Gears of Rob – dun dun dun

Gears of Rob – dun dun dun

Saturday was our third day of vocal recording, and marks the completion of the main vocal takes! I did a few takes of Five Faced Fist, then some retakes from a couple of tracks I felt needed a bit more energy than my previous takes had given them; I was much happier with my performance this time around.

The next step is to go through each track and find the best combination of takes to put the vocals for each song together. We don’t believe in micro-editing a song too much, as we feel it takes away from the integrity of the song a bit, so we will be trying to keep large chunks of each take intact as much as we can. I’m sure there will be a few bits in each song that we’ll need to do pick up takes of, however!

Trevor and I have started authoring our tracks for the Rock Band Network, which is coming along great; it’s pretty damned cool seeing our songs as they’ll look in the game, even though we can’t test them out on the game itself yet for region control issues (don’t get me started).

I remembered to bring the camera and the memory card this week, so here are some photos of the vocal recording setup:

Rob's trademark style is all over this set up!
