When producers come together and make music overseas there are several things to have in mind. First, the producer can make the track very correct. But timings of vocals might be way out of proportion or is too late or too short in the right placement. What we do first when that occurs? Is to create the track 0.25 Ogg files track out of the steems of the project vocals and the beat into a new project.
Why 0.25? That’s the Edison compression rate for .ogg files, and we need this for the lowest possible file trade for the producer and the rapper. What we do to speed up any render is to put the Edison on master on the project and even on the extra timing project. To render an mp3 and you will notice that the file will become recorded with Edison in 32-bit wav. That’s what you kinda want when you get the project back from the rapper. Perhaps you will just send the .ogg project and you will replace the dry sound in the project with your wav and once again render when timings were corrected.
When we record we use ON PLAY and the time is set here to 30 minutes. Currently, that’s enough. In earlier versions of FL, you can have that set to 5 minutes so you will record 5 minutes at max. And the vocals will be cut if your track is 6 minutes.
When you get the project listed with the track in .ogg and the dry level of vocals and the wet located at the same place as the original recording. “Remember that the dry and wet levels. Which means without effects “dry”, with effects “wet.” Need to be at different timing. Since it’s the dry sound you will want to be shifted.
So tell your producer to actually drag both vocals perfectly lined, which means that the cut he needs to do is a slice on both vocals. When the drag has been done. He only needs to send you the project file .flp after a save. In case you make .ogg versions if the opposite user does not have super internet. -The project will get a maximum of 5Mb.
When we work with the project at the end all you will have to do to perfectly fit the project is to copy your 32bit version .wav file and drag and drop it on the dry vocals. So you replace .ogg with .wav. And then do a render. Copy then the rendered wav from the timed vocals into the project you made the track with, to avoid low quality .ogg sound when releasing.
And you put again on one Edison on the master channel before the fruity limiter which you always have to remove. But by that procedure to put on Edison you can put it on record and try to render one mp3 file. You will end up having the recording fast in the Edison, ending up with faster render, and even wav quality, and it’s easier to save the file with Edison and where and what type of format faster than doing a render again.
TIP: Cut vocals for the rapper, let him do the least work, especially if he bought a beat from you, but you will grab an opportunity to do the mixing if you didn’t manage to time vocals before.
TIP: Did you know that the upper procedure to use Edison also creates a far better in project version of your track? That way you will have what you hear a level of the sound. Especially many people complain of a problem with the procedure to render. And yes, plugins get orders to render, and render is a way different sound level than in a project. So plugins behave differently in render mode.
EXTRA TIP: You will have to chop the dry vocals in the project, it can happen that your project has several different vocal file versions, so you will have to properly set the vocals in the project. The easiest way is to drag the new dry recorded sound in the project and just do the cutting. It’s tedious but people never did succeed if they didn’t at least work for some things.
Enjoy. And, yeah did you know? That you can’t succeed if you feel like doing it when you feel like.
