I know people like to post covers (well me anyway), and besides submitting them to the site there wasn't a real place to put them.

Here's what I did tonight:

Guitar direct to PC. All tones were created with Line 6 Pod Farm. It's pretty difficult to get a good distortion sound using digital effects. It always comes out thin. But I spent quite a bit of time layering and overdubbing guitar tracks and fixing minor tweaks. After I was done there ended up being about 40 tracks.

Lots of reverb, delay, phaser, wah, this weird tunnel effect that makes is sound like you're playing in a cave. Pretty much everything you could think of.

I'd be in for it. I thought about tackling Porcelina, but there's A LOT going on in that song. I'd love to attempt it. We definitely need a Pumpkins.net collaboration.

Have you guys seen the Virtual Zeppelin band. It's pretty cool. They all record their parts and send them to each other. They've never met and only talk through email. It's awesome. I think there's a Virtual Rush too.

I can somewhat tackle moderately difficult parts in a semi-satisfactory manner.

I'm no drummer, but I may be able to do some if we can't find somebody else. I'd be a lot better if I actually had a kit to play on at home..

Dude, that is a sweet idea! I'd be up for it! I play guitar too, but I have a wealth of instruments I could add that I can somewhat play, including piano, thumb piano, and flute.

I'd be willing to do all the mixing and editing as well.

I'm having a fun time imagining all of the backing tracks we could put into porcelina to make it our own (flute and piano! yeah plz)


I wouldn't mind trying hummer or something either.

Ok guys, lets do it!

First off, what does everyone use to record (audio that is)? Do you have access to direct to PC, pre-amps, or at least decent mic's that have some noise reduction? I say this because it'll sound weird with a bunch of different recording types.

Next, song suggestions?
I was thinking Rhinoceros (I already have a digital drum track that's pretty decent), Hummer, Glynis (I think Easternmind could do some good stuff there), or I've always wanted to do a Machina track maybe This Time or I of the Mourning?

I say This Time. It'd be good with all the synthy parts/piano, several guitars. Plus we should sort of start simple, then maybe we can move on to Porcelina.

I've always liked This Time. I would vote either that or Hummer.

I've got a vox head with a direct out, but I don't have a good connection to the computer besides just coming in through the 1/8" jack... never did get around to picking up any usb interface or anything.

Re:The Cover Thread 9 years 11 months ago #64707

this time and hummer are my 2 favorite songs

i have two options: Zoom H2 or i could plug all of my effects and stuff into my Boss ME 50 and just have that go straight to the computer?

I should probably mention that my flute and piano playing is rather limited, the piano being better than the flute. ;)

Apart from that, I'm down for any song, though I have to say that Glynis would just make my day!

But yeah, I wonder now why we didn't all think of this years ago! Haha. I'm really excited to work on this!

I use Audacity for all of my recording. I think the best method for doing this would be to export all of our separate pieces into 320KBPS MP3's, and then we can use our own individual programs for the layering. We could exchange our emails and email the pieces back and forth, but I imagine it might be easiest if we could have some kind of site to upload them to. Does anyone here own any websites that they could create a page for?

I have a studio mic that I record everything in to. It's good for vocals and acoustic guitar. I've recorded directly into the computer as well, but I haven't done that for a year or so. Usually recording from the amp with the studio mic turns out just fine as well.

I've made hundreds of recordings in Audacity.

And oh! I have a keyboard with all types of great effects on it that I love putting in songs! We could do like an instrumental piece even, some kind of Mellon Collie Theme stuff or something.

I just learned This Time, and I'm down for it. Can't really sing to it very well without a capo because of my high voice.
