I think this version could have quite a bit of percussion or even drums.

Nice. Do you like some drums or extra percussion added?

Having spent hours trying to nudge the alignment JM just gave me the instant fix... somehow snap to grid had been enabled (I usually don't enable it so didn't even consider checking) problem solved!

Funny, I just sat down to comment on how good it sounds, but JM beat me to it! lol. Love the simplicity and the alignment is much better.

The new version sounds great! Simplicity is sometimes the best choice. With my daw, when I aligned clip(s), I usually chop off right before the ring tone or drum count, then slide the clip to align wave forms (turning off snap to grid and zooming in both horizontally and vertically). I heard your other version too... Sound good!

Tried aligning the bass even closer but it just doesn't want to nudge in perfectly. I'm not sure what the issue is, some format compatibility problem. My DAW is Cubase 7. I think this is an improved version. Dropped out the piano left hand to let JM's bass stay up front, cause I liked the way it provides movement. I know it's a sparse arrangement, but I'm kinda liking the bare bones approach on this one. Check out the mashup of both language versions under "mijn werld". I think both versions have really captured the feel of the music.

I like the song.
Relative volumes and sound in the mix seem good to me.
Drums/percussion are very soft but ...if you like it. It is OK to me.
Normally i am a soft drummer/percussionist and melody and solo should be at front.
Mostly i mix the drums at the level of the accompaniment instruments.
Nice it is developing.
Normally alignment clicks at intro should be exact as one.
Normally the collaborating musician gives his feel to the music.
By shifting the track you change the way the musician feeled and played it.
If the producer by purpose shift tracks he can change the timing feel of the song: forward , on the click, laid back.
Like for instance: drums on the click and bass laid back.
If the shift is to far musicians/tracks start to play/feel off time / out of time /timing error.
If the shift is within margins it just can give that extra flavour.
If the shift is more than 1/32 th it starts being toward off time.
Everybody knows that 1/16 th note shift does for 99% of the people feel as being off time.
I have the impression the overall timing of this mix feels OK and natural to me.

Here's an unplugged version, piano bass cajon vocals and a touch of mellotron in the bridge
3/28/2017 8:05:35 PM
Here is the iso. I made it a bit airy and "breathy" as opposed to the original. Just used a touch of reverb to try and match the mood and music.
3/28/2017 8:03:32 PM
Here are the new vocals. To me it sounds a tad flat. Just had neck surgery and everything inside needs to be strengthened, I guess. Didn't add everything that has been posted, but that's for you gents to figure out. Like the melancholy feeling.

Will get the vocals up sometime today. Life gets in the way every now and then...
3/26/2017 8:38:36 PM
I guess I should have mentioned that it was recorded in Eb...
3/24/2017 8:04:32 AM
jmtessier thanks you are interested in this project.
Always nice to be in a project with you!!!
Hope you have ideas to go further developing the song.
Added some you tube links and a drumtrack that may give some help or direction.
I am willing to redrum after some parts-tracks are uploaded and the song is developed further.
3/24/2017 8:01:15 AM
Will post the vocal iso by tomorrow evening. Glad to see you again JM and Henkjan.
3/24/2017 7:59:16 AM
To give some ideas i searched 108 bpm songs in several genres.
Perhaps you get some ideas what is possible to develop a song or tracks in this tempo.
3/24/2017 7:56:50 AM
108 bpm shuffle blues drums. Just as an experiment.
This drumtrack has the swing/shuffle/triplet feel and is 108 bpm,
so perhaps with some editing this will fit.
3/23/2017 8:26:34 PM
Hey JM, here's a version with no bass. The vocoder solo was something I was playing with in the bridge, but the final version will likely have Rocker's vocal instead.
3/23/2017 8:18:46 AM
Rocker do you want to pop an iso track of the vocals in the Dropbox?
3/18/2017 9:11:42 PM
The videos are great! Nice to see them jamming in the different styles, and the vocal improv to develop a song.
