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!

New Slingshotmillion radio program on air, on Youtube, now. In Japanese.

We`ve recently been working with Yui & Jun of the new age, mixture,  pop punk band Slingshotmillion/Slingshotmillion2.

We recorded Three sequenced shoots in the studio here. Just recently, the editing has been finished.

So, without further ado, I give you Lagoli and Yui.
If you understand Japanese, you might find this humorous.

Lagoli and Yui from Slimiri.

We will be recording another set of these radio programs, next week.

So we will be keeping you abreast with the latest news of everything pop!

Stay tuned for more POP/blissful news.

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.

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!

Slingshotmillion2 Recording session.

They are my band members, and good clients.

We recorded vocals, Tamberine, congas, And claps, and shouts.

Overall it was a fun session. We had the manager of our band sing parts too. He`s on the very left in the recording booth shots.

We recorded for about half a day. Took two breaks.

They bought me a monster energy drink for compensation.

They are a punk rock band, that had their drums, bass and guitars tracked in a commercial studio in Tokyo.

We are recording vocals at this studio, because it would take too long and the budget for the band would go way beyond their budget.

So they came out here with their main leader by car and that`s all I have to say for now.

Enjoy the picture!

A Yui Session.

Today from 11:30 am, we worked with Yui. From the band Slingshotmillion2, which I am also the lead guitarist for.

We recorded Vocals. And mixed and had some fun with filters and distortion, and flangers.

We are using the waves Power pack, as well as Auto tune, by Antares.

We are using Sonar Producer edition 8.5.

This is for the band`s mini album that had the drums, guitars, and bass recorded at a higher end studio. With Neve and SSL preamps.

But the vocals we are doing here at Stilbliss.

I guess thats what`s bliss right now.

Yui, the female singer for Slingshotmillion2 visits us.

Yesterday she came in kind of late. Right around 19:30.
We recorded vocals for the pop/punk band Slingshotmillion2.

We used the Shure KSM 32 Sl, running through our Neve based preamp, the Black Lion Audio BLA 173, into our vintagey Compressor, the FMR audio PBC 6a, into RME converters, then into Sonar.

We are still using the Waves Power pack. As that is really all we need. Of course we sometimes use the R-Verb, and L2 as well as the Trans x, like on drums etc.

But yesterday we got alot done. These trax that we recorded will be used on their new upcoming album soon to be released, where the drums, bass, and guitar all were tracked on SSL and Neve preamps.

But our good ol` Stillbliss factory has been busy.

Just because there are other studios out there aint meanin we aint gettin no jobs.

To the contrary.

We have also been getting job applications from Africa and other countries for interns to work here. But honestly, are you serious?

The music business is dead. Im barely making it by with just me as the producer/engineer.  We dont have the financial resources to pay for another engineer, even though I wouldn`t mind hiring other accomplished acts.

Anyways. Thanks for staying tuned in for what`s blissful these days!

Stay tuned for more info in the near future.
