    I think,that because of the sparse amount of production on Freedom Road, that song leaves a lot of room for the team to put in their own ideas. But, because of the genre, it might turn out to be kinda "locked" and actually turn out to be a hazzle to include loads of instruments on. It is a strong song, and that's important. I just feel, that we aren't participating to produce a strong ballad, but to play our instruments and have fun.

    I feel the last part would be easier on Refugee...

    Just a thought when wearing my "producer cap"...

    I did not vote because it seemed like the actual "band" should pick the song they want to do. Once there is a decision, I can get you lyrics and chords.

    I personally think refugee would be more fun and I think I can bring more to the table than with freedom road

    It's vintage only if it works. Otherwise it's just an old piece of junk !

    globule would sing better freedom road, so I guess we should go with it.

    With great monitors its easy to hear and fix problems but hard to enhance things that already sound good.

    With hyped monitors, everything sounds good so you don't hear the problems.

    With bad monitors, it seems easy to make absolutely anything sound better because you are really fixing the sound of the monitors rather than the sound of the recording.

    Just bear in mind we'd have to transpose it +1,5 tone to be good for me

    I think tempo is OK, maybe could be a little little faster, just really 2 or 3 points.

    Maybe I'm wrong and it's ok like this.

    Let's start guys!

    I do not have any special preferences but in a projects like this it is crusial that all the tracks line up properly. So I suggest that everyone should stick to 24/44100.
    The first one to record a keeper part should add a count in for at least 2 bars.
    Everyone who records over that can print that count in in the beginning of their respective parts, so that any possibility of files not lining up could be eliminated.
    When in doubt, mumble!

    EVERYTHING SOUNDS LIKE SHIT IF YA LISTEN LONG AND HARD ENOUGH.

    I just realized what a gaffe I have done!
    I wrote "freedom road", meaning "refugee of love" !

    Sorry man, I just swapped titles in the night.

    I need some sleep!

    Yeah - what's the next step? Usually the drums get tracked pretty early on, but I kinda need something to play along to... Maybe a click and some guide chords on guitar/keys and a guide vox-track... Is that the way to go about it?

    Also maybe we should decide a way to communicate that is a bit more efficient and direct than the forum, don't you think ? It would be easier to get things flowing.

    Any suggestions ?

    I'd say facebook, with a private group.
    Or google hangouts.
    Or skype.
