Version 7 still missing the structure :1cry:

Something is not getting right around 1:17, it should be the second verse but you still continue with the chorus :1undecided:

Also, from 1:58 it sounds like you miss a beat or two like it was shifted with the syncope, this might affect the rest of the track cause the last chorus starts with "Can you blow my whistle..." around 2:57, this part should start a second or two before @2:54.

I played a bit with these 2 sources and I came with this suggestion:

(I will send you a PM with this demo :1wink: )

Try also to clean the pella as much as you can, I can still hear the empty parts from the vocals here and there.

thanks Smash for your enormous help with the picture and demo. It is good to see how 'clean' and simple it can be done, even in another DAW.
New version (8 = the fat lady :1laugh: ) is up in O.P.
Hope she sinks now.

So close now!

I'm hearing the vocals a little bit ahead of the beat around 2:30 and again at around 3:30.

thanks Satis5d for another review, I made the timing a tiny bit later on these two spots (and an earlier spot with the same vocal line). New version 9 is up in O.P.

The vocals run a little fast around 1:59 in the latest but the quick correct after a several seconds.


You are really sticking with this one huh? :1smiley: It's been like 5 months. I'm surprised your haven't punted. :1laugh: I'm recommending for you diehard attitude! :1cool:

Thanks Happy Cat for your recommend, I changed the vocal timing a bit around 1:59 in this mashup from the previous decennium.
Let's hope that a second mod approves. :1rolleyes:

Version 10 has a good structure, but for me, the issue is still the pella quality, I can't allow myself FP this with the current vocal quality, please forgive me :1cry:
Hopefully, you'll find a better pella version or another forgiving Mod :1wink:

Thanks HCD and Smash for your reviews and HCD for the recommend :1grin:
Did some last (version eleven) polishing of this DIY acapella (called 'studio') with tighter noise gate, send reverb to give it back some room, and limiter + widener to bring some body/punch back.
Also made mental louder and pella softer to make the vocal less obvious.
New version in O.P. (I deleted version 10 and some older ones because my Dropbox is filled to the brim).

Interesting to see "Whistle" popping up again. Didn't follow this in the past few months
as I was very busy in real life, but I'll try to be more active again.

I made my first steps in mashups with various mashups including "Whistle".
It's a perfect track to learn about timings.

The first 10 seconds with the "whistle baby" in the background are off beat to my ears.
At 0:09/0:10 when it starts, it's all fine. But the intro is off to my ears.
Try working on this a bit more and I might get weak. ;)

EDIT: I listened to that intro again and again and I think I might have been wrong with my first conclusion. It might have been the alcohol speaking out of me. lol. I'll listen again tomorrow when my head is clear again, and then I'll take my final decision. :1wink:

Thanks DJ Axcess for your new clean acapella, and you WERE right, so I corrected the intro, and put corrected version (12) with the new acapella is in original post.
