Garageband Challenge – All sounds and effects are from the free set included with the program. Mixed and mastered in Garageband.
With original vocal track
The hardest part for me was the funk synth guitar riff that plays in the background throughout most of the song. I spent a day trying different things like a wah-wah pedal and some arpeggios. I finally figured out it was just a succession of 16th notes with accents like in drumming. It was a duh moment and I quickly got it sequenced. I heavily EQed the high midrange and added guitar amp, mic, and some pedals to juice the sound but it’s still missing a hollow bell-like quality. Oh well.
First sound I tried.
I used the Taureg Moon Bass with Smooth on the transform pad. Didn’t need to change anything.
I used 2 tracks to layer the sounds.
More to come…
