... but in a good way!! :lol:

 

Seriously this is very good, I'm impressed. I wonder how you get it to sound close, do you work only by ear and try to find the right sounds, or do you first look for information regarding the production of the original to get some insight on the gear they used in the original?

 

Great production work.

 

What do you do with all these tracks you keep producing? These should be sold as quality Karaoke backing tracks or something. I used to do that kind of work for Yamaha keyboards, producing MIDI files of famous songs for their keyboards. The pay was good!! :D

My new Logic Pro Book is out!

Thank you, David !

 

I think I have a pretty good ear to separate the sounds from the tracks in my brain to understand what is THAT sound and what is THIS sound )) Of course many sounds could be masked or something else and for THIS track I needed to find some additional info to make that remake possible.

 

I don't think this remake is superb, I like it but that's all due to some limitations of FM synthesis and the quality of some drums used from Logic library (Damn I hate this Linn drum kick from Logic, why they made it sounding hard ? :evil: )

About this track...Most listeners could say this is just a "basic" pop track from 80s, nothing special....BUT this is not true. There are many instruments were used there and some of them are could give to the listeners misleading representation. For example, the toms...Most of the people still thinking they are from Simmons, but (as I read) that was Roland Alpha preset. This just an example what interesting you can find about this track...

 

Most of my remakes are for sell on our site as Logic projects. Also some people asking to make audio stems from them like karaoke.

Even just looking at the video it really shows off just how many tracks are actually in there. And, when you watch the display and listen along, you can hear what you otherwise might have missed or not recognized. "Pop songs that you hear on the radio" are sometimes much more complicated than they first appear – just like some of the great music from the 70's, where people learned how to play the recording studio mixing-board like an instrument. (I once watched a video on the making of The Beach Boys' Good Vibrations. :shock: Brian Wilson still-is one of those people.)

 

I'm glad to hear that you are making money from these efforts, because you definitely deserve to.

 

I would also be interested in buying a "master-class video" with accompanying files and materials where you systematically lead me start-to-finish through the process of building a track like one of these, choosing and layering the instruments and so forth. It could be many hours long and I might pay a tidy sum for it: knowledge and expertise is well worth paying for. (Just like David's book.)
