1. The Gear Page is run by musicians for musicians. We listen, we learn and if we misstep we are not afraid to do the right thing. We proposed some changes to the Emporiums. Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    I dig it. Especially "Know My Name." Verses weave into a great hooky chorus and those deceptive cadences that start at 3:20 are delightfully unexpected. Appreciate the layering and detail in the keys. I always like unconventional settings for pop music that still bring the payoff hook ... was looking forward to see where you were going to go with the chorus, yeah, home run.

    thanks a lot!

    the synth/ebow outro (3:13-end) was definitely "all in"...hehe.

    we also tracked/mixed keys and guitars such that one sounds like the other at times.....synthy guitars and overdriven keys, etc...

    How did you get the vocal to sit so "distant" in the mix? Love to know what's going on there. Doing the octaves fills it out of course but it really has that far away feeling to it ... clawing its way out in a very cool lo-fi way.

    hm.

    lotta elements at work there....some doubling, unison singing, some hand operated space echo on the verse, distant vocal harmonies, some plate verb, some distortion, nice vintage tube mic, nice compressor, subtle eq, and an additional vocalist joins the fray in the outro for that angelic sparkle.

    also....aaron is a very good mixer.
