"That kind of time shifting can be dangerous. Ask Yvette Mimieux.
If you do, I recommend zooming in on the waveforms of the tracks in question, to see where the peak transients align. If a track is shifted so that the peaks are going in the opposite…"

"Hm... I dont KNOW, but... I wonder if time shifting on the hard-panned Left and Right track would help or hurt?

IE, the center is the "base time", shift the Right track LEADS teh time base of the center by "X" miliseconds... the Left track LAGS the…"

Jamie Cleaver replied to Raina Ashford's discussion 'Yahweh'- new song with middle-eastern/Indian flavour
"Hi Raina, - I really liked your track, - especially when the drums start up!

Regarding creating a choir with 3 voices, - I'd go with what has already been said, with the addition of one extra trick, pitchshifting. I'm not a PT user but there are…"

"Hi i like your piece, especially the drums. It's exciting to think how it will sound with vocals.

Doug mentioned exactly what I usually do and that is to record the group multiple times. The more the better. In fact, if time allows have them do…"

"3 vocalists as a choir? Record them multiple times and then layer them in PT. Make sure they all have the same reverb. ethnic/earthy might be attained by using less reverb, for a more intimate feeling. Less reverb/echo will make the singers less…"

"Sorry -need to to explain both songs.

Jasmine wind + Jasmine dance are same song.

I did Jasmine wind first..but for an assessment I had to use some vocal track (actually my own) so I just added it on a new copy. So really I just put J wind on…"

Simon Godden replied to Raina Ashford's discussion Jasmine Wind
"Raina, if they are supposed to be different pieces, it would be a good idea to write them in different keys to distinguish one from the other. When 'Jasmine Wind' started playing, I thought it was the same piece revisited.

You have a long way to go…"

Jonny Walker replied to Raina Ashford's discussion Jasmine Wind
"Hi Raina,

I really like Jasmine Wind, it has a very serene feel to it, beautiful piano playing too. Like you, I started out with little to no music theory knowledge and learned by ear. I encourage people who are starting out to learn by ear as it…"

Hayden Isaac replied to Raina Ashford's discussion Jasmine Wind
"HI
I really like it. it has a nice calming effect about it, and i wouldn't call the voice weird at all. I think it suits the piece. The only thing i would say, is more of a personal taste thing, being a fan of minimalism myself :P. Is maybe work on…"

"Hi Raina--

WOW..VERY nice!!

Haunting, reflective, and I enjoyed the change in the middle--

and I myself wouldn't LET it..just let your original voice…"

Grant replied to Raina Ashford's discussion Jasmine Wind
"I really enjoyed both pieces, not sure if that's live vocals or EWQL's voices of passion, but I think it really works here. Lovely changes and melodies, and forgive an old mans obsevation but, you are very cute as well."

Ann Rodela replied to Raina Ashford's discussion Jasmine Wind
"Maybe you could build the tension with more repetition, maybe darker chords in a lower octave, or faster tempo traveling
higher in octaves then returning to the tonic key?
