You might recall from our request video for this song that we're looking for a part to fill the 'dead spot' in the pre chorus sections for this song. Well, I went ahead and arranged up parts for two trumpets and two trombones, keeping it pretty simple as far as instrumentation, because it's a really dense mix right now.
As always, any further ideas are welcome! But these parts are ones we want for sure.
I've included mix excerpts of the 3 sections we're focusing on, with sampled horns to mock up the parts, to give you a reference. They sound pretty solid, but they get a little strident at the end...We don't want to go THAT big and brash at the end, really. Of course though, it's gonna sound SO much better with real players : )
I enlisted the help of the multitalented hitRECorder Krrr, who so perfectly and clearly created the charts in the zip. Many thanks to him for his invaluable help with this!
first prechorus audio file starts at measure 21
second prechorus audio file starts at measure 53
third prechorus audio file starts at measure 90
IMPORTANT NOTE: I cut the first 8 bars out of the second prechorus. The reference mix and stems I uploaded a few days ago do NOT include this cut...They run longer. Therefore, if you place the reference mix/stems in a timeline, you'll need to snip out measures 53 through 60, and rejoin them together, in order to keep the chart's bar numbers aligned with the RECording.
Sorry for the confusion : / It's a process...

Just sharing this with everyone, before I go hacking away at it:
This is where I'm at right now with this track. I wanted to make sure people get to see how cool Wunderboy's 8-bit remix is. As you'll see, I dropped it in at the section for the third verse, rearranging a few things, and then came back out of it to return to the smoother thing from before. But, as awesome as it is, I'm gonna drop it from this mix, after all. Why? Cuz it's gonna be too much of a departure for this particular RECord, I think. It's a great remix in its own right. But this RECord has such a good, simple / solid "groove" thing going on that a big left turn like this, while exciting and well-executed, deserves to be, like I said, a remix in its own right.
But yeah: Check it! It sounds GREAT! Great work on Wunderboy's part. And, as you'll notice, I've kept some of his other adds...The horn hits are pretty much indispensable at this point : )
For this song, we want to keep it soft and sort of ambient, so whatever we do, it should be on the flowing and legato side. We're probably not looking for drums, or for anything that's gon...

Here is the String Chart for the new "Life Is Shit Without You In It" remix. I output it directly from Pro Tools, so there aren't any markings besides notes...Which is why I included the sample mock-up mix; Sorry if it's a little rudimentary...Should be enough to work from : ) Thanks to raquelpspinto for writing the part: I've really only fleshed it out a bit.
