Recently I`ve been postponing posting. Sorry about that!
These days I have finally been feeling like life is worth living, and that I have energy now to blog.
Recently, in the studio I have been working on editing for DJ Ali, Michael Jackson`s tune “Beat it”. He edited the song himself, but working in the Professional enviroment with tools like Sound forge, you can get more surgical edits. which is what I have been up to recently for stillbliss. Also transposing the track from Eb to C.
I have also been in Contact with our good ol` client Chris Larke/Commander/Ekral.
He is asking us to mix a track of his, by sending us the Stems and telling us what to do by text.
We also mastered one of his trax as well.
Well thats everything bliss.
For the next few days I am free as a bird. Which is something I have been looking forward to for quite a while.
Ok folks! Keep it Bliss!!
Yesterday I was given the opportunity to master two trax for the ever talented Lone wolf Rapper Elvaughn Riley.
We used T-Racks 3 standard, the compressor and clipper. As well as the Waves L2.
We use both companies- Waves & Ik multimedia. Mainly because IK multimedia`s T-Racks adds that phatt/warm, sound to the track. Then to boost things a bit more, we run the Waves L2 Maximizer in Sound forge to get the trax up to commercial levels.
For the most part, we do not touch the EQ, when mastering. But of course if the song really cries out- PLEASE USE EQ! Then by all means we will.
But for the most part the classic compressor and clipper in T-racks standard 3, and the Waves L2 dos the trick.
Well. You are caught up with all things bliss.
Yesterday we packed a good two hour session with Lone wolf productions Elvaughn Riley. this kid knows how to drop dem beatz.
He is actually part of a group that is creating a brand called, Low society, or Lone wolf. I am not exactly sure, but here, I will let his words speak for himself;
“Great studio session you are amazing thank you”
We had lots of fun in the studio, recorded some vocals, through our boutique BLA 173, ad the FMR audio Vintagey compressor, the PBC6a. As well as some Phat mastering for one song!
Overall we are getting a pretty big sounding sound with this combo, going through RME converters into Cakewalk`s Sonar, Producer edition.
So keep an eye out on Soundcloud and soon to be released Stickers, and T-shirts from Low Society, and new beatz all rapped by none other than the infamous Elvaughn Riley!
Anways that`s all things blissful for today!
Come back again to check out for all things Bliss & new in the pop world!
Peace! I`m out!
Today was a good day! Why? Well, I got a job that had to do with audio. I was asked by the infamous Chris Larke to Master one of his songs.
I used Sony Sound forge, as well as Ik multimedia
s T-Racks standard, and The Waves L2 Ultramaximizer for mastering. Listening on the the Event ASp 6s. And using Oasis and Coldplay as reference masterial.
Overall, whenever I get a message asking me for studio related work, always gets me in a happy mood!
After all it`s magic we are working with here at the Stillbliss factory.
Yesterday, I was able to have some fun times in the studio with my band Slingshotmillion2.
We recorded Guitar`s, vocals, and drums.
First off we had our drummer come early, to record the drums. Next we recorded the guitar parts. Then vocals.
I will be working on mixing the track, which is called “1, 3, 4.”
t know why its called that, but I guess anything is pop these days!
Oh yes, by the way, the main riff melody for “1, 3, 4” is my melody. My band decided (Finally), on using one of the many melodies I have been sending to my mates.
Also on another topic. I sent a petition to Abbey road mastering services. Which are pretty dope by the way.
I asked them to redo a master, because the vocals were too quiet.
So they sent a revision. And it sounds Much much better.
You can hear what the vocals are saying.
All that to say. Be ready for some Vocaloid action from Takaki Longfield. Soon to be released on major online retailers.
When it comes to Vocaloid JPOP, Takaki Longfield is quite clever.
He came to our studios, to mix and master. But I told him that this song deserved more than just our mastering services.
So, if you want to endorse our musical endeavours, please buy his NEW song.
The title is called “Summer Spectrum”, by Takaki Longfield.
If you YouTube, vocaloid songs, you will see what kind of style it is.
And all that to say, we mastered it at Abbey Road, where the pop bands go to record, like Oasis, red hot chilli peppers, The beatles, etc, etc.
So it`s very pop!!
If you want to hear it, we will upload it to YouTube very soon.
This post is just to inform you that a new poppy song is soon going to come out with our Label, Stillbliss Records.
Available soon, on Itunes, Google play, Amazon, Spotify, etc, etc.
So! Stay tuned for more Vocaloid news in the future!
And stay blissed out!
Today I worked on mastering, a Chris Commander tune in the studio.
I used Tracks 3 Standard for mastering. As well as soundforge 7.0 with the waves L2 maximizer.
He was very happy with the results.
This tune will also be released on our label.
Stay tuned for more news.

He is singing famous songs at bars and what not.
He uses us quite often, and will be paying me for my services, this coming Friday.
