Two more great songs, 3LYY!!!
Great use of the looping capabilities in each. Nice stacked sax work.
I like "Barely Listening" best. Bit more of an edge.
I also like the hint of Dave Edmunds in your vox. Good stuff!
Are these vids all performed 'live'?
Seems like it. Great one-man-show, if so.
Yeah, they're all "live." The outputs are hooked straight into my computer for recording. What you hear is the same signal that would come out of the speakers in the video.
I've done recorded stuff before, but the point of this project is to do songs that I can perform live.
I did cheat slightly in a couple ways on the videos. "Barely Listening" and "Vicious Cycle" both join two takes. In either case either of the takes would have been fine, but it lets me get rid of minor flaws... for example in Vicious Cycle, my singing was a little better on one take, but I played the keyboard part a little differently than I usually do on that one, so I spliced those together.
"Sticking it to the Man" is a single take, but I blended one of my camera's mics during some of the sax work to boost the horn a little, because it was a little too far from the main mic by accident.
But the live experience of any of these songs are exactly what you are seeing, really. There's no post-production beyond what I just mentioned. Even the sound samples are triggered live (I activate them with the Blue JamMan).
Really glad to hear you liked them. That makes me happy.
