the keys are working. I'm having a hard time with the vocal quality. Could be my headphones but the vocals sound very low quality. I need another mod to listen to this on a decent set of can or speakers.

thanks HCD for you reviewing time (again)
I put up a link to the youtube source of Family Affair (acapella)
As I used the source from hard disk, maybe it has been changed (by me), but it sounds like a vinyl rip, not a lot of noise, but some 'ticks' and scratches. Maybe you mean that with quality ?
The backing vocals are VERY wide in the stereo (so much that I thought of narrowing it down).

All my conversion back then was by online video converter (I think now), or maybe I got it as a rip from VK.com when VK-pirate downloader used to work. SO there could be a difference af well.
Oh, those where the days, just search for 'acapella' and see what the (mostly) Russians had with THAT in the title...)

Today I used www.easy-youtube-mp3.com to convert.

No, it's not the records. It's out of key by several semitones.
