When you visit my place.
There are no doubts its my place.
Yes, but I first need a DVD copy of Anthology (from which multitracks of Free as a Bird and Real Love can be extracted with the right tools).
In 2009 CollegeHumor held a contest for people to submit photos of the most creative use of obsolete console hardware. My friend told me I should submit my bass guitar that I built out of a PS2 and I ended up being one of the grand prize winners. :V
The winners got their home entertainment “upgraded” from their current obsolete setup to whatever was most cutting-edge at the time, which was an Xbox 360 Elite, 30 brand-new games (stuff that had barely been out a week, like Borderlands and Beatles Rock Band), four wireless black controllers, four wireless headsets, four black play-and-charge kits, a Rock Band 2 full band set with an extra wireless guitar, a WiFi connector, and all sorts of other gaming accessories and stuff to a grand total of about $3000 worth of Xbox paraphernalia. i still have a bunch of sealed controllers and play-and-charge kits floating around because I’ve never needed so many controllers.
After three months the Xbox red-ringed, so yeah. I sent it in and they replaced it, and that’s the console I’ve had since then. Luckily it hasn’t died yet.
As for the CollegeHumor contest in question, they don’t keep up their old contest webpages so I sadly have no direct link to prove it. You can however look at my old ScoreHero thread that I made back when I won (and back when I still used ScoreHero [shudder]).
(For those of you who don’t know, the asker here is referring to “Electricity is in My Soul” which was released on RBN years ago, but has an unplayably broken vocals chart.)
Don’t worry, I have plans to release a patch for “Electricity is in My Soul”. It will be a legal file you can download and place with your Rock Band DLC like a custom. It will replace the vocal chart with a new correct one. It will work on TU5 and Xbox Live. This is thanks to the Rock Band 3 upgrade system being able to replace existing parts of a song with new charts.
I also plan to make a full harmony upgrade, but to install it will take all the extra steps involved in installing anything from the Rock Band Harmonies Project.
As for further SPG customs? I have some plans but they are in much too early a stage to say anything definite,
Here you go guys, I used my multitracks of “She Loves You” to try and make a convincing sounding stereo mix, as discussed in my previous post.
Things aren’t panned all willy-nilly just for the sake of stereo sound; I tried to emulate the mixing used in actual stereo Beatles 2-track masters. Mainly, the drums and bass are in the left channel, and the vocals are in the right channel. The lead guitar may be panned either to the right or the left, depending on if George had to re-dub his part on the recording. For this remix, I placed the guitar in the right, since that provided the best separation. There’s absolutely no “added” material in this remix such as echo, channel delay, or any frequency boosting. It’s bit-for-bit consistent with the 2009 remaster. I considered adding some very muffled stereo reverberation so each channel would be heard a bit in the opposite speaker, since this was regular practice on the Beatles’ stereo recordings back then, and would in fact be artistically correct, but I decided against it since that may muddle the separation, and I’ve tried and tried but have never been able to successfully model the exact reverb characteristics on the early Beatles stereo tapes. Enjoy the song, and wait for it’s appearance in Rock Band 3 soon!
ABSOLUTELY. Thanks for the well-wishes. I’ve been in a legal tumble lately (which is why both my blogs have remained inactive) and why I haven’t released anything since moving from Bainbridge Island.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to taunt you with hints and stuff, I can just straight up tell you what I’m cooking up, and things I’m doing with them:
