STOPPED - CVS Do U Really Want 2 Regulate Me

Post Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:59 am

stopped working on this mashup, unfixable.

sources:
Nate Dogg + Warren G - Regulate (instrumental + acapella) (based on: Keep Forgettin' - Michael McDonald)
Culture Club - Do You Really Want To Hurt Me (acapella)
sample from movie The Princess Bride (= Saul Berensen from Homeland)

version 3 - thanks DJ Dumpz for your review
Started the Nate Dogg sample @3:41 one sentence earlier, and cleaned up the outro.
Amount of 'send' to reverb channel is now even over the track.
Tried to smoothe the vocal more with Autotune, but it was horrible.

==================
version 2 - Thanks Dra'man for your tips.
I reused 'make me cry' from 1:58 again @2:10 and in the new echoed outro @4:19 + @4:24
Reused another 'make me cry' from 3:29 -> @3:39 and new echoed outro @4:09 + 4:21 + 4:26
Cut out the 4:11 'make me cry' to make some room.
And put in acapella of Nate Dogg and Warren G @1:00, @2:10, @3:41, @4:24 (overlap in outro)
Moved the movie sample @1:05 so that it now refers to 'regulate' from the mashuptitle.
Plus small stutter edit @2:21

Hi CVS, i like the idea. the "make me cry" at 2'10, 3'43, 4'11 & 4'20 are OOK. IMO, i think you should copy & paste another one "make me cry" :1wink:

The mental is a little bit repetitive, maybe you could use some parts of the original track :1huh: ?

Funky mash. I like v2! :1smiley:
Nearly sounds like an original to me. There are only a few blue notes here and there but they don't bother me that much. Well done.

Thanks DJ Dumpz for your compliment, I understood your blue notes as between 1/4 and 1/2 semitone off target (like a bend on guitar string) and tried to fix this in the vocal with Autotune, but that was horrible.
Corrected a placement-mistake in the rap-sample @3:41 in version 3, that is now in the OP.

Yeah, it's just not a 100% harmonic all the time but it's by far no show stopper. I think v3 ist nice and you should keep it as it is if auto tune makes it sound horrible. :1grin:

I agree with the other on this. Not sure it can be fixed because the really issue is a harmonic progression issue not a key issue. Some times songs have such different harmonic directions that its hard to pair even in the same key.
