Yes I know.

It`s in Japanese. Good time to learn eh?

So, stick around for more of these types of shows. And stay blissed out! !

Another Show of Slingshotmillion`s Yui. On Youtube!

So, we have recently been recording a show consisting of a gorilla called lagoli, with a high pitched voice, and with the front girl fron band Slingshotmillion Yui chan!

The show is all in Japanese, but is funny if you like Japanese sitcoms.

The show is about 15 minutes long. And we will continuely be airing these shows, as the main leader for this show said that they will be coming over to record more of these types of shows.

Here is the link to the latest show. It is in the the fourth showing now.

Enjoy!

Slingshotmillion2, Youtube, Radio recording.

Today, I had the pleasure of working with Yui, and Jun, from the POP band Slingshotmillion2.

We recorded two vocals simultaneously.

We had one vocal in the control room/producers room. Then we had Yui, the main singer for the band who had the iphone capturing video, in the record booth.

I used a waves gate, and Cakewalk`s, pitch shifter plugin for the vocals, which are the main character called Lagoli, for the sessions, that are being released weekly, on their bands youtube channel.

Just type Slingshomtillion, on youtube, and you`ll find it.

I extracted the audio files after listening and editing the channels.

Then formatted them into MP3 files for release by the creator of the channel.

I hope you are satisfied with what I post here.

I try to post whatever happens in this studio here on this website, as well as on Facebook.

We have a facebook page as well.

Ok!

Stay blissed out!

 

Stay motivated, and happy.

Drink your coffee in the morning and keep with all things bliss!

Peace! I`m out!

Youtuber`s come to the studios!

Day before yesterday, we had Yui and Jun from Slingshotmillion, come over, and we recorded vocals & videos for YouTube.

We used a pitch shifter that was a stock plugin already in Cakewalk.

They hadn`t come over since the soundtoys version of a Pitch shifter just up and quit on us.

But now that we had something of value to them they had a session with me.

They setup their iphone to capture the visuals. while I recorded the audio.

We used the Shure KSM 32sl, in the recording booth, where the iphone was capturing the visuals. And me and Jun were in the control room with another mic, using the pitch shifter.

I sent them the audio that we used a gate on one of the channels to make sure the bleed from the headphones wouldn`t come into the other channel.

I`m guessing that everything went well. Due to them not asking me anything.

As usual, this was all done with the waves Power Pack, and the DAW used was Sonar 8.5.

Yes! I am still using the XP version. And yes! I still use XP.

Bliss out peeps. Bliss out!

And early Happy new year! From all of us here in Stillbliss land.

One hour of Skip Taylor!

Today we had the pleasure of having Skip Taylor come over and recorded bass guitar, and some organs using Sonar`s Dimension pro.

He said he is working with other musicians on this project.

So. You want the magic word for the title of the song?

“Melting”

Once I get more info on this song I will let you all know.

Here is Skip`s own view on this song:

“Anyway about the song. It was written with a female singer in mind. The Wicked With from `The Wizard of Oz` would be perfect, but I don`t think she`s available haha. The song has guitar in the arrangement, but it`s not guitar-centric. There`s a little soloing at the end, that`s all. I want the song to breathe, throwing in a bunch of `chops` would just muck it up. Many of my more recent songs have guitar and keys carrying the structure together. The song is about how, when you see someone and you really fall for them, it can have physical effects, like making your body feel like butter.”

Chris Larke mixing, and, mastering.

Today we mastered a track called “Fart Short”. Which is a English version of the Japanese Fart song which Chris asked us to elongate. So that Youtube will pickup the song, so he can profit from the ads.

Chris visited us a couple weeks ago, while he visited Japan. We worked on some mixing of a few of his tunes (as well as recording vocals) that we had on the back burner.

We are still in coherts with Chris Commander/Ekral/Larke. Who has been using us for more than five years ago. He has been using us for mixing, recording, & Mastering.

Today was one of those days. Mastering. He wired us money through Paypal.

We wish you all the success you can get Chris!

We are also looking forward to working more with you in the near future.

We will soon have Alika Arroyo over for recording sometime soon. We are just waiting for his schedule to open up and let us know when he wants to schedule a session with us.

Wishing you both the best for all your musical endeavors.

 

Today`s session with Chris Larke! And mixing for Slingshotmillion2, as well as Editing and splicing for DJ Ali!

Dear reader,

YOU! Yes you! I dont know who I`m reaching or who I`m talking to, but here goes with another blissful post.

Today I awoke to many jobs in the studio. First off, it is damn hot right now in Japan, even though things ARE starting to get cooler. Today was hot, so I was able to sit in an air conditioned control room.

We had Chris Larke over for a recording session.  Edited some parts for his song`s in the works.

We recorded vocals, edited, with Cakewalk`s Sonar 8.5 Producer edition. Using Waves plugins.

And we also worked on a job given us from DJ Ali, from Nagoya. He sent me Stems to a song, I changed the pitch as well as fixed things that were not in the right key, as well, as changing speed on files.

We are also working on a punk rock tune called “My left foot big toenail is dead”. It`s about how the left toenail on your foot gets saved by the toenail on your foot. Kind of a comical tune.

We are waiting for the band leader to call us and tell us that it is a good mix.

Many times we like to mix without having others mention anything about it. But recently, weve been getting lots of petitions, about the mixes we have been sending off. I guess I`m basically tied to this studio.

That`s all things blissful for now.

Tommorrow I head off to an ice-cream company`s tour for free ice-cream with my little family. Should be fun!

New song in the works

Recently, weve been working with Slingshotmillions singer Jun and Yui.

We have been recording guitars, and vocals in the studio.
Its a humorous tune, and we are having fun putting it together. Its called “My left foot big toenail is dead”.

WE are using Sonar 8.5, with RME converters, Shure ksm 32, into a BLA 173, and also into a FMR audio PBC6a.

We have been using this setup for quite sometime now.

It`s a Neve 1073 sound-alike preamp.

We will be working with Chris Larke tommorow.

Will keep you posted about that session too!
