POST by Scott Loyd 10/21/2004

How can I feel so cold?
I never knew I'd feel so sad
In this barren desert land
Feel so cold

I never knew I'd Make you mad
How can I Feel so cold
I never knew I'd feel so sad
Feel so cold

I never knew I'd Make you mad
How can I Feel so cold
In this barren desert land

And please don't go
And don't leave me alone
And please don't go
And don't leave me alone

11:05 pm - Media and Informational Update
Time to do a quick update. Sorry it has been so long since we have put any thing up here. I have been traveling around the country for work and haven't had much time for personal internet stuff.

When I'm back in Phoenix I have been working on the album and Rex has been coming over for recording sessions when time permits. I will be home for the next three weeks and hope to get allot done in the time I have. Rex was over this past Saturday and we were able to lay some tracks down and also record our first of many to come pod casts.

Without further ado here is the media!


Podcast

Since everybody and there mother seem to be making podcasts these days we decided to be followers and create or own. This is our first attempt at it so its a little rough at the edges but has some good info inside of it. We will be doing one of these every time we get together so if anybody has any questions that they would like the answer to let us know and will put it in.

10:22 pm - Media and Informational Update

We have been working hard in the studio the last couple weeks. I am trying to get as much laid down as quickly as possible with out rushing. I received some news from my job that I may be traveling for 30 weeks all over the world. So this means I wont be in my home studio to keep working on the album for pretty much the first half of next year. This doesn't mean I will stop working on the project though. I recently purchased a M-Audio O2 , its a very light wait very small midi controller. It fits in my laptop backpack with no problem and conveniently has targus lock on it. So what I do not finish off in the studio before the end of the year I will take with me on the road. In the process of recording this album so far everything has been recorded modular. Not one ounce of the working tracks I have been posted were recorded strait from beginning to end minus the demos. Modular recording is the possess of recording your songs in separate "chunks" and piecing them together to make a coherent song. My only issue is getting use to only have 25 keys at a time to work with and missing all my hardware synthesizer I have been using on the album up until now. Also I will be unable to record any vocals while on the road. I hope to have all the final cuts of our vocals recorded before the end of the year though. As soon as it cools down here we will start laying them down. I have tried a couple of times in the last few months but it is way too uncomfortable to turn off the air conditioning and ceiling fans for any amount of time in this God forsaken heat in Arizona.

This is a pretty close to final take of Nostalgia Late. This version has the long elusive Guitar tracks included. Pretty much all that needs to be done is re-record some of the vocals I'm not happy with and then EQ and master. In the final mix I will more than likely turn down the guitar and bass because there is some minor clipping to get rid of.

This is the demo for what will become Desolations End(See below). I really liked this take but everybody kept saying it sounded like The Legendary Pink Dots. Which isn't a bad thing but I want this album to sound unique and not like I am trying to mimic a band so it was changed quite a bit in the real take.

Here is the working version of Desolations End/Post Reprise. It was a great feeling to get to this point in the project. We have now completed half of the album and it has been a tough road. As you can tell I speed it up a bit and added a long chorus and the post reprise at the end. I think it sounds great and I am very happy with this version. I just started working on the drums last night so they are really rough and I haven't mixed down any tracks at all so its still at a rough point. Plus I need to get all the pieces mixed together and make smoother transitions (Modular recording at its rawest!)

Don't worry we are still here. Since the last update allot has happened. The worse of which is I had two of my keyboards break down and needed some repairing. Both are back in the studio and working like new. The other is a casualty that comes from the evil empire known as Online Shopping. As you may or may not remember I said I was going to be ordering the Novation Remote 49 Midi Controller in my last update. Well I decided to spend the extra $100 and get the Novation Remote 61. They were supposed to be released at the beginning of April, so that's when I placed my order. Well it turns out they were not released until the beginning of May, and I didn't receive mine until the middle of May. When I opened up the inside box it looked like Ace Ventura had delivered it. After I opened that box there were three keys broken. So I called them up to setup a return where I give them my CC number and have them send out a new one limitedly and they charge my CC and as soon as they receive my broken one they will remove the charge. Well it turns out that they were out of stock. I just received my working Midi Controller 2 weeks ago. Also some where during all this I got the bright idea to get a real Producer Workstation (Fancy word for desk). So I found this one I really liked and placed the order. They told me two weeks and I would have it. Fine I'm still waiting for the Midi Controller anyway's. I so after I order it I get a call from the shipping company telling me they would deliver it about a week and a half after I had ordered it. Well only one piece of the desk arrived. Call up the place where I ordered it from and they said they would look into it. Since they are just a middle man for the company who makes it they have no idea what's going on and has to research it. Two weeks go by and I haven't received a call back from the place I bought it from or the company who makes the desks. I call up the place where I order it from and my sails rep was surprised that I still haven't received it yet. He promises that he will get back to me that day with an answer on where the rest of my desk it( All this time I really don't have a place to correctly setup my computer let alone all musical equipment to record with). He ends up calling me the next day and says that the reason I haven't received it is the people who make my desk ran out of wood! So as soon as they get more wood I am on the top of the list to get the rest of my desk. Well two weeks ago I received the desk. So now I have everything setup and talking together again and all is good. I think Ill just be a little more hesitant ordering off the internet again.


So there really isn't much to update on the \\Consolation\Desolation album at this time since I have had allot of downtime lately. That doesn't mean we haven't been doing anything though. Using what equipment I had at the time we decided to work on a remix contest of the song Mindstalking by a band I like Lunascape. In the last two weeks after everything was setup I have been in overdrive to finish this before the deadline. Below is a link to the remix, a song we are working on called Believe Me, and some pictures of the studio.

Here is our take of Lunascapes Mindstalking. We wanted to make it sound as if it were our song, so its not really a remix in the normal since more of a re-imagination. According to the rules of the contest I'm not allowed to post an MP3 on external links so here is a link to the acidplanet webpage where you can listen to it.

Here is a rough mix of Believe Me. This was posted as Song 5 earlier. This was a quick take with some vocals to see how it sounds. I'm not sure I like the lyrics or how I'm singing in this so it probably will change.

12:07 am - Media and Informational Update

Well I get my bonus check on the thirty first and I decided to hold off on the near field monitors for now and upgrade to a midi controller. I have kept a watchful eye on Novation for a while, but the 25 key Remote just couldn't keep my interest. I knew they were releasing a 49 and 61 key version but alas there was no release date. Well I am happy to report that they have now gone retail and are available at an online store near you. Here it is and this will be my new baby for a while. The passion of the Novation Remote 49 is apon me.





I have held out on the VST plugins for far to long and its time to take the plunge into the unknown. At $400 its not a really big gamble and I should get some use out of it. As far as this eclipsing the current sound we are achieving I wouldn't be too worried. This will be a toy for now, but future projects this will be my tool.

This is a pretty close cut to the final. Bass has been added and some additional vox touch ups. We were so busy perfecting the bass that we didn't have time to lay down any guitar work. Hopefully we can have more for you after this weekend.

The following media listed took place during many different dates and times.


I spent most of Sunday reinstalling the web server.  I didn't get all the applications I wanted installed and configured because of the many issues I ran into getting everything to talk to each other. So the links listed below might not be available for short periods of time during server reboots while I finish configuring it.  For the most part everything is up and stable at this time.  I also put up a place holder for www.sunsetdisease.com that just has a link back to here for now.


In other news I just got my copy of NI Battery 2.  I can't wait to start diving into this and see what I can come up with. 


I noticed I haven't posted any work in progress material in a while so last night I made a quick dump of the track we are currently working on.


Music/Sound Bytes


The musician playing on the listed track is Scott Loyd


Here is the first 43 seconds of "Song 5" as I'm calling it for now.  I really love this into, its all strings and very orchestral. This is still a work in progress so the mix is a little off and some notes need to be touched up.  Hope you enjoy.

10:45 am - Information update

Now that I finally got around to registering sunsetdisease.com its time to revamp my web server.  So this weekend most of the pictures and song links listed on this journal will be broken during the upgrade.  I did a full backup on DLT just in case I really needed something and delete it on accident.  Ill be formatting the partition the current web server runs on and starting fresh.  I just have to much junk up there that is taking up space and will not be needed for the full www.sunsetdisease.com web site.  Plus it will be nice to have the latest versions of Apache, PHP, and MYSQL.  Once everything is fresh I'll make a quick flash opening page for www.sunsetdisease.com that will probably just point back to this live journal for now.  I don't want to spend to much time on creating a webpage for the band yet since there really isn't a lot to show for at this time.  My computer time will be much better spent working on the music.


In other news Nostalga Late posted on sound click reached a chart position of 24 on the trip-hop charts.  The version I posted there is an updated one from the posted in the Anatomy of a Song update on the 14'th.  So have a listen if you'd like. Over all I've been getting pretty good response from the community over there on it.  I still need to get Rex and Chris over to lay down some guitar and bass but the song is 90% complete.


Well that's it for now.  I will let everybody know when the upgrade is finished this weekend.

Well I fixed all the old links to the new Domain name so all should be working again.  If you find anything broken just leave me a note and I'll fix it.


In other news I had a weird mean visitor hanging outside my studio the other day. 



He was one pissed off animal.  I still cant figure out what the heck it is.   A person at my work said it was a Civit Cat, but I cant find any info on what they are. So I guess I'll just say he's a Chupacabra.

My ISP got a hair up their ass and changed my IP so none of the past links will be working at this time. I just registered with DynDNS with a Host name and IP pointing to my server. It will take about 72 hours for it to delegate to their DNS servers. As soon as Its working I'll fix all the links below. Sorry about this, but after the DNS is updated this wont happen again.

9:46 am - Anatomy of a song

Sorry I haven't posted an update in a while.  Rest assured I have been very busy in the studio working on new tracks.  It seems every time I sit at my workstation at home I just get strait to composing and forget everything else. Below will be 4 tracks of the same song as it has progressed from a test place holder to an almost completed track


Music/Sound Bytes


The musician playing on the listed tracks is Scott Loyd


This first cut features the bare bones of the song.  I ran a test vocal track as a place holder for timing thes measures of the first chorus and break. Also the lyrics wern't completely finished yet so they are different from the final listed below.  Everything is centered and really muddy, but you'll get the picture.

Nostalgia Late
Take 1 MP3 320kbit,.9.8 MB Running Time 4:14 Minuets</p>
Here is a second dump with more stings and a temporary vocal track through the complete song.  Again this has alternate lyrics from the near finished song.  Still everything is center panned and not mixed.

Nostalgia Late Take 2 MP3 320kbit,.9.8 MB Running Time 4:12 Minuets</p>
The third dump more closely resembles the final post.  This take features the final lyrics but a different vocal recording.  Also this has more stings and piano added.

Nostalgia Late Take 3 MP3 320kbit,.9.6 MB Running Time 4:12 Minuets</p>
The last one here is pretty much completed.  I do need to redo some vocals, add bass and guitar and mix it a little tighter but its still a work in progress.  This has a lot more synths, strings, piano than the previous versions.  Also the drums have been touched up.

12:38 am - Media and Informational Update

All the following media listed took place during many different dates and times.


Where to begin? First off I would like to apologize for such a long break in between updates. The last two months have been full of disappointments with my computer. The major letdown was the new sound card I purchased. As you might remember I stated I was going to acquire a Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro. Well I did purchase it, and not to be to blunt the sound card is a fucking piece of shit. I did get a good price on it, but I could not believe that the suggested retail price of $250.00 would produce such substandard audio for recording. Look for it on e-bay soon ...Needles to say I was disenchanted with the whole thing and didn't spend much time in the studio. I could go on and on about audio converters and the flat out lies on the specks but I don't want to bore you. Next up was my power supply decided to go south after my latest mod endeavor. I decided I needed to sleeve the power supply cables in chrome to bring better air flow into my case, but in the process I basically blew out one side of my power supply leaving only 200 or so Watts to work with. All this added up to me just watching Tivo and DVD's and spending less and less time in the studio.


Well I decided I didn't want to be a couch potato any more and needed to get things rolling again. First up was a Pro Audio Sound Card. I was through with this armature shit, I needed something professional. Luckily we were able to get a great price on a EMU 1820 Pro Audio Sound Card(Thanks again Rex). Also I picked up an Antac 550 Watt custom sleeved to chrome with some other nifty features. This is a great power supply by the way, I am very impressed.


Since this is a Live Journal dedicated to the Sunset Disease Music I will get back to the EMU. Man this has to be the greatest audio purchase I have ever made. I though I would be regretting not spending the extra money on the EMU 1820M for the Pro Tools Converters, but who the hell cares. This card is doing everything I have ever dreamed of and more. The sound quality of this card is astronomical and kills any sound card I have ever owned. But the customability ohhhh man for the week before last I spent nothing but trying to figure this thing out. The flipping manual is over 100 pages for christ sakes and this is for a sound card. Well I'm happy to report I have this thing figured out to a tee. Once you get the basics of it its great. My only complaint I have is the lack of WMD support, but I can live with ASIO.. hell the ASIO drivers sound a million times better than the Creative WMD drivers for the Audigy 2.


So for some good news I am full time back into the studio. I have been in here recording tests and and songs for the past two weeks. The quality of the recording has never sounded better and I can not be happier. So look forward to more frequent updates as now there is nothing stooping my now!


Oh and if you didn't notice the image on my previous update the album will officially be called: \\Desolation\Consolation. More on in another update.


One other upgrade I finally decided on is hooking up duel monitors. This is really speeding up the recording and mixing process.


Enough of the update here are some audio files...

This was the first attempt of multi tracking on the new sound card, but you can still hear the vast improvement of the quality of recording. This still could of used a better mix down, but I was mainly just messing around to see what this card was capable of. As you can notice all the hum and hiss from previous recordings has completely been abolished. Also from now on I am going to be posing higher resolution MP3's.

All the following media listed took place during the recording sessions on Date of 04/30/04 through 05/12/04

Worked more with the experiment in both strings overdubs and layering and the idée fixe implementation into an existing sound. I'm a little bit happier with the Transition/metamorphosis and would like to work on leading in more. I spent time mixing down this session in a stereo leaving the center pan and focusing more on the left and right stereo mix. The temporary vocal tracks are posted along with a temporary guitar and bass backing. So far this has been the most complete track posted so far and I feel I'm on the right track so far with this composition. I still need to flesh out the song and bring it to a 5+ minuet track but so far I'm pretty happy with this demo.

These sessions has been an experiment in both strings overdubs and layering and the idée fixe implementation into an existing sound set. I'm not entirely happy with the idée fixe transition/metamorphosis and would like to work on leading in more. I spent time mixing down this session in a stereo leaving the center pan and focusing more on the left and right stereo mix. I should have some vocal tracks posted with this set this week and I hope some guitar work. So far this has been the most complete track posted so far and I feel I'm on the right track so far with this composition. I just need some sound adjustments, guitar, and trip-hop back beat then this song is ready to press.


Also I please invite you to to read a post from Rex Lewis on his feeling of this album.

Sorry for the long delay in-between updates.  I decided to spend some money and make some upgrades to my computer.  One of the upgrades was adding an additional 512MB of memory to my motherboard.  After the memory arrived and I installed it I soon learned that one of the DIMM sockets did not recognize any memory so I had to RMA my motherboard and was without a computer.  But everything is back up to normal now.  Besides the memory I also upgraded to two SATA 120 GB drives running in Raid 0.  My computer is screaming now and I should have plenty of space to store all the Audio Files without having to archive older stuff for lack of space. Another good feature of the hard drives are with the faster pipe and Raid 0 I should have no problem getting well over 60 tracks of audio if ever needed. Also in the upgrades We decided to start using Cakewalk Sonar 3 vs Cakewalk 9.  Big improvement!!! I cant say enough great things about Sonar 3.  Also coming soon will be A new Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Platinum Pro.  With the new sound card I will be able to record a studio mic to keep notes with and give you all another incite into our recording process. 


The following instruments recorded on this day was Guitar and Bass

Multi Track Guitar, Multi Track Bass run through of riff.  This is a much cleaner one than posted before, we have pretty much eliminated all the hiss coming out of the Line 6.  Plus this is much more closer of the sound I was looking for from the Guitar and Bass.


Track 1 2.1M Running Time: 2:15
