Hey Ott. I'm an american but really like UK spelling and punctuation, a lot of literature is printed in it. I use it occasionally and accidentally, it makes people here very uncomfortable sometimes. You spend a fair amount of time in the US so I was wondering what your opinion is on the different ways of writing things? (Ultimately the american spelling is closer to Latin so some might say it is more correct than UK English, which is closer to French, but to me the UK way is more aesthetically pleasing??)
There is no such thing as 'UK English' or 'British English' - the language is called 'English' and there are many variants, one of which is 'USA English'.
I dislike the way most software is primed to treat English spellings as incorrect and whenever I'm asked to submit written answers to interview questions I always ask the interviewer not to 'correct' all my English spellings to USA ones before publication.
I prefer the way we default to the lingua franca in most circumstances [cheque/check, courgette/zucchini] and in some cases [aubergine/egg plant] despair of the missed opportunity to use the more elegant version. Egg plant? FFS...
I also think 'neighbour' looks more friendly than 'neighbor' and 'colour' looks slightly more colourful than 'color'.
But hey, you say 'potato', and I say 'the starchy, tuberous crop from the perennial nightshade Solanum tuberosum'.
Let's call the whole thing off.
Saw you in Boulder last night - I think you may have a future with this music thing of yours.
Anyhoo, what technique did you use on the initial vocal in "Aubergine of the Sun" ("Welcome - we think you'll like it here...."). I own no vocoders in my little hobbyist's kit but I do have Cubase 8.5.
This is the lyric a parent sings to their newborn, yes?
Hey Ott, You have to be in the top 3 of my favorite artists of all time.
My question is you mention further down that when you have "percussion is all sitting together really nicely so I might bounce down to two stereo stems: Percussion Hi and Percussion Lo. From then on, I treat each stem as one instrument, even though it may be six takes of six different drums"
Could you please go into detail on what you mean by bounce down to two stereo stems. Do you mean you convert them to audio and the audio has all percussion sounds in the stem?
Also by Perc Hi and Lo do you mean freq Hi and Lo?
And last one sorry :P
Can you elaborate on the six takes of six different drums? I do not fully understand what you mean by six takes and I assume six different drums you mean different kind of drums.
Thanks for even looking at these questions. I wish more artists would do this and sorry for the long question.
