[FP] CVS - It Ain't Me Whistle (Flo Rida + Kygo + Gomez)

Post Tue Sep 24, 2019 9:50 am

sources:
Florida - Whistle (filtered acapella) C maj - 103,96 bpm (used in v1-11)
Flo Rida - Whistle (acapella) (used in v12)
Kygo + Selena Gomez - It Ain't Me (instrumental) C maj - 100 bpm (used this in v1-v7)
Kygo + Selena Gomez - It Ain't Me (official instrumental) C maj - 100 bpm (for v8,9,10,11,12)

Danke DJ Axcess for your review on version 11, and your better pella
You were right, beer is the proof that God loves us and wants us to speak the truth.
My 'overlay in the intro of another part' was indeed too early (two beats). I corrected this, cut off first part of my sample, made fade-in smoother and put a micro timing edit in around 0:06.
With your new pella I remade the mashup, and killed the noisegate and MB-compressor on the vocal. Maybe even Smash will now soften up haha :1wink:
In Holland we have a saying for something that is very easy to do, translated as "it is a whistle of a penny". This combo proves not to be one (for me :1rolleyes: ).
important lesson: always find the best sources BEFORE starting your mashup-project.

to compare, older versions below:
Thanks Smash for your review on version 10 (now deleted)
This DIY whistle acapella is the only full length one I can find.
I had high EQ filter on vocal, because I thought your problem with it was hiss. I now removed this filter.
Changed noise gate from -22,2 to -17,5 (so cutting more delay out) and slightly longer release.
Softened the 'offending' vocal, and made mental slightly louder, and put Limiter and some widening on vocal to get back some of the volume and punch.
Added my usual Omni reverb to put Flo Rida more in (background of) the mix. Adds some stereo.

thanks Happy Cat Disco for your recommend on version 9, I changed the vocal timing a bit around 1:59 (millisecondes later) and put up version 10. (DELETED)

thanks Satis5d for another new review on version 8
I changed the timing on the mentioned spots to a tiny bit later (milliseconds)

thanks SMASH for your review and demo on version 7
The demo and picture helped me a lot.
Because of the tracktitle in your project-picture I found a new, about 30 seconds longer instrumental with another structure on Youtube and I used that.
Cut out vocal part before first chorus (from after 'here we go' until 'I am betting') like in your demo, this brings the first verse to the front of the mashup
Also I changed some things to differ from your demo:
- Put last two parts of vocal outro over the intro, with volume automation for a fade-in.
- Doubled a vocal part (about 1:18 - 1:34) and made a repeat-edit (baby baby baby) in there.
- Noisegate on vocal (settings: -22,2 dB treshold, attack time 8 ms, release time 540 ms).
- Extra bass on mental (about 2,8 dB lowshelf below 250 Hz).
- left out the 'it ain't me' ending from previous versions.

thanks Sats5d for your new review on version 6
I had to redo the mashup because I mixed up projectfilenames.
Less delay and repeats, cut out a part of the pella and cut off the ending.
version 7: deleted

Thanks Sats5d for your review on version 4
Moved the vocal placement around 2:09 like you mentioned Satis5d.
Return of the delay-track. More delay just before 2:09.
Mental is edited at 0:22 (xfade) and 1:00 (cut)
Put in video ending of Selena singing 'it ain't me' followed by Flo's 'let me go'

thanks Smash for your review on version 3, yeah I see now it is a mirror of your earlier mashup
version 4:
- moved vocal placement back about 4-5 seconds
- EQ on vocal (less bass below 250 and less very high and Sony Noisegate nr. 2
- cut out blank spaces in vocal to get rid of artifacts, and to match pella to changes in mental
- switched the mental to 'one shot'
- volume changes on vocal and send-reverb on that
- cut out echo effects completely, gave more mental outro to let cut off vocal 'breathe'.

Thanks for your review HCD on version 2
I took out some parts of pella to make it fit the mental better.
Kickdrum should start now 'everywhere' on can-you-blow-my-WHIS-tle-baby.
Fade in on pella to introduce the (I know...) very early vocal start.
I cut most of the echoes but there is still some Camelspace Echo VST on a seperate track on the 'here we go'. Had to kill the last 'here we go'.
I believe there is some syncopation going on now with Flo Rida.

version 2:
Lots of Camelspace echo on Flo' on a seperate track.

I like the pairing but I'm missing the structure. I think the verse / chorus needs to be closer between the two songs.

Remind me one of mine :1tongue:
http://www.mashstix.com/005486

Version 3 still missing the structure, at least at the very beginning, and it might affect the rest of the track.
In both original songs, the vocals first introduced around 0:09, so I think it might help if you can use the whistles as they apears in the original "Whistle" song.
In addition, you are using a DIY acapella, you can hear it well in the first part. Try to clean it more, if you can, or at least remove the empty parts between the singing :1undecided:

Thanks Smash, I moved the vocal placement to the back, and also cut out 'blanks' from the vocal track to get rid of the artifacts and put a noisegate (and EQ) on vocal, see new version in original post.

It's mostly working now, but the rails start to fall off around 2:09 with the structure. Maybe wait a bit to bring the vocals in so that they fit right in that section.

You definitely solved the problem at 2:09. Nicely done. :1grin:
Now I'm hearing a similar problem at around 1:10. Was it like that before?
