To record this piece by Pino Daniele I send the memory of my iMac to 100%… but with the help of the Zynthian I got down to 90%.
Zynthian: Rhodes, DX7, 5strings Bass
Omnisphere: Slap bass
Native Instruments: All Brass
Omnisphere: Acoustic Guitar
Arturia: Moog solo
Voice: (unfortunately) mine
I hate electronic drums… but I had to settle for waiting for a drummer who knows how to redo what Tullio dePiscopo recorded (wonder of wonders).
As always, I welcome criticism and advice. Thank you
UPLOAD! Changed the drum sound and fixed the Moog solo @Wyleu docet UPLOAD2Transferred the midi tracks into audio tracks, inserted EddieKramer in the voice (which in the first part is out of time … to be redone), added Zynthian DX7 and removed the “fast” notes in the trumpets @ricard docet UPLOAD3 Set the voice in time (but I have to do it again) and fix the trumpets…
Being a pianist myself, I first record the piano… in this case a Rhodes, then I put in the bass lines. If I like everything, I start inserting keyboards and various sounds… Drums (being my Achilles heel I record it last…) are my weakest point… I don’t know how to play them decently and I absolutely don’t know how to program midi drums…
For the speed of the piece, you have to consider that in addition to using reversed chords that I’ve been studying for a few months, the piece is in Neapolitan… so it’s difficult for me (I’m from the North) to pronounce it. But I have a Neapolitan friend who gave me a grade for pronunciation and it’s a 7…
To play the Zynthian I use an M-Audio 88 key Master keyboard.
There are some notes to fix and then I mix it better, then I always hope for the collaboration of some drummer in the world… there are none here…
DAW metronome (hard work…much better playing with a drummer)…sometimes I just do the chord rests and then play the piano part more rhythmically on another track…
Acoustic guitar by Omnisphere… I tried to make the chords with the notes not all aligned so that it looks like a pick hit on the strings.
I heard the mp3 file was corrupted…now I replaced it.
Another thing that helps me while recording is singing… no words… just na na na na na
Another thing… in the mp3 file the DX7 is that of Arturia… but I have to do it again with the Zynthian which has a wonderful DX7 that Arturia dreams of…
I love Italian and many of its dialects. I only use a few words in English when making international connections with my radio station… If I had the head to learn a language, I think I would learn Russian (this has nothing to do with the situation in Europe now). My big dream? An evening at the Bolshoji Theater in Moscow… I come from classical music…
It’s right that young people learn other languages… your children are good.
… e grazie mille Nicola.
“Last” can be used to mean “most recent”. Obviously it is ambiguous because it also means the final one although that tends to relay to deceased or retired people. My I hope my last song is not my last song!
