So, here are my choices [so far] for the HitREcorderly. These are all songs that feature prominently on the Play Count on my iTunes; rather than go by genre, I just figured I would suggest what [in my opinion] are some really good examples of what HitRECord is all about and what it can achieve.
I think all these songs are really strong examples of the collaborative creative process that we are trying to promote. All these records started differently; a tiny song, a poem, an instrumental..and eventually, through various remixes and through the collaboration of artists from all over the world, we are left with these really polished musical records.
These songs not only sound great, but to someone who is maybe not so familiar with HitRECord, the show off the high level of quality that this website is able to produce, and the unique method in which we are producing it.
PS: I also included Long After Twilight which is not a remix, but it's an awesome song!
STEMS can be found in the results :)
I've been wanting to cover a song for The Morning Hollows' HitRECord Covers Collab forever since I mostly record song covers on my tumblr and that's what got me into recording music in the first place. I never could decide on a song to cover, but I finally listened to tonguecutsparrow's song yesterday and decided to try it. Since his song is already awesome, I just did this one quickly and had some fun with a few garageband effects, so don't take it too seriously :)
I haven't had much time to work on this so there hasn't been many changes. Nothing more than eq tweaking. I got rid of the glitch effect on the drums towards the end that pamagotchi rightly disapproved of. I would like to request of pamagotchi perhaps to rerecord the vocals. Maybe two new versions. Not necesarly completely different versions. I would just like to hear the different inflections that are inherent when working on something and then returning to it later on. If you could do one one day and another someother day. I will upload an instrumental track as well.
Ok this one is right.
Heard this lovely tune earlier today, and figured I would make some additions.
I've always wanted to make this song the closing track of a great rock record. It's got a summer kind of vibe. It reminds me of the Wonder Years for some reason. Haha.
I can't wait for the vinyl release!!

2012 REmix arrangement & production by meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
This REmix contains only samples from the RECords resourced. No outside/extra RECordings were used.
this took nearly a full year after the original bass line & 'Ravens' RECords were released for me to 'crack' the idea for an arrangement that worked.
back in April 2011, i downloaded the audio stems that Albert, Sarah, and Matt uploaded to the site, and after trying some ideas that ended up not going aywhere, decided to put this REmix on hold until I could think of something suitable. Sometimes the best ideas come much later. Sometimes, it's better to put your impulses aside and allow time to pass...
in January 2012, I came up with the idea of looping Matt & Sarah's ending vocal lines which created the proper foundation, along with Albert's bass, for the song to move in a cohesive, structured direction. Everything else, the drums, guitar solo, format, followed suit.
And there you have it.
many thanks to Albert, Matt & Sarah <3
