Hi again! After Experiments album was released I gave myself a little break to clear my mind and to be more motivated (the true is the album was not very popular, not as much as Jarre covers, and it has saddened me a little xD).
This time I've dared to make a cover of Carpenter Brut!. I could say that is my favorite synthwave artist, for me, he is the best, for a lot of reasons: he makes unique melodies and, above all, he makes specially unique sounds. I've been wanting to make a cover of this artist but he has always given me respect, because his sounds are very complicated to get (in my opinion) and, also, it seems that he is a sound engineer, so the final result of each of his songs are very well mixed and masterized.
My favorite song is Turbo Killer, but I've prefered to start with this theme, which is algo one of my favorites, to have a first contact with Carpenter Brut style :P.
The first thing: the superbass is unique, I've been unable to get a similar sound. I've discovered that he uses a synth called Arturia Minibrute and there isn't any similar vst instrument. The only VST (that I have) that it gives me the nearest similar sound is Diversion, from Dimitry Sches. By the way, a very recommended synthesizer, it sometimes has a reduced price, around 40-50€ (although it eats a lot of CPU, you have to be careful when creating sounds).
In the other hand, I'm trying to learn how master a theme. I know that there are limiters, compressors, etc, but I don't know how to use it. Carpenter Brut know how to master very well, this theme is very well mastered, you can open it on Audacity or similar and you'll see only a big rectangle representing the sound... however, it sounds very well without distortions or glitches. For example, I've unable to get emphasis to percusion. You can hear perfectly that kick and snare mixed with the rest of the songs in the original song but not well in mines.
So, nowaday I'm trying to improve my mixes and mastering, I hope one day I can do something similar xD. And that's all!, next I would like to do Turbo Killer. And also, I would like to start with my second album, I hope do it better than first! Furthermore, I would like to make a better logo with the name (see if this name is good or not :P) and do a better cover :)
As always, I hope you like this cover!
