Here is their latest rendition, of their own talk show, on YouTube.
If people like them, they will be continuing with these posts.
It is actually quite comical, if you understand Japanese.
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.
Stay blissed out!
Stay motivated, and happy.
Drink your coffee in the morning and keep with all things bliss!
Peace! I`m out!
How do you start off a post when you have nothing to post about?
Well, how about, how I feel right now?
One of my clients who works on a US base hasn`t come over even though he booked for three times. He paid a cancel fee. But I hope he doesnt do that again.
As you can see dear reader, things arent always as peachy as they may seem.
Every time he said he`ll come, I came to the studio, got everything setup. But he tells me that the navy got in his way.
For some reason, this isnt the first black person`s weirdness.
Another black DJ namely DJ Ali. Said he was going to use our record label, and that he`ll pay me for my time making beats for him.
And EVERY single time, he either said that he didnt like what I did. Or said that he wont pay me for my tme.
As you can see. Studio life isnt all roses.
There are thorns as well.
Not giving up on this blog though.
It`s my dream to keep this studio up and running. But when these people- not naming black people only, but really, if you say you are coming over then dont change your mind.
Thank you. That`s it from me now.
FIVE stars. My fault?….Nope.
Stay blissed out peeps. Stay Stillbliss`ed
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 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?
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.”
This morning I awoke to a beautiful cloudless sky, with the sun shining. I just love sunny days here in Sagamihara.
Today I had the opportunity to work on Chris
s new version of O little town". You know. The one O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.
After all, we will be having Christmas real soon coming upon us.
I bet he was planning the timing of this release, which will be released on our record label, Stillbliss Records.
I sent off the mastered 16 bit audio red book format so he can send it to all the major online retailers for your consumption.
Anyways, just for you geeks out there wondering what I am using for mastering, I used Ik Multimedia`s T-racks 3 standard, as well as the L2 by Waves. I used a Compressor, and clipper in T-Racks. then boosted a bit more in Sound forge with the L2.
Ok folks that
s whats bliss rite now. Hope you`re all enjoying this grand weather. I know I am.
Right now, I am sitting on the floor in my Bedroom/Office, that has my Internet operated Windows vista PC. Some people think Vista is good, or bad, either way, I care not. So yes! Sitting down and listening to itunes POP music. So what is POP culture? And how do I get into it? Well, hopefully this little rant, will do the trick. Ever heard of Jesus Christ? Well, he came as our saviour, out from Heaven. The `Supreme` being. And well, humans killed him. But honestly, being on earth CAN suck. If you are not working or have a job. It doesn`t really matter WHICH job. As long as you`ve got some form of income, you`ll learn how to cope with your budget. I`ve lived all around Japan, as a missionary`s kid. Homeschooled, learned guitar at the age of 11. Been to Guam twice. Been to Okinawa. And am wishing for more travels. As for now, all I can do is just blog. And hopefully YOU, the reader, will like what comes on this blog. We publish promote and help artists/musicians/bands, on their quest to make themselves heard. Ever heard of Jazz music? Well, look it up on Youtube. Or just do a Wikipedia search. But honestly all it is, is difficult to play on an instrument Genre of music. Blues, and POP/rock probably originated from this artform. Some people might think- “Man, if I ever lose all my money, I`ll be broke and be homeless!” True. to an extent. But honestly, what`s pop? Supreme? Human? It`s Family!! It`s pop culture, it`s: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and the internet, which really changed our view of the world. But honestly, what IS pop? I can`t decide that for you. As we all make our own imprint on this world. And in one word- THAT, is POP culture. Give your all to the world, friends, family and just enjoy the rest. Ok. Enough ranting. Time to take a short coffee break.
These past few days, I`ve been working on a new tune by none other than the infamous Chris Larke.
s called "The evil that men do" Its an Iron Maiden Cover song, thats well done, in an acoustic form.
The song was mixed through our boutique gear, and phattly mastered at Stillbliss, by yours truly.
The song will be available for purchase through all Major online digital formats. Through our label Stillbliss Records.
We had fun making it! We do hope you enjoy listening to it as well!
Ok! That`s about everything bliss right now.
Keep in touch and come back again for more blissful news!!
Yes. You heard me right. We also make lyric videos, on request. Today was one of those days.
First off, the bands main singer, asked me to stick lyrics to a certain motor bike picture, which WAS pretty cool. but the lyrics were in Green, as I couldn`t get the lyrics to POP, as the bike had some darker areas.
So he sent me some extra cash for redoing the whole thing from scratch.
Using the above photo.
We will be posting the video onto YouTube soon. The song is from the band, Mother slug`s latest EP called: Mother Slug-Tokyo.
Which was released on our label, Stillbliss Records. Available on all Digital distributors, ie, Amazon, itunes, Spotify, Google play Etc.
It is a solid album, and I highly recommend it anyone into grunge/rock. Total Dope in that area.
Ok! That`s what`s bliss now.
