(FP)[EXPL]My Dougie Is On Fire (Cali Swag+Bruce Springsteen)

sources:
Cali Swag District ft. Michelle Obama (see art) - Teach Me How To Dougie (acapella) E major
Bruce Springsteen - I'm On Fire (instrumental) E major 89 bpm
My two favorite Bruce songs both have 'fire' in their titles. And I love the Dougie rap.
Some dirty or dubious words ('burner' phone?).

Thanks Satis5d for you recommend and Dra'man for your remark on version 3.
Dra'man was right, there was a lot of bass missing. What I changed in version 4:
- more volume for mental tracks (four of them, because of the edit @1:07,5 and L+R split)
- more bass on these channels (+4 dB Low shelf below 250 Hz)
- way less volume for vocal (down from -2,0 dB to -10,0 dB!) and sendreverb
- compensated for this with (free) Voxengo Tube Amp VST (preset: Master Maximizer) on just the vocal track, to get it more 'upfront'/cutting through.

to compare, older version(s) below

version 3:
Thanks Satis5d for your review on version 2.
- replaced Multi Tap delay in v1 with splitting mental in L+R on separate channels with slight delay of Right track, this makes Left channel seem louder and compensated for that with 0.4 dB lower volume.
- extended the mental at a later point in the mashup.
- after split, took out a number of the small (milliseconds) timing corrections in pella
- gainstaging: much higher volume for rap, much lower volume for the mental-tracks, kept send reverb channel low as well to keep pella from 'moving to the back of the stage'.
- Fletcher Munson (= loudness) EQ-curve on the vocal, but with a not-so-deep EQ-dip around 4.000 Hz as in the original Acid-preset.
- put the art and mental on dropbox instead of Sowndhaus. Maybe Sowndhaus does something to the sound that the Mashstix-MP3-player does not like ?

download-v4

version 2: (version 1 was not published)
- varispeeded rap up, put rap outro in the intro, reverb on the new outro (hello SgtMash!)
- used bars 2-16 from mental twice, Sony Multi Tap delay to stereo-ize this karaoke version.
- small timing corrections on the pella,

I like the combination, but the mastering quality isn't up to your usual high standards. :1undecided:

Dramatic improvement on the mastering. :1smiley:

It's a bit repetitive, but I like the vibe, so I recommend.

Thanks Dra'man, I lowered the vocal volume a lot and upped the mental (bass)volume, there is much more body now in the total mix, I think that is what you missed :1wink: , see comments and new version in O.P. (original post).
