[FP] Pick Up The Magic! Bruno Mars Vs. Average White Band

Post Tue Jan 14, 2020 11:40 pm

I did loads of things to get this mix absolutely perfect, I shall break it down as quick as I can.
-Added Slapback Delay to Bruno's vocal plus the Talkbox and Backing Vocals.
-Duplicated the various vocals and panned them multiple directions as that is what they did in the 70s doubling the vocals and panning the direction of said vocals.
-Added Plate Reverb to Bruno's Vocals and Talkbox Vocals.
-Removed the 24KM intro talkbox.
-Made the vocals as dry I could.
-Thanks to CVS for the critique help and suggestions I messaged him via Soundhaws.
Comment and Critique once you get the chance!

The mix is good! I think it needs some phrasing work to pull this off though. The only way to do this would be to edit the instrumental to match the vocals phrasing instead of a direct overlay as it is now. I would keep it short though, perhaps not the full 3 minutes or 2 and a half. This is going to be a tough one. You really pick em RayMan. :1smiley:

I wouldn't even know where to start as I haven't really put together a source with no vocals with another source that has them, Maybe you could PM me a custom mixdown of this mashup so I would get a better idea.

I spent some time chopping up the mental first thing I did was remove the breakdown section you know the 24 KARAT 24 KARAT MAGIC! That section was removed to cut down on the time as HCD said in a previous post you don't want the mix to drag on for too long or people will obviously lose interest, I looped some parts shortly before the chorus to add sort of a buildup of some kind then that long horn as soon as Bruno sings the word AIIRRRR, Sometimes the horn didn't fall on the right beat so additional editing had to be done. I think I did a great job looping this, I have played around with instrumentals but kind of never had to literally make my own Verse section and Chorus section and so forth and so on! Comment and Critique once you get the chance! Sorry for the book!
Bruno's Vocal was also chopped up to make it fit in the appropriate and various points in the AWB Mental.

Well I tried in V2 to make a short version but it was a little to short and it didn't capture the magic of V1 that well no pun intended, So I went back to the drawing board with CVS and he helped me craft what would become V3, The vocal phrasing has been fixed, So comment and critique once you get the chance! Personally I think V3 is leagues better than the previous two however if you want a shorter radio edit than V2 will obviously be for you.
