[FP] CVS - Shape of Your Sister (Train vs. Ed Sheeran)

sources:
Ed Sheeran - Shape of You (instrumental) C#m
Train - Hey Soul Sister (acapella) C#m

version 1:
Some delay on vocal in the sparse intro, reverb-tail on the outro.
Drinking a lot of beer ruins your shape, as I have found out from experience.

version 2: thanks Secondchance and MashGyver for comments on version 1
Lowered volume and amount of send-delay in intro.
Corrected two timings Secondchance mentioned,
Later fixed complete vocal placement by editing the mental.
Using more of the orchestra stabs, and put them 'everywhere' under the chorus. At the end, for variation I used another part (like in v1). Kept the triple Ed-guitartap-edits @3:27

version 3: thanks Happy Cat Disco and Satis5d for comments on version 2
I moved the vocal from 3:30 a tiny bit earlier in version 3.

Awesome combo! I love hearing mashups between major and minor keys. The only improvements that I would suggest are tightening up the vocals at 0:50 and 2:40 where they fall a little behind, and to tone down the echo a bit in the intro. I like the effect it gives, but it's a little jarring when the main vocals start after the echoes.

Agreed! One of your better combos!

The structure could maybe use a little cleanup (e.g. around 1:10 the orchestra stab sounds come in midway through the Train chorus, which was a little weird, and then the second verse continued over them until around 1:50 when the instrumental strips back down to just the glockenspiel (or whatever it is :1smiley: ) which also happen "mid-verse.” It’s possible you have your reasons for the way it is, but I found it a bit off-putting myself.

I do love the pause at 2:27 before the “tonight.” That worked out well. But I think a little bit of instrumental editing could go a long way...

I have not been granted the authority to frontpage your mashup, but I can't imagine it'll be too long before others do that. I can however tell you that I'm planning on playing this on my radio show this weekend. Nice job!

I was so close to giving this the Front-page treatment, but then I heard from 3:30 to the end and it sounds just a little bit late. Tidy that up and I'm all-in! :1cool:
